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
Thank you, SP03. That is very helpful. I am leaning towards Renaissance now.

I need to be at the New International Expo Center for a few days in June. Is the Sheraton Grand Shanghai Pudong the best location for this. Do any of these properties provide a free breakfast for Marriott Gold's?

I'm at the expo centre W/C 20th June and I've just booked Le Meridien. Metro goes to the Expo centre and I'd rather stay the other side of the river.

That's a pretty unpleasant subway journey, whether you take Line 2 (very crowded) to Line 7 or Line 8 to Line 7 (less crowded, but even longer). As much as I dislike Pudong, the Kerry and Jumeirah are both nice hotels and very close to SNIEC. If you actually need to be over there during business hours, I would suck it up and stay at one of them, then maybe switch to a better area for you last night or two.

I don't find it that hard to go from LM to exhibition - several subway stops and one change and you are right there.

Within walking distance is Kerry Center Hotel and Jumeirah. If staying with Marriott, try Marriott Jinqiao or Sheraton Grand. The nearby Renaissance is also doable.

a) 7 stops on Line 2 + 1 stop on Line 7
b) 6 stops on Line + 7 stops on Line 7

I suppose "a" is probably the better of the two options because it is faster, and the crowd thins out a bit after Lujiazui, but it's still a commute I'd try to avoid.

I have several friends who live at the Kerry. I don't visit them often because getting there is such a PITA, but I have to admit that the area is kind of nice.

I'm no stranger to the Chinese subway but I haven't been to Shanghai before.

I can cancel my reservation and rebook at something like the Sheraton Grand or the Hongta on the other side of the river. Is it really that much of an issue to take the subway?

If you only need to go over there for one or two days, the subway is tolerable. More than that, I'd be looking at the Kerry.

I found the LM and or Sheraton Grand two of the most convenient to the subway.

When it comes to subway it will be all about number of stops and transfers, no question if you go during rush time in the summer don't discount the crowds and walking you need to do in the transfer stations. I always found that never a PITA as many seem to take this little cultural experience and exercise, but again seems to be a western view of things, LOL

Another Portman vs JW question

Am Titanium and am in Shanghai for three nights from a Thursday to Sunday.

Have booked both Portman and JW at this stage. I know the deal with no lounge access at RC, but like many others I really like the location. Our corporate rate does include breakfast at RC but last time I was there i did not find the breakfast amazing.

Ive stayed at the Ritz and quite liked it, never stayed at the JW (normally stay at Westin or Marriott City Centre).

So my questions about JW:
- What is the lounge like, do they have "real" champagne?
- I have loads of SNAs so thinking about using some of those, are the suites nice?
- is there a nice bar in the hotel
- Comparing the rooms with Portman, how would you compare them?

thanks!

i prefer JW lounge to RC one. I like the view. I don't drink so not sure on Champagne. Suites are nice. I haven't stayed RC rooms for a while but never much cared for them.

JW has good restaurants (I eat there all the time) but don't think has a happening bar. I could be wrong. Unless you really like RC location which I dont because of traffic, the JW is better

In the end I took Line 2 to Century Park and made the 7 minute stroll from there to the Expo Centre from there rather than changing. Of course if it was hammering down this may need rethinking.

Subway was absolutely fine at 8:30. Even got a seat.

LM renovation status

anyone recently stayed at LM? Saw the room renovation message on their website, is the noise bothering? Any construction odor? is the renovated gym area nice?

Thanks

entrance

IME, the renos @ Le Meridien are affecting the entrance only i.e. no big deal. & the health facilities.
The lounge is unbelievable. Worth the stay and/or upgrading.
During my 2019 stay, I checked out the alt health facilities @ the Marriott (short walk away). Fantastic:
- steam room;
- lockers whic work;
- great equipment;
- Robes flip flops.

Hi,

I have an event at the Jing An Shangri-La, but want to stay with Bonvoy. I can clear budget on all of the hotels in the area. I think I have to go back and forth at least twice, but not more than that. Moving over to Pudong Ritz after that. Advice on Portman, JW, STR...please include how hard it will be traffic wise to get back and forth, though hotel quality will be the most important.

Thank you!
