The Peninsula Brand Enters Paris

Aug 5, 2014

The Peninsula Paris has opened following a meticulous restoration of a storied 1908 building. Interiors by Henry Leung of Hong Kong-based Chhada Siembieda & Associates showcase glitz, glamour, and Parisian style. Richard Martinet of Affine Architecture & Interior Design spearheaded the architectural restoration, carried out by master craftsmen using traditional techniques to preserve the heritage and authenticity of the building where George Gershwin composed An American in Paris.

The hotel has two lobbies. The Avenue Kléber entrance leads to the traditional Peninsula lobby, featuring soaring curved ceilings, opulent drapery, marble floors, and all-day dining. Meanwhile, the hotel's entrance on Avenue des Portugais is designed for arrival by car. A bespoke hand-blown Lasvit chandelier adorned with a cascade of crystal "leaves" interprets the trees lining Avenue Kléber, and, along with a massive stone installation, creates a luxurious sense of arrival in the second lobby area.

In the 200 guestrooms and suites, high-gloss lacquered architectural features strike a balance against the soft gray and cream palette. Luxurious touches include grand ceilings, elegant furnishings, marble bathrooms, and specially curated contemporary artworks. Customized interactive digital bedside and desk tablets are preset in one of 11 languages. Five of the 34 suites offer their own private rooftop gardens with stunning views over Paris.

Guests can choose from six F&B venues, including the Kléber Terrace, a street-side café sheltered by an ultra-modern glass and stainless steel canopy, and the L'Oiseau Blanc rooftop restaurant, bar, and terrace with panoramic views over Paris. Additional amenities include a spa, pool, and fitness center.
