Ian Schrager, the American visionary and pioneer of boutique hotels, brings the celebrated EDITION brand to the metropolis of Shanghai.

Following the success of the EDITION Hotels in London, New York, Sanya, China and Miami Beach, The Shanghai EDITION represents a new kind of innovation and authenticity in luxury travel; a modern oasis of comfort at the heart of one of the world’s most populous cities. The art-deco former headquarters of Shanghai Power Company on Nanjing Road, built in 1929,is now home to the public areas and amenities of the hotel: restaurants, bars, rooftops, spa and meeting and events areas.

The Power Building has been fused to a new skyscraper, which houses the 145 guest rooms of the hotel, creating a multi-dimensional old-to-new space. Every room features the conveniences travelers and revelers have come to expect and rely on. State-of-the-art beds are adorned with imported luxury Anichini linens and unique and custom designed furniture with carefully selected textiles. The bathrooms are finished in white marble, detailed in contrasting black metal, with custom-scented Le Labo amenities as standard. The slanted windows, all of which give breathtaking views of Shanghai and The Bund, add to the feeling of insulated calm within the rooms. The walls and floor of the bedroom and living areas are clad in light oak, creating a sense of warmth and domesticity.

Restaurants, bars, and entertainment include: Shanghai Tavern, Michelin Starred Chef Jason Atherton’s all-day dining, brasserie style restaurant and HIYA, a new Japanese restaurant, also by Atherton; Punch Room, the sophisticated cocktail lounge first made famous at The London EDITION; Canton Disco, a traditional Cantonese restaurant concept, with a contemporary update; The Club Room - a gentleman’s club-inspired lounge area that exudes a sense of warmth and exclusivity; and Electric Circus, a fresh kind of club and VIP lounge and nightclub, in the tradition of Ian Schrager’s first venture, Studio 54.

Other communal spaces include a series of modular meeting and event floors, a fully landscaped tropical Roof Garden and one of few urban green spaces in Shanghai, equipped with a bar and cinema; the Urban Lobby, the threshold that connects the heritage building and the postmodern tower, a swimming pool sunk in stone and overlooking the urban landscape; a gym, spa, and multiple terraces.

Although, the hotel will officially open in October 2018, travelers can now stay in the hotel, click here to see room prices and book.
