“Good place when visiting Intex”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

This is a good place to stay when visiting Intex, there are certainly better hotels in Shanghai but avoiding traffic this is perfect. The Sheraton next door is maybe more exclusive but price / quality here is more than acceptable. Decent rooms, free wifi and Club floor is worth the extra money (happy hour). Always try to eat Asian food when in Asia but one downside hers was found that Wwestern food here was of better quality than the choice of Asian food.

Stayed here recently during the Shanghai Private Label Fair Easy walk to Shanghai Mart. Excellent hotel for business. Attentive, prompt and friendly service. Terrific lobby bar, quick housekeeping and helpful doormen. Front desk staff ultra-professional and courteous. Spa open till 2AM for jet-lagged travelers.

I normally prefer Marriott properties when I travel and this Renaissance mostly meets expectations but not nearly as well as it should. The best point of comparison is the Sheraton next door (I stayed there last time) which is comparably priced but really outclasses the Renaissance in decor, food, and service (just compare the Italian restaurants or breakfast spreads for starters). The Sheraton is more refined and elegant. Both are 4 star caliber properties, but the Renaissance towards the lower end of the scale, the Sheraton towards the higher end.

That said, there are no glaring shortcomings but a lot of little things that could have been better. For example, plugs on the in-room coffeepot are different than the outlets. There is one Universal adapter in the room, but on the far side of the desk. No outlet for the hair dryer in the bathroom. The beds are very hard (which I didn't mind, but may not be to most people's preference). Some peeling paint or worn wood here and there. A broken lamp switch. More like that. Small stuff, but not c'mon you can do better.

Internet can be slow and intermittent, but that seems to be common in China.

Waitstaff in the restaurants and lounge did not seem to be very knowledgable about the food or drinks. In every case, I had to ask for a beverage menu. For all the help present, time to table was slow.

Location is good for that area. park across the street if you wish to walk or jog (take the tunnel under the very busy street!).

It was a pleasure to stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Yantze, Shanghai. The rooms were clean, the lobby was a nice meeting spot, the excellent breakfast buffet was included and the concierges were very knowledgable about the area. I would definitely stay at this hotel again! It is close to Pearl City and The Bund, the 580 Store and other Shanghai highlights are all easily accessible by cab. The Club Lounge is excellent and offers a large array of snacks all day.

Room Tip: The rooms on the Club Floor are the best.

Just finished a 4-day stay for business. Have been to Shanghai a number of times but had not stayed at the Renaissance Yangtze. The room and bed were nice -- room is not big, but is comfortable. Bathroom is fine but small. Shower is in the tub and not separate, which is a bit of a bummer. I had club access but didn't spend much time there. The breakfast up there was limited and mostly Asian. The breakfast downstairs would have been pricey but was included in my rate, so I took full advantage -- omelet station, terrific fruit, nice breads, in addition to a full complement of Asian breakfast items. As another poster noted, the hallways are a bit dim, but I didn't mind -- I found it kind of soothing. Staff was very nice and eager to help, both at the desks and the restaurants. Be aware that the restaurants are expensive, but that was no surprise. I am an elite rewards member, so Internet was included for free, which was nice. All in all, it was fine and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if doing business in that part of the city.

I normally stay at Hilton more downtown Shanghai but during this trip I had my meetings closer to this hotel. The hotel is nice with a good breakfast. Free internet is a big + if you are member.
Only things that made the rate go down from 4 to 3 is renovation and I think the bathroom was a bit small. BUt after they do finish the renovation it will for sure be 4. Good price and only 25rmb taxi ride from Hongqiao airport. Location is as well a bit of i must say.
