Shopping lovers and tourists will delight in this 5-star, 27-storey hotel’s ideal location right on the pedestrian section of Nanjing Road, Shanghai’s busiest shopping and entertainment centre. A five-minute walk east takes visitors to the Bund, while a five-minute walk west leads to the People’s Square. Pudong International Airport is just 39km away and Shanghai Railway Station, 6km. Extensive spa and health club facilities such as gym, sauna, Jacuzzi, and indoor swimming pool offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The weary sightseer will enjoy a soothing massage or beauty treatment at the Secret Garden Massage and Spa, before a session in the revitalising Swedish sauna and steam room.
The 360 generous rooms – 127 of them suites – have a marble bathroom, safe, mini-bar, large writing table, flat-screen television, and free high-speed Internet. The combination of patterns and colours in the rooms are striking, with dark redwood furniture, yellow-and-white Mondrian grid fabric on a chair, brown block-pattern carpet, and bronze jacquard linens. Guests in executive rooms get to enjoy The Howard Johnson Club facilities. These include a private lounge on the 23rd floor, with check-in/check-out facilities, complimentary breakfast and evening refreshments, concierge service and free use of a meeting room.
Howard Johnson Plaza Shanghai guests can shop until they drop in the area surrounding the hotel. For some nightlife, why not take advantage of the hotel’s childcare facilities to discover the area’s bars and restaurants just blocks from the hotel? Active guests will enjoy a refreshing dip or some early-morning laps in the 15m indoor pool, open from 6am to 10pm. Other facilities include weight training facilities in the gym with Cybix equipment (including weights, running, rowing and cycling machines). Follow this with a session in the Swedish sauna and steam room for the perfect wake-up call.
By day, head to the Pavilion cafe in the hotel’s beautiful yet vast lobby, for coffee and a delicious pastry or afternoon tea; or the Century Deli for a selection of chocolates and cakes baked by the hotel’s in-house pastry chefs. At night, take a gastronomic trip around the Mediterranean at the Riviera restaurant or head to the hotel’s Vinothek wine bar which offers a choice of 50 premium wines and a selection of French cheeses, tapas and oysters.
