Marriott Executive Apartments at Tomorrow Square: An At-Home Feeling

a sign of quality in Shanghai accommodation

More Than A Hotel Room In Shanghai

Shanghai, economic juggernaut that it is, is taking the world economic crisis in stride and maintaining focus on the World Expo coming up in 2010.  China’s biggest city just keeps on getting bigger, so it is very handy to stay in a central location from where nothing is too far.  You can’t get more central in Shanghai than People’s Square, and Tomorrow Square Shanghai’s Marriott Executive Apartments have great views over the expanse of green just across the street—and there are not too many big, green parks in Shanghai, so enjoy the view and the proximity to the fullest; People’s Square is a great place for an after-work stroll or a pre-dinner evening promenade.  The Shanghai Museum (the one shaped like an ancient Chinese urn) is just across the square, and the Shanghai Art Museum is right across the street in the old Jockey Club, recalling the days when People’s Square was the Shanghai race course where the beau monde would come to meet for the races.  Marriott’s perfect location on Nanjing Road allows for easy access to the famous pedestrian shopping street to the east and to the many corporate offices to the west.

The apartment option is growing steadily as the line defining short-term and long-term stays widens and blurs.  Temporary work assignments, extended medical treatment, or simply a preference for a fully functional home away from home have seen the demand for serviced apartments increase dramatically in recent years among international travellers looking for something more than a hotel room.  For families especially, the ambience of an apartment is less alien to children than an apartment with a house-like living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom.  In total, there are 255 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments in a variety of configurations.

Located in the same building as the Marriott Hotel at Tomorrow Square, the floors allocated to the apartments are accessible only by residential keycard holders, not by hotel guests.  There is also a concierge desk inside the apartments’ private entrance to assist with aspects of daily life like drycleaning, car service, and accepting deliveries while guests are out.  Apartment residents, however, have access to the hotel’s facilities such as the gym and breakfast buffet, which opens early to accommodate busy people with morning appointments.

As the official serviced apartments for the 2010 World Expo, Marriott offers special rates for visitors coming to China for the event or simply to appreciate the different experience of an apartment instead of a hotel room.  The special rates are also available at other Marriott serviced apartments properties in China.
