I do not understand why it is ranked #87 in NYC. I personally think it is the best in NYC! I have stayed in numerous Peninsula hotels, Hong Kong, Beverly Hills, NYC, London, and found all to be excellent. The NYC location could not be better, right in the middle of 5th Avenue shopping, easy access to Broadway theaters, and... More

Our bathroom was a disgrace, badly stained. Carpets in room were very old and dirty. Other than that the hotel is well placed to explore New... More

Good hotel in a splendid position, with rooms a little bit too small for the price you pay. Service is decent, but in NYC service is never great I am afraid. Very good breakfast and breakfast area, lobby too small

I went to New York to celebrate my birthday so decided to treat myself to a stay at the Peninsula. My room was amazing and the bathroom incredible. Also free wifi which seems to be a rarity and so important for foreign travelers. The staff were all very accommodating and I felt like a VIP. I did a free yoga... More

Rooms were nicely furnished, tubs were large. TV in bathroom. Historic church view was nice. Very close to great shopping. Wife said Spa was her favorite of all the ones we have visited anywhere. Staff was very accommodating to my wife's vegetarian diet. However, lobby has been known to be filled with music that does not match the elegant ambience.... More

This was our second stay. The bell staff and concierge are top level. Disappointed that we did not get Am Express upgrade. Desk agent showed us to a junior suite that "was one of her favorites with a great view." Alas, no view at all. Our previous stay in a less expensive room had a great view and bath window.... More

Known for its world-renowned service and attention to detail, The Peninsula New York is the prestigious recipient of the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Awards.
