This is probably the best hotel in NY if you have kids. NY is a very stressy place and kids get very tired, so it is good to use the hotel spa and pool. Everybody in the Peninsula is very attencious and kind and we were very well treated during our stay there. It is expensive as it is everything... More

Still one of the best located hotels in the city. If you like boutique style hotels, this is one of the best in New York. I stayed here a few times when it first opened and everything was just great...even the service. Unfortunately, although it's still a fine hotel, the service is not up to par considering the usually high... More

Peninsula Hotel is located in the center of Manhattan, NYC, around the corner of 5th Avenue. A lot of landmarks are only feet away including MOMA, Rockefeller Center, Broadway theaters and Central Park. This hotel provides luxurious experience. You can enjoy indoor swimming pools, central park and the entire Manhattan on the roof. There are definitely more guests than THE... More

Visited on the 14th July 2014. This review gets 2 stars as the bar area (Clement bar) was very nice and the hotel looked fantastic. Although the football was showing and it was a very sticky/humid evening, the atmosphere was very good. However, the bar staff were some of the rudest I’ve ever come across. This was not only my...

The service for this $1000/night hotel was atrocious. When I got to the hotel, the bellman just snarled at me and took my luggage from the trunk begrudgingly . He didn't even greet me. Usually you would expect "hello sir are you checking in" I arrived at the hotel at around 8pm on Sat 19 July . I then had... More

I stayed at The Peninsula while in Manhattan for a business trip a couple weeks back and was blown away. Having stayed in Manhattan before, I'm used to extremely small rooms and not much in terms of amenities. I couldn't believe how beautiful (and big) the room was! Very spacious with a huge bathroom. Walk-in, marble shower, separate toilet area,... More
