Name: Intercontinental NECC
Intercontinental has just opened its fifth hotel in Shanghai. NECC has opened for business in the new Hongqiao CBD, close to Shanghai’s Hongqiao International Airport (15 minutes away by car). Pudong Airport is a one-hour drive away which makes this an ideal location for both city centre attractions such as Qibao Ancient Town and Shanghai Outlets Mall as well as having good airport access.
The 536-room hotel is well located in the Shanghai and the Yangtze River Region and features 2,200 sqm of event space ideal to play host in one of the worlds largest exhibition markets.
The rooms are stunning with open plan bathrooms and the communal areas are impressive with hugely high ceilings and a no-expense-spared feel.
There are four restaurants and bars at the hotel along with an Intercontinental Club (see why I like club lounges so much in my review of London’s best hotel club lounges), a business centre and an indoor swimming pool.
