The best of NYC is before you... Central Park, shopping, restaurants- this hotel has a great location! We felt secure and welcome from the start of our check-in to check-out. The beds are comfortable and the room was extremely clean (thank you!) I would have given five stars BUT we could not have a shirt laundered/pressed because "we are too... More

We stayed here as part of corporate event just for one night. Attention to detail and courteous staff add to the historic charms of this hotel. Suite was very clean with continued attention to details and appointments as well as technology for maximum comfort of guests. Highly recommended if you are in town for luxurious shopping spree or Broadway theater... More

Our stay was flawless. Beautifully furnished and equipped room. Stellar, genuine and intuitive service. Great insight and advice from the concierge staff. Warm welcome at check in and at every return. I work in this field and if the management of this hotel taught a class, I would be their first student. Deserving of their 5 star/5 diamond status.

Our one week stay in The Peninsula was a special occassion to celebrate my 50th birthday. On arrival the reception staff identified from my passport that it was birthday and minutes after arriving to our room I was presented with a birthday cake. Our first room was a little dissappointing due to its location near to an air conditioning unit,... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel and I absolutely love it. One of the best locations ever, with minutes' walk to MoMA and high-end shopping destinations on 5th Avenue. Central Park isn't too remote either. Service is good for the most part. Room is spacious relative to other hotel rooms in Manhattan but probably not up to the expectations... More

We have just spent 4 days at the Peninsula New York and have had the most amazing stay despite encountering a couple of hiccups along the way.

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.
