PEI Mansion Hotel

PEI Mansion Hotel is the embodiment of profound cultural richness.  The hotel, originally built in 1934, will take you on a journey through Chinese history. The hotel is named after Mr. Bei Zuyi, a famed financier who once lived here back in the 1940s (the sound of the Chinese character “Bei” is similar to that of “Pei”). The Family Bei enjoyed a position of influence back in the 1940s. Bei Yuming, son of Bei Zuyi, was a internationally celebrated architect, while Bei Runsheng, descendent of the Family Bei, was once the chairman of the U.S.-China Association for Promotion of Economy and Trade. The Lion Grove Garden in Suzhou—the former residence of the Family Bei has been crowned as one of the four most famous gardens in Suzhou.

 Located in the bustling downtown area of Shanghai, the hotel mimics the architectural style of the Suzhou gardens, a secluded paradise in the modern metropolis. The designers even incorporated some traditional Chinese patterns. Here, both Chinese and Western elements are combined, as in the art piece featuring 101 Chinese characters “Shou” (means longevity) at the eastern entrance.

The exquisite hotel rooms are all adorned with luxurious materials and refined wooden accents. The marble shower rooms, double massage bathtubs, rainforest shower heads and Japanese bath products will definitely help you relax and reinvigorate yourself. The complete stationeries and multifunctional printers will be of great use if you want to fax, scan or copy files. Other facilities and services include small refrigerators, free high-speed wireless Internet access, flat plasma TVs, satellite TVs, safe boxes, luxury motorcades, 24-hour laundry services, room cleaning services, and butler services.

Everything in the hotel is reminiscent of the luxurious lifestyle of the upper class back in 1930s Shanghai, including the antiques displayed in the lobby, the dazzling colored glass ceilings and the OTIS elevator. You will marvel at the staircases, crafted to resemble a dragon flying all the way from the ceiling to the lobby.
