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.
Reasons of choosing this hotel –
Few steps from Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum & International Mall. At a walkable distance from tourist places.
There are total 720 rooms with all modern amenities and comfortable bedding. Always opt for city view room on higher floor. We chose Executive Room with Business Lounge Access having skyline view on 25th Floor.
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 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.
- Pamper yourself at luxurious iSpa which houses 6 treatment rooms. There are many relaxing & refreshing treatments with lots of exciting deals. (Have to purchase extra but discounts for room guests)

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.
