We just stayed last week at the Peninsula like every year for this time of the year. This is an oasis of tranquility in the middle of Manhattan. Very well located in the corner of 55th and 5th avenue. Service is 5 stars, room service is outstanding. Rooms are very clean and amenities are by Oscar de la Renta, to... More

The Peninsula in New York City is a luxury offering and although quite pricey offers the best of what a first class establishment can provide. Rooms are comfortable although a bit on the small side with drawer space badly distrubuted in three or four different places. Bathroom amentities are plentiful and replenished daily. The service is impeccable. Breakfast at the... More

Spent just a night! From the hair salon to the octopus at the restaurant to the lovely rooftop bar-truly a fabulous hotel! And the location is just a cherry on top-right next the 5th avenue. Lots of shops and brilliant restaurants within a 300m radius. One of my favourites in the city :)

I love this place. The location is fantastic, service always great, and rooms roomy and, most importantly, warmly designed. You really feel like "wow, this would be a cool bedroom." As opposed to the Palace, object of my current ire (!), which can often suffer from surly service and, in my opinion, large but cold - almost indifferent - rooms.... More

It's difficult for a hotel of this stature to live up to its reputation, but The Peninsula New York most certainly did. While the rooms eschew the modern, trendy style that competitors like the Mandarin embrace, the result is a peaceful oasis in the heart of a vibrant, if at times chaotic, city. Our room was a Grand Luxe room,... More

I have stayed in the Peninsula in Hong Kong and found it to be a wonderful hotel. Therefore when making a trip to New York to pick up my elderly parents disembarking from a cruise, I chose the Peninsula New York. In retrospect this was a fortuitous choice. The quiet, dignified welcome; the quick check-in was just what I expected.... More
