The Peninsula is expensive but it's a fabulous first-class hotel and worth the price for a splurge. Sometimes they run specials, which are worth asking about. The Spa is just wonderful - had an excellent massage in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere.

Stayed there just before Christmas - 3rd time in 6 months. Beautifully decorated, great location. Room overlooked 5th Avenue. Love their afternoon tea. Concierge can work wonders (We have always used Taz). Strongly recommend this as a great base to explore NY from.

We've had excellent experiences at Peninsula Hotels in Beverly Hills, Shanghai and Hong Kong, so we had very high expectations for The Peninsula New York. As expected, the hotel's service, accommodations and dining were EXCELLENT. During our 4 night stay, we enjoyed cocktails and meals in all the hotel's restaurants and bars. Food and service were exceptional. The gym and... More

I travel to New York frequently, and have stayed at this Hotel many times. I always ask myself, why do I have to stay in such an expensive hotel and what do I get in return. In general, my expectations with these more expensive premium hotels include friendly helpful staff, great location, beautiful surrounding, large room, turn down service and... More

Arrived here late on New Years Eve after our airline lost one of our suit cases causing us to miss our pre booked gala dinner at the hotel and making us waste a huge amount of time at Terminal 7, JFK airport.

I went to the Peninsula for brunch on 01/04; the overall experience was superb. Staff were great; intuitive and attentive. The food was very good and off-menu choices not a problem. Location at 55th and 5th classy. If you are checking out possibilities for brunch in New York you will not be disappointed with the Peninsula!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
