The room was a bit musty but the food was good although the menu was a bit limited. Also, the front desk pointed me to the concierge to help me with a bunch of questions and he didn’t speak English. Understandable we are in a non-english speaking country, but for a global/US chain I would expect some language skills especially... More

Renaissance offers nice room accommodations, large variety of breakfast, good gym / spa facilities, but the conference rooms are way too dark for my western standards and foam backed cloth wall coverings make it impossible to hand wall charts with tape or "blue tack" (Only push pins will work). Food service (coffee/tea breaks) for events is OK, impersonal, and devoiced... More

Rooms' design is a bit outdated and average-sized. Good TV with multiple channels and movies available. Courteous hotel staff. Overall, my stay was good for a short 4-day business trip but nothing outstanding.

The rooms are comfortable but average size. The hotel itself is very nice. The restaurant serves a great breakfast buffet with many choices. Anything from cereal and croissants to rib tips and french toast. The food is very good but it is a little difficult to get refills on your drink. The check-in was a little slower than most hotels...

The cleanliness, staff and food were all top notch at this hotel. The location has many Japanese restaurants. For Chinese food, the hotel is a good choice. Though I would have preferred being closer to the Bund and chinese restaurants,the atmosphere and service there balanced those drawbacks.
