We stayed here for New Years Eve with our two children, ages 8 and 9. When we arrived, we were able to receive a noon check in (due to booking through Amex Platinum) and a late 4 pm check out the next day. The staff could not have been friendlier to our children. When we arrived they gave them snow... More

Stayed here during a quick holiday trip to New York. Location...perfect...service....perfect...food...perfect! The Christmas decorations were beautiful. Also loved the smaller feel of the hotel compared to The Waldof. Friends stayed there and the experience was far less personalized...Ene though the peninsula had a boutique feel it had all the amenities of a huge hotel. Breakfast was lovely every morning and...

After a 12 hour flight we checked in early (7 am) at the peninsula, i was expecting to be told that the room will not be ready till 14.00 . The receptionist told me that the room was ready and that i could go rest after my long journey, this was enough to remind me that the peninsula standards are... More

Considering the prices this hotel charges (around $1000 per night) you'd expect something truly great. I had very high hopes as I grew up in LA and the Penninsula there is considered the creme de la creme. Upon entering this hotel I immediately knew it was going to disappoint me. Service is weird and somewhat unfriendly - and a little... More

I have stayed in many hotels in New York. My favourite prior to the Peninsula would be the Palace Hotel, but where I stay varies on rates as well as business needs. I always like to stay somewhere that allows me to run in Central Park, which The Peninsula does. Just to give you a rundown of the hotel: Location... More

Nice service, nice room. A little bit expensive but you will have a great time with the hotel. The diner next to the hotel named Michael? had a great breakfast too. The location is good too. I went for shopping for my kid's clothing just before leaving for the flight.

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.

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.
