Located in Pudong, this hotel is within a 15-minute walk of Century Park, Shanghai Science & Technology Museum, and Shanghai Pudong Meteorological Science Exhibition Centre. Shanghai Pudong Expo and Daguan Theatre are also within 1 mi (2 km).
Pros: Heated toilet seats!Cons: Staff can be quite curt bordering on rude.
Fantastic Hotel, Luxury Digs, Even Better ServicePros: I can't recommend Dorsett Shanghai enough! Traveling solo to Shanghai for the first time, I was worried that I could get stuck with a less-than-desirable hotel in an oddly-located part of the city. However, the Dorsett is easily accessed from Line 2 of the Metro, and right across the street from Century Park.
The room was amazing. Luxurious quality with a bold design, it made me feel right at home, even on the other side of the world. It also had a beautiful view of the city overlooking the park. I couldn't have been happier.
Finally, the service was outstanding. The team at Dorsett was completely accommodating when I needed to cancel a reservation later in the week, and did it without charging me for the room. They were professional and courteous.Cons: I don't have any real complaints about the hotel. My only slight gripe is that I was hoping to have a quick meal at the restaurant before I got on my flight, but the prices were quite a bit more expensive than what I had expected.
Pros: Clean room, walking distance to exhibition, subway station next to the hotel and opposite a park. Cons: Should provide free shuttle to & fro nearby Malls and to Loyang Station for the Maglev. Poor wifi reception.
