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
Stayed here last week, got in late so I ordered room service, went a bit overboard but wanted to try a few things. All the food was good and the room was very nice, no issues at all. Great views and the staff was great, rates this time a year were very competitive. Very nice stay.
J.W. Marriott tomorrow square
It a good modern and efficient hotel and in a nice location, adjacent to Peoples Park.
I’m a big fan of Marriott hotels as most of my business life is with this group. This good hotel and boasts the world’s highest library. The hotel is 15 years old, spotlessly clean and well run. Take advantage of the lounge; which is very good.
The staff are friendly and helpful, if you want a view you would need to be up high 46 plus.
Exec lounge is small and cramped. Very few comfortable seats. Food is appalling with limited selection (lots of fried food). I counted three days in a row the same food appeared. Some of it looked like they simply refrigerated overnight. Trying to get a drink takes work. The staff protect the alcohol and coffee machine. Compared to the Beijing JW exec suite Shanghai is second rate. The Marriott restaurant buffet is not much better with limited selection. Again compared with the Beijing JW it is very poor. The gym is decent. Subway is close and cheap and easy to use.
Perfect hotel with excellent customer service, check-in and check-out. Great location, close to museums such as the one on urban planning, and art museums, near people square, and convenient to Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street that leads to The Bund.
The rooms are fully renovated. Very comfortable with all the required amenities.
The gym is superb, furnished with all the required workout equipment needed.
I would say that the club lounge requires more attention. The area looks already old and warned out. Some of the staff at lounge also requires better training. Only few can understand English.
