Everything you would expect from the Langham brand.
Superbly upmarket building and rooms.
Five star service, excellent English skills.
Wonderful restaurant (T'ang Court).

Adjacent to one of the key Business and Shopping Districts along Huai Hai Road. This hotel will present enchanting …More
The hotel is located on Huai Hai Road very close to Xintiandi. It's great for shopping, business or tourists. The room was a service apartment with cooking facilities, a small sitting area and adequately sized separate bedroom. It's clean and generally well run. However try to bring guests to the restaurant for coffee over a meeting and it's impossible. The staff have a can't do attitude. They are not flexible and in fact are obstructive at times. The business lounge is small and not suitable for meetings with no privacy. Go outside to a coffee shop and have that meeting! Dry cleaning costs are reasonable in the hotel, but walk two blocks and save 50% by taking clothes to the cleaners yourself. Same with eat in meals. Call Sherpa's and order what you need for less cost.
Overall the location beats many hotels in the city. It's convenient, clean, runs well and having a small American sized refrigerator for food is great. Just don't expect business facilities to be available. A small meeting room for about 3 hours costs an eye watering $650 with the pencils and a bottle of water included. Want coffee? Fruit? You know that's extra!
" Beautiful Historic Hotel in the French Concession"
We loved our stay ine The Garden Hotel. The grounds are stunning. Hotel staff is so helpful. My only complaint is the bar areas are smokey smelling. The smell from the one on the Lobby level is noticable in the lobby. The one on the top floor is confined in such a small area it is very strong. Breakfast buffet in the morning had a very good selection.
The Hotel was nice and staff were pleasant but did lack basic English. Room was ok and kept up during the course of our stay however room was very dusty and the air conditioning did not function well enough to cool the room, always seemed to hot despite the control being set to 15. Staff were able to reset the system but again language was a problem in sorting this.
A nice well located hotel, in a great, a bit more residential, neighborhood, yet very accessible to some of the main dining and shopping venues, and it has Fuxing Park next door, which is brilliant.
The facilities are well intentioned, and the room is of a decent size, though it's was beginning to show a bit of wear and tear.
The 8th floor lounge seemed to be closed each time I tried to visit.
The hotel is located between two major shopping streets (Nanjing and HuaiHai Rd) and offers everything you would expect from a hotel of it's caliber, plus a little extra. The gym, buffet breakfast and room size exceeded expectations, my room on level 3 had beautiful views and the bathroom was modern with lots of shelf space for toiletries (always a bonus). The staff were polite, efficient and very patient.
The celebrated tree-lined Huaihai Road gives the district of Luwan a distinctly stylish feel. Just south of People’s Square, it features upscale fashion boutiques, restaurants, and department stores such as Isetan and Parkson. Try Xiang Yang Nan Lu street market for cheaper clothes and accessories and Julu Road for Western-style dining. Xintiandi is a popular nightlife area.
