You know you've entered a certain level of luxury when your room has a nail varnish dryer among its five-star accroutrements.
The newly-opened Peninsula Paris offers this kind of detail and much more after a six-year transformation from 1908 Hausmann hotel into glamorous urban retreat. Soaring ceilings, bespoke chandeliers, Belle Epoque detailing, and some of the finest suites in the City of Lights set the scene for a grand romance.
The hotel is also imbued with cultural significance – George Gershwin wrote An American in Paris here and The Paris Peace Accords were signed in what is now Le Bar Kléber. For a special occasion stay you have to book one of the 34 sumptuous suites, five with their own rooftop garden and views over Paris.
Couples will love: The palatial style surrounds, strong sense of history and perfect location in the 16th arrondissement.
