The Peninsula Chicago’s rich international corporate history dating back to the 1920s makes it different from other Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotels. Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited — which owns The Peninsulas in Chicago, New York, Tokyo, Shanghai and Beverly Hills, to name a few — was one of the first companies listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
The Peninsula Chicago opened in 2001. You can see the company’s rich history today in the hotel’s fleet of luxury Rolls-Royce vehicles, the trademark car of choice for The Peninsula Hotels group. In 1970, the group placed the largest order in history at the time for eight Brewster-green Silver Shadows, taking largess to a whole new level. Most recently, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel added the Mini Cooper S Clubman to its fleet, a much niftier, but equally stylish way to zip around the streets of Chicago — and a surefire way to let everyone know you’re staying at The Peninsula Chicago.
