Our Bags are Packed

600_treasures_1-4Hong Kong-based Peninsula Hotels has just announced that it will open a new property in Paris sometime in 2012. The 200-room property will be located on the Avenue Kleber in a building that was originally constructed and opened in 1908 as the Majestic Hotel (above) and is currently used as the Centre International de Conferences by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The property was recently bought (and subsequently sold) by Qataris for some €450M and is one of many grand — though costly to maintain — Parisian edifices the government is trying to unload to deep-pocketed investors. Bon chance!
