NAHMJ loves the serenity of the area around Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong East which has an European feel. We understand that this area is popular with expats. Within 15 minutes walking distance, there are 2 supermarket, one of which is Carrefour and numerous restaurants offering international selections.
However, the subway station is considerably far, with the nearest at least 30 minutes walk.
Among the Marriott group hotel, this one at Pudong doesn’t have an impressive lobby. There isn’t any large space holding armchairs, though it has a lobby with high ceiling. Immediately upon entering, guest will spot a row of check-in and out counters.
Check-In & Check-Out
Checking in and out were swift. Staff could hold simple English conversation and were friendly and warm.
I had a corner room, 1728 during my stay with Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong East. This room is surrounded with glass panels with some good views.
There is a longer than usual hallway leading from the entrance to the bedroom, probably as it is a corner room. Before approaching the beds, the bathroom is on the right while wardrobe is on the left. As such the wardrobe is relatively larger as compare to many other hotel rooms.
Space is relatively huge as compare to the rooms at Renaissance Shanghai Pudong Hotel. Bed wasn’t as comfortable as usual there is a slight dip in some part of the bed. Furthermore, there isn’t choice of pillow.
Lighting as usual were orange but at the minimum it was bright enough for working with abundant international power points were available in the room too.
Spacious bathroom has a bathtub and separate showering area. I always love such designed as it is more convenient especially for guests who have weak legs.
A hand shower and a head shower was available in the showering area. In addition, I was glad that the shower rail was adjustable.
Amenities were sufficient with a wide range which include the Shampoo, Conditioner, Bath Gel to comb, shower cap, dental kit and also sewing kit and shave kit. Additionally, they provided bath salt for the tub.
From this room, one could admire the gorgeous European style Sacred Heart Church, a catholic church and the cannal.
And also beautiful sunset.
In addition, safe, flat screen TV bath robe, hair-dryer and slippers were available in the room too. Complimentary tea and coffee and bottled water are also available. There is also a mini-bar with soft drink and chocolate.
Both cable and satellite TV with some international channel such as CNN, ESPN and HBO were also available.
I was glad that the housekeeping standard is high. I hardly spot any hair around the bathroom and bed which were the usual find.
Like most hotel, guests could find a gym with comprehensive equipment such as threadmill.
A swimming pool with depth of 1.3 m to 1.4 m. There is a board indicating the water temperature, chlorine and pH level of the water.
Sauna is also available. Lockers area also provided in case bring along some bulky or valuable which need to be stored away temporary.
The hotel offers 3 restaurants. First is the all-day dining at Pudong City Bistro where the Breakfast Buffet is held. The remaining are Man Ho Chinese Restaurant and Casalingo, an Italian Restaurant.
Over at Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong East, card key is required to access the rooms.
For foreigner guest who doesn’t have a local number and need taxi could approach the concierge for help.
Finally, for guest who booked the Executive Room or Suite could access the Club Lounge or alternative you hold Gold status membership. The Club Lounge is accessible only via card key.
The cosy ambience serves some simple finger food and drinks to guest.
Overall, NAHMJ loves the ambience, service, rooms and almost everything about Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong East. However, if you are a looking for public transport in particular subway, this is the most convenient hotel.
