The Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai has opened its doors following the culmination of a comprehensive restoration program after the  propertys closure in 2007.

The hotel, which officially opened on 1 August 1929 and enjoys a prime location along the Bund, is famous for its grandeur, including the distinctive copper-sheathed roof 77 meters above ground, white Italian marble floors, and priceless Lalique glass artwork.

The internationally acclaimed design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), worked closely with a team of leading designers, architects and historians to recreate the grandeur and majesty of the landmark property and embody the spirit of its glamorous art-deco heritage.

The newly revitalised Fairmont Peace Hotel offers 270 deluxe guestrooms and suites with a selection of six restaurants and lounges. Included among these is the much-loved Jazz Bar, a Shanghai institution since the 1930s, Signature Chinese restaurant Dragon Phoenix and The Cathay Room, offering views of the Bund from its terrace on the 9th floor. The 8th floor will also host the famed Peace Hall, where the propertys iconic sprung-wooden dance floor still evokes memories of old Shanghai cabarets and gala parties.

Guestrooms feature 1930s period flourishes along with contemporary comforts and cutting-edge technology. Starting at a spacious 45 square metres, the guestrooms feature a soft colour palette and tailored art deco motifs and furnishings. State-of-the-art in-room technology includes a 37-inch plasma stereo TV, a bath-side LCD screen, blue-ray DVD player and wireless and broadband Internet with plug-and-play connectivity.
