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
we stayed at this hotel for 5 nights recently
great position on Nanjing West road
Only thing is it seemed that most guests were there on business rather than vacation so the hotel didn't have a real holiday atmosphere
room was spacious and clean however they first tried to put us in a very damp smelling room - an expensive corner room that we had booked and had a humidifier going - they did move us when we asked but it was disappointing that they tried to put us there to begin with . we had also requested a Bund view and didn't get it -
Mainly wrote this review to mention the excellent service we received by "Apple" who was most attentive in the executive/ club lounge -she really tried so hard to accommodate us and was very friendly and humble
Marriott Tomorrows Square is in a fantastic building and location. Lobby on 38th, executive lounge on top and rooms in between.
Marriott CSRs to checkin we’re polite and friendly
Rooms nice and clean but outdated.
Executive lounge on top floor has great views. Food was average and little service. ( went 3 times and never saw a Marriott Executive Lounge Greeter ).
Great library on Top floor. Classy touch
Lobby restaurant on 38th has good selection of food for breakfast. Not enough servers. ( Saw server once in 40 minutes, tough day without coffee)
Gym on 6th floor was nice. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Valet staff friendly and quick to grab a car.
Overall. Great location and neat Building. Close to Expats area, shopping and restaurants. Rooms need upgraded and service is below other Marriott Properties in Shanghai.
The hotel occupies the top 15 or so floors of a 60 story building so the views are great. The rooms are large and the bedding is very comfortable. The concierge lounge is open most of the day and offers a very nice selection for breakfast and happy hour. The concierge staff is extremely helpful. The location of the hotel is convenient to the Metro which is clean, cheap and efficient. It is also easy to get a taxi to and from the hotel. Check in and out was quick and there were no problems. We stayed at this hotel twice during our two week trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. My only slight annoyance is that the rate to or from the hotel in the hotel's car is roughly $150 while a taxi is about $15.
This hotel is gorgeous and conveniently located near Line 2 train station. Very easy to get to via Maglev and train station from airport. This was our 5th Marriott property we stayed at on our trip...so we had a lot to compare it to.
Pros: Check in was quick - on 38th Floor, we stayed on 45th floor. Room was gorgeous and well appointed. Corner room and Bed were sooooo comfortable. This was tail end of our two week trip and we were exhausted. Slept 16 hours! Breakfast was great! Plenty of options. Concierge- very good. Location to Bund area 25 min walk if you don't get lost. Easy to get to.
Cons- The staff in the main restaurant are slow and inattentive. Had to get up several times to ask for things. Dirty tables everywhere. Just not good service and not friendly. No smiles. Also, the dining room furniture is definitely showing wear and tear. Trying to get to the pool is like going through a maze. From 45th floor, you need to take elevator to 6th floor, walk across indoor bridge, take elevator to 7th floor walk down two long hallways...then you are there.
All in all- great stay and would recommend.
The JW Marriott at Tomorrow Square leaves nothing to be desired. From the moment your car arrives to the moment you walk out of the building the staff will be ready and willing to assist you in every step. The views of Shanghai are breathtaking as rooms start around the 40th floor. Top floor executive lounge allows you to see the world from above while being served by some of the most courteous individuals I've come across. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with bathrooms that make you never want to leave. Do not pass on the opportunity to stay at this hotel if you have the chance.
