My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary in March 2015 and found it to be a great location for exploring Manhattan as it's so central to everything and right in midtown. The staff were very helpful and the rooms very well laid and spacious. The roof top bar is also very nice.

My wife and I just returned from a three night stay at the Peninsula New York. My wife and I have been loyal patrons of the Ritz Carlton for years, and wanted to try the Peninsula after hearing so many wonderful things about it and coming across an exceptional deal. The service was top notch. The staff had an incredibly... More

My husband and I try to make it to New York City every year. This year was the first time we stayed at The Peninsula. While many other NYC hotels are great, The Peninsula is above and beyond any we have stayed in customer service. Loved the turn down service. The only complaint I had is that the bathroom television... More

If you are looking for a quite spot to enjoy a late afternoon cocktail before dinner, consider the roof top lounge at the Peninsula. After a hectic day in the canyons of Manhattan, treat yourself to the hushed elegance and excellent bar nuts found at the top of the Peninsula Hotel. The drinks are not inexpensive (about $50 for two... More

Visited the rooftop bar. It was a beautiful place and the bar had amazing views. Cocktails and drinks were expensive at $30+ but that may be the norm for 5th Avenue. Would go again simply for the views.

Dear Harley S, Thank you for your mention and review of our roof-top bar and terrace, Salon de Ning. Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the panoramic views of Fifth Avenue along with a cocktail or two. We look forward to your next visit soon. Best regards, Jonathan H. Crook General Manager More

We stayed at the Peninsula on a weekend trip to New York to see Billy Joel. Being Asian, I had always known the Peninsula in Hong Kong to be a fantastic hotel, but did not know they had a hotel in New York. The service was impeccable and reminded me of the type of service one expects in 5 star... More

My husband and I went to New York for our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed at The Peninsula. We arrived early in the morning after a red-eye flight and we were given our room immediately.

Lovely stay. Treated like royalty whether dressed up for dinner or dressed down after a long walk. Room was beyond reproach. Spacious and clean. Fabulous bathroom with nice amenities. Food at Clement was divine, and an excellent deal for the pre theater menu. Really lovely pool. Great service from everyone. This place is sophisticated and elegant without being flashy.

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.
