The hotel is a bit out of the way in the city of Shanghai, but that fact is made up with the beautiful hotel rooms and excellent staff. I don't stay at the marriott often, so I was surprised when I was given the corner room with both park view and Suzhou creek view. the rooms has electric control for the curtains, beautiful ambient light and great TV channel selection. the bed is also quite comfortable. my co-worker got a room that's almost as big as a suite, but it's not on the corner. apparently the corner rooms tend to be smaller.
the amenity at the hotel is also pretty good. the gym is very high tech and the pool is very soothing. they give you water and place towel at each work out machine. the staff is very nice and addressed me madam almost all the time, which is not something I was used to. you also get two water bottles a day, if you want more, you can ask for more. after a few days, the staff figured out who are my co-workers and started seating us together during breakfast.
a few things I wish they can improve. I called the internet help line to get a password for internet and the lady wasn't very helpful, I had to call the front desk. the blinds in the bathroom need to be lowered electrically, so if you really need to go when you come back to your room, you have to wait. taxi can be a bit difficult to find, especially during rush hours and near the closest subway station. expect a 15 minutes wait, it's fine after rush hour. I had to walk back one of the nights when I couldn't get a cab.
