Business travelers staying at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund don’t have to be tied down to the conference rooms — the hotel has several other options for entertaining clients and holding meetings. There’s Long Bar, aptly named for its lengthy marble-topped bar; Peacock Alley, where you can indulge in epicurean bites and plenty of wine; and Salon de Ville, which hosts afternoon tea. All three are impressively decorated and, with the Waldorf’s impeccable service, will suitably impress your guests.
When you’re ready to buckle down, head to the hotel’s business center, which has fax and printer stations (hotel guests’ first five pages are free of charge). Meeting rooms are also available here by the hour. Adjacent to the business center is the library lounge, which is open to all guests and outfitted with dark wood shelves, English- and Chinese-language novels and coffee table books and porcelain Ming dynasty style vases. There’s a coffee and tea station with pastries available all day alongside a mini-fridge with bottled water and soft drinks. Sink into a stone-colored leather wing chair, set your coffee on the marble-topped table and stare out the wall of windows at the surrounding cityscape.
