Situated on the Bund riverfront, Peninsula Shanghai is located in one of the city’s most coveted locations, with easy access to luxury shopping, art galleries and restaurants. But there’s plenty to discover within the hotel, too, including The Rosamonde Aviation Lounge, which celebrates China’s aviation history, and a replica of a 1930s elevator that guests can use to reach the second floor. Building upon these artifacts, the sleek interior recalls the 1920s and 1930s, when Shanghai was dubbed ‘the Paris of the East,’ with a distinct Art Deco style complemented by Chinese decor. The sumptuous Peninsula Suite showcases refined opulence through chinoiserie wallpaper, rich cream and ivory hues, and marvelous chandeliers that hang in the two-story living room. There’s a residential feel to the 4,305-sq-ft space through the grand dining room, fireplace, private gym, kitchen, pantry and balcony with views of the city’s skyline.
