The first major building built on the Bund since it’s steady re-gentrification, it’s hard not to see the Peninsula Shanghai as a symbol of a city that’s going places. And what a symbol it is. The lobby is grandiose ( picture high ceilings, chandeliers, and all smiles staff in pillboy hats ) without feeling overdone. The room designs are a modern take on Art Deco which pay homage to 1920’s Shanghai with plush carpets, royal blue or celadon green interiors and dark woods for the television cabinets and writing desks. Suite’s come with separate sitting areas, and those higher up the pecking order have terraces overlooking the Bund, along with private Jacuzzi’s and gym. All, offer exceptional views of the Huangpu and skyline. For one of the best night out’s in town, head up to the open air Sir Elly’s Rooftop Bar to admire 270 degree views of Huangpu River, Suzhou Creek and the Pudong skyline and host of the city’s movers and shakers shooting the breeze.
