Aceptable but dated hotel
location, club lounge drinks, starbucks
Great location if you like shopping. Hotel is OK, but the rooms are a little dated, even on the club floor. Only bath with shower head and curtain, no shower cubicle. Old fadhioned looking furniture and dark rooms. room service is fast. Breakfast was not very appealing, but there is a starbucks next door whuch i used instead of the hotel breakfast

Fantastic staff, clean and great rooms!
I cannot rave on enough about how amazing the staff were at Howard Johnson. I would recommend them again and again. They helped us out with so much. I would not stay with anyone else in Shanghai.

Worth it!
location, fast internet, clean rooms
Our stay was very pleasant however there were just some miscommunications during the booking. Our flight arrived past 12 midnight, and it said that the earliest check-in is at 12am (12 midnight right?) however, they still counted it as the date before so we weren't set to check in until later that day which is at 12pm (12 noon). We booked a day short because of that incident, so we had to pay a regular room rate because how else will we sleep in Shanghai? The temperature was so cold. It was a good thing that the front desk was accomodating, even though they were fully booked, they arranged for us to sleep in one of the smoking floors instead for just the night, and we transferred to our real room at 12 noon that same day as well. I love the location, the facility, the free wifi in every room, and most importantly, the clean rooms. I will definitely stay here again once we go back to Shanghai!
