Our weekend stay was very pleasant. We were able to check in by noon and were given an upgrade to a room overlooking 5th Ave. The bathroom was huge and there was plenty of closet space. We used the gym and pool, which were lovely. The hotel is in a very convenient location for shopping and Central Park. It is... More

A great location just off 5th avenue, quite a low key stylish hotel. Comp wi-fi and impeccable service with well appointed rooms. We had massages in the spa which was fantastic and relaxing, regarded as one of the best spas in New York.

Great location: if you are traveling with a long shopping list. Professional concierge: we asked the info about the Woodbury outlets, after 5 mins, we received one envelop with the store map in outlets, the bus station and a full bus timetables. Awesome! The suite size is a bit smaller than what we expected, however, not a big issue. The... More

Went here on Saturday 29th March for dinner with my girlfriend as we were in New York on holiday. Had a few drinks in the rooftop bar, where the drinks were great and the staff unbelievably nice and attentive. In the restuarant the waiters were very friendly, which is nice being in such an expensive and quite frankly posh place.... More

The ever present friendly professional staff were as attentive as you would think in a swanky place like this. The room as small as ours was, was clean but we did find the pervious guests discarded bubblegum in our drinking glasses. Great linens and no bedspreads of course! Loved the radio controls in the bathtub but we didn't care for... More

Do not stay in this hotel if you have to stay somewhere unpleasant afterwards. We celebrated our second wedding anniversary at this hotel. We stayed in a suite that had glorious views but no street noise. Everything about our stay was amazing. Possibly the best two nights of our USA trip. We loved our private tour of NYC in the... More

I stay at the Peninsula whenever I'm in NY. It is one of the best hotels I have ever staid at. Pricey but worth it. Service is amazing, and you absolutely can not hear the street no matter what floor you are on. Black granite counter tops, and linens to die for. Just a perfect amazing hotel.

This hotel delivers a great experience - like the other Peninsula hotels. Location on 5th a few blocks from Central Park is perfect for business trips and convenient if you are looking for a midtown/uptown New York experience.
