This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from all-new The Peninsula Paris, but don’t let “new” fool you—The Peninsula Paris is located in a late 19th century classic Haussmanian building, which first opened as one of Paris’ most luxurious “grands hotels” in 1908. It’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 day….spectacular at night. Like my other favorite hotel, the Peninsula in Shanghai, the Paris version does it right.Joining Peter Greenberg this week are Pauline Wong Lemasson from the American Library in Paris, with the secrets of the city of light and the story of this remarkable library; Alec Lobrano, author of Hungry for Paris, who describes surprise food finds in Paris (great dim sum?) and gives his advice for making the most of a trip to Paris. Isabelle Garnerone, founder and editor of Edgar, describes the palace hotels of Paris. Also joining us is Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, who shares his predictions on next year’s exciting U.S. travel trends. All of this and more on this week’s broadcast of Peter Greenberg Worldwide from the Peninsula Paris.
