Sofitel has opened its 21st property in Greater China and its third in Shanghai with the new Sofitel Shanghai Hongqiao in the heart of the city’s Hongqiao central business district.

The Sofitel Shanghai Hongqiao is approximately five minutes from Hongqiao train station, in close proximity to the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) and a short distance from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport – one of two airports that service the city along with Pudong International Airport.
