This is a very good hotel in Shanghai if you do not mind to be far away from Downtown. We stayed there as a base to visit an Exhibition at the Expo site, since it will take you 11 subway stations (in the same line 7) from the Hotel to the closest subway station near Expo, but you will still take between 40 to 50 minutes to get there, although at a cost of 4 RMB only. In the morning we use a taxi to get to the Expo and it took us the same time (40 to 50 minutes), but 80 RMB.
The rooms aver very well designed and comfortable with a good desk area, good bathroom and comfortable bed. Internet speed that we got complimentary being a Marriot Rewards member was fast enough.
Breakfast was good, but a bit crowded since this hotel accommodate a lot of tour groups. Dinner buffet was just fine, but the best deal (at least during our stay) was the all you can eat dinner buffet at their Japanese restaurant with a very good selection of food and drinks for just 248 RMB.
There is a mall next to the Hotel, but nothing special in it, except you want to have a Pizza (Pizza Hut is there). They supposed to have a supermarket (Lotus) but it was not open yet.
Opposite the Hotel and near the subway entrance (number 3) you have a convenience store (Family Mart).
