One of the metropolis’s most iconic hotels, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai sits in the city’s central waterfront area, the Bund. The hotel brings its Baroque Revival architecture and heritage — the building was once home to the prominent Shanghai Club — together with contemporary design and luxurious amenities such Asia-Pacific’s first Waldorf Astoria Spa. You can revel in live jazz at the Long Bar (set in the resplendent former club); savor Chinese and European teas and pastries in the lavish Salon de Ville; and choose between the fine French fare of Pelham’s and the authentic Chinese cuisine of Wei Jing Ge. For panoramas of the sparkling night skyline, stay in the sumptuous Presidential Suite.
