Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DongBeiHu Nice Staff!!!
This hotel is in Pudong, so, mean, close to center and the river... Staff were very nice with us, more especially at the Lounge. These employees, at the lounge, took care of us very much, they were very helpful and friendly. Honestly, it's the best side of this hotel. It's i come back later, it's just for that! I had an upgrade to a suite, i can not complain, but, its was very noisy around our room the week-end we went... Many renovation... painting and clean... but... On my floor level, they decide to clean all the Air Cond Unit/Roof in all room, early, a sunday morning... So, they woke-up us early and without advise... It's let me a bit negative about this hotel... Also, the saturday morning, they renovate and use very noisy tools in the restaurant, during the breakfast... (Can wait 1 or 2 hours...). The building is a bit old, i can understand some clean-up or repair are required, but, it's wasn't well managed...

I have a free drink voucher upon check-in and it is very generous by being a IHG member. However, when I went to the bar, I wanted to know what can I get from the voucher if I order a glass of red. The waitress refused to let me know and gave me a very unsatisfying answer. I paraphrase, she said we serve whatever is available.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Poor customer services
I was upgraded to 15/F ( 1516 ) during check-in, which is the premium membership floor I believe.
When I was in the room, I called up operator and confirm my services entitlement for Internet, Breakfast and lounge access.
However, when I stop by the lounge on Wednesday, after I collect the fruit and at my table, I was told that I am not entitled to the lounge access and so I left with embrassment and confuse.
While not able to use the lounge for breakfast, I spent the other morning for breakfast at ground floor cafe and again, disappointed by the services at the cafe, it always took more than 10 minutes for coffee and I really do not enjoy the quality of the coffee neither.
I have been staying in lot of 5 Star Hotel and Customer services is only my number 1 criteria for Hotel selection, and with the servies I obtain in last week, I definitely would not consider Intercon Pudong as my choice of Hotel in Shanghai again.
Your disappointed customer and member

InterContinental is a reputable worldwide brand and that was the reason I booked at this hotel however InterContinental Pudong exceeded my expectations. The staff at this hotel were helpful, friendly, kind and always cheerful. With their knowledge and willingness to help I managed to comfortably travel through the city to see all the iconic sites and with their inside knowledge to the city I got some great tips on dining and shopping and I was never once disappointed. I highly recommend staying at this hotel for a great, true Shanghai experience. Xie xie (Thank you) InterContinental Pudong! I will be sure to return.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anonym Not bad, but nothing special
As a Platinum member of IHG I stay with Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza quite regularly, usually a very nice experience. I never stayed at Intercontinental brand before, so I wanted to experience the service & luxury of this major IHG brand as a present for my wife on a weekend.
Was okay, but nothing special, definitely didn't meet my expectations.
What was good?
Breakfast was one of the best we had so far in a hotel
What was bad?
At check-in I was not recognized as Platinum member, I didn't get any upgrade, even though the hotel was not really occupied (actually I got a room with view on the main road instead of view of PuDong city)
Bed was kind of soft, it was okay, but Crowne Plaza bedding is better
Road noise in the room
I asked for late check-out till 15:00, reception didn't allow it, just agreed on 14:00 - why arguing and negotiating with customers for this difference of 1 hour?
Concierge gave us a taxi, where the driver already jelled at him and us when we got close to the taxi - but the concierge forced him to take us instead of calling one of the waiting taxis around the hotel. The taxi driver just took as around the corner and stopped again and asked us to leave the car - so we had to walk back to the hotel and start all over again
There are hotels at much better location in PuDong
All over all, it was okay, but nothing special. Wouldn't go there again for leisure, I will stick to Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza, who really recognize me as loyal customer..

The staff was outstanding, and very attentive. They remembered my name when I came back for another stay. You could pay more for other hotels in Pudong; but why would you, given the level of service here? Great value.

