Our family spent three great nights at The Peninsula over Valentine's Day weekend. Everything about our stay was fantastic. The service was top-notch, the staff was warm and accommodating and the food - both in the bars and the dining room - was great. Our daughters, ages 8 and 6, were both welcomed and entertained throughout our entire stay. We... More

The Peninsula New York is a fine establishment. Access off of 5th/55th is excellent. The food was delicious and the service was five star. The rooms were exactly what one would expect from a hotel in this class. Great rooftop views from Salon de Ning.

We've always been pleased with the Peninsula hotel chain, and our stay in New York was no exception. We had purchased a weekend in a suite from the Peninsula as a charity auction item, and the Peninsula could not have been more gracious when we redeemed our purchase. We were given a large suite (larger than many NYC flats) complete... More

I had a beautiful corner room but the bed was lumpy and I had the feeling that this hotel has had its day. It was a lovely way to spend Valentine's Day but I mainly booked for the pool which was under renovation and should have likely stayed elsewhere.

Dear Seeitwhileyoucan, Thank you for your feedback on TripAdvisor. While we realize our hotel's style is not for everyone, we trust it did not distract from your stay with us. We hope you will try our property again in the near future when final maintenance repairs have been made to our pool by the end of March. Best regards, Jonathan... More

This hotel, by reputation one of the most high end hotels in the city (and priced accordingly) failed to impress. Bathroom - What's the story with the handheld shower? Can the Peninsula not afford to install an actual shower head? Has no one informed management that in 2015, many people's preferred form of bathing is done vertically? The TV -... More

Excellent location for shopping, moving about the city. I like you can shop on 5th Avenue go back and drop your items off before heading out again. Lots of great restaurants nearby. The quality of the bed, the pillows, and sheets make for fantastic sleep. TV has lots of channel selection and easy to navigate. Best: restaurant. Food and service... More

We stayed multiple times at this hotel as its 5th avenue location next to Central Park and everything just good inside provides safe choice for a luxury addicted non US traveller. Rooms and suites were good even noisy either from 5th ave or inner side. Ok bars, including popular open roof top Vong. Media industry darling Michael's restaurant next door..... More

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.

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.
