For return trip, there is no direct high speed train from Hangzhou to Shanghai Pudong airport. Most of the bullet trains will arrive at SH Hongqiao Railway Station. Upon arrival, you can take an airport shuttle bus or subway line 2 to get to Pudong airport.

For sightseeing, here is an itinerary for reference:
March 25: Temple of Soul's Retreat
March 26: a side trip to Wuzhen Watertown
March 27: West Lake, Song Dynasty Town if time permits

Hi,I think you can go to the West Long-distance Bus Station.
As there are nine of you ,you need at least three taxi, thus bus is better. You can find bus to Thousand Island Lake at the west bus station. You can hire a driver through local travel angent.
It is safe to travel by bus there.

When you visit the West Lake, you could have a lunch at Lou Wai Lou (30, Gushan Lu), which is a time-honored local restaurant. You could have all of these dishes there. In downtown area, you could go to Wai Po Jia, which enjoys high fame in locals and travelers as well.

The bus to Suzhou from the city just takes 2 hours on the way.

THe hotel is in the south of Wulin Square. Wulinmen ticket office of Chian Civil Aviation Administration is just in the square, where the airport bus to the Xiaoshan aitport departs. No trains to the airport and suggest you not go to the railway station. Just take the airport bus. It takes you 80 minutes to Xiaoshan Airport and the ticket fare is 15rmb.
