"I stay in the Grand Mercure very often and it is my choice for hotel in Shanghai, mainly because of the location, next to the train station and on top of a metro. The down side is that it is a little farther away from some of the livelier areas that you may want to visit, but the taxis all know the train station so there is little confusion. Check in was smooth as always, but i noticed a girl who was being trained at the same time, which wasn't a bother, but she was left pretty much alone to check me out a few days later and messed up the bill, not her fault she should have been more closely supervised. The room size is very good, though the classic is a little small and some rooms don't have windows, so i don't think they should be selling those at all if the consider themselves a 5 star hotel, but we were given an upgrade, so mustn't grumble. The room comfort is excellent and it has everything you could wish for, housekeeping have obviously worked hard. I haven't tried the spa or gym so cant comment but breakfasts are very nice. The only downside i would have is getting a taxi, depending on who is working it seems service can differ. With 3 doormen standing outside at one stage none of them wanted to help us to get a taxi, again with 5 star rating comes 5 star expectations. though on previous attempts i have seen one doorman go the extra mile to ensure we got a taxi in the cold and wet. So i suppose it depends on who is working. Finally, they seemed to have increased their prices on Agoda, there was a sudden jump in price of about 20 per cent on average a few months ago, but nothing has changed in the hotel. This has left me looking at other hotels a bit more closely when booking now. Even though it looks like a negative review, it is only a couple of staff issues that i feel need bringing up."

"I have been to Shanghai many times with my wife and two teenage children. It was the first time that we stayed in Crown Plaza Hotel and we will definitely come back. It is a very nice hotel of western standards, with very big and clean rooms. The main reason we booked that hotel is because it would accommodate all four of us in one room so we didn't have to book two rooms, as it is usually the case. The restaurant was very good, just a bit expensive. The only disadvantage I would say was the location, as it was quite far from the city centre, and approximately 15 minutes walking to the nearest subway station. However you can easily get a taxi, and it is relatively cheap. We plan to visit Shanghai soon and we will definitely book at this hotel again. I highly recommend it for its high quality service and a value for money, especially for a family."

"There are more western owned 5 star hotels in Shanghai than I count. Hyatt (owned by Starwood) has at least 4 that I know of. There are also several other Starwood hotels in Shanghai. I have stayed in a couple of them. The Eton compares favorably with any one of them. It is just as well kept, just as luxurious, and just as comfortable as anyone could ask of a top 5-star hotel. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept on since I moved to China, and the bathroom was amazing! This was the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel anywhere. The bath tub was an enormous 4 feet square (I think that is about 1.3 meters)and the rain shower was also huge. The hotel is in the business area of Pudong, but it is very close to a couple major tourist attractions for those wanting to sight see. The Oriental Pearl Tower and Super Brand Mall are about a 10 minute walk or a three minute taxi ride from the hotel, and there is also a metro station across the street from the hotel so almost anywhere in the city is just a ride away. Taxis in Shanghai are also plentiful and cheap by international standards and they can take you anywhere you will need to go for probably $6 or $7 at most. This is a great hotel and easy to find for a great price."

"We stayed on 5th. floor for 2 nights. Everything was fine until morning around 6 am there was staff talking very loudly. Almost the same time for both mornings. It would have been a perfect stay if these people tone down their volume. "

"I have stayed in other hotels in Shanghai previously but this hotel I would say is the best so far in terms of location, cleanliness, helpful staff, good food served at the restaurant and also strong WiFi signal in room. This hotel so near to the Bund just 8-10 minutes walk and many shopping outlets also within walking distance with the famous Nanjing Street just a stone throw away. I will definitely stay at this hotel from now onwards. For anyone still searching for a hotel in Shanghai, I recommend this hotel without reservation. "

"Apart from the location of the hotel, which is quite far from any amenities, the rest were great! The staff were superb, they were responsive, intuitive, and just simply perfect. The food was great too, especially the desserts. On top of that, everything in the hotel is new and well-maintained, including the very nice gym and pool. The hotel exudes luxury in all aspects. I give a thumbs up to the hotel. The sales manager, Clara, also helped us organize the meeting and ceremony perfectly. I can’t find anything to fault this hotel on, except for the location, which in my opinion cannot be helped. You choose where you stay. I gave a 5 stars for location because I just didn’t want the rating of the hotel to drop by one bit. Cheers."
