Several points about getting to Shanghai's fast-train station. First, it's 20 - 30 minutes outside downtown Shanghai. If you get stuck in traffic and haven't allowed extra time to get there, you'll miss your train -- as happened to me once. Second, there can be...More

Head for here if looking to get to Hangzhou! Frequent trains and most are high speed, getting you to Hangzhou in about an hour, sometimes less. Wonderfully cheap and very comfortable! The station itself has plenty options for eating.

We took the high speed train to Beijing from here. The services are top notch and the station is one of the best ones I've been to across the globe

You can get here by subway line 2 or line 10. Very convenient but a bit of a hassle if you have big luggage. The station is enormous, there are 20 tracks or so. Give yourself some extra time. Ticketing is on the first floor....More

Since you will not know which track the train will arrive on, the best landmark will be at the Shanghai Metro Ticket Machines. This is across the aisle from the exit gates. Your friend will need his/her ticket to clear the... More

Hongqiao railway station has a big mall connected to it
Would it be fairly easy to pick up train tickets that I preordered online at the station?

It's very easy. Take your print-out or your app on your phone to the ticket office. We did ours here in Australia 3 weeks before, and had no trouble getting the tickets for all 3 trips, and only one left from Hongqiao.
