I have been repeatedly to this great place in Shanghai and it is always a pleasure to come back. Rooms are very comfortable and luxurious, service is outstanding and the conditions for business meetings and workshops are highly professional. Right next to the hotel you find one of Shanghai' landmarks, the beautifully restored Yu Garden. A good place to go... More

This Marriott hotel is wonderful! We stayed for several nights and our room was immaculate, quiet, comfortable, and beautifully decorated in a modern style. Out of habit, we stayed on a upper level for a quieter room. Don't miss the swimming pool--located on the top floor with an amazing view. The rooftop bar has an amazing city view at night... More

Perfect place to stay in Shanghai. Standard room was lovely and faultless, particularly the bathroom. Nice food and cocktails, especially the wide selection on offer at breakfast. Situated 5 minutes walk from old Shanghai and next to a Metro Station this was the perfect hotel for us.

Best choice for family staying - near to public transport, shopping, food, sightseeing, quality hotel stay, etc etc. Magnificent night view if you choose the right wing; looking out from the full height window glass panel. Hotel food was good. Local ones not bad too, within walking distance (some local eateries open throughout the night - right side from the... More

Renaissance Yu Garden was recommended by friends and I can say to my friends well done. The hotel is very nice and location is excellent. Me and my family really enjoyed our vacation in Shanghai and the Renaissance Yu Garden hotel accommodations:). Closed to the Hotel are Yuyuan Garden subway station, the famous Nanjing east road and Yuan park

I have stayed here 3 times already. It's close to the metro, the beautiful YU Gardens, it's clean and comfortable and it had the best breakfast buffet I have ever had. The staff is also always ready to help as soon as you step into the hotel. Highly recommended.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
