I stayed in the New Century Grand Hotel for four nights while on business at the nearby medical facilities of the Shanghai JiaoTong University. The hotel is about an hour's taxi drive from the airport, and as others have mentioned, no where near Shanghai's downtown (a ~30 minute taxi drive). Its lobby is spacious and attractive. The check-in went fine, with minor limitations in understanding my English. My room on the 8th floor overlooked a large park which one can readily access to walk (or jog/run) around the water on paved paths. The room was quiet, large, clean and very on par with 3/4-star US hotel rooms. The bathroom was especially upscale. Internet access (via a cable connection) was efficient. I found the breakfast buffet to be fine - a more Western style buffet was separate from a Chinese buffet, so you could sample from both as desired. A work dinner in their Chinese restaurant was excellent. A quite upscale mall is adjacent (behind) the hotel, and as you go further along its two-levels, less upscale shops & restaurants can be found. Overall a fine place to stay if you have reason to be in the Songjiang district, or do not mind the distance to downtown attractions.
