hiwe 4 people will reach on 12 th june morning in shanghai for visiting ITMA i.e tour managed by Orbitz tours(P) ltd and booked 5 star howard jonson on nanjing road. and they offer us indian dinner and breakfast as they said they will bring indian shef from india. i just want to know that hotel is really internatinal 5 star and can they allow to be cooked by indian shef . suggest
I think you refer to Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Shanghai is located at No.595, Jiu Jiang Road, Shanghai. is that correct? This hotel is a 5 star but a little old. I don't think they will allow your chef to cook in hotel, you'd better contact their food and beverage department. Leon Long replied on 2012-06-05
