I stayed at this hotel (Great Wall Wing) for 3 nights in May. The hotel was chosen for it's close proximity to the railway station (2 minutes walk) and highway (run past the hotel) links due to many meetings being planned out of Shanghai. The rooms are the normal size you would expect from Holiday Inn, with TV, fully fitted...

I went with my mom and dad to Shanghai and Beijing last May 2007. I had the opportunity to stay at both Holiday Inns in Downtown Shanghai and Beijing. The first thing I noticed about H.I. Downtown Shanghai is that they have really stiff beds and mattresses! I didn’t think this could happen to a four-star hotel in Shanghai –...

I chose this hotel because I had to make a 9am meeting downtown, also I was intrigued by the location near the railway station. The rate was a real surprise because every other international brand was priced 2-3X as much. From the airport, you can take the maglev then the subway on line# 2 to People's Square station where you...

We stayed here for a few days with a Smartours travel group. The lobby and other common areas are nice and modern but the actual rooms are not so great. They are clean but a little outdated, hard beds, the blow dryer in the room sucks, a couple of mosquitoes somehow made their way into our room at night even...

Recently stayed in Holiday Inn DownTown Hotel in Shanghai. The minute we showed our voucher to the receptionist, she asked us to pay another 130.00 US dollars to be upgrated to the rooms in the new wing. When we said we did not want to do so, she tried to persuade us again, by showing us pictures of the room...

I really can't understand how IC grooup can waste its brand firming such an old, dirty, noisy and out-of-everywhere hotel. It's a real trap. The only brightside is a servicefull personel, the rest - my godness! There's another one, nice, at Pudong: choose it, avoid Downtown!

First of all, Holiday Inns in China are not like the ones in America. They're WAY better. In another league, really. We stayed on the executive level, which cost something like $15 or so more. But for that extra money, you get some breakfast in the lounge, unlimited drinks at the happy hour plus hot/cold appetizers, which you could make...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on the executive level of the Great Wall Wing. We did secure a great rate on the hotels website but in hindsight we wished we had paid more and stayed elsewhere. For an executive room the room was tiny, we had to move the chair away from the desk so we could...

There are two towers to the hotel: the Plaza Wing and Great Wall Wing. My room was in the Plaza Wing. It was quite large for a Holiday Inn, and looked to have been upgraded recently. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. The room had internet service for US$15 per day which is very high, particularly for China. My...
