HSH's involvement in hotels dates back to 1866, when its predecessor, The Hong Kong Hotel Company, owned some of the finest hotels in China as well as in Hong Kong and operated what was, in effect, the first major hotel group in the Far East.

The Peninsula Group today comprises The Peninsula and The Kowloon Hotel in Hong Kong, The Peninsula Manila, The Palace Hotel Beijing, The Peninsula New York, The Peninsula Beverly Hills and The Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club at Carmel. The 370-room Peninsula Bangkok is scheduled to open in 1998, whilst hotels in Sydney, Jakarta and Hanoi, part of multi-use complexes, are scheduled to open in 1999.

The Group's hotels are represented by 9 regional sales offices in London, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Tokyo, Singapore and Sydney, as well as The Peninsula Group Reservations Centre in Hong Kong.

In addition, The Peninsula Hong Kong, The Peninsula Manila, The Palace Hotel Beijing, The Peninsula New York and The Peninsula Beverly Hills and Quail Lodge are all members of the Leading Hotels of the World and Preferred Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, while The Kowloon Hotel in Hong Kong is a member of Steigenberger Reservations Service, and UTELL International represents all hotels.
