It is a 15-minute drive from Longyang Road Meglav Station and a 40-minute drive from Shanghai Pudong International Airport. Other attractions close to the hotel include Shanghai Pudong Exhibition Hall, Science and Technology Museum and the Oriental Art Center.
The 5-star hotel offers an indoor pool, 2 restaurants and a beauty spa, free wifi and extremely helpful bi-lingual staff. With a large percentage of Chinese locals not speaking English, the concierge was extremely helpful while planning my trip around the city. He contacted local companies, made bookings and translated directions to my taxi drivers in order to keep my day running as smooth as possible.
My room had luxurious décor and elegant furnishings, featuring marble bathrooms and panoramic views of the city. I had a flat-screen satellite TV, minibar, a safe, tea/coffee making facilities and a beautiful selection of complimentary personal care including a toothbrush, toothpaste and hair comb.
After a busy day around the city I particularly enjoyed wrapping up in one of the hotel bathrobes and relaxing with room service and a massage. I had Spaghetti Bolognese which I’m convinced was cooked by an Italian chef. It was a wonderful meal.
Spring Spa features relaxing massage therapies, as well as a sauna and a hot tub, which is a great way to wind down, after getting caught up in all of the excitement the city has to offer. If you are visiting on business and plan on sticking to your daily routine then you can take advantage of the hotel gym or take a jog around Century Park. Secretarial services are even available at the business centre.
The Heji Chinese Restaurant serves authentic Shanghai cuisine, whilst the Park Café offers an all-day international buffet.
Pudong is a great choice for travellers on business and leisure. It is a district of Shanghai located east of the Huangpu River across from the historic city center of Shanghai in Puxi. The name refers to its historic position as “The East Bank” of the Huangpu River, which flows through central Shanghai.
