Toronto, May 5, 2010 - Fairmont Peace Hotel General Manager, Kamal Naamani has launched a nationwide hunt to source memories and memorabilia of Shanghai's beloved art deco landmark. The hotel, which officially opened on August 1, 1929, was widely known as the luxurious "Number One mansion in the Far East" for its prime location along the Bund and for its grandeur, including the distinctive copper-sheathed roof that rises 77 meters above ground, white Italian marble floors, and priceless Lalique glass artwork.

The Peace Hotel has undergone three years of meticulous restoration to reinstate it to its rightful place as Shanghai's most prestigious hotel address.The hotel will have a phased launch with facilities opening from spring onwards culminating in the grand opening later this year. 

Fairmont also plans to open a Peace Hotel Museum and will create an archive showcasing wonderful stories and personal treasures where visitors can learn more about the unique and colorful history of Shanghai's most famous building.
Whether it is silverware, chinaware, monogrammed goods, historic photographs, postcards, art, past menus, trinkets or great stories or anecdotes, Fairmont is interested
 "To fully showcase the rich heritage of China's grandest hotel, we'd love past guests to share with us their memories, memorabilia and  'borrowed' items so we can record and preserve history for future generations," commented Naamani.
Contributors who take the time to share their reminiscences and recollections will receive a special invitation to view the exhibition when it opens.Those that temporarily or permanently bequeath special items that are selected to be showcased in the museum will be invited to a cocktail reception hosted by Naamani in the fall.

 "As Shanghai's most beloved hotel, we take great pride in being the custodian of this legendary icon.  We know there are a number of pieces of memorabilia out there that have become personal treasures and wonderful memories. We are excited to see what memories and items find their way back, and we're committed to creating an archive of this great landmark's history so we can continue to share this with future generations," says Naamani.
Those with submissions should include their name and contact details and send details to peacememories@fairmont.com along with fun stories or anecdotes about the provenance of the piece.
