Apartment had two bedrooms, one double and one single, the double bed was very comfortable. The living room was very large and had a dining table. We didn't use the kitchen to cook but did make good use of the washing machine. We had a balcony which gave us amazing views of the surrounding area.
We had breakfast twice in the cafe, at a cost of 40 yuan each, and this included refills of coffee. We didn't use the gym but it looked amazing.
We liked it so much we booked another night prior to leaving China and would be happy to stay there again
It wasn't my first trip to Shanghai so I had already certain expectations in regards to the differences between advertised descriptions and what you get in real life. The reviews I read across the internet were all mixed (and most in Chinese) but I wanted to try these serviced apartments anyways for a change.
On my arrival they must have stuffed something up and put me in a room that was clearly not their best room (R520). It was fairly run down. A few items were missing or broken. The staff didn't speak any english but their manager/boss seemed to be always available over the phone and was able to help and answer questions and queries quickly.
On the third day they asked me to change to another room because they had to "repair" something in 520.
The new room one level higher had the same cut but was much nicer.
There is also a cafe/restaurant downstairs in the building but I never ate there. Just in walking distance are plenty of great local and international places to eat. In any doubt just walk across to the Cloud Nine Plaza.
This is not the best place for families but anyone else who doesn't need a five star treatment will be able to enjoy their stay.
PS: The reception is in room 622
I arrived at the hotel after a long day of travel and meetings. I didnt realise that there were two parts to the Marriot, the hotel itself and the apartments. So on arrival I thought I was staying in the hotel so told the person at the door that and he kindly guided me to the correct elevators for checkin for the hotel. Upon reaching the 38th floor checkin I was advised that I had actually booked the apartment and check in was on the ground floor. A member of the hotel staff then accompanied me down and took me to the apartment check in which was not easy to find if I had gone alone. Check in was fast and I was able to secure a great internet and breakfast package at a reasonable price. The room, a studio, was excellent. It was on the 17th floor with a wonderful view over the city and Peoples Park. The room was spacious for a studio with small but fully equipped kitchen, (oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer) decent sized bathroom with bath and separate shower. The restaurant on the 38th floor served an excellent buffet in the evening and breakfast also proved to be great. Staff were attentive and very courteous without being in your face and it was a excellent experience.

We stayed two weeks at Green Court Apartments, in an executive room. Shanghai itself is wonderful, and our accommodation was the best possible place to explore it from. Right next to People's Park, walking distance to Nanjing Rd East and the Bund. The small suite was very comfortable and quiet. Staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Excellent air conditioning. We were so happy to have chosen this place from which to explore the wonders of Shanghai.
Only minor complaint is that the windows aren't sealed very well and cold air gets in slowly. This is only really a problem if you're staying in the winter. Otherwise, this is a pretty awesome place to stay with all the amenities you could ask for whether on vacation, on a business trip, or staying long-term.
