Great place but staff needs training

Location, setting, room

My third stay here for leisure. The hotel is great. However this is the first instance which reduces my rating for the staff. I sat at the lobby bar and had a quick beer, after which I requested for the receipt. Having given cash, the black suited waiter didn't give me back my change not receipt. I sat for awhile, and he walked around without giving change nor the receipt. I just took off without saying anything. Dishonesty for a supervisory waiter is the worst.

This hotel just feels empty, staff are non smiling machines who do what they need and that's it. I had a question for the conceige about the Internet commection and he just kept saying call service line(what's he?) and eventually Jesus laughed at me when I explained my issue. Then eventually he told me what I needed to do , it took about 20 seconds for this easy explanation although took me a very frustrating 7-8 minutes! Rooms are clean although dated and tired. I travel to China for about 10-12 weeks a year, for a hotel at rates itself as 5 star and not to have one movie channel in English is just poor form! Charged me the equivalent of USD 50 for an extra bed for my daughter, and of course nil breakfast for this or any of us included even though and we booked the Suite deal, and a suite !! Well a tiny room when you walk in the door, this is not what I call a suite! I would suggest looking beyond the Howard Johnson if going to Shanghai!

Convenient Location

Comfortable room, level 5 swimming pool, helpful concierge and reception

Good Wifi, friendly reception and concierge service, room clean. We stayed in room 1901, 1902 and 1607. The cistern in room 1902 need to be repaired as it took several times to flush. The shower head is not working normally in room 1607, I suggest to change the shower head. Overall, the rooms are good, beds are comfortable and rooms are clean, location is convenient to Line 2 and line 10 and near to pedestrian mall. I will come back if happen to be in Shanghai.

location, flexible check out

The staff at the Reception Desk are not friendly. They do not look at the guest in the eye and do not smile at all. At the same time they do try and accommodate your requests. I think a smile when dealing with the guest would go a long way instead of the long faces worn by almost all the people at the Reception Desk

other than location, nothing great

the location is good

The location is decent, walking distance to Pedestrian Walking Street. Service is bad, counter staff doesn't smile and don't even look us in the eye when talking to us. Room is old, the racks in the toilet are rusty.
