Regal is one of the few big chain hotels in the French Concession, making it a great option for people who want big-hotel service in a more local neighborhood. The hotel tends to fill up mostly with business travelers, for whom there's a well-appointed business center on the fourth floor. The spacious rooms have been nicely renovated and have modern amenities like flat-screen TVs. Club rooms have a curvilinear desk and ergonomic chair and a funky chaise lounge. The Hengshan Road metro station and the bar and restaurant district are just a block away, but there's plenty of entertainment downstairs at the hotel's 12-lane bowling alley. Service is warm and staff helpful.
