On the top 24 floors of Tomorrow Square, a futuristic glass-and-steel tower that could double as a supervillian’s lair, the JW Marriott occupies prime Shanghai real estate. Each of the 342 Art Deco-inspired, masculine rooms in rosewood and hunter green offer sweeping city views, especially from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the deluxe corner units. Rounding out the business-leisure offerings: indoor and outdoor pools, a 24-hour fitness center, the exotic Mandara Spa and five eateries/lounges, including the grand Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant.
In the Area
People’s Square, an old racecourse reclaimed as a vast green park, is the cultural heart of downtown Puxi — and by extension, Shanghai. Catch a symphony or ballet at the swooping Grand Theatre, explore traditional Chinese craftmanship at the Shanghai Museum, or go modern at the Museum of Contemporary Art. China’s most famous shopping street, Nanjing Road, connects the park with the The Bund to the east and the Shanghai Exhibition Center to the west, and the Urban Planning Exhibition Centre ties it all together. Bling-hounds shouldn’t miss nearby Xintiandi, a high-class, car-free dining/shopping/entertainment district with many original Shikumen-style stone buildings.
How to Get There
The hotel is classy, that you can tell from the exterior, the skyscraper it is, the lobby , etc . I have stayed here a few times for business. This time around I was upgraded to a junior suite which is very nice, although a little big for one . All very good, as expected .
Terrible breakfast and facilities are old. Staff for breakfast look never been trained. Location is the only reason to choose this place again. AC in the room is always 22C no matter what mode you choose. i’m golden with a lot of Marriott, this is the worst one. I’m at my next stop in Intercontinental now, feel better.
This hotel is absolutely wonderful. The personnel really care about making your visit a special one. The last time we were there they found out it was our 35th wedding anniversary. When we came back to our room there was a cake, some wine and fresh fruit! Another visit my husband had a cold and we were told that ginger tea would help him feel better. They brought some to our table, and when we went to our room there was a pot of it in there. The location is great too - walking distance to People’s Park, many of the subway lines, museums , etc. Even though we often think about trying another Marriott property in Shanghai, we always end up at Tomorrow Square because of the service.
