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

The Peninsula service ist still on top of all. The rooms are not the biggest in NYC, but you fell very good and the light and air-condition panel beside the bed is still the best. Also you can`t beat the location, the spa and the rooftop bar. I had breakfast included and it was great. The downside is that a... More

If you are in NYC and looking for a unique place to have a drink then go to the rooftop at The Peninsula. The view is to die for. You need to get there before happy hour starts or you won't get a seat or get waited on. It is always crowded but well worth the effort.
