Paris luxury hotel near the Champs Elysee

The Peninsula Hotel in Paris’ 16th Arondissement.

The Peninsula sits in a peaceful location in the 16th, a short stroll from the Champs Elysées and Arc de Triomphe. Opened in August 2014, the Peninsula Brand’s first foray into Europe has a refined, contemporary air while incorporating state of the art technology. Each room comes with a custom Samsung tablet that controls everything from room temperature to TV to room service. Printer/scanner/copiers and electric nail dryers come standard in every room. Each room also has a “valet box” – a discreet compartment within the dressing area where you can place laundry (to be washed) or shoes (to be shined) and an attentive staffer will whisk them away through a special access panel. Morning newspaper deliveries are made in the same unobtrusive way. But the most amazing detail of The Peninsula is the view. Dining at the rooftop restaurant L’Oiseau Blanc, patrons will be treated to an incredible view of the Eiffel Tower while enjoying Michelin-worthy cuisine. Guests who are lucky enough to book the Katara Suite have their own private rooftop garden complete with sweeping views of all the major landmarks in Paris.
