Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tstone95 Comfortable bed and good service
My first stay at this hotel was 18 years ago. Therefore the facility looks a little old but it's OK. Check in process was great as female crew already prepared all documents. The BF food was good except the variety of fruits. Hotel location is good. Very convenient to using subway.

Had a late arrival due to the adventurous air traffic control atPudomg airport......
In the middle of the night still received a warm greting and the key card ipromptly.
The Hotel is always a decent good place to stay. Unbeatable location. Still there are signs....... Lights broken, minibar not refilled, just small things.
Still going back there next week again.

Very friendly And helpful staff. After several stays it is nice to be welcomed by staff still remembering and addressing you by name.
Perfect location as it is easy to reach by metro and surrounding is nice.
There is one small thing which needs improvement and that is the climate control in the rooms. It very hard to get it on the right temperature,

Since smoking area has no longer been provided in club lounge that club floor smoking guest is allowed to carry cocktail meals back to their own private smoking room. This can bring to both hotel and guests win-win benefit without violating government rules and guest's smoking hobby. Further more, non-smoking guest will not be interfered by second-hands smoke.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Service
Being a Rewards Member, was given a complimentary room upgrade. Room and service impeccable.
Left my coat in a bar. Mentioned it to the very helpful Western Guest Supervisor at breakfast the next day, who I had met there as he was greeting customers. My jacket appeared within 10 mins.
Highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by escargot Very poor for a notable brand-name hotel
After a long flight and midday arrival, check-in was a tediously long wait.
The room assigned to me was musky, missing some amenities and critically the wifi signal was working but there was no internet connection. Spent an hour trying to resolve it and discovered there was internet connection further down the corridor outside the room - clearly it was an issue with the room #1129 (end room) - if I remember correctly.
Front desk changed my room to #1629 (end room) - if I remember correctly, and both wifi signal and internet connection worked. However, the ironing board was rusty and broken and the iron spewed out water, soaking the garments intended for ironing.
I went online and read that there was a New Wing - I wish I knew about this sooner and moved there. Disappointed with the non-recognition of Priority Club Members.
Notwithstanding, the service standard was outstanding! But the excellent staff have to work with such a broken hotel and bad environment. The New Wing is beautiful though.
Very poor experience for a Crowne Plaza hotel. I recommending staying at the either a lower end hotel or going to the Intercontinental hotel(s) for Shanghai. This price-point is simply not worth it.

I stayed at Crown Plaza Shanghai for 2 nights and I got a room in the new wing. The room was nice, clean, spacious and quiet so I really enjoyed staying there.
The staff at the reception was very nice and helpful. Only thing I missed was a more western style breakfast. The breakfast buffet was big but most was chinese food. But other than that I was perfectly happy at the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bryanatwork old hotel, bad internet service
there is two building in this hotel, one is new, but only providing suite room. so we stay ed in old building. The smell is just so-so in the room.
My room, the light is broken, and even it fixed, i can feel the room lighting is not so bright, it makes the hotel looks older.
and what makes me most angry is that the wifi is so weak that i have to work at the door so that i can get enough signal. Internet service (Wifi) is not so stable, there are 2 ssid, the guest-room one can connected, but it shows me to the router setting page. that is very strange.another wi-fi is very weak, i have to sit at the door for working, so that i can have the strong wi-fi signal. that is very unbelievable.
and when i call the service center to ask for the solution, they said they have no way to fix this problem because the internet guy are out of work. i have to call front desk for another solution.
Light, internet, service, not satisfy me,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jzl89 An excellent stay during the Holidays
I had some family over for Christmas and needed a hotel to accommodate the overflow. This Crown Plaza was within a block of where I live so I made a reservation on Christmas night. I was upgraded to a very spacious and clean room on the 20th floor and it was a very pleasant stay from check in to check out. I was definitely recommend it for both business and leisure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RyanOXY Good location but poor room standard
Hotel is located in a very good location.
but unfortunately this is a very "historical" hotel.
Facilities are poor and not very up to date.
especially the air-conditioning creating very big noise which is quite disturbing even in the daytime.
The room is clean and the beds are ok.
Receptions didn't inform me the benefit as a Platinum members.
Only told me I can enjoy the afternoon tea and happy hour when I asked.I understand it's probably because of the costing control but it will defiantly be a major factor for us to choosing hotels to stay.
Overall,Crown Plaza shanghai is more like a Holiday Inn to me rather than a Crown Plaza hotel.

They offer free in room wifi! After talking to them about the weak wifi signal, they fixed it in 2 hours. They also have wide choices for breakfast, from Japanese to western. They are also flexible if you need to check out after 12PM. The concierges are friendly. There are many Chinese restaurants close by.

