Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel
Ranked #9 of 1,357 Hotels in Tianjin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This almost new hotel is a very good choice if you want to spend a long weekend in Tianjin. Mainly a business hotel it offers excellent packages on weekends and holidays.
The location of the hotel is relatively near the main areas of interest and is very calm. The premises are generous in terms of space, clean and comfortable. One can enjoy the well equiped gym, the spa, the incredible indoor tennis court or the superb swimming pool all day long if the weather or the pollution show their ugly side, something that happens very often in this part of the country.
Finally, the dining options are good and you can enjoy a decent BBQ in the evening and a really good breakfast.

Room Tip: Look for the weekend packages and try to get a room with the Lake view.

We visited this hotel during my recent visit to Tianjin for a business meeting.

On arrival one is taken aback by the sheer size of the property. The hotel has a huge front and on entry the lobby area continues to astound by its size. The center area of the lobby is open all the way to the top with the rooms in a located in circle. They are elevators located on both the left and right making access to the rooms easy from either side. The lighting is dim in the lobby area giving it a nice cozy feel.

The hotel comes with a well equipped gym.

The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable with an assortment of pillows to choose from. There is a working desk area and all the standard amenities. A plus point was the availability of plug points near the bedside (quite necessary in current times with most travelers carrying a host of devices) The view from the room looking out into the front of the hotel is amazing.

The bathroom is quite big as well with a separate bathtub and shower area.

Breakfast was served on the left side of the lobby at the ground floor. It had a good mix of western and local dishes. It was nice to see freshly squeezed juice served and one could choose from the assortment of fresh fruits on display.

The hotel also has a Michelin star restaurant but we did not get time to try it on this trip,

Overall a good stay on a huge property.

Lovely hotel in Tianjin. Large comfortable rooms, very friendly and competent staff. Restaurant was very good with a range of food including local favourites. Very good staff, all spoke and understood English. Would recommend staying there when attending a Conference in Tianjin. Short walk to the Tianjin Spire and Zoo.

restaurant and reception all good. But the room and room service what the hell?

I travel 150 days a year and stay in Marrott chain regulalrly. This place SUCKS. I refuce to walk barefort in the room th carpet is so badly stained. The chair at the desk is broken, I mean one arm is snapped in half,

When Icalled room service at 10.30pm the girl who answered was clearly asleep. Now my Mandarin is crap so I asked for Ice Cream flavours in english and was aksed if I wanted a renaissance burger. After 3 goes and being offered various sandiches I gave up. She even rang me back to ask if Iwanted the burger.

One light in the room si flickering

its a 10 minute walk to the nearest convenience store, not like most places in China where you can buy a banana over the road

Its been 30 minutes since I asked to speak with the duty manger so not looking good.

I will never stay here again and suggest the same to others

I stayed at this hotel for three nights in September. Traffic is wicked in Tianjin, so get a hotel as close to your intended business location as possible for easier access. We were mostly at the convention center which was about a 10 to 15 minute cab ride away. The hotel is just three years old and the property isn't worn yet, regardless of the quality of the construction. The floor plan surrounds a dramatic soaring open lobby topped by glass. They had performers in the lobby that echoed through all the rooms until they shut down. The rooms were large and the bed and pillows very comfortable. My smoke free room was completely smoke free. The gym was excellent; lots of cardio, free weights and weight machines. The buffet breakfast was vast, and delicious but expensive if not in the room rate. My only complaint is that upon check out, I noticed a "service charge" that they were hard pressed to explain but eventually stated it was a "surcharge" for a "lake view." Given that most of the rooms have a view of a modest lake next to the property, I was surprised by this, and never asked or was aware of it. They refused to take it off the bill. It was not a lot of money (about $20 per night) and I didn't have time to argue. And while I have had similar experiences in other Chinese hotels, it was a sneaky approach that I would not expect of a branded American hotel. If you are traveling between Beijing and Tianjin, take the train; very fast and very convenient.

Room Tip: The "lake view" is no big deal. The smog is so bad, the views don't matter much anyho...

Hotel is pretty new with clean and very big room. Best of all, it doesn't have the smell of smoke on the non smoking floor as that's what i found when i stayed at Renaissance TEDA earlier.

Buffet breakfast was good and choices were very unusual with a soyabean station and Korean rice option. They have a great fresh fruit selection and a made to order juicer! Servers at the restaurant can be more efficient and attentive but bearable experience.

Bathroom Amenities were good but surprised to find that they dont provide cotton pads and buds which is rare

Very good experience and just hope the standard can be kept consistently.
