The rooms are good and spacious. There are not many activities in the hotel besides the pool. The beauty salon is not yet open despite the fact it is mentioned in the crown plaza website. The food is average and staff is not well trained. It was raining and the roof was leaking in several parts of the hotel. Every...

We enjoyed our 1 night stay over the weekend very much despite the rain. We brought the bikes over from Shanghai & the Hotel was very helpful, patient & accommodating with the arrangements. Dishui hundred is a great place for cycling as there aren't many vehicles. The 40sqm room was very clean & comfortable, just the Central air conditioning again...

Went for a work event to this hotel. It is a couple of hours journey outside of Shanghai at what looks to be a picturesque (albeit dull) area near a lake. Modern design and rooms comfortable and spacious. But staff can't speak any English at all, seemed to be pretty incompetent and food and wine was disgusting and overpriced. Avoid....

I was here to shoot the first sunrise of the year and this area has not provided a lot of options and a familiar brand name Crowned Plaza kicked in. Hence, I booked this location. Check in was fast, rooms are clean, parking lots are good as well. The location is a five minute drive away from the coast line...

Great hotel for a weekend away from the city, without actually leaving the city! Puts the Le Meridien Sheshan in peril. Only thing is that while it is a western hotel it is very Chinese and there is not a single channel apart from CCTV something in English on the TV, but rooms are big, most have a nice balcony...
