I stayed at the Radisson Century Park Pu Dong for four nights for business. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and large. The buffet breakfast was good. Staff spoke good English. Free internet and satellite TV with a lot of English channels. At $170.00 USD per night with breakfast a decent value in Shanghai. The hotel is adjacent to a shopping and restaurant area with a Carrefour, many small stores, and numerous restaurants. Malone’s American Café has good western food and the Korean Barbeque place was very good. I would rate this hotel a solid 4 stars in a good location and would stay again.

I don't think I have to comment much on the room and service.It fulfills my basic needs. As for the breakfast, it is not to my liking at all especially since I had seen them placing some of the breakfast food as early as the night before. However, there is a no of decent restaurants or cafes nearby. Some days I would skip the buffet breakfast and grab a sandwich or scone from the cafe or starbucks. The gym is well equiped. After a day's work, it is nice to go for a good and cheap massage near the hotel.

For me. the conciege is helpful and knowledgeable in directing you to the places where you want to go. Location is not a plus for tourist. It costs about minimium 30 yuan to travel to xintiandi, nanjing road or anywhere around the bund if the traffic is smooth and the driver is not taking you for a ride. Especially since not every driver knows this hotel. It is useful to have directions written to you in Chinese and show it to the driver. The subway will be a better and faster choice if you feel like walking. And don't be fooled by the Shanghai map, it looks further than what you think.

Overall this hotel is good and affordable. But if you are a tourist and not on a budget, you might consider elsewhere.

Our company has company-rate at this hotel. I stayed here in August 2009 for two periods of 2 day's as part of china business trip. I have stayed here more often and am alway's pleased to return back. the loby staff is very helpfull, the beds are "soft", the internet is free of additional charge and the breakfast-buffet is very good; just the basic minimum needs for a business traveler that are fullfilled by this Hotel. Also outside the hotel to the right side there is very good choise of restaurants, where chinees Queen was my faforit, but also Thai and other eating facilities were present.

Transportation from Pudong-airport can be done either by Maglev + taxi or taxi (both way's about RMB 120 and takes about 30-40 minutes. Transportation from hotel into town (puxi-nanjin road west) can be done by taxi direct (RMB 45 day-time) or by taxi>science Center>Metro line2 (RMB 16 (11 + 5); in the night the taxi is about RMB 65.

Bee aware up to Expo 2010 the whole city is a big road-construction site resulting in multiple trafic-jams, even late evening and night. If you are frequent visiter of the Puxi side for the evening entertainment, you easy have to count for 30min-45min single drive.
Of course this is not to blame to the hotel.

Good Hotel. Modern Facilities. Easy access if you are to go somewhere in Pudong. Got a Carrefour nearby, and for the Indian traveler, there is an Indian Restaurant just around the corner..

Due to recent budget restrictions my company decided to narrow down the choices of contract hotels in Shanghai. The Radisson is one of the hotels which made the cut.
Rooms are clean and the breakfast is good and internet is free.
The hotel tries to be trendy but does not quite get there.
Most of the staff are trying to be friendly but is not yet very experienced and often do not know how to handle out of the ordinary requests.
They definitely have to upgrade their key card system soon. Everytime you get into the lift you see people failing to use their cards to get to their floors. I had to return to the reception 2 times to finally get a key card which could actually open the door to my room.
The Radisson is also a little far out from the business centers in Pudong and Puxi.
However price is ok and the basic needs are covered.

Had to stay here for business and my trust in my China colleagues was not misplaced. The location is a little off, nowhere near downtown, but it was near the office, and as other reviewers mentioned, have enough restaurants, bars and shops to serve the expatriate and local community here. The overall decor is nice, like a psuedo W, with overpriced Chinese contemporary art all over the hotel.

The room is also nice and large enough, and the cream/white walls, decor and furniture still look brand new. The internet is also free , which is great and rare in most other countries.

Breakfast was the typical 4-5 star boutique quality and style. But you are better off with the traditional beef noodles across the street. And venture out for lunch and dinner outside too, much more variety out there.

It was also March but still freezing at 5 degrees when my colleagues and I were here. My colleague didn't know it was so cold, and the concierge lent him his personal leather jacket when my colleague wanted to go out. wow
