Now brilliantly reinvented for the 21st century, the hotel has 270 guestrooms, including 39 suites that blend period-inspired finishers with modern amenities. The impressive Presidential Suite occupies the entire 10th floor and is where the flamboyant former owner Victor Sassoon once lived. The Willow Stream Spa brings to life the cultural diversity for which the city is renowned. Ancient traditional Chinese healing combines with up to the minute skincare and wellbeing to ensure the quintessential balance of yin and yang.

Dragon Phoenix on the 8th floor has reclaimed its status as one of the premier Chinese restaurants in Shanghai and promises a nostalgic experience. Victor's is a charming old-school deli with a French Café menu and moreish pastries.
