History & Story
The Peninsula Hotels group has a unique identity among the world’s leading hotels. Established in 1928, we now operate prestigious luxury properties in eleven major cities. These include the flagship in Hong Kong, plus Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, New York, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Paris, Istanbul, Bangkok Manila and London, which will be opened on 12 September. Peninsula is a living legend, the name synonymous with luxurious comfort and impeccable service. We set our sights high and our standards higher, aiming always to delight our customers, and in many cases we are now serving the third generation of our loyal guests.
The company has been looking at opening a hotel in London for over 30 years – we finally found it on Hyde Park Corner nestled between 3 Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Green Park and Buckingham Palace Gardens
The Peninsula London is new built. Each room has been designed with the highest attention to detail to ensure a perfect Peninsula night’s sleep for every guest. Architect and Designer of Interiors, Peter Marino, has created a luxurious modern design maximizing on the natural light, using walnut woods, luxurious stone and showcasing the best of British craftmanship. The bathrooms have been designed using rare honey onyx stone sourced from Türkiye.

And at The Lobby, traditional Peninsula Afternoon Tea and globally inspired fare are served beneath soaring ceilings, and often accompanied by live music.
