The Peninsula’s 235 guest rooms and suites are some of the city’s most spacious, with classic Art Deco furnishings and glorious marble bathrooms with big soaking tubs. They’re tricked out with the latest Peninsula technology and many have staggering views of the Bund and Huangpu River. Those views are also a draw for Sir Elly’s, which serves European cuisine created by a French-trained chef. The extensive spa offers elaborate full-day “Journeys” as well as shorter treatments, a pool, and gym, while the Peninsula Academy offers cultural experiences like a Rolls-Royce tour of historic Shanghai.
In the Area
The Peninsula is centrally located in Shanghai, right on the Bund, which is known for its top restaurants and fashion boutiques. The city’s other culinary standouts include the newly opened Da Dong Duck Restaurant, a branch of the revered Beijing roast-duck institution, where you can ignore the 150-page menu and order the signature dish. To glimpse the fashion-forward city’s history, take a stroll along Wukang Road and the surrounding area, with stops at the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, which documents China through the 20th century, and Hong Merchant, a gallery specializing in contemporary art and antique furniture from the French Concession period in the 1920s.
How to Get There
It deserves every accolade it receives. Collected at the Airport in a Roller, just fabulous, an upgraded suite overlooking the Bund. Breakfast outstanding and every other meal in the Foyer. Wonderful music and ambience. Excellent concierges and the flowers out of this world. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
We spent 2 nights at the Peninsula. The location on the Bund was great. The breakfast was a very nice presentation of many choices of fruits, pastries, cheeses, cereal, etc with the option of ordering an entree. Our room was lovely with all of the amenities we could ever use. However, what put this hotel over the top was the customer service. Every detail was nailed to the top but one particular lady who stood out was Anna Sun at reception. We had not made reservations for our next stop before leaving home not knowing that we would not be able to google and would have limited internet access. Anna spent much time calling the Peninsula in Hong Kong, making our reservations and helping secure a beautiful room in overlooking the river in Hong Kong for our anniversary! It really made a wonderful memory for us and has gotten many comments after I posted pictures on Facebook! She made our trip so much easier and relieved a lot of the stress. We highly recommend this hotel and Anna!
Our second Peninsular hotel on our trip. again the room is perfect, You must have a river view, not for the river but for the skyscrapers on the other bank. Concierge was fantastic i needed documents printed, my wife was booking restaurants cars etc they were excellent.(thank you Mike) . The service in a peninsular is wonderful,
We were meeting friends for dinner and they were coming to meet us. There is no where to wait ,there is one sofa by concierge.So odd. Just the 'restaurant seating'. again like Beijing retail shops less obvious,
Again we will stay again, my wife loved Shanghai we ate at M on the bund, really good ! and Mr and Mrs on the Bund both recommended by the concierge. Great recommendations.
Amazing pool and spa and gym i used each day.
