JUNE 2014 – Peninsula Hotels announces the opening of Peninsula Paris, its grand entrance into Europe. Peninsula Paris sits just steps away from the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue des Champs Elysées at 19 Avenue Kléber in the heart of the elegant 16th arrondissement.

The property is a late 19th century classic French-style building, which first opened in 1908 as the Hotel Majestic. One of Paris’ most famous landmarks, the Majestic “grand hotel” enjoyed 40 years hosting the rich and famous, the titled and tycoons, together with leading lights in the world of the arts, literature and music during the “Belle Epoque” and “Années Folles”, when Paris was at the height of its creativity and glamour. Historical highlights include George Gershwin composing “An American in Paris” while staying at the hotel in 1928, while the Paris Peace Accords, negotiated by Henry Kissinger and bringing the Vietnam War to a close, were signed in 1973 in the salon which is today Le Bar Kléber.

Peninsula have been careful to preserve the heritage, authenticity and the spirit of the building, while setting spectacular new standards in design, luxury and comfort. Interiors have been designed by Henry Leung of Hong Kong-based Chhada Siembieda & Associates Ltd and the architectural restoration spearheaded by Richard Martinet of Affine architecture & interior design, the building has been meticulously restored by teams of French master craftsmen, utilising traditional techniques in use for hundreds of years.

Exquisitely restored spaces will be complemented by contemporary art installations, furnishings and technology. Dazzling rooftop spaces and private terrace gardens offer 360° views and glamorous extras that will make The Peninsula Paris a decidedly 21st century palace.
