Fairmont Peace Hotel underwent a renovation in 2008, which revamped all of its guestrooms and suites. Today they’re infused with the original Art Deco influences and Eastern elements that once helped Shanghai rise to its billing as the Pearl of the Orient. The rooms at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel feature silk wall coverings along with comfortable furnishings and rugs. Lavish touches include a fully stocked bar with proper glassware, a dining room table and dressing room with boudoir. Just outside the windows you’ll enjoy a breeze from the nearby Huangpu River. The rooms do feature some contemporary touches — LCD TVs and espresso machines — but these modern perks are tucked away so you’ll feel immersed in the Old World style.
