More and more luxury hotel brands are planting their flag in Shanghai. The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund has announced that the first of its two buildings, the Waldorf Astoria Club, will open this summer, with reservations now being accepted for September 15, 2010 and beyond. The club is located on the famous Bund in Shanghai and is in the home of the former Shanghai Club, an exclusive club originally built in 1911. The neo-classic architectural gem has been restored to its former glory, with designers using archival photographs and historic records as a reference guide.
Each of the Waldorf Astoria Club heritage building's 20 suites is decorated in classic European style. Some amenities include walk-in closets, marble-finished bathrooms, claw-foot bathtubs and separate showers, in-room entertainment and coffee and tea-making facilities.
