Whenever I'm traveling, I bring a number of devices and all their related charges, often creating a mess of cords in my room. At the Peninsula New York, while I was out for the day, housekeeping tied up the cords neatly with a pretty gray ribbon. A small, somewhat random, touch, but that's the kind of next-level service and attention-to-detail... More

We stayed at The Peninsula New York from Dec 12 -15, 2014. As usual, the room was relaxing and comfortable, even adequately sized, by Manhattan standards. Clements restaurant was interesting, but does not have a very diverse menu, meaning not many plain type of dishes. Our only problem was the one day we didn't get out of the room until... More

I've stayed here maybe 10 times. There are several good reasons for that 1) great location at 55 and 5th so at the door step of Bergdorf et al for those inclined to shop 2) fabulous roof top bar which has a great vibe for this part of town (only 75pc suits) ...although as expected, seating is coupled with attitude,...

When I come to NYC I like to try new places to stay. If you read my reviews, you'll see I've stayed at The London NYC, Trump, Mandarin Oriental, Essex House, St. Regis, etc... I've loved most of them and would return to most of them. Not this one! The room rate is ridiculous for what you get. The tv... More

This is a beautiful hotel, great location with easy access to most attractions. Great rooftop pool and lounge. Two wonderful restaurants, one casual lobby restaurant and another more formal one. If you don't like either option there are plenty of choices within walking distance. A few blocks walk to Times Square, a few blocks to Central park. Rooms are nicely... More

We have stayed at many of the fine hotels around NYC with our two boys (they are well traveled) and this has quickly become our favorite. The location is great, rooms are superb and quite large for NYC standards, and the bathroom is modern and immaculate. What has impressed us the most, each and every visit is the staff. From... More

Stayed for the second time at the Peninsula. I was quite impressed by the first time but I was amazed by the second time. The rooms, lobby, restaurants, rooftop bar are top notch. The service provided by the hotel is impeccable. Nothing you ask for is to much and everything happens right away. As far as the location goes it... More

I love The Peninsula New York and was recently there for an evening in Manhattan and staying at The Peninsula New York is like a home away from home - an incredible property in the best part of town and with the most wonderful team working there - from the doormen to the front desk (Samir is the best) to...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
