This business hotel was built in 1934 with an artistic European-style design and can look back on more than 70 years of history. Having a reputation in the Far East as an 'International Mansion', the hotel was the tallest building with a typical Art Deco design in the south-west of Shanghai at that time. It offers guests a bird's-eye view of the city below and looks like an eagle opening its wings, creating an imposing towering monument. The classic European architecture carries profound historical significance. As one of the 6 most famous old hotels in Shanghai, the hotel was widely known all over the world for having accommodated celebrities, administrators and merchants. Many other features are a superb representation of the modern day architecture in Shanghai.
