Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund - Shanghai, China - 5 Star Luxury Hotel

Rooms & Suites: 257

A newly built modern tower connects to an all-suite historic heritage building - The Waldorf Astoria Club - once the legendary Shanghai Club.

Located at the center of The Bund, a city boulevard which runs alongside the Huangpu River and one of the most photographed postcard scenes of city, the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund mixes the history and culture of the surrounding district with a taste for 21st century sophistication.

The Waldorf Suites in The Waldorf Astoria Club are decorated in classical European style with plush amenities, clawfoot bathtubs, exquisite chandeliers and the signature Waldorf poster bed. All 255 rooms and suites are fitted with state of the art in-room entertainment, a walk-in closet, and a marble-finished bathroom featuring a double vanity area with bathtub and separate shower. The new tower also houses a Noble Suite and a President Suite, each with two bedrooms laid out to impress. Many rooms overlook the scenic Bund while others feature views of the surrounding historic sites.

The dining experience at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund mirrors that of the legendary Waldorf=Astoria New York. Pelham's fine dining Restaurant presents a contemporary styled menu infused with classic French haute cuisine traditions. The Salon is an ideal lounge for high tea, intimate gatherings or simply a quiet place to read a book. The Long Bar features an impressive 110 ft counter, built to the original specifications of the 1911 bar, at that time, celebrated as the longest in the Far East. The Chinese Restaurant, located in the attic of The Waldorf Astoria Club with a view of the Bund, is a marvel of treasures, from original antics to the cuisine itself. The Grand Brasserie connects the new tower with The Waldorf Astoria Club and features an impressive all-day menu that caters to various palates. The Peacock Alley on the mezzanine level overlooks the Grande Brasserie, and in the tradition of its New York namesake, is the place to be for Afternoon Tea as you watch the world go by.
