I flew in from Toronto, and I had to stay overnight in Shanghai at a hotel near Hongqiao airport and train station. The Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Hotel was not only clean, very comfortable and reasonably priced, but it is ideally located for travel within China. I could take the high speed strain to Hangzhou from the train station and fly into the airport late night from Ganzhou.
This hotel was superb, very clean and comfortable. Friendly helpfull staff and very good value.
Because it is new it is a bit hard to find with a taxi, but keep the phone number with you and the driver can get directions.
only a few minutes from Airport, large rooms , very good price, only complaint was from cab driver that it was too close, bad luck I say for him. One if the best bathrooms of any hotel I have stayed in. Perfect for layovers

Only there one night. Taxi had great difficulty finding property even after I contacted reception on mobile and asked them to advise driver how to get there from Shanghai HongQiao railway. Entrance not clearly signed.
Tired and hungry by the time we arrived in the evening so ordered room service hot meals that arrived to the room cold! We were quite disappointed.
The hotel is beautiful and clean, and everything works perfectly. Even the restaurants are good (to my surprise - I didn't expect that in a Holiday Inn). The staff are friendly and professional, although if you have a complicated problem you may have a hard time communicating it. My main complaint about the hotel is that planes fly very low over it and it can be loud - obviously, that's the kind of trade-off you face in choosing whether to be close to the airport or farther away.

Very Highly Recommended. Did not expect it to be so good. The security of the hotel was very good. One card to open the front reception gate at late, use the lifts and open the room. The room was pretty new and had all the necessary equipments. Free internet access was available offering good speeds. Staff of the hotel was helpful and a few of them could speak English as well. A small market is nearby the hotel and you can get necessary stuff there. Had a wonderful experience at Shanghai and a pleasant stay at the hotel. It was really worth every penny spend on it. I felt that the hotel is highly under-rated and lower priced. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
