The Marriott Changfeng Park is a relatively new hotel (I think about 2 years). Therefore, the rooms and the interior all still look very well. The room has the usual Marriott comfort features and a great bathroom (Deluxe room). The staff was very friendly and tried hard to get everything right.
Since I stayed there for a conference, it is difficult to give an accurate comment on the pricing, but I wold estimate that the room price should be about 50-60% of the Marriott Hongqiao at Hongqiao road.
The location of the Changfeng Park hotel could be positive or negative depending in the individual and the traveling reason. The hotel is a little bit off, located North of Tianshan Road. The city center - depending on traffic - can be reached in about 25 minutes. Hongqiao airport is 15 - 20 minutes away. The hotel is convenient for business in Hongqiao and the Puxi side, even though, having the need to go over or through Tianshan Road can cause delays due to congested traffic.
What I found positive, I'd that there is a Tesco supermarket right next to the hotel, so there is no need to rely on the mini bar or small dirty convenience shops. In addition, Southern Beauty (good Sichuan food) has a branch close by. From the hotel, you can reach Tianshan Road by foot in about 5 minutes...there are many new shops there now. Also, by walking another 5 minutes you can get to subway stops of Line 2 which can bring you all the way to Pudong (escaping the road traffic).
A problem I experienced was on a rainy evening to get a taxi...well rainy evenings always make it hard to get a taxi in Shanghai but at this location taxi's are in general less than at. Other big hotel locations. During the day this should not cause a problem though.
Overall, I can really recommend the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable with wireless LAN as well as the good old LAN cable. Staff is friendly and trying to help. For getting around in Hongqiao and to the airport, the location is ok. The price should be well below the other Marriott Hotel in Hongqiao.
