“Good location, comfy rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Our overall experience was positive but, for the price paid, there really shouldn't be anything to complain about. However...

Cons:

- the front desk and restaurant staff speak enough English to get by, but no one could answer any "out of the ordinary" questions e.g. is there a dress code at this restaurant? Do I need a reservation / booking?
- the rooms were cleaned very late so, after a morning of sight-seeing, you could come back to an unmade bed.
- the staff at Fratelli Cafe ignored / misunderstood me when I said I wanted a small pizza, brought the big one and, when I asked for the left over half to be packed up, they shoved it into a plastic bag, leaving me with a squishy mess. And the tomato tasted as if it had been poured straight out of a tin.

Pros:

- the rooms are large and very comfortable.
- the buffet breakfast at BLD is amazing - the made-to-order smoothies are a must-have.
- location is ideal.

I've stayed in this hotel several times already, and the quality of service remained consistent if not improved. The standards are relatively high considering we are in China, and the personell attitude is warm and helpful.
For business travelling is the best place in Beijing I would suggest to my collegues or friends.
The italian restaurant at the first floor, Fratelli Fresh, is northworthy: staff is friendly and chatty, very nice to talk with them, and they are not scared about giving you suggestions about food and even wine (something pretty rare in Beijing). Food is going to be awesome thanks to the new italian chef,I think.
Overall, Renaissance is the perfect place to stay.

This is a well appointed, comfortable hotel but just too far from the center of Beijing. It does sit near a subway station which helps but overall not a great location as it requires a train or taxi ride to reach downtown and tourist locations. Also it seems that very few taxi drivers knew where it was so always carry the hotel business card with you.

Renaissance, Beijing is the best hotel in Beijing and the top choices for me. I started my business travel from Oct, 2012 and I already has lived around 120 nights. When it comes to the reason, I will suggest you to experience the breakfast in 4 floor, wonderful service in 24 F, especially the best bath tub in your room. It will be your fantastic experience that you drink a glass of red wine, watch the TV and immerse yourself in the white bath tub...

I come to Beijing often on business and when I do, I always stay at this hotel. This hotel is perfect for businesspeople as well as tourists.

The location is good, it is about 10 minutes by taxi to Sanlitun, the main tourist shopping/bar/restaurant district. There is also a subway station (Shuangjin) just next to the hotel, which allows you to get anywhere in the city quickly. There is a shopping mall across the street with a foreign supermarket in the basement and plenty of shopping in the surrounding streets for anything you may need. Many foreigners live in the neighborhood so many local shops with a variety of American and European items.

The hotel is very modern but also comfortable and the rooftop indoor eternity pool and gymnasium are very nice. The entire hotel is kept very clean and the food is good too, with an Italian chef on staff. Definitely try the R Burger, it is that great Marriott burger that everyone likes so much. Beds are awesome and there is a selection of pillows if you ask.

The hotel is extremely well managed and the level of service is outstanding. There are employees from all over the world that come through Marriott’s internal exchange program. Many of the Chinese employees speak English, and everyone is always saying hello and asking if you need assistance with anything. I’ll tell you how great the service is. My friend and his wife came to visit and his wife cut her hand trying to open a can of peanuts in the room. The hotel staff took her to a nearby international hospital in the Marriott van and went with her while she got a few stitches, helping to translate and making sure everything went well. They waited with her and insisted on paying the bill. Then they brought her back to the hotel and then next day took them to the airport, all for free. They are just all so concerned about the guests having a good experience. What could have been a bad situation and a bad experience left my friends talking about how great everyone was.

Good room, good bed, good service, good location, good views. Did I miss anything? I obviously can’t recommend this hotel enough.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side of the 3rd ring road. The other side of the building has another building jus...

They collected us at the airport as the service was included in the "pack" of the room. Good driver and good car (believe me, both are not ordinary in China). Check-in friendly and very fast as the luggage service.
Room very nice with all you need and also a nice view.
Highly recommended the club floor with the lounge: good buffet american/asian breakfast and also complete evening cocktails buffet in a nice ambience and service.
The hotel position is also good: in the middle of everything (nothing really close, as distances counts in Beijing) and 5 minutes walking distance from the metro (if too hot or rainy you can go trough the “Viva” shopping mall).
Very good choice both for business and holidays !

Room Tip: Club floor with Lounge access

Internationally, I find Renaissance hotels to be my number one or two choice of hotel brands. For me, they are the sweet spot of value and quality; and this one is no exception. Top notch hotel.

I didn't find the neighborhood all that interesting or the location particularly good or bad. If I knew my way around Beijing better I might suggest something else on the basis of location alone, but otherwise I'm totally satisfied with this hotel. Beijing is a enormous city, so wherever you are, you'll probably be taking a taxi to get somewhere else. Taxi ride from the hotel to Tiananmen Square/Forbidden city is about 10-15 minutes and less than $10.

We used the hotel to hire a car, guide and driver to go to the Great Wall. Well worth it, but beware that the "4 hour" tour option is not enough time to get there and back with any time to see the wall. Beijing traffic is bad--really bad. So you will end up paying overtime. No big deal, just beware.

Room Tip: Like all city hotels, a high floor is better because of street noise.
