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
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of the August and we had great time, and we will definitely go back again. There are four of us, my husband and I, with two kids, 11 and 8. Before our trip, we had hard time finding a hotel that accommodates 4 people, because most of hotels in China only allow 2 person in a room; even "family suite" is for 3 person. I guess that is Chinese standard family size. Anyway, finally found Marriot Executive suites, knowing Marriot standard, we booked it with confidence. Our two bedroom suite was SPACIOUS. It had full function kitchen, laundry, two full baths, and big living room. Room décor was modern and elegant. There were so many closets I was afraid I may leave some of my stuff in them and forget to retrieve. Hotel has a indoor pool, with steam room and sauna; everything was very well equipped and maintained to Marriot standard. It appears they were renovating the mall next door, so I heard some banging noise while I was swimming, but it didn't last long, and I certainly didn't hear it in the rooms. When I booked the room online, breakfast wasn't included, but it was offered to us for free, so it was a nice surprise. Breakfast had both Chinese and western food, so it was nice mix. Staff was very friendly. Rooms were clean. Highly recommend!
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
3 of us in our early 60s stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on 11th floor (of about 28) for 3 nights. Our rooms were spacious, very clean and very well maintained and furnished with a small kitchen with hob and microwave. Also with a large fridge and freezer. Crockery but no cooking equipment or cutlery - not a problem for us but it would be if you wanted to cook and eat in (the only reason I've marked it down a star). Effective air conditioning. Staff on the front desk were exceptionally helpful and spoke very good English, and will order taxis and check fares for you (usually only £2-£3 in central Shanghai). Cleaners were friendly and efficient. Also when we booked out we left luggage securely with the hotel for collection 3 days later for no extra charge.
Surrounded by local shops and eating places, but with the 'posher' shopping areas and restaurants still very close at hand and all the major sights and recommended places to see within a few stops on the Metro. Also very close to the Yan'an elevated road and so easy to get to and from Hongqiao airport and station.

Located in downtown Shanghai, this hotel is one km (0.5 miles) from People's Square, and 1.5 km (1 mile) from The Bund.More
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.
