Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by QWFENG the internet wi-fi
I have noticed other guests writing about your weak Wi-Fi signal problem long time ago, and thought it might have been resolved. So i chose your hotel for my business trip. unfortunately, it was still there last week throughout my stay. The wireless signal was sometime very weak, even disappeared, and your computer or tablet can't keep on working. It looks like the hotel management never paid attention to its cuistomer's voice. With current technology, this should not have been an issue at all. I went to Guangzhou and also lived in a Crown Plaza, it was perfect. I don't know why this hotel doesn't care, i will check if this has been fixed next time before reservation...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Woshoudebuhao Good value and good location - just don't expect a perfect 10 :(
This hotel has a great location in SH -- close to metro, French Concession, Gubei, etc. It's also got the classic Charlie's Bar (which unfortunately was closed over CNY). The room was a little hot even in Feb so just kept one window slightly cracked open. The value was also really good compared to other hotels in the city and their location. It's also right next to City Shop and Starbucks. Also, Waga's is across the street it has awesome coffee, western foods, and smoothies. Great place to start the day. The cleaning staff also did a great job cleaning our room. Sadly, Charlie's Bar was closed during our stay but I think it will be open again after Chinese New Year. The shower water pressure was awesome and the fixtures looked recently updated.
Unfortunately, my main complaint is: we noticed a cigarette smoke smell coming into our room almost every night. Eventually I saw the guest in the room next to us smoking in the hallway and in their bathroom since their door was open. So now the hallway smelled and so did our room -- and were staying on a NON-SMOKING floor and NON-SMOKING room. I asked the front desk to ask the room (even gave them the room #) to refrain from smoking but was told since we were in China that they would not listen and there was nothing more they could do. They did offer to move us to a different room two floors up but we were already 4 nights into a 6 night stay and decided it wasn't worth the effort. We'd simply open the window more. This was annoying to say the least. Not to mention that hotel staff made it seem like this was common and didn't really care. This was extremely annoying and warranted mentioning in the review.
Secondly, when checking out we had two large heavy duffel bags. Upon check out, I asked for a bellhop and cart to be sent up to grab the bags. Instead just the bellhop was sent. He was simply going to drag the bags from the room to the elevator, and to the lobby. I don't think so --- I told him to take the lighter bag and I would carry one myself. But he help me find a bigger taxi to the airport and did instruct the driver to which terminal. Though I think he should've tipped ME for carrying the one bag and for actually spotting the bigger taxi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dragon4 Great value in perfect location
I come to Shanghai several times each year. Though I have been a Priority Club member for some time I only discovered this hotel in the past year. I selected it due to proximity to the subway line that runs directly to Hongqiao Hub where I can use both rail and air to reach other destinations.
Staff are courteous and professional, offering efficient service in good English. My Priority Club status has allowed me to check in at a priority counter when the regular counter has been overcrowded and the currency exchange service has been first rate. Some hotels treat this as a problematic, first-time experience.
The exterior coffee shop is a nice addition where a quick latte and a fruit plate can be obtained quickly and charged to the room.
I'm happy enough to be a committed regular at this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Antaix Hotel maybe good for shopping not for business men
If you need internet for your work, forget this hotel. It is a completely disaster specially at nights (which happens to be the time when I work most as I connect with western countries).
If you are a non-smoker, dont pay executive floor because you won't be able to breath in there.
If you need taxi be prepare for 15 - 30 minutes wait and other 15-30 minutes to get out of that small street.
If breakfast is important for you, this is by far the worst western managed 5 star hotel I know in Shanghai. You will be fed up of the various kinds of watermelon fruit. Which by the way not even fresh. And to eat the remains of the previous night buffet.
Executive floor catering better not mention. Better not go.
The good thing about hotel: Wagas, Starbucks and a Family Mart few steps from hotel where you can buy everything hotel does not provide and in a non-smoking environment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reina not too bad
Good location. nice rooms.
But this is the only IHG hotel that I have not seen a express check-in sign for priority club elite members.
So I had to wait in line for much longer than any other IHG hotels that I stayed before.
Overall not bad, but not the best option

If any problem at this hotel, the manaagement and staff ture, the negative arround to someting posetive every time. Only good tings to say about this hotl regarding staff and hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marloes inroom temp low and restaurant service during the evening buffet was poor
It was very cold in the room and there was no way to heat it. Even with the heat on and the fan on high I set the temp on 30 it remained cold.
I had the evening buffet and although it was very quiet the service was very poor. I 'haven't been asked for a second drink and the plates were not taken away after a course.
Hope to have a better experience next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YannLi valued experience in downtown
As convenience location for my trip in crowed and bustle city. Most attractive rates for consideration as well.
Besides,I heard this flagship had branding updated , seems senses of services quite better than before.New tower rooms attract me indeed and would like to back cuz quiet big and good view instead of old impression. But if can more benefits or attention in different card memebers would be more excellent .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VAS1586 Very good for a short stay; very relaxing and quiet atmosphere
The choice of this property was on an emergency basis and had to book through the call center; prompt reservation arrangements. Checked-in around 8pm, room kept ready and everything prepared for a platinum ambassador. Quiet place, beds surprisingly very comfortable, pillows excellent, toiletries good, neat and clean rooms and toilets, housekeeping work very hard, I could see...they are sure the cream of this group...reception perhaps a far second followed very close by the smart helpful concierges. . A nearby cinema house could keep guests occupied, if their interests are onwards it. Apart from this, the major advantage is the proximity to the JIATONG UNIVERSITY LINE 10 Metro station. From hongqiao airport, one could catch the line10 and get down at this station and walk for 5-8min....u are there. No need for any taxis...hich is a great boon. Food room service, good. The only negatives I could see is the rate of the F&B and the room tariffs. Could be a little down for better VALUE FOR MONEY.....Otherwise this property is well recommended and could more endeavor to go up in its ranking!

This is the 20th year of this Crowne.I can hardly remember how many days i have spent in this lovely hotel.The upgraded room for my PLTN card is nice and well prepared.The front desk staffs are as helpful and knowledgeable as they could be.
Time has changed but not the quality of this Crowne.They got experienced old staffs as well as energetic young staffs.This healthy team make this hotel always on the top of my hotel list.The best location of all IHG hotels in Shanghai.
So，as a PLTN member,no reason for me at all to say no!I recommend this hotel to you.
