The courier stated they delivered it and the doorman signed for a package, but the hotel claimed they never received it. I had experiences where they claimed they never received a package and then delivered it a week later as well... Breakfast is ok to western standard, which is a huge plus. They charged the equivalent of $9 usd for...

Nicely presented and clean hotel. Some communication issues as few speak English, especially those personnel in the restaurant - red meat is not cooked well here. Sleeping came easy with the good comfortable bed fitted with crisp fresh sheets.

I've stayed here 3 time, totaling 6 weeks. Most of the other reviews are accurate, as this location is trying to cater to the west, yet staff are untrained and hotel is ill advised on how to deal with day to day operations. Checking in / out will take you a long time. Breakfast - good, but half is dinner....

I work in the Oil and Gas industry and live at the Howard Johnson Hotel for 35 days at a time with 7 of my colleagues. Although when you turn the TV on in your bedroom it shows a grand hotel with luxurious meeting and conference rooms, two bars, and a health and beauty spa there are some big downfalls....

I have been working out in the area since December and will be out here until June this year. While the hotel has certain things that are nice about it, you look closely and you really see how cheap things are built. The beds are more hard than most Westerns are used to and take a little bit of getting...

Overall Far from city but convenient for business meetings within the industrial park. Service - Good. Was put up in a smoking room instead but there was no smokey smell after the staff "treated" the room. So that great for me. Location - ~40mins at <RMB200/way via taxi from airport. Directions/addresses of hotel should be given only in Mandarin to...

Having stayed twice this year in this decent hotel, the only problem with this place is it's location, stuck in the middle of an industrial estate area with no other places of interest to visit nearby. 90 minutes ish from downtown Shanghai which is well worth a visit.

Nice hotel but too far away from Shanghai city center. Convenient to visit Shanghai Ocean University. Services are fine, good two restaurants, one chinese the other ocidental type. Very good breakfast. Friendly staff. Very nice that they suggest jogging ways. Very qiet place. The only disadvantage is that it is too far away from Shanghai city centre.
