I stayed at the Peninsula over the St. Patrick's Day parade and it was a wonderful experience. Can't go wrong with this hotel especially if you can get a good deal. Centrally located with good some rooms.

I arrived on a Friday afternoon, and was shown to my room: a lovely room with 2 queen beds (as requested). Very clean and well-decorated. A nice sized bathroom. I went downstairs and had a lovely lunch in the Gotham Bar. The lady who waited on me was absolutely delightful. I had a club sandwich, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc,... More

There are many good hotels in New York and some great hotels, none however can provide the atmosphere of pure sophistication, luxury and class that Peninsula does. Perfectly comfortable rooms with great beds and all amenities you want from a top hotel. Service is perfect from the moment you arrive. Fabulous restaurant with a great wine list and experienced staff... More

Very nice property. I made the mistake of choosing a room with an internal view into a 'courtyard'. Its more a dingy light well between buildings without much light. The room itself was very pleasant and a great size. Decor starting to show its age but more than compensated by the hotels location and room size. Breakfast extraordinarily expensive but... More

I loved the little GL area here. The roof was too crowded, so we had drinks downstairs. I am really glad that we did. I LOVE the decor of this little bar area and the staff were so fantastic - totally professional in a very old school sort of way. I will be back in here again for sure.

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.
