|Description||When this property was built in 1982, its thirty stories gave Shanghai, China, an exciting new visual symbol of Western modernity. Renovated in 2005, the Shanghai Hotel is located in the heart of Shanghai's "Consular District," within the city's former French Concession area. The consulates of the USA, Germany and Italy are all within walking distance from the hotel. Fuxing West Road, Huai Hai Road, Chang Shu Road are all thoroughfares for vehicular passage or pedestrian strolls, which take advantage of the cover provided by the same great Phoenix trees that the French had planted in the 1920s to line the streets and beautify the city. Domestic travelers arriving at Hong Qiao Airport are 11 kilometers away while international travelers can use the Maglev train from Pu Dong International Airport, which is 45 kilometers from the hotel. The main Shanghai Railway Station is six kilometers away. |
