Renaissance Suzhou’s Prime Location
Located right between Suzhou’s historic heart and its bustling modern business hub, guests of Renaissance Suzhou Hotel can walk along the majestic Xiangmen city walls and relax in the UNESCO World Heritage site classical Chinese gardens, all in the same day.
Just a quick 10-minute drive brings you to the ancient Pingjiang Road, a famous street where guests can wander the canals while savoring local sugared rice dumplings at the 100-year-old Guan Qian Street. Five minutes in the other direction is the Central Business District, where guests can shop for Western luxuries.
Central Park, just a few minutes away, is the perfect spot for a morning run or afternoon stroll, and nearby Moon Harbor and Jinji Lake act as the idyllic backdrop for a getaway focused on leisure and recreation. Renaissance Suzhou Hotel is the perfect base to explore more than 2,500 years of history.
Suzhou Activities for All Ages and Interests
From museums to hidden gardens, world heritage sites to family-oriented recreational parks, there’s truly something for everyone in Suzhou. The Renaissance’s Navigator service will custom-tailor a half-day Suzhou exploration plan based on your preferences.
Instead of sending you to the popular tourist spots, you will find yourself in places like the Suzhou Couples Retreat Garden – a space filled with musical performances, classical poetry and old-world charm – Dongsheng Lane – a new landmark for graffiti art and street side photography – and Shuangta Market – a revamped wet market with a contemporary food court filled with local street food favorites.

Renaissance Suzhou Hotel
The chic, cosmopolitan Renaissance Suzhou Hotel is strategically located on the sunset side of beautiful Jinji Lake in Suzhou Industrial Park. Overlooking the tranquil and lush Central Park, the hotel is only steps away from the most exciting shopping and fine dining in Suzhou.
Following its refurbishment, the hotel now boasts 365 stylish rooms, three separate restaurants with an extensive array of dining options, seven function rooms providing more than 2,200-meters of events space and a fully equipped, 24-hour gym and fitness center with saltwater swimming and relaxation pools.
The first floor is home to a global cuisine restaurant, showcasing seafood, steaks and six kinds of all-you-can-eat crayfish. After getting your protein fill, lounge at RBar for a glass of wine or a unique cocktail; we recommend the Bacon Negroni (RMB88) or Rain in Southern (RMB78), a delicate balance of jasmine-infused gin, jasmine syrup and freshly brewed jasmine tea.
The second floor hosts Wan Li, with a variety of local dishes, like Suzhou braised eel, and Cantonese roasted meats. We recommend the Assorted BBQ Meat Platter (RMB128) with a selection of Charcoal Barbecued Honey Glazed Pork, Charoal Barbecued Duck Cantonese Style and Poached Chicken in Rose Flavored Sauce. If you're still hungry, indulge in the Late Night Noodle Club, a DIY mifen station serving in the club lounge nightly from 10-11pm.
Against the backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, the Renaissance Suzhou gives you a unique opportunity to explore the timeless beauty of China’s “Venice of the East.”
