The 200-room Peninsula Paris, located in the 16th arrondissement near the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees, is one of the city's top luxury hotels and rivaled only by a handful of competitors (Shangri-La Paris and Hotel Plaza Athenee among them). It reopened in 2014 after a four-year, multi-million dollar restoration, and the historic property offers guests opulent interiors and a high level of service made possible by the 600 staff members. Several dining and drinking options include a rooftop restaurant with beautiful panoramic views over the city, a sumptuous lobby bar with outdoor terrace, and a lavish Cantonese restaurant. The hotel also has a full-service underground spa with lovely pool and two fitness rooms. Rooms, which are some of the largest in Paris, feature elegant decor in neutral tones and a bounty of high-tech details, including tablet-operated lights, temperature, and valet calls (though the controls may strike some as too complicated).
