Travel Today - Peninsula Paris This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from all-new The Peninsula Paris, but donâ€™t let â€śnewâ€ť fool youâ€”The Peninsula Paris is located in a late 19th century classic Haussmanian building, which first opened as one of Parisâ€™ most luxurious â€śgrands hotelsâ€ť in 1908. Itâ€™s been a hospital, a military headquarters and the hotel that inspired George Gershwin to write An American in Paris.
The hotel has all the amazing (and expected) Peninsula touches, a great Chinese restaurant, and a real bonus: one of the greatest hotel rooftop bars in the world. From there, you can see every major Paris monument. Impressive by dayâ€¦.spectacular at night. Like my other favorite hotel, the Peninsula in Shanghai, the Paris version does it right.
