Barack Obama joins the list of American Presidents who stayed at Shanghai’s legendary hotel address since 1929.
The former US president Obama stayed at the Fairmont Peace Hotel during his visit in Shanghai for the third annual Global Alliance of SMEs Summit at the Shanghai World Expo Centre. Barack Obama was accommodated to stay in the Presidential Suite.
He was warmly welcomed by George Wee, General Manager of Fairmont Peace Hotel Shanghai and Area General Manager of Fairmont Hotels China.
Mr Wee gave the former US President a special gift and a personalized bathrobe and Le Labo amenities with his name imprinted on it. Barack Obama was also entertained by watching the legendary Old Jazz Band in the Jazz Bar and positioned with the team members.
In response to this heartwarming accommodation, Obama signed the hotel’s visitors book saying, “Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.”
