The Peninsula Hotels

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Peninsula Hotels is a chain of luxury hotels operated by Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels. Founded by the Kadoorie family, the first hotel opened in 1928 and now stands as the oldest in Hong Kong.[1]

History

Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited was incorporated in 1866. The company became engaged in real estate, acquiring land properties, and opened The Peninsula Hong Kong in Tsim Sha Tsui in 1928. The Peninsula Hong Kong holds several world records for placing the largest single orders for fleets of Rolls-Royce cars in the world.

The Peninsula Manila in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, opened in 1976. After a decade, the opening was followed by The Peninsula New York in 1988, as the company ventured into the American market. This was followed by a 1989 opening in Beijing and a 1991 opening in Beverly Hills.

Awards and achievements

The Peninsula Bangkok was named the #1 hotel in Asia and #7 worldwide by magazine Travel + Leisure in August 2010.[2][3] The Peninsula Tokyo was voted the second best hotel by the same magazine in 2012 in its annual "The 500 Best Hotels List".

Controversy

The Peninsula Hotels have been criticised by campaigners[7] for the continued use of eggs from battery-caged hens across their hotel locations. A large number of the hotel group’s competitors including Mandarin Oriental, Hyatt and Intercontinental have made commitments to use only cage-free eggs by 2025.[8][9][10]

Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels responded to the criticism by releasing a commitment to use only cage-free eggs, that will be achieved by 2025.[11]
