A sleek highrise in the center of the city, this 422-room property offers a sample of the best of Shanghai — excellent dim sum and Cantonese fare at Si Ji Xuan, teriyaki featuring local ingredients at Shintaro, a front-row seat to the action on Weihai Road from Café Studio, and reflexology, acupuncture and holistic treatments at the I Ching-themed spa. Upstairs rooms rise above the Shanghai bustle with deep soak marble tubs, iHome docking stations, flatscreens and DVD players. When you’re ready to venture away from the gourmet restaurants and posh gym, the multilingual concierge can arrange tours of the historic old city.
In the Area
Within walking distance of the People’s Square, the Shanghai Museum, and the Shanghai Grand Theatre, the Four Seasons could not be more centrally located right in the city’s cultural hub, the Puxi district. When you’re done strolling and sightseeing, it’s a 15-minute walk to fabulous shopping on Nanjing Road (high end boutiques are on Nanjing West Road, with bookstores lining the pedestrian section of the street) and Huai Hua Road. Early risers should head to Jing An Park to watch locals practicing tai chi. Afterwards, cross the street to visit Jing An Temple, which has been a peaceful respite in this chaotic city for almost 800 years.
How to Get There
My wife and I just had the pleasure of staying here for a week of business and pleasure. This truly was a wonderful hotel. The staff knew our names and our needs and were helpful, friendly, just lovely people! I do not know how I will ever be able to stay anyplace else. We love the staff here!
If you will be visiting Shanghai make sure you stay at the Four Seasons, you will enjoy every moment of your stay. Highly recommended
The lady who checked me in was phenomenal. She met me at the car, had already checked me in and took me straight to my room. I have never experienced such personalized and ready service before. She answered my many questions, and left me with the most wonderful check-in experience I have ever had.
That evening, I dined on hairy crab at the second floor Chinese restaurant. Ms Lv Tanya helped explain the crab to me, opened the crab, and served me. She was friendly, helpful, and very kind. She made the meal so much more enjoyable.
I can't think of another hotel / travel instance where I have been treated to such personalized and wonderful service. Thank you Four Seasons Shanghai!
The Four Seasons never fails to impress and this property is no exception. Luxurious in every respect, we had a king room with a very spacious bathroom that was comfortable in every way. The staff was courteous and helpful, especially the doorman who made taxi arrangements for us, the buffet breakfast and dinner offered an incredible array of Asian and Western dishes, and the lobby coffee kiosks was an unexpected delight. Would recommend this establishment without reservation!
Great hotel to stay in for the price. Bed was very comfortable, check in/out was quick. Very helpful in getting taxi. Excellent drainage and very clean. The breakfast was lacking in variety but was adequate.
This hotel offers everything you would expect from a Four Seasons, but of particular note, the bed linens are SO comfortable, the amenities are full-size and great quality (L'Occitane), and -- for the dedicated fitness person -- the pool is close to full-size (maybe 22m?) and offers ample space to get in a real workout (with sky view!) The staff is genuinely interested in your comfort, and will go out of their way to make sure you have anything you need. As a nice touch, they even surprised me with a birthday cake and signed card waiting in my room on my big day :) The location is very good, too, within walking distance of People's Square, major metro lines, and the amazing Starbucks Reserve store and upscale mall.
