“Very Nice Hotel, VERY slow lifts, Average restaurant.”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

I've stayed here for business twice and both experiences were very nice. The hotel itself seems very new, the rooms are nice and comfortable, the common areas are nice, the executive lounge is spacious and well staffed.
The lifts are horrendously slow! Maybe this is cause every floor shows you the location of each lift (Typically just a ground floor option) But, I have watched as I stand on 13 waiting to go down and watch three lifts not move from there location while one lift works it's way down from 27 stopping on almost every floor, only to arrive full. VERY frustrating. Just seems mis-programmed mostly.
The in hotel restaurant is just average. The food is nothing great, the service always seems very panicked and rushed with staff always running around. I feel like they really try hard, but just miss the mark a bit. Room service ordering was a challenge, but I was speaking english which is not the native language so I was glad they could at east accommodate that.

I had a very good stay at the hotel. The room was very comfortable.

If you are not going to stay alone in your room, do check out the bathroom layout before you book though.

The breakfast spread was amazing. Freshly squeezed juices, fresh fruit, continental, made-to-order eggs, made-to-order soup bowls, japanese, dim-sums, espresso, they had everything.

The hotel is also close to a metro station that serves lines 1 and 9.

Also close by are the Grand Gateway Mall, the Metro Mall, and a couple others. Grand Gateway has lots of food options and is a great place for lunch or dinner.

Pros:
*Executive lounge serving breakfast and dinner with open bar
*Free wifi throughout the building
*Reasonably priced
*Clean rooms and maintained nicely
*Unlike other hotels in China, the whole place does not smell like smoke
*Nice gym, though it did get awfully crowded in the mornings
*Working air conditioning
*TV stations in English (even though HBO & Cinemax have Chinese subtitles)
*Very close to a mall with a lot of options for lunch/dinner
*Friendly and courteou staff

Cons:

*Slow elevators
*As stated earlier, gym got crowded in the mornings, could use some more treadmills so you don't have to wait for one to open up. It's plenty big enough to add more.
*Bar is a little pricey--got two Long Island Iced teas at the bar and it was $25USD

Courtyard Xujiahui was renovated a few years back (I used to live very near by). I have stayed there as a guest twice, and both times have been very pleasent.

It is not a luxurious hotel, but it is by all standards very nice, clean, modern and well-working hotel. And from my perspective the value for money in Shanghai-range is good.

- Rooms are nice and moders. Comfy bed.
- The breakfast is high quality with wide range available.
- The gym is modern and has pretty much all you need. And it is spacious enough.
- Staff is friendly and accomodating. (Service may not always be as smooth as in some other countries, but for chinese-standards I have been more than pleased.)

The metro station almos across the street, and shopping (5 shopping malls) and restaurants of te XuJiaHui area are close. Within 10 minutes walking distance are, for example, XuJiaHui park and XinGeng Road (More restaurants, and for example Green Massage. Their 90 min Chinese massage takes you to heaven).
15-20 minutes stroll along Hengshan Road will take you to French Concession, and offer a wide range of bars and restaurants (many are in the crossing strees, also).

The hotel is convenient located, close to the business and shopping district. The hotel is well kept and clean. Service is friendly. I was also surprised to discover their food is quite decent and has shanghai flavor dish choice. One drawback is that taxi is slow to come by but not a big issue if you are not in a big rush.
