Ranked the number 8 hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure in 2015, The Peninsula Shanghai is located just a short walk from The Bund riverfront, and the nearest metro stop is just a ten-minute walk away. Sleek chrome fixtures, bright white fabrics paired with gold accents, and marble bathrooms give guests the feeling of true luxury in this hotel.
If you’re looking for an extremely attentive staff, look no further. Pill-hatted ‘pageboys’ run errands in a snap, and the concierge can gather experts for heritage walks and art tours at short notice. In addition, the hotel yacht (yes, they have their own yacht) can be hired for private river cruises, and the hotel’s own fleet of BMWs and Rolls-Royce Phantoms is available for airport transfers. So roll up to your flight in style!
Rooms are sophisticated but not overly lavish or gaudy. Elegantly styled with mood lighting, rooms are comfortable; fireplaces, private terraces, and grand pianos are peppered throughout the Peninsula Shanghai for guests to enjoy. The pool and spa also provide a great escape beneath a glass roof.
Three restaurants serve hungry guests at The Peninsula Shanghai. Travelers can also enjoy afternoon tea in The Lobby for a true cultural experience. At dusk, the outdoor terrace of Sir Elly’s is just the place to unwind with a handcrafted cocktail; don’t miss the light show that plays across the skyscrapers of Pudong. Finally, if you’re looking for traditional Cantonese cuisine, check out Yi Long Court, where food is fit for an emperor.
