Opening in late 2009, the ninth property in The Peninsula Hotels' portfolio fronts the historic Bund with spectacular views of the Bund, Huangpu River, Pudong and the gardens of the former British Consulate, and blends with the historic architecture of its landmark neighbors along the Bund -- a UNESCO-designated Modern Heritage Site.
The opening of The Peninsula Shanghai heralds the return of parent company The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited to its roots, as it owned and operated four of Shanghai's most celebrated hotels -- The Kalee, Majestic, Palace and Astor House Hotels -- in the first half of the last century. With a distinguished heritage as Asia's oldest hotel company, The Peninsula Hotels is proud that its newest hotel returns to Shanghai, one of the world's most exciting cities. Superbly located on the historic Bund in the very heart of Shanghai, on the banks of the Huangpu River and conveniently located near the shopping capital of Nanjing Road, The Peninsula Shanghai offers commanding city and garden views, luxurious comfort, sophisticated facilities, extraordinary dining options and the legendary Peninsula service.
With city views overlooking the hotel fountain and forecourt, or towards the old 1020s International Settlement buildings, Deluxe Rooms enjoy all the elegance and comfort of a Superior Room, with more space, a table and a separate walk-in wardrobe, complete with luggage bench, dressing table, magnifying mirror, hair and nail dryer. Choose from a twin or king-size bed and enjoy the in-room sound system, all controlled from one sound bar.
The Peninsula Shanghai's 235 guestrooms (including 55 suites) are amongst the largest in Shanghai, with a typical Deluxe Guestroom being 55 sq m (600 sq ft), and most featuring stunning views of Pudong, the Huangpu River, the Bund or the gardens of the former British Consulate. In tones of celadon or cerulean blue and ivory, the rooms are elegantly designed to provide luxurious comfort and features, with Art Deco-inspired interiors seamlessly blending traditional Peninsula standards of comfort and state-of-the-art technology with elements of Chinese heritage. Exotic woods, imported stones, black lacquer, carved glass and accents of polished chrome combine to create a luxurious environment where design meets functionality, and Art Deco meets technology, providing a unique and distinctive sense of place -- a signature Peninsula feature in each property around the world.
