Popular with business travelers for its location near Hongqiao Airport, this hotel is somewhat dated but a good option for those who want to be near the airport without being too far from downtown. The property has four club floors, an indoor swimming pool, and five dining venues—convenient, since there are few restaurants in the immediate area. Spacious standard rooms include large desks with ergonomic chairs, and the grand rooms have colorful carpets and overstuffed
chairs in the separate bed and sitting rooms. A staircase sweeps you from the formal lobby up to the second floor and the exceptional deli. On the 27th floor, Giovanni's serves Italian food as impressive as its views.