Hotel is very nice, have decant rooms and service is friendly. Also breakfast is really good. You will have to take a taxi to get to any attractions, but generally the location is good and reasonably close to Hongqiao airport. Good value for the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by petersiu Worst Crowne Plaza Ever Experience
I stayed two nights there and it already became my most memorable hotel ever given I wasn't even in the room from 7am to almost 12pm on the 2nd day. It was miserable at the arrival at the front door of the hotel. No one care me and my luggage. I did not too mind because thing like this won't affect my schedule. I already asked the front desk if it will be easy to get to the airport in the next morning and they said it will be okay at early 7am. I started to leave my room a bit after 7am the next morning and I was then asked to line up at the front door of the hotel. However the bellboy stood around and no one was signalling for a taxis outside the properties. I then tried to walk outside the building and get taxis and found out the traffic was quite a mess and difficult to get taxis. After several tries within 15 minutes time I wasn't able to get taxis and I went back to the concierge and asked them to book a taxis for me to airport and they said I just need to lineup at the front door. I couldn't see anyone trying to get a taxis outside the building for me and actually none of those bellboy or whoever care there. I found myself again walking outside the building and going crazy for taxis again and I was then able to get one after another 15 minutes or so. I was serious when asking them at the check in the night before and I wasn't able to get taxis initially. More importantly I went there for flight and I couldn't be late. What kind of attitudes are they having with their customers! The reasons I was staying in this hotel were because 1) location, closest IHG outlet from Hongqiao Airport, and 2) I also tried to get a meeting room there. However they did not care after informing them I would be staying there for two nights. Back to my stay in the hotel, I came back to the hotel at around 12am after taking flight back to Shanghai the same day and I was trying to get my dinner from room service. Although I did not really look at the room service menu again, I just called and asked if they had any Hainanese Chicken at that time. Their answer was yes and they also asked me did I need a drink. I just told them I only need the food. However when having my dinner and I found out the portion was terribly small and I recalled the room service menu. THEY NEVER SAID THE PORTION WOULD BE SMALLER FOR THE LATE NIGHT ORDER AND THEY SHALL REMIND ME THAT THE DRINK (POP) WOULD BE FREE AFTER MY INITIAL DECLINE OF ORDERING DRINK!!! I was so hungry as well as so angry when taking the food and after finishing the meal!!! At the checkout next morning I wasn't bother to line up and ask the front desk for any taxis and decided to take subway even with big luggage. Halfway down to the station I saw a couple taxis popping by and I tried to catch them but fell on the floor on the road and hurt my leg!! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE I HAD WITH THIS HOTEL!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PC101 Very disappointed for what I expected from Crown Plaza
I am a platinum member in both Priority Club and another major US based hotel chain (which I can't mention due to the writing guideline). That allows me to make an apple-to-apple comparison of the benefit Platinum members receive in this Crown Plaza and other hotel, which is also in the same area of this Crown Plaza. Both of these hotels are only 5 min apart by taxi. Yet the treatment of Platinum members are very different. The other hotel i am comparing to is a lower class hotel than Crown Plaza in general. Yet, the treatment I receive at other hotel is way better than what I received from this Crown Plaza.
1) Free breakfast at VIP lounge and at main dining hall at the other hotel. At this Crown plaza, only free at lounge. Regular charge at the first floor dining hall, even for Platinum member.
2) Free happy hour at both hotels. However, quality and variety of food at the other hotel's lounge is at least 3-4X better than at this Crown Plaza. The other hotel's lounge has salmon, variety of meats and fruits, salad and desserts. You can eat as dinner there, no problem. This Crown Plaza (CP) only has very limited selection and food quality is not good. And you are still hungry afterward.
3) At the other hotel, I was provided a cup of drink and hot towel at the counter during check-in. Nothing at this CP.
4) For Platinum member at the other hotel, I was given a choice of 8-10 items to choose from as free items to be delivered to my room after I check in, including various drinks, hot sandwiches, fruits, ice cream ...etc, all delivered to my room. At this CP, nothing.
I am very disappointed in this Crown Plaza. Besides the substantially lower benefits I received from this CP for being a platinum member, the bathtub in my bathroom has extremely slow drain. 3 min into the shower, the water has filled up to 2-3 inches high in the tub. How can Crown Plaza possibly allow this? When I am done with the shower, the bathtub is half way filled with water. I wanted to take a picture and post it here for all to see. However, I decided not to as I guess nobody wants to see the dirty water in the tub.
Room is too dark at night and does not have enough light. Hard to read book or magazine at night unless you sit in front of the desk lamp.
Overall, I will not stay at this CP again. I will stay at the other hotel where I have stayed most of the times. The only reason I stayed at this CP this time is because the other hotel was booked fully during one of the nights i needed. And since I do not want to check in and check out at a different hotel just for that night, I decided to give this CP a try for 6 nights. And I am very disappointed and regretted that I made the wrong decision. I should have stayed at the other hotel for the 5 night and only 1 night at this CP. And supposedly my room on the 20 some floor is a upgraded and better executive room. But it has a very slow drain?
And worst of all, this Crown Plaza's rate is higher than the other hotel, which is only 5 min away, also a major hotel chain and a newer hotel too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dougles a terrible experience in this hotel, Nightmare
I checked in and parked afternoon, and when I moved my car to a new space in the evening, my car scratched the wall less than 1 centimetre. then the belly boy shouted to me and accuse the another broken place of the wall (totally different high level and old trace ), it is none of my business.
I told him that I am the guest of your hotel, please be polite to me, He still kept shouting and even face to face with me, insisted that my fault resulted the broken wall.
Even FOM or other staff of hotel came, the argue continued.
very very terrible experience I ever met, really impacted me several days for bad feeling.
