Entering the hotel through one of four vintage revolving doors, guests immediately feel a sense of the style and sophistication the hotel boasted in the 1930s, including the stunning octagonal stained glass.

On the ground floor, an original antique elevator cage is no longer in operation, but remains a feature hinting at the hotel's heritage.

All 270 guest rooms and suites are designed in the style of the 1930s, but have been equipped with contemporary comforts and cutting-edge technology.

Although positioned as a unique heritage and luxury hotel, Wee says the Peace Hotel aims to be accessible so everyone can enjoy it's truly unique and memorable legacy.

"All the money in the world cannot replicate something like this do you go back in time to have the same rich history", says Wee.
