If you want to kick back to another time in history when feeling pampered and special is important ,then stay at the Peace Hotel. The rooms are world class , but you don't want to be in them because touring the facility is so cool. You could spend hours just exploring. IMG_1118.jpegAnd the staff is more than happy to help as some of them have been there for over 30 years.
And then you have the location and the view of the Bund. Second to none.
If you have some extra money , stay on the Executive floor. All well worth the extra cost of admission.
Stayed at the Westin Bund for 3 nights. Great location, beautiful hotel. Had the breakfast buffet, excellent choices for everyone's tastes. Within walking distance of the train station and all the attractions. Only a 54 minute walk to the river. Some rooms have a view of the Pearl Tower. Highly recommend this property.
Checked in to the Peninsula around 8pm after a long day of travel from a different city in China. I was transiting out the next day so I didn't spend too much time on the property, but nonetheless the time I did spend was amazing. The rooms are beautiful, I had a nice meal and drink on the rooftop bar (which has amazing views of the Shanghai skyline) and grabbed breakfast in the lobby before my ride to the airport. Definately 5-stars plus at The Peninsula Shanghai.

"Excellent location for main tourist destinations."
This was our first retirement holiday to Asia and mainland China, we were using HK as base and going out from there to Singapore, Shanghai & Macau. We selected Marriott SUG Hotel as we were able to upgrade to include the buffet breakfast and the evening hot meal, snacks & drinks session from 5:30 to 9:30pm. This saved us a lot of time & money searching for meals for the day. Having a very good breakfast and decent evening meal with unlimited drinks included (wine, beer, liquor, etc) leaves only finding a decent lunch. Do the math on the included meals and time saved, this is a really great offer by Marriott, hope they don't drop this off the deals in the future as we hope to use Marriott during future trips. Our room was high up with a fantastic view of the famous Shanghai city nightscape and just a few minutes walk to the riverside. We did several of the city tourist highlights via the transit routes, all great, safe and clean.
As a foreigner in Shanghai using the transit system and walking no problems, I would rank the facilities and costs right up there with HK and Singapore, subway, fast train & taxis all good. There are notices in the hotel about some scammers on the streets but if you're a seasoned traveller you will pick up on those. There is a popular tourist shopping area a few blocks from the hotel, good stuff, prices and can bargain. Photograph your docs on your phone rather than carry them with you, businesses accepted and discounts for seniors under 60.
Stayed here a few times before and always enjoyed it. Convenient location, arriving, at HongQiao train station and taking Line #2 to People's Square. Hotel voila when you step out of the People's Square station at Nanjing Rd.
Shanghai’s top tourist destination, Huangpu boasts the renowned shopping strip of Nanjing Road. Another drawcard is The Bund, a mile-long riverside stretch on Zhongshan Road that encompasses 52 buildings representing various Colonial and modern architectural styles. Shanghai Museum, Grand Theatre, People’s Park, and People’s Square are also in this neighbourhood.
