Westin, by a large margin.

LRM is a bit cheaper and better value, nice enough gym, amazing lounge views, central location a bit better
Westin all around quality /service is nice, better gym if not a bit spread out, I did like the breakfast and dinner / lounge better, but no views for the lounge, LOL

Comes down to what is important, for day to day LRM was best balance, I'd often move to Westin when a good promo rate popped up for weekends.

Room is very nicely laid out with a bedroom/bathroom on one side, a small foyer, then a large living room with its own tv, bar, and half bath. The views are spectacular since it is a corner room and you can see in all directions of the building. The lounge was open and had great views as well. I didn't really use the lounge for anything other than stealing sodas and coffee. The afternoon food was ok but I have a limited range of food I'm willing to eat (picky eater) so I don't think I should judge. Quality wise, what I had was good enough. The only renovation related issue is that that front entrance is still closed so you go through a side entrance but it doesn't matter at all so don't let that bother you.

I enjoy the stay and I would recommend it to others. Concierge was also very friendly and helpful I should add. He booked our train tickets (and picked them up) to Huangshan so we didn't need to do anything at all other than give him cash. English was good. Breakfast was vast in the restaurant but I did not try the lounge brekfast which I believe just had a smaller selection.

Looking to redeem my AMEX 35k point certificate at the JW Marriott (good experience there and great Nespresso machine in lounge) or St Regis (good change of location compared to Peoples Square). Which one would you consider assuming a couple with 2 young kids (4 & 2) and Titanium status? It will be for one night only.

If your kids like swimming, and your visit is after May 1, the Portman and the JW both have great outdoor pools.

We did a one night stay on points at the swanky St Regis just past week. They upgraded us to St Regis Suite. We loved it. I stayed previously at the JW Marriott and it was in my opinion too crowded and touristy. The St Regis is much more quiet and has an upper-class feel to it.

Just to add on... If merely comparing the pool of LRM and Westin, be aware that Westin doesn't have a standard pool... It's in L shape and honestly not quite "swim-able".... Nevertheless LRM's pool is just a 20m pool so it's also a small one... But at least it's a rectangular pool....

Should I choose Courtyard Xujiahui or Renaissance Zhongshan Park? Both are category 3 now. I like the location of Courtyard, but Renaissance seems to have a better hardware.

Depends on why you are going to shanghai. The rooms are bigger with much nicer views at Renaissance

Thank you. I have friends in XuJiaHui and need to go to work near JingAn Temple. For me, I also want to have a hotel/place to relax and enjoy the city, hopefully with a nice gym, sauna and swimming facility as well as nice lounge food.

I am a titanium member. Would it be possible that I will be upgraded to a large suite in either hotels so that the rooms would not be much different?

The Renaissance is pretty convenient to JinAn Temple too. It's on the same subway line to JinAn and airports. The facilities are definitely nicer at the Renaissance. It's also connected to a mega mall so you'll have a lot of food options there.

I stayed at the Courtyard a lot last year, but with the category change, I would rather stay at the JW Changfeng or the Renaissance

Just completed my 1-night stay at the St. Regis. Used an SNA and received an upgrade to the junior suite in the app. At check-in the room wasn't ready so we got upgraded to an 'apartment' on the 66th floor. It included a full kitchen and washing machine! I didn't feel comfortable though which was likely because of the altitude/air quality. Breakfast was OK. Location is a good change from the Shanghai railway station area (Courtyard Puxi) and Peoples Square but I agree with some here that the service was not special (except for the nice upgrade).

Just completed a week stay at LRM in once of the residence suites. The room was the highlight. Was treated like crap. No hello or thanks for being platinum. We are in our mid 30s and there for the F1 race, they seemed like oh crap here comes people who we dont want here. Was never felt welcomed anytime at the lounge. Twice I had to say not only am I platinum, we are also staying in one of the suites that has lounge access anyway.

The elevators are super slow and a pain to take 2 to get to your floor. First they put us in the lower elevator so anytime we wanted to go to the lounge, we had to go back to the lobby to go back on a different elevator to the lounge. We got that swapped out real quick.

The room itself is beyond amazing and the view cannot be beat. The lounge selection was mediocre at best. Yes nice made to order station, but I my friends all thought the Marriott had a better spread, and we were welcome SO MUCH more there.

I will most likely never stay at this location again unless I need a big suite. Next time I will check out the JW or back to the Marriott.
