Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre – Perfect Staying Option

NiHao (Hello in Chinese)

Why Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre is a Perfect Staying Option………..

Last week, I traveled to China for my brother’s wedding and during transit, I stayed in Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Center for couple of nights. As there are many 5 star luxurious stay options in Shanghai it was confusing for me to finalize hotel, but after lots of research, I finalized this hotel.  Very soon I will be writing post on Shanghai city attractions and Chinese style of wedding.

Shanghai Marriott Hotel Center – Perfect Staying Option – 

This hotel is beautiful combination of luxury, leisure and business.  Perfectly located in heart of downtown Shanghai and at a walk-able distance from NanJing Road & Bund(main tourist/shopping streets of Shanghai).  This hotel is 37 floored building with stunning views of Shanghai skyline from upper level rooms and bar.

Size of room is big enough with lots of sitting area.  Interiors are modern, chic and modernly designed.  Mini fridge, Iron with Ironing board and tea making facility are included in the room.  Also all rooms keep 1 umbrella, as Shanghai weather is unpredictable.  I needed more than one umbrella so asked them on request.  

Bathrooms 

Bathrooms are modern with all amenities like tub, closet, bath gowns, slippers, hair dryier, shaving kits, dental kits, manicure kits and herbal soaps.  Also main feature of bathrooms is they are transparent and can be overlooked from rooms but curtains are provided to cover the glasses.

Food is the plus point of this hotel.  This hotel has excellent and sumptuous breakfast buffet(included in my room stay).  There are many varieties of cuisine from different parts of the world.  Even vegetarians also enjoy lots of variety.  This hotel have 3 restaurants Java +(Modern bar and High tea), Man Ho(Chinese restaurant) and Shanghai City Bistro & Lounge.

Currency of China – YUAN

This hotel has Currency converter machine which accepts cash and credit card.  This cash converter offers good conversion rate with less rate of commission.  

Tip – Facebook, Whatsapp and Google don’t work in China. So  do  all social networking before going to China. Instead of Google maps local China Map apps work. Download it before going or else instructions would be in Chinese if you download from China.  

Note – All expenses of staying in this hotel are taken by me.  This visit is my personal family visit.  

Very soon writing post on Shanghai city attractions and Chinese style of wedding in my next posts. Stay tuned and keep reading for more exciting experiences in the world.

  1. I have to say, I’m never disappointed when I stay at Marriott. This one looks incredible, especially as it’s in Shanghai too. The food choices are delicious, it’s made me really hungry while reading it. To top it off, the spa looks perfect too. A choice stay for Shanghai.

  2. Marriott properties never disappoint, and I like the consistent service and quality. This looks like a great location for your brothers wedding and sightseeing. Plus, some time at the spa and gym between activities.

  3. Wonderful review of the Hotel capturing all aspects of what they have to offer. I have stayed in Marriott around the world and have always found them to be the epitome of luxury and service. The rooms looks really comfortable, but more than that the food comes across as very tempting and delicious. Obviously the location matters a lot and as you have mentioned it is quite close to all the tourist spots so that’s another plus.

  4. This looks like such a luxurious place to stay! I’ve only been to Shanghai for a few days, so I’m hoping to return. This looks like a place my family could relax after touring around all day. I hope you had fun at the wedding!

  5. Looks like a nice place in a convenient location. Always good to find places that are walking distance from the things you want to see and do.

  6. I recently stayed in a Shanghai in Broneo and I loved everything about it. They are such great hotels and I definitely stay in them when I can. The Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Center looks like a great place to stay and I love the fact it is in a central location. I love the space in the rooms too.

  7. I have stayed in some of the Marriott properties and have loved my stay. This one looks grand. Since it is walking distance from most of the points of interests, I am sure it made travel easier for you. I prefer booking hotels in central locations.

  8. This property does look first class and the food you photographed looks fabulous as well. I noticed you gave the food a 10 score and that is always something that denotes a hotel’s reputation. They have kept this hotel looking very well maintained and the central location and views you got were brilliant. Would definitely look at staying here on a trip to Shanghai.

  12. The night view of the city from your room is amazing! I’d love to stay here when I visit Shanghai again. I like that their gym has more than 2 machines- that’s usually not the case at some hotels!

  13. Mariott hotel everywhere is just perfect, isn’t it!! China was the first ever international trip that I went on and it was solo too. So its very close to my heart. But I totally forgot which hotel I stayed in. This is so close to Madame Tussauds? That’s perfect for any tourist. The pool and ispa looks just sooo tempting…

  14. Wow! The hotel looks elegant. It’s good that you found a perfect place to stay over. I honestly think this would be perfect not only for accommodation but also for staycation.

  16. I love how the ‘Shanghai Marriot Hotel’ offers luxury and a place for entrepreneurs to stay . The interiors are exquisite and I have always thought that Shanghai has such a beautiful skyline too.

  17. My husband and I have stayed at many Marriotts, but this one is probably the most beautiful I’ve seen. Everything from the lobby, to the rooms to the city skyline is absolutely beautiful. I hope you felt pampered. I can’t wait for your next post about weddings in China! x

    1. I am excited to launch this post as wedding in China is very special because it was union of 2 countries means Indian boy married Chinese girl so a cultural union.

  18. That looks so relaxing! I’ve never thought to visit shanghai before. I would like to travel the silk road in China thought!

  19. This just reminds me that I need to get back to China and visit Shanghai. I did love it in Duan and Chungsha and Nanning as well as in Hong Kong. But China is such a beautiful and amazing place. And I love all of the classic architecture there. So very beautiful.
