Classic meets contemporary on the Bund

207 Rooms / 33 Suites

Like the city itself, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund is split in two: There’s the more than 100-year-old historic part of the building and the new modern tower. The rooms similarly meld old and new with old-fashioned glass candy jars that hold housemade treats like balls of white chocolate-covered Krispies, while the marble bathrooms come with televisions built into the mirrors and electronic Toto toilets loaded with buttons. Can’t get enough of those complimentary in-room sweets? Pick up more in the tempting daily spread in Peacock Alley. Don’t spoil your dinner though — Pelham’s French fare and Wei Jing Ge’s regional Chinese cuisine make the hotel a fine-dining destination.
