Beautiful lobby greets you from the hustling streets of Shanghai. Check in was efficient and clerk spoke English well. Room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful of both Chinese and American dishes. I would return.

The hotel is located along the famious pedestrian shopping street, which I did not know was also the red light district. Each time I left the hotel I was harassed by people selling knock offs or massages. "Beautiful women? Massage?" And they don't take no for an answer. They follow you, ask questions, and I had to yell "no. Go...

The hotel is perfectly situated near east banking road. The room was spacious and clean. The lights however being worked off a electronic pad were awful. The staff were very know-legible and keen to advise destinations and authentic restaurants. A very pleasant experience and I will stay at this hotel again.

The hotel is in a great location. Our room was quite small and did not have much of a view. Just after midnight, our room was filled with cigarette smoke smell - this was really terrible and for this reason alone I would not stay here again. As described in other reviews, the staff here does not speak much English,...

Nice hotel, very well located near Nanjing road and only 5min by walk to People square subway station. Swimming pool and fitness room available. The breakfast offers a wide selection that should satisfy anyone.

We stayed at the Howard Johnson hotel over new years eve and beginning of January 2017. The rooms are big and clean and we had a stunning view over the city. Bathroom and pool/spa was also clean and nice. Although the pool seems to be a little old. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we can recommend the...

Stayed in this 4-star hotels during Christmas Eve and New Year. The hotel is centrally located nearby exit no.4 of metro line 2 and a walk to the Bund only 10-12 minutes. The lower hotel fares is reflected in poor quality of the breakfast, very dim room even you switch on all the light (difficult to read books) and the...

This place was an amazing value in the heart of the city. Beautiful lobby and huge windows in the rooms. We would highly recommend it to anyone with a layover in China. Easy to get to the bund and good people watching. We loved our stay.

Compared to other major hotel in the city, the price for this 4-star hotel is very reasonable. The location is super close to the popular shopping district. Room is clean and neat. Staff at reception is quite friendly when answering my questions about breakfast. Overall it's highly recommended

Distinguished hotel, very good and efficient personnel. Rooms at 26th floor are offering a wonderful panorama over glittering night Shanghai. Rooms are very generous, well equipped. The only inconvenience was very slow Wi-Fi and even by cable was the same.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
