The Huating Hotel (Huating binguan) is a five star hotel located in the southwestern part of Shanghai, right beside the famed shopping Mecca of Xujiahui. The hotel has a good set of transport routes both within the city and with links to outside. It is just steps away from the Wantiguan (Shanghai Indoor Stadium) subway station which links up to most of Shanghai's commercial and business centers.

The hotel is a fair distance from the center and sights of Shanghai, centered around the People's Park and the Bund, but the decent transport system should not make this too much of a problem.
