Fairmont’s property in Shanghai, the Peace Hotel, reopens to welcome guests this week. The museum of the hotel also opens so visitors can appreciate their collection of memorabilia.

Press releases have used the words glamorous, majestic, and grandeur but the refit is not you greige boutique accommodation. To put things into perspective, expect marble floors, Lalique glass, and copper roofing.

The hotel’s 270 rooms feature an aura of the 1930’ coming with updated 21st century amenities like espresso machines, WiFi, and LCD television in your bath. The toiletries though remain to be traditional with Miller Harris.
