I have been there several days ago, the station is very large but very less crowded, I think 30-40 minutes before departure is enough.

By distance, West Station is a little bit closer but if you want to use public transfer like metro, it can be a little bit hard. You need to change between different lines from West Station to People's square. Hongqiao Station is a little bit far but direct metro line 2 available. So if you will take a taxi to the people's square, West Station is better. If by metro, Hongqiao Station is better.
