The Celebrity Garden is a residential complex that is managed by the Rayfront Hotel chain. It occupies a total area of 200,000 square meters and includes eight towers. The property is equipped with a high-tech security and surveillance system, as well as a range of onsite facilities, including: an indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, and business center.
The property is divided into two distinct sections. The first section features affordable, no-frills hotel rooms. The rooms come well-equipped and benefit from housekeeping and other services. Stays range from days to months, with guests praising the hotel’s competitive pricing structure, as well as its superb location. Reservations are booked by foreigners and locals alike, and the hotel is a favorite for conferences. Still, those looking for a more luxurious experience may be better served by the property’s second section, which features high-end serviced apartments and routinely rates higher in reviews.
Celebrity is located in the commercial, fast-paced district of Xuhui. Alongside Huangpu District and Jing’an District, Xuhui District is one of the city’s major affluent urban districts. Known for its history as an academic and religious center, gorgeous tree-lined streets in the Former French Concession area, and an endless array of shopping and dining options, Xuhui has remained as a long-time favorite of expatriates and locals alike.
Once owned by the Xu family, Xuhui’s Xujiahui area (the heart of the district) became engraved in time when one member, Xu Guangqi, rose to become the country’s most prominent Catholic convert and, in cooperation with his foreign counterparts, translated influential texts between Latin and Chinese. Over time, the area became known as a Catholic stronghold and a center of learning, as well as for its ties to the neighboring French Concession. Although much of the area was repurposed for industrial purposes in the mid-1900s, a 1990s development project has revived the area and transformed it into a major commercial area.
Today, Xuhui District is home to a number of key roads and sites, including: part of Huaihai Road, part of the Former French Concession area (shared with Huangpu), Shaanxi Road, Wukang Road, Fuxing Road, Shanghai Stadium (IKEA nearby), Panyu Road and Jiaotong University. It also borders Huangpu Creek, includes the South Shanghai Railway Station and the Inner Ring Elevated Road (an expressway), and provides for easy access to Huangpu, Pudong, Changing, and Minhang. As a central district, the area is well supported by the city’s expansive metro system, and some areas can be even be reached by bike or on foot.
