I've happily stayed elsewhere in Shanghai but selected the HoJo Plaza for this trip due to its very close proximity to the location of my three days of meetings. It was a fine choice. Ignore the name on the marquee -- for North Americans, at least, it evokes an acceptable but middle-to-lower grade of hotel/motel experience. Instead, this place offers...

This is an adequate choice, good location, reasonable price. Okay views of city from 12th floor. Nice, active plaza below with lots of Chinese people out at night shopping and eating. Can walk to Bund, but is a bit of a hike. Hard beds, but manageable. Good breakfast buffet. They don't want to give complimentary email at the business office...

This was a great hotel for the price we paid -- the location was excellent, right off Nanjing Road and in between two subway stops that were on multiple lines, making travel around Shanghai very convenient. The rooms were spacious and clean. However, hotels.com marks the Howard Johnson as having complimentary wi-fi, but please note this appears not to be...

Our stay in China, began here in Shanghai and ended in Beijing with stops in Xi'an and Suzhou. Arriving into Shanghai, we navigated the our way (via a friendly American who was familiar with Shanghai) to the Meglav and then a easy transfer to the amazing Shanghai subway system. Clean, efficient and easy labeled in english, we made our way...

Stayed on the Howard Johnson Plaza for three nights. I came directly from a stay at the Gran Melia Shanghai, and even though the Howard Johnson is a nice hotel well situated in the center of Shanghai, the Gran Melia outrank it by far. I got a room on the 9th floor with city-view and complimentary internet access. Bed was...

I stayed at the Howard Johnson Plaza Shanghai for three nights in September 2010. This is a very comfortable hotel in a terrific location. Fairly big rooms have all the useful amenities, including a safe, a large writing table and free internet connection. The marble bathrooms have excellent plumbing. Front rooms overlook the small plaza at the center of Nanjing...

We booked a suite so had a bedroom with tv and a sitting room with sofa, armchair, desk, coffee table, tv. The hall had a closet and little bar/mini-bar set up. The bathroom was quite large and had a bath tub (bath salts provided) separate from the shower. It was quiet on the 18th floor and the view was great....

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The hotel itself was very lovely and the location was perfect. We were within walking distance of shops, hotels, museums, the People's Park, etc..The Bund was also just a brisk walk from the hotel. The breakfast buffet was expensive, so we passed on it and would walk across the street to the McDonald's...

The hotel is located in the center of Shanghai, a two minute walk from the main shopping street and a five minute walk from the Bund. I suppose there are a few metro stations nearby, can't say for sure, as we took taxis all the time (very cheap and reliable). The location is excellent, close to all major sites. The...

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.