Again Shanghai and again the INTERCONTINENTAL PUDONG.
The Hotel was nice as every other stay. The Buffet for Dinner is fantastic. You have such a big choice of nice food. It is a big value for everybody.
The Buffet for Breakfest is also as good as always. Fresh Orange Juice, Croissants and a very good Cappucino! One of the best in Shanghai, maybe...
The staff was very helpful, no matter what was needed.
I will come again in July and i have already made my choice where to stay this time. Guess where?

Overall, the service is excellent. The staff are very attentive and thorough (from housekeeping to the food outlet). Being an older property, the hotel rooms and the physical environment may need some upgrading. The location is excellent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BizTravelerChina Short of expectations...
Typically when I visit Shanghai, I will stay in a local hotel which is considerably cheaper and also more basic in amenities, but this time, I decided to try a "better" hotel and stay in the Intercontinental Pudong. My experience started off poorly when the check-in staff were mostly "trainees" and did not seem to be fully trained. Not sure why so many trainees were working at a prime hour of 5 pm. First, they could not get my credit card to work and then when I repeatedly asked about the wait time it would take to get a taxi they could not understand and answer properly (in Chinese and English).
The second problem was that there was construction going on constantly all day which was very loud and could not be avoided. Due to the design of the hotel, no matter where you are, you can hear the sound of the construction. Awful. To make it worse, there was a party on the main floor at night that was also very loud. When the construction stopped at 5 or 6 pm, then the party noise started and kept going until 9 or 10 pm. It was a continual stream of loud and interrupting noise.
The only good thing about my stay at the hotel was the quality of the gym. I loved the gym. The staff was friendly, nice, and very helpful. The gym itself was kept at a great temperature, the equipment was new and working (minus the TVs, some technical difficulties), but otherwise, I was very satisfied with the gym.
Overall, the price for the quality was not worth it. I think there are many other hotels in Shanghai that cost as much or slightly less that will have trained check-in staff and no construction or noise disturbances throughout the day. May be worth staying at when the construction is completed.

Pleasant business note with good lounge service and selection and efficient staff
I wish i had been informed that the health facilities were undergoing renovations as this would have impacted my decision to stay in the hotel
royal ambassador upgrade policy doesnt make sense to me from a commercial point of view (going from business suite to normal club room sounds like a downgrade)

I have stayed a lot at Intercontinental Pudong - it is always a great plessure to come back. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The hotels location close to Pudong Financial district and subway makes it perfect. The food is great and very enjoyable.
I can only recoment this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HSY2013 Room 1702 is very noisy with water pipe noice throughout the night
Room 1702 in Shanghai Pudong Intercon is terrible. The water noice from the pipe is so noisy that you can not get to sleep. Most terrible is that the water pipe seems to be very close to the bed, so you can not get away from its noise.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EricXpp Bad services, not match with intercontinental brand
From hotel check in, the poor services was Start.
Specially from management view, there is process, no control and no management.
I don't think that will recommendation this hotel to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nims Great Service except at the entrance of the hotel
Loved this hotel and would rate it a 5 out of 5 except for the lack of service at the main entrance. My friend and I got there from the airport only to have to lug our suitcases out of the taxi trunk on our own, and then lug it all the way to the front desk without absolutely anyone helping us. I'm not sure if this is a "DIY" hotel, but I find that hard to believe. That was the only downside to it. Otherwise it was a great experience.

I am pleased to provide feedback for my second long stay at the Intercontinental Shanghai Pudong. The location is convenient, the accommodation clean and comfortable, and staff is most welcoming and provides excellent service. Greeting with a smile, efficient response to requests, and overall satisfaction. Breakfast buffet is top class with large variety of great tasting food, and the environment is pleasing. Overall highly recommended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Recommended!
during my one day stay I was able to experience the fast and efficient quality of Intercontinental service staff. I was imediately addressed to the priority club check in counter uppon my arrival. And in 5 minutes I was in my room. The location of the hotel is convenient for those nearby pudong area. The breakfast was not included and that was a little overpriced in my opinion.
Anyways, I have enjoyed the experience and recommend the hotel for my friend readers of this review.
