Fairmont Peace Hotel
Located on the famous Bund, the Fairmont Peace Hotel is an Art Deco masterpiece that combines timeless elegance with modern facilities. The landmark hotel is perfectly situated for an exploration and appreciation of Shanghai’s best sights. One of the oldest hotel in the city, its furnishings recreate the ambience of the 1930s, when it served as a glamorous playground for the elite, where every night was an extravagant gala event and veritable Parisian fashion show. Mezzanine lounges and an octogenarian jazz band all add to the very special atmosphere. Guestrooms and suites are lofty and luxuriously comfortable with the air of a bygone era and a hint of slightly faded grandeur. The eighth-floor restaurant has superb views of the Bund, as does the breakfast restaurant on the second floor from which you can watch the boats on Huangpu River sail by.
The refined elegance of each individual guestroom and suite is a combination of its original Art Deco styling and a rich blend of cultures. Each room is designed with guests’ comfort in mind featuring choice of goose-down or hypo-allergenic pillows, comfortable luxury bathrobes, high-speed Wi-Fi, Le Labo Rose 31 bath amenities and safety deposit boxes. Opulent suites are themed around nine nations and meticulously decorated with features wholly representing the individual country.
