This beautifully appointed hotel has it all! Everything has been thought out so brilliantly in the rooms you don't want to leave -- a dressing room with a private valet box and nail dryers; multiple lighting plans that go from work to relaxation at the push of a button; comfortable beds; a large bathroom big enough for a football team; triple sound-proofed windows; gauges for the indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity and wind speed. Impeccable service. The nicest indoor hotel pool in Asia. A breakfast buffet and menu with fresh baked pastries, and western and Asian choices that will guarantee weight gain (duck crepes are amazing and irresistible). They even bring you a wet towel at breakfast to remove the newsprint from your fingers. When my traveling companion fell ill the concierge translated all the names of his medicines into Chinese and called the pharmacy. When a last minute ticket was needed to the Opera, someone from the hotel jumped into a cab and grabbed the last one (2nd row!). And there are shops to satisfy a billionaire. This hotel is worth traveling to, even if you don't have to be in Shanghai.

Offering the best of Peninsula traditions and a range of signature services and facilities, including Shanghai's largest guestrooms and the city's highest staff-to-guest ratio, The Peninsula also heralds the return of parent company, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, to Shanghai where it owned and operated four of the city's premier hotels in the 1920s to 1940s - The Kalee, The Astor House, The Palace and The Majestic. ... more less
