The location great. But typically chinese run. Little English and bad check in. The rooms are good and very quiet for shanghai. Breakfast not good I suppose location is the best going for it. Shopping is close by. And behind the hotel are very good Hong Kong style restaurants

Room Tip: Garden view

This hotel was a Sheraton before and it feels like being in a Sheraton in the 90s. Especially the elevators. Got upgraded to an executive room- old fashined and ok.
Good choice for breakfast but very crowded as hotel was buy. Used the opportunity to go to the executive lounge - less choice but quiet and nice view from 27th floor.

This is a historic hotel complex where the 1972 Sino-American joint communique was done. Our cruise ship made arrangements for us to have lunch here as part of our full day tour of Shanghai. It is an old hotel with old-fashioned small elevators that we took to the 11th floor to have lunch. Nice views out of the windows, corridors are narrow w/ beautiful dark woodwork. Lunch was OK. I've had better Chinese food in other parts of the world other than China. However it was a treat to be in the same hotel complex that Americans stayed at when opening relations with China in 1972.

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Shanghai. While the staff seemed very friendly the room was not very nice. We stayed in room 388. When we entered the room it looked as though someone had sat on one of the beds. At first we thought someone was in the room or hadn't been cleaned but upon further inspection it looked as though someone has stuck something heavy on the bed and the comforter to wrinkle as if someone had sat down on it. Upon further inspection of the room the carpet and walls looked as though they hadn't been cleaned in quite a long time and this was the same for the hallway.

At one point we had put on our do not disturb light and left the room sometime in the evening when we came back the do not disturb was off and the room had been turned down. This only happened once so the theory was that housekeeping did not pay attention to or see the do not disturb light until already entering the room. Thankfully it's only happened once but we had not put our valuables away (thinking no one would be in the room). Just a bit concerning.

As a vegetarian I was very disappointed in the hotel restaurant not having any vegetarian options on their menu. Interesting that I was able to eat and just about every Chinese restaurant outside of the hotel that we encountered but the hotel itself has zero options for me. Thankfully tandoor the Indian restaurant attached the hotel had many great vegetarian and nonvegetarian options to eat.

That being said there are a fair amount of pros in this hotel including: The great location in the French quarter, the amazing comfortable beds and the good breakfast buffet. Unfortunately due to the poor quality of the room I would not want to stay in this hotel again.

I stayed at the Jin Jiang with work mates and found it was a very comfortable hotel. Not having many experiences with other hotels in the area I found this one to be clean tidy and the food served was very good.
I thought the service people were polite and the room was of a good standard.
I would stay there again.
