We stayed at the Peninsula in NY for 3 days, as a short break from a long business trip. I had my 3 year old daughter with me and was worried she would run riot in such a grand hotel. Well, she didn't simply because the staff were fantastic, friendly and most of all extremely professional. The rooms are spacious,... More

We stayed at the Peninsula Hong Kong in October, and my husband and I agree it is probably one of the top three hotels in the world for us (George V, Paris and Wynn Tower Suites, Las Vegas being the other two) so we had exceptionally high expectations. This is now our favourite New York Hotel. The service was impeccable.... More

We stayed in the Peninsula hotel for 3 nights in December, and loved it! The service was wonderful and a very high standard, food was also excellent. The location is outstanding, in the centre of everything [Central Park/ 5th Avenue/ Rockefeller Centre/ Times Square]. The design of the hotel is very understated glamour, and you might expect more for your... More

I saw the most celebrities at the Peninsula than I have ever seen in my life. Great rooms,amazing restaurant (where I ate next to John Travolta) the food was amazing! My dad went to the restroom next to Brad Pitt. Jokes apart, the hotel is gorgeous and it's definitely worth the spend!

After a long journey from london, they have a pool you can relax in until 9:30pm(the view is amazing from the pool...) not to mention a sauna and steam facility. We had a superior room which was great, the view was just other rooms, but we didn't really need a view. It was a wonderful hotel, brilliant staff and the... More

To me this is one of the icon hotels , with a perfect location , I like the style and feel. Rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable , but avoid the smaller room categories. Room service and maid service has worked excellent when I have stayed there. Unfortunately the service level is sub par from doormen , bellhops and front... More

This is my kind of hotel - lovely, old school opulent without being garish, renovated with quietly sexy rooms - a place for grown -ups, not club kids. I got a decent rate on jetsetter.com - otherwise the Peninsula is out of my price range. I have also stayed at the Peninsula Beverly Hills and I prefer the staff here... More

Stayed for 5 nights in a deluxe room facing 5th/55th. Overall the room was very quiet, well appointed, good bed, amazing bathroom and comfortable space - if you are travelling alone. However, with 2 people in the room, it can become a little crowded as the room sizes are not that big. The bathroom is big - well appointed, but... More
