Marriott International recently celebrated the opening of the 383-room Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing Hotel in Shanghai. The hotel is managed in partnership with Shanghai Caohejing Park Huagang Properties Ltd., and represents the sixth Renaissance-branded hotel to open in the gateway city.
Renaissance Hotels is the signature lifestyle brand within the Marriott International global portfolio of 17 hotel brands.
The hotel is centrally located in the Caohejing New Technology Development Zone in the Xuhui district, offering a retreat for business travelers in the heart of the neighborhood. Situated within five minutes of Shanghai Metro Line 9, the hotel boasts easy access to the nearby Hongqiao business district, and the shopping and dining hub of Xujiahui. The hotel is also conveniently located near the Hongqiao Transportation Hub and Shanghai International Airport.
"We are delighted to partner with Shanghai Caohejing Park Huagang Properties Ltd. on this new Renaissance Hotel," said Simon Cooper, president and managing director Marriott International, Asia. "The opening of the Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing cements our position as the dominant player in Shanghai, representing our 19th hotel in this vibrant city.
"It also demonstrates our confidence in the strength of the Renaissance brand, which continues to grow in China."
Renaissance Hotels, acquired by Marriott International in 1997, has emerged as one of the most popular brands within the company's portfolio. The newest Shanghai property now represents a diverse collection of more than 150 Renaissance hotels in 35 countries worldwide.
The Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing features 383 deluxe rooms, club rooms and suites, including the Presidential Suite. Rooms are stylishly warm and vibrant and packed full of five-star amenities and technology: fully-wired and equipped to accommodate both business and leisure guests. The area's first international hotel, the Renaissance balances a mix of traditional Chinese décor fused with a contemporary Western feel.
The hotel's chic and spacious interiors with elevated ceilings and expansive windows provide plenty of natural light and a relaxing, spacious environment. Four destination restaurants and the hotel lounge deliver the best in local and international cuisine, and there is ample opportunity to relax and exercise at a 24-hour fitness center, indoor swimming pool and signature Touch Spa.
