Fair­mont Peace Ho­tel

World Travel Magazine - - Asia -

Soar­ing views over the Bund • The build­ing that makes up Fair­mont Peace Ho­tel goes back eight decades. The ho­tel’s North Build­ing was the former man­sion of Sir Vic­tor Sas­soon and later in­cor­po­rated the fa­mous Cathay Ho­tel at the end of the roar­ing 1920s. Ex­trav­a­gant ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails in­clude Lalique glass, a dra­matic cop­per-sheathed roof and Ital­ian mar­ble floors. Nine Na­tional Suites take their spa­cious, lav­ish in­spi­ra­tion from coun­tries all over the world in­clud­ing The Amer­i­can Suite’s Old Hollywood glam in­te­ri­ors and deep, claw-foot tub; as well as a mata­dor-in­spired Span­ish Suite with whirlpool. Par­take in one of the world’s most el­e­gant af­ter­noon teas in the Art Deco won­der of The Jas­mine Lounge. The Cathay Room’s dis­cern­ing wine list makes this restau­rant sparkle high above the Huangpu River. Shang­hai, China
