Get ready, Shanghai. Mandarin Oriental is coming to town. Hot on the heels of Four Seasons Pudong and Twelve at Hengshan (a Luxury Collection Hotel), the Hong Kong-based luxury hotel group is heading to mainland China for the first time. (You can see why we think Shanghai is such hot hotel turf these days.)
Opening on April 1, 2013, the Mandarin Oriental Pudong Shanghai will offer glam, contemporary digs on the banks of the Huangpu River in Pudong’s central financial district. Pierre Barthes has been appointed General Manger.
There will be 44 suites, 318 guest rooms, and 210 service apartments with marble bathrooms, panoramic views, and the latest in technology. At 788 square meters, the Presidential Suite will be the city’s largest. Facilities include six restaurants and bars; expansive meeting and function space; a spectacular spa with 13 suites; 25-meter indoor pool and high-tech fitness center.

Following the debut of the Shanghai property, Mandarin Oriental will open luxury hotels in Guangzhou and Beijing.
