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 a 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.  In this post read my review of Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre and also you can click here to book your perfect stay in Shanghai at Marriott Hotel City Center

Size of the 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.

  1. I would really consider staying here when I eventually get to Shanghai (was suppose to be there next month but trip cancelled due to some flu virses going about). I really do love the decor and the beds do look comfortable. I have stayed in Marriott hotels across the world before and never had a problem with them before so I hope the service is still to a high service here.

  2. An amazing property and in the heart of the city as most Marriotts are. This is one of the reasons why I try and find a Marriott as well when I travel. The hospitality and the location are key for me and this seems to tick both those boxes. The spa and the pool looks inviting and the perfect place after a long day out. overall a great property and if you have access to the M Club then this an added benefit. Thanks for sharing.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. This hotel looks exquisite! Sounds like such a luxurious and perfect place to stay while you’re in Shanghai. Because it’s so central, it’d be great to location to stay because of the ease of getting around. Love that they have a temperature controlled pool!

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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!

  11. This looks like a great place to stay in Shanghai! The Marriott is such a trusted brand that you know you can expect quality, and it looks like it delivers here. Breakfast looks devine and the view from the room is great!!

  12. This hotel looks like a great place to stay. I love the skyline view from your room! The city looks so nice at night. I haven’t been to Shanghai yet, but I would love to stay here when I visit.

  13. This has to be the most luxurious Marriott I’ve ever seen! The walls are dripping in art. Breakfast here alone is enough reason for me to want to stay here. The spread looks amazing!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    1. Yes.. i have many factors thru which i decide my accomodation. I m working on this post and very soon to be released

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.
