Waldorf Astoria to Open in Shanghai

By Butterboom Writers  /  June 10, 2010

Get ready for more luxury hotel openings in China.

The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai is set to open late July 2010. Located at the former heritage building of the Shanghai Club on the Bund, the new property will house 20 suites and all the grand luxurious details that is to be expected of a Waldorf hotel.

The grand ballroom comes with a balcony which we are guessing will be booked out with weddings and balls. Check out the Long Bar, a 110-foot bar built to the specifications of the original installation in 1911.

This will be only the first part of the opening as a second tower is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2010 and will include two restaurants – The Grand Brasserie and Peacock Alley, as well a heated swimming pool, library, spa, health club and a Presidential Suite. The 249 room building will be located on Sichuan Road behind the Bund and connected to the first building via a courtyard.
