I booked this hotel through Expedia and booked a suite. From the pictures the hotel looked really good and it did not disappoint when we arrived, the staff were all friendly and helpful and the suite was large and airy. It is located in the theater district and is within walking distance of Broadway etc. There are plenty of small... More

The Peninsula is clearly our favorite hotel in NYC and we have stayed at many hotels in Manhattan. It is centrally located in a great part of the city without the crowded touristy feel of hotels closer to Times Square or the theatre district. The Peninsula combines exceptional service without feeling stuffy. You feel pampered while staying at the Peninsula.... More

The public areas were the highlight: the restaurant (food,service and atmosphere) impeccable. The bar had a great atmosphere, cosy and welcoming in the winter; the pool with warm lighting and view over NYC was great and the yoga class in the gym just what we needed after a long flight. Perfect location, will be back!

Stayed here for 5 nights on my first trip to NYC. Loved the hotel, despite being in a fantastic location on 5th avenue with all its noise - the minute you stepped into the hotel it was calm and peaceful. We stayed in a Superior room which was still a large room and the room was serviced twice a day.... More

Hi, we stayed here in a superior room in July. The room was really comfy and clean. The only downside is that there was no view from the room but apart from that we had no issues with the room. We never ate at the restaurant as we like to eat out. The rooftop bar is really great, we used... More

The first thing I noticed was the exquisite flower arrangement in the lobby. Care has been taken to create a peaceful and visually appealing interior. The staff are eloquent, helpful without being condescending and eager to please. We were upgraded to an enormous room with a well appointed lounge area. The upgrade was not expected, which made the visit more... More

I stayed here with my husband and son for a work trip and while the hotel was certainly impressive, it was frustrating having a stroller. The side door (which was the way around the staircase) was usually locked and someone would have to come unlock it which got annoying after a few times in and out. That being said, the... More

I stayed with my wife at the Peninsula for a week this summer. The hotel is beautiful from outside and also from the inside, the lobby is small but full of luxury elements.

I traveled to NYC for a wedding and I have never stayed at the Peninsula before but now I will stay there whenever I return! The service was fantastic-every detail was perfect. The staff went above and beyond! I thought the room was spacious and well appointed. I cannot wait to return!

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.
