As I got Marriott's gold reward in 2013, when I visited the hotel, they upgraded my room to suite even though I order a normal room. So my partner and me could enjoy the view of the Shanghai Bund. Location is also nice. The hotel is near the Shanghai Metro and could walk to the Yuyuan and downtown (Nanjing west... More

Nice clean hotel but I would rate it as a 4 star hotel for service not a 4.5 star. The bar opposite reception needed better training of staff as they had no idea making cocktails & on ordering a glass of Champagne was given a measly half a glass & at $34 AUD would expect to get the standard glass....

This Renaissance property is clean, modern, and everything I expected from the Marriott name. I love that the hotel is within a 10 minute walk to Yu Gardens and the huge tourist bazaar there. So after a long afternoon experiencing the unique shopping there I have a nice, cool, quiet escape when I get back to the hotel. The view... More

Good location and close to metro and Yu Garden! Rooms are big and very comfortable! Enjoyed the bath with glass separation to the room! Though the reception is on the forth floor, the concierge at the ground floor are very helpful! For the buffet breakfast watch out the step to access the restaurant!

A very pleasant and laid back hotel, with easy access to the metro service and just a short walk from the towns. The only downside is the air conditioning - or lack thereof, it's easy to overheat if you are not used to hot climates as the aircon is rather pathetic and difficult to adjust. Despite this I would definitely... More

A well - located, convenient hotel. Good convenient, central location, friendly staff, comfortable. Had stayed there in 2013 and was not disappointed in 2014. Breakfast pricey - this seems to be a general trend though. Metro station opposite so easy to get around. Will aim to stay there next time in Shanghai.

We had a two night stop over in Shanghai. Our driver picked us up from the airport, it was about 50 min drive to city from Pudong (9am). Hotel is centrally located just by Yu Gardens. Efficient check in. Breakfast ok, best and cheapest dinners & snacks were definitely from the cafe/bar by the lobby. Lovely room, quiet and clean.... More

I cannot praise this hotel enough. From check in to check out they did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. We were fortunate to receive a room upgrade (we go to Shanghai a lot) which gave us access to the guest lounge. Here they serve breakfast, brunch,lunch, afternoon tea and dinner as part of your room rate. The food... More
