Housed in a classic Art Deco tower completed in 1934, the Broadway Mansions Hotel (Shanghai Dasha) is a fantastic place to get a taste of vintage "Paris of the Orient"-era Shanghai. Just across the historic Baidu Bridge from the Bund proper, the Broadway Mansions enjoys great views of Puxi's jumble of older and newer buildings as well as the hypermodern reach of Pudong across the Huangpu River.
Broadway Mansions is convenient to local transportation, just a short walk over the bridge from East Nanjing Road, with its popular pedestrian street and Metro station (Lines 2 and 10).
Guestrooms in this Shanghai hotel feature fine, classic décor as well as high-speed Internet and other modern conveniences. Deluxe Broadway Executive rooms on the 10th and 16th floors offer additional comforts, and the upper floors house banquet halls and a lounge with panoramic views of Shanghai's constantly changing skyline.
Rich in local history, the Broadway has played host to hundreds of dignitaries from around the world and the structure has been designated a protected cultural heritage building along with 14 other Bund buildings, ensuring its survival as one of the city's finest exemplars of a glamorous bygone age.
Hungry guests can dine on Japanese, Chinese or Western cuisine or enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee in the tea house.
Other offerings include a business center, ticket office, beauty salon and free parking.
Guests who are trying to stay fit can use the fitness facilities and then reward themselves with some time in the spa.
