“Great Hotel in Shanghai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This was a wonderful hotel that offered outstanding service, great rooms and a fairly good location.

As a Platnum Marriott traveler, I was provided access to the lounge on the 59th floor. This was amoung the best Marriott lounges that I have been to based on the service, variety and quality of food. I also booked a one day private tour through the front desk, while it wasn't cheap, the guide and driver were very good.

The location was close to the Tommorrow Square subway stop.

The building is 5th highest skyscraper in Shanghai, so if you are lucky enough or have some status, you can enjoy marvelous views of the city.
Check-in was hassle free, the rooms start from 20th floor (the top one is on 58th), until 20th floor there are long term stay apartments.
Rooms were really nice, with natural stones, very clean and spacious enough.
If you are afraid or don't prefer local food, purchase access to business lounge if you don't have access/status - it's really worth it. The breakfast is a bit boring, but dinners are really nice.
The JW Grill is serving nice food, but it's very pricey. Lobby level restaurant has great selection for breakfast.

Overall we were very pleased and I would stay again and would recommend the hotel.

Travel tips:
Within 1000 feet there is an entrance to subway station, which is a great way of moving around the city - there are English descriptions and directions, so it's fairly easy to commute.
Within walking distance, there is main shopping street Nanjing Road, but major choice are local wares, quite pricey. Less then a mile away is The Bund.
For shopping, if you are looking for more western style, you can go to Best Brands Mall on the other side of The Bund, if you are interested in "fake" market there is one at 580 W Nanjing Rd.

Important tip - printout name of your hotel before arriving to the country if you don't speak mandarin. Most of the taxi drivers don't speak English at all. Sometimes it is easier/faster to use subway then taxi, but both will work.

Room Tip: Any room will work, consider asking for corner room, with views on both sides, but it's a bit sm...

There was nothing I didn't like about my stay in this hotel. Love the location. Cleanliness is top notch and the hotel crew is very courteous and friendly. Would love to stay in this hotel again.

I've stayed in the JW in HongKong, Lima (Peru) and Washington DC, and this is the one that deserves the #1 spot for now among the JWs I mentioned.

The concierge lounge has a great view by the way.

The JW is located at the People's Square in the center of Shanghai. As a Reward Gold member I was upgraded automativally to a corner room with nice city view. The rooms are a little small but well furnished and the Bathroom has windows too. Nothing to be missed. The Lounge is located at the 59th Floor and you will find everything you nee incl. Snacks, wine, beer, etc. Excellent quality. The staff is not over friendly but helpful.

Occupying the top floors of a skyscraper in the middle of Tomorrow Square it is a real treat. Good rooms, quality service, safe and good views of the city.
