Lovely Hotel but a bit Distant from the Action

Jan 11th, 2020

My first inkling that this hotel was a bit away from the center was when the taxi driver couldn't find it and after driving round in circles for some time he dropped me off near but not really near the location. Fortunately, a very nice young couple came to my rescue and ordered a Didi car that was able to find the hotel with the aid of their accurate app. By the time I arrived I was tired and also wet from the depressing drizzle. Walking into the Hongta was a great relief and it is a very nice hotel. The lobby is spacious and very clean and the staff mostly speak enough English to be helpful. I was upgraded to a larger and higher room and while the views are pretty ordinary being mainly roof tops and other buildings it was nice to be above any adjacent properties removing any feeling of being overlooked. The windows were huge compared with many other hotel rooms. The room had a big king bed, desk and armchair. The amenities were pretty standard - safe, kettle (no coffee maker), sparsely filled minibar fridge. The Aeron desk chair was a nice touch. The bathroom was big with separate walk-in shower and full size tub. The wifi was really excellent. After several previous hotels with creaky, slow internet systems it was great to have a fast and stable connection all the time. The Hongta is part of the Marriott group and has a lovely executive lounge on the 40th floor that I was able to use. Tea was served in the afternoon and there was a happy hour in the afternoon/evening that was actually several hours and included enough food to make a full dinner meal. Things that I really appreciated about the hotel were good communication in advance of my arrival and help in sorting out the metro lines. The Century Avenue metro stop where several lines converge is only about 5 minute's walk away. Overall, the Hongta's good points make up for the location and the nearby metro station makes it easy and cheap to get around the city. I would consider staying there again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Convenient location near 4 metro lines

Dec 26th, 2019

I stayed here for business, liked the location very much. It's on the Pudong side of the river, which makes it a bit closer to the airport, rates are more friendly than on the Bund, and the hotel is at 5 minutes walk from Century Avenue metro station, with 4 different lines crossing there, so it's easy to get to any location. Hotel rooms are relatively classic, well maintained, I had an executive room, and although the executive lounge is not so big and fancy, I was eventually positively surprised by the food selection during cocktail hour, even enough for a meal if you want. Breakfast is then at the 38th floor and was fine. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best Hotel in Shanghai for USA Business Travelers

Dec 21st, 2019

Just concluded a 3 day business trip to Shanghai, and have to admit the Hongta Luxury Hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. I am a BonVoy Titanium Elite traveler, so sleep in a hotel at least 75 nights per year while on business travel. I work out daily, and was especially impressed by the Hongta's full service/complete fitness center...even had free weights. The 40th floor executive lounge and library had fantastic food offerings in the morning and evenings and an endless supply of quality wines and cocktails. If you need a place to meet with clients and colleagues, be sure to take advantage of the executive library board room where BonVoy Elite members get 2 free hours of meeting space daily for up to 12. I come Shanghai at least 5 times a year, and the Hongta is my new go to hotel while on business travel. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Poor Overall Stay...

Nov 21st, 2019

Stayed here last we as I could not get into my normal Hotel -Intercontinental Shanghai Pudong. Language skill was very poor, limited English, rooms were spacious, showers were moldy. Breakfast options were very limited and poor service. Hard to get some one to get you a cup of coffee. Breakfast was included in my rate, but I was asked 3-4 times to pay for breakfast. I was only one person. Will never return here again TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent Hotel

Nov 11th, 2019

Traveled on a family vacation of 5. This was the last leg of a long trip and everyone was tired. The hotel was the ideal place to refresh. Very convenient location close to the subway, with plenty of restaurants nearby. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. When we had a piece of luggage break, all went out of their way to see that it is fixed on time for our flight. The breakfast was one of the best on our China trip. The gym is open 24/7 - a great bonus. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
