Holy Cow! This was the last hotel we stayed in on a recent group trip to China. All the hotels were wonderful but they saved the best for last. The Renaissance Putuo is exceptional. I can only imagine the environmental impact but I managed to block that out given my lush surroundings.
The room was ultra-modern and sparkling. The bathroom had sliding WALLS so there was no interruption of lines. You could take a bath and watch TV at the same time. It was wonderful. The desk was un-intrusive and adequate with a menu of plug options for charging your electronics. No need for an adapter. Forget to close the curtain on the wall of windows overlooking the city, shut off the light at the door, or turn on the nightlight after your are already snuggled in bed - no problem. There are controls by the nightstand.
I only ate there for breakfast but it was amazing. Expresso bar, bread bar, fresh yogurt, sushi, international options, the list goes on and on. There was something for everyone and everything was wonderful. Pace yourself.
I'm not sure I would stay anywhere else if I were to visit Shanghai again.
