Opened in 2010, The Fairmont Peace Hotel breathes new life into the Peace Hotel, a vestige of Shanghai’s pre-WWII glory days. This magnificently decorated building that miraculously survived the Cultural Revolution has sumptuously restored guestrooms and suites, including the famed Nine Nations Suites: the Indian, English, Chinese and American have been preserved from the original hotel, while the French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and German suites have been redesigned in keeping with their original concepts. There are a few lounges to enjoy a cocktail or cigar: Cin Cin, Jasmine Lounge, which also serves afternoon tea, and the Jazz Bar for live music. There are three restaurants, including a casual French bistro, Victor’s, The Cathay Room for modern European cuisine and Dragon Phoenix for Cantonese. The fitness center has the latest in gym technology and also offers group classes. Willow Stream Spa offers massage and spa and beauty treatments based on ancient Chinese healing. The Fairmont is about one hour’s drive from Pudong International Airport.
