Friendly and efficient. Since I am a PriorityClub platinum card member, my room was upgraded. It would be better if this was done automatically without me asking for it.
Spacious, clean and comfortable. That is everything you can expect from Crowne Plaza. The room comes with 2 big windows (ceiling to floor) which offers a 180 degree view of Putong area. Although there is no breathing taking view, it still gives you an idea how Putong looks like.
The room comes with individual temperature control. You can easily adjust the room temperature to your own preference.
Bathroom is clean and provides all standard bathroom amenities. Most of the toiletries are jasmine flavour. If you like Jasmine, it could be a plus for you. As usual, there is coffee and tea making facility in the room. Oh .... there is a Jasmine tea bag there too.
It also offers a good range of international channels. I think it is time for the hotel to upgrade the TV to LCD/Plasma TV.
The hotel also provides daily "fruit basket": an apple, a orange and a banana! Wish the hotel can be a bit generous in the future. Some one suggests 5 portion of fruits and vegie a day to keep us healthy!
The hotel is a good 5 minutes walk from the nearest subway station, HangJin Road (航津路). A RBM5 ticket will take you to Shanghai downtown where all the happenings are, it takes about 50mins. The hotel also provides shuttle services to Shanghai downtown and some others nearby area. The service starts at 9am and the last shuttle back to the hotel is around 10pm. For those who likes to see the city without going underground or taking a taxi, the shuttle is a very good option. Shanghai is a busy metropolitan, personally I don't like to stay in downtown area.
The hotel is serving a lot of international airlines crews. Every morning, there a lot of crew members who will take the shuttle to nearby Yatai market (or they call it underground market, it is literally underground, nothing malicious about the market!) where you can find a lot of good deals. I am not encouraging anyone one to buy counterfeit, there are a lot more things to buy from Yatai market. I bought a beautiful teaset for RBM70, check out the photo. Check with those crew members and they may point you to some stores which offer better quality and price. Please bargain. The final price can be 20% to 30% of the initial price!!
A well equipped gym. Plus point, the hotel provides yoga classes at RMB100 per class. For those who does not want to miss your yoga routine, just sign up for the class.
It was a very pleasant stay. I would strongly recommend this hotel to those who prefers luxurious services and room. You will get the high service standard provided by Crowne Plaza without a big hole in your pocket. This hotel is great to me although it is a bit away from the city centre. The shuttle and subway solves all the transportation problems.
