Just returned from legoland and a short hotel stay at renaissance. My second time with this hotel. Booked this hotel as it's relatively new although it's about a 45 mins drive to legoland.
1. Staff are friendly and efficient.
2. Carpark is manned by security guards all the time (at least until 1am) so you feel safe parking your car.
3. Breakfast is nice. A lot of variety and I love the juice station. It really saves the hassle of searching for breakfast with kids (2 and 5 yo) early in the morning. My son loves the idea of filling up juice in his lego water bottle for his legoland trip.
4. Surrounding area has many massage parlor within walking distance so you can have a nice massage after a long day. Also there is a BR coffee shop that sells a wide variety of local delicacies. Recommended food to try: roast pork and char siew, herbal soup, satay.
2. Pool is too small
3. Somehow after my first visit, they removed the need to insert your room card in the lift to access your room floor. Felt a bit unsafe.
4. Some parts of the hotel exterior are dimly lit or very dark. I thought they can add some lighting outside to make walking back from supper a bit safer.
Overall my family enjoyed the stay and we are looking forward to another stay at renaissance.
