They upgraded me to a wonderful suite so that wouldn't be the most useful review! My coworker had a regular room so I'll review that. Compact but nice and comfortable. Internet quite usable with normal China issues. Bed and pillow great. Restaurant was really good. Service overall fantastic! High level of ownership by the staff. The hotel is right next... More

We have been on a tour of mainland China for just over two weeks. We have stayed in a variety of hotels that have ranged from below average to excellent. This hotel has been the best. We believe the Renaissance is outstanding. All of the staff members have gone out of their way to help us. The food in the... More

Good service, clean hotel/room, large and various buffet choice. Nice indoor pool but you must have a swimming cap (or buy it at the desk 8$). Not the top Renaissance I experienced, yet over all a good choice. One minus is the location; not centrale but the subway being litterally in the "basement" of the hotel compensates.

Spent 3 nights here. By far the most comfortable nights sleep we had in China. Fabulous breakfast. Great views. Close to MTR. Large supermarket underneath the hotel. Plenty of eateries too. Bath within bedroom but can slide doors closed if you want privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

Western travelers will fill comfortable at home at this hotel. I'm from Indiana in the USA and this hotel represents all of the luxuries of an american five star hotel. Expansive lavish lobby, breakfast buffet (surcharge) with endless choices, big clean modern rooms, nice new bathrooms, etc. My parents had a standard king room with the sliding doors on the... More

As did a previous reviewer, we stayed here as part of a tour. The hotel appears to be part of an anchor to revitalize the non-commercial neighborhood. The only issue I had was its distance from the Bund and downtown Shanghai. For instance, the maglev train was a 45 minute taxi (one and one half hour metro trip) from the... More

I have never felt so at ease as when I was staying at this beautiful hotel. The rooms were natural, yet modern, simple yet elegantly comfortable and luxurious. I can't even begin to explain how pleasant the breakfasts were or how accommodating the staff was. Well, I can I can begin by saying both were fabulous in quality and unobtrusive... More

We stayed at his hotel as part of our china tour vacation. The hotel in itself is excellent. The rooms were amazing and extremely clean with a king size comfortable bed. Did have a bit of a problem figuring out how to close the bathroom walls, but once we figured it out it was a breeze to do. The breakfast... More

The reception and staff are a great Team. Very eager to be of assistance. The room was very spacious, bed while firm, was not as "hard" as some other hotels in Asia! Room and bathroom were spotless and there were 2 pairs of slippers, 2 robes. As well as a convenient safe for your personal items. The lobby bar was... More
