What city center? I usually assume that a cluster of really tall glass and steel skyscrapers denotes a "center", but in Shanghai's case, it's everywhere!.

The Westin is certainly in a decent and lively part of town but I found that many other hotels are just as convenient. For myself, the Portman Ritz-Carlton seemed like the ultimate in convenience... unless all of your business was on the Pu Dong side!

As for the Hongqiao Marriott, it's a bit further out from the Huangpu, but as everyone has said, it's still a relatively short taxi ride away.

Enjoy enjoy!
