Guests stepping into the stately English Renaissance style heritage building constructed in 1911 , which went on to become the legendary, exclusive gentlemen's club, the Shanghai Club in the 1920s and 1930s , will be enthralled by the Palladium columns, detailed gables and sculpted rooftop cupolas of this architectural masterpiece along the city's waterfront promenade. As they pass through the hotel's interiors, into every quiet spaces signature of the hotel's 'better-than-home' residential comfort ambience, and enjoy the legendary Waldorf Astoria experience, they will witness the discreetly opulent harmony of interior design by HBA.
The exterior architecture of both the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund's new tower and heritage building was overseen by US firm John Portman & Associates. For Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund, set to be the luxury hotel brand's iconic property in Asia, the Portman firm designed the impressive 252-room tower annex and remodeled a significant portion of the surrounding city block. The stunning result of the restored heritage building and the glittering new tower annex is destined to become one of the most distinctive architectural landmarks of contemporary Shanghai.
The hotel owns 20 suites in Waldorf Astoria Club and 252 guestrooms with suites in New Tower. All rooms are large in size and luxuriously decorated with most updated facilities. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are kept in very good condition.
The hotel has lots of restaurants offering a wide range of foods.
This 5 star hotel is located in the city centre of Shanghai and was established in 2010. It is close to the Bund and the nearest station is East Nanjing Road Subway.
