“A very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Stayed almost 2 weeks. Upgraded to 27th floor due to platinum status.

Room
Fabulous bed. Very comfortable. Even upgraded the area of the room seems to be same as normal room. Ended up, I am not sure what is the different between a normal room and an upgraded room.

Breakfast
A good spread of breakfast selection. I like the Indian food corner but I am hoping the choice of meat curries can be changed daily. I enjoyed the lamb curry but out of two week stay I only tasted once. So u can imagine the same meat curry (especially chicken) been on the corner repeated so many days. Juices are really great and fresh unlike some hotel.

Club Lounge (26th floor)
The staffs there really professional. Very attentive, helpful and friendly especially Tony. He really got a good personality. great to know him and been sharing a lot traveling info about Shanghai while i am there. The choice of food are very fixed need to be improved.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends

Stayed here for 2.5weeks in November - really nice business hotel. My room was a spacious corner room. I loved the breakfast buffet - very generous with an amazing selection, even thought a bit pricey. Dining choices are much less limited - there is a Japanese restaurant in the hotel and of course they also serve Chinese food and a selection of western. Selection - limited to burgers -though luck if one doesnt like lamb or beef- some chicken, some fish and pasta, not forgetting the always reliable "Club Sandwich". Menu can be a bit boring if one doesnt speak Chinese or doesnt like Eastern food. Minibar is a bit overpriced - there is a Minimart just across a road -a Dove milk bar is 7RMB not 40. There is also a small plaza in walking distance - not much there but some restaurants including a decent Italian. Hotel staff is lovely and always helpful even when their English is not the best - but it doesnt matter. Renaissance Pudong is definately a good option for business trips in Pudong, Shanghai

Very clean and comfortable hotel located in Pudong area within walking distance of Century Park and about 20-30 mins by taxi to Bund along Huang Pu river.

Excellent breakfast buffet however I would not recommend dinner buffet.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The service meet the expectation for the price.
The food is not too bad, the snack during the break is quite good comparing to other hotels we been to. The location is perfect, has convinient store across the street and not far from main attraction like the bund (taxi didnt cost much and take less than 30 min to get there).

Stylish design and easy-go concept does its job to cover malfunctions of the building. My colleague had encounter with a cockroach in bathroom. Noise-proof grade of windows is close to zero; some mirrors have humidity-infested black canvas. However altogether, it’s very chic, comfy, hipster influenced & no-nonsense.

Room
is just perfect: good toiletries, extra-comfy bed which Marriott’s always is proud of; inviting ottoman. Wifi comes free only in the lobby.

Restaurant
Best breakfast I had in a year of travels. Freshly cooked on order dim sum dumplings on dedicated stall, Eggs Benedict on order two styles (including invented speciality, a la Shanghai), lots of green salads and Camembert cheese, smoothies and an even Indian corner with fresh dal.

Environs.
Walkable distance to underground stations and a park, family mart with cheap beer and snacks just across the road.

Hints.
The upper floor you stay, the calmer it will get. Noise-proof grade of windows is close to zero; Wifi comes free only in the lobby.

This hotel has everything you would expect from a Renaissance. The staff was very accommodating and seemed to go above and beyond.

Location is ideal for business. If you are looking for a hotel for a vacation try a different area.

Delicious breakfast buffet with a good spread. Make sure to have free breakfast included in the room rate.

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times now and each visit has gradually improved.
I attended a meeting here, if I was sight seeing it wouldn't be my first choice. The hotel has all of the usual features you'd expect from a good Renaissance- rooms were good sized, well kitted out with ipod dock, Molton Brown products. I stayed in a room on the club level which I would recommend as the club lounge is great for breakfast or a light snack, drink later in the day.
Main highlights - club lounge, good sized indoor pool and hot tub, spa, Raymond and Jimmy the concierges are good guys.
Main lowlights - noise carries between the rooms. If TV noise from the adjacent room bothers you, bring earplugs. Also, I struggled to make myself understood with some of the restaurant bar staff. Rather shamefully I can't speak mandarin so had to resort to slow English with some enthusiastic finger pointing - but even that failed dismally to order 'egg fried rice' from the bar menu. Got a bit frustrating after a while as my expectation was that at this class of hotel, English would be fluent. However, I reminded myself that I was in China and I should be trying to speak the local language.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to stay on the club floor. It's worth it for the breakfast/snacks.
