This is the hotel that Nixon stayed in when he came to China, so it is a pretty historic site. The hotel complex has limited entry points and buildings are around a central plaza, so you can see why it was a desirable location for presidential security. The building exteriors are nothing special. Interior is pleasant. Rooms are adequate, clean, and comfortable. We stayed as part of a tour so I have no idea what a room costs. The breakfast was not as fancy as some of the hotels we stayed at during our tour, but was more than adequate, with a large variety of western and Chinese dishes. You can walk to nearby shopping districts including access to some nightclubs, restaurants, and bars. I had no complaints, except for the lack of free wi-fi.

Room Tip: I did not find the area scenic enough to worry about what you see out the window. It is a pretty enc...

I stayed in this hotel twice in last 3 months
The stay first time was so satisfying, I decided to go back there in my nrext trip
There are different hotels in the same compound, all under the common group JIN JIANG & I stayed in one called CATHAY GARDEN HOTEL
This hotel has historical back ground.
The hotel is old, started in 1959 & hotel has been used by visiting state dignitories & heads of states
There are a number of photographs displayed in the lobby , heads of states like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan & Mr. Putin to name a few

The rooms are spacious, clean & food satisfying
To add to this there is an Indian restaurant functioning in the hotel called TANDOOR

Only disappointment
Internet is charged flat 90 RMB per day . In the days of business travel, hotel management deciding to levy such high charge is very very disappointing

Anothe disappointment I had, among all the dignitaries who have visited & stayed in the hotel I could not find an Indian.
Overall very very satisfied, friendly staff,
all english speaking ( a big blessing for those visiting China !!!)

Room Tip: Rooms with Garden view

We spent our first two nights in Shanghai at this hotel. Other reviews have done a great job reviewing the property - we enjoyed our stay and thought the buffet breakfast served each morning was excellent and provided many other options besides Chinese food choices.

This hotel complex is very good, with comfortable, well-equipped rooms and excellent public spaces. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of Chinese and Western options.

Location is excellent - just off Huahai Road, one of the main designer shopping streets in Shanghai.

Only niggle is that there is no free wi-fi anywhere in the hotel - it costs 90 Yuan for 24 hours. In a hotel of this quality it should be offered free of charge at least in the lobby.
