Fairmont Peace Hotel Shanghai
Date Completed: 2010 - July
China’s iconic Peace Hotel once again welcomes guests now as the restored Fairmont Peace Hotel. The hotel, which officially opened on August 1, 1929, was widely known as the "Number One mansion in the Far East ", due to its prime location along the Bund and for its luxury, including the distinctive copper-sheathed roof 77 meters above ground, white Italian marble floors, and priceless Lalique glass artwork. HBA worked closely with a team of leading designers, architects and historians to recreate the grandeur and majesty of the landmark property and embody the spirit of its glamorous art-deco heritage.
The newly revitalized Fairmont Peace Hotel will offer 270 deluxe guestrooms and suites with a selection of six restaurants and lounges. Included among these is the much-loved Jazz Bar, a Shanghai institution since the 1930s, Signature Chinese restaurant Dragon Phoenix and The Cathay Room, offering stunning views of the Bund from its terrace on the 9th floor. The 8th floor will host the famed Peace Hall, where the property’s iconic sprung-wooden dance floor still evokes memories of old Shanghai cabarets and gala parties.
