The Peninsula Paris

Paris' gilded and thoroughly modern hotel
It’s fitting that The Peninsula Hotels’ first outpost in Europe is in Paris, a city where inconspicuous grandeur is a way of life. The Peninsula Paris has been meticulously renovated to restore the classic 1908 Haussmannian building’s stature.

Originally named Hotel Majestic, the regal hotel was famous for hosting posh society events in the early 1900s. The building has seen many dignitaries, artists and socialites throughout the years. American composer George Gershwin wrote “An American in Paris” while staying at the original hotel in 1928. After World War II, the space was used as an international conference center.

In present-day, the 19th-century hotel is modernized with luxury amenities and modern technology in the guest rooms, a world-class art installation in the lobby, six restaurants and a spectacular spa.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The location of the hotel simply cannot be beat, with the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées and some of the world's best shopping all within close walking distance.
  • The stately hotel is a striking landmark in Paris, with its marble, gold-leaf finishing, rich wood paneling and other intricate details revealed post-restoration.
  • In the grand and light-filled lobby off Avenue des Portugais (in true luxury hotel fashion, the hotel has two lobbies), you can see the striking “Dancing Leaves” installation, a masterpiece of 800 hand-blown crystal leaves created by the Lasvit crystal atelier in the Czech Republic. Other major installations include a sculpture by Spain’s Xavier Corberó, and a contemporary mirrored work of art in the courtyard by Ben Jakober, another internationally celebrated artist.
  • The Peninsula Spa Paris boasts more than 19,000 square feet and includes saunas, aromatic steam showers, relaxation rooms and exquisite treatment rooms where you can book holistic, Oriental and European-inspired treatments.
  • There’s also a fitness facility and a 72-foot heated indoor pool, which has a stunning floor-to-ceiling cascading water feature along one wall.
