Fantastic Hotel, Luxury Digs, Even Better Service
I can't recommend Dorsett Shanghai enough! Traveling solo to Shanghai for the first time, I was worried that I could get stuck with a less-than-desirable hotel in an oddly-located part of the city. However, the Dorsett is easily accessed from Line 2 of the Metro, and right across the street from Century Park. The room was amazing. Luxurious quality with a bold design, it made me feel right at home, even on the other side of the world. It also had a beautiful view of the city overlooking the park. I couldn't have been happier. Finally, the service was outstanding. The team at Dorsett was completely accommodating when I needed to cancel a reservation later in the week, and did it without charging me for the room. They were professional and courteous.
I don't have any real complaints about the hotel. My only slight gripe is that I was hoping to have a quick meal at the restaurant before I got on my flight, but the prices were quite a bit more expensive than what I had expected.
Clean room, walking distance to exhibition, subway station next to the hotel and opposite a park.
Should provide free shuttle to & fro nearby Malls and to Loyang Station for the Maglev. Poor wifi reception.
Heated toilet seats!
Staff can be quite curt bordering on rude.
The position of the hotel
I had to discuss what the rate included. It was different from what stated in the website. Then we solved the problem. The bathroom walls in the suite is completely made with glass!! No privacy at all!!
Good hotel for the Shanghai Expo Centre. Not so good for seeing Shanghai.
the hotel is good in general if you want to visit the shanghai pudong exhibition center, very near only 5 min. excellent concierge name peter. the bad about this hotel is the lobby , very small . very nice surounding the central park is only crossing the road. for eating you can go by taxi only 12 rmb to the tumb plaza.
The room was very nice.
The staff were rubbish. I turned up and i was told that they didn't have the room that i had booked available and they wanted to put me in a twin room as opposed to a double. I said i wanted a double bed. And then they tried to charge me more. I objected to that and i was left waiting while they tried to find me a room. In the end i dropped my bags with the concierge and went out. When i came back later i finally had a room. On checkout i produced my piece of paper which clearly had $121 written on it. They told me that their international department has decided that the exchange rate was 6.8rmb/$ as opposed to $6.64 so they were charging me at that rate!! What the hell, why do they have the price on the internet?
service is good and convenient in transportation, quiet area, good for relaxing
Breakfast offered is not excellent
The staff helped us find another room in another hotel.
I had booked the double room for myself and my brother expecting there to be two suitable working spaces in the room. We found only one. When asking the staff to provide an additional desk and chair they were unable to do so. Furthermore active hotels promised there to be a fitness room in the hotel. This was not the case. The fitness room was under construction and would not open until next month. This was quite dissatisfying.
One subway stop and one highspeed train ride from the airport. Subway is easy to use.
