The Peninsula Paris

A new luxury hotel has joined the elite ranks of France’s “palace hotels.” This distinction was originally created in November 2010 by Atout France, French Tourism Development Agency, to recognize the five-star hotels that are in a class of their own. (In Paris, the other palace hotels include Four Seasons George V, Le Bristol, Le Meurice, Park Hyatt Vendôme, the Plaza Athénée, the Royal Monceau, Shangri-La, and Mandarin Oriental.) There are currently 19 palace hotels.

Just shy of two years since it debuted, The Peninsula Paris has been named a “palace hotel.” The historic Haussmannian building on Avenue Kléber underwent a meticulous restoration, and the luxury hotel opened with destination restaurants (including the rooftop L’Oiseau Blanc), one of the top spas in the French capital, and 200 sumptuous rooms, including suites with rooftop gardens.
