I had business in New York City on the Friday leading into the Memorial day weekend. I thought it would be an excellent opportunity for a quick family excursion. I spent a couple of days researching the Manhattan area for the best 'luxury value' and ran across the Peninsula. Relative to other similar status properties in the area, the Peninsula... More

I usually stay at the Waldorf when in NY but thought Id try a change. I am so glad I did. This hotel is wonderful. I had a truly fantastic stay there. The staff are so good at their jobs its kind of shocking. We ordered a car to collect us from JFK and they must have radioed to teh... More

My family and I stayed here for two days earlier this month. To be fair we had a substantial discounted rate but I swear after our time there we would pay full price to go back. The place is just first class all the way around. Every one was so nice - especially to our kids- the rooms are amazing... More

$800 a night - why? Not quite 5-star service (name checking when coming back, from somebody I'd spoken to at least twice before), plus only two people on reception when we arrived (11pm) so took over 10 minutes to check in. Wake up, whoever runs these joints - if "ultra-luxury" is your by-word, then a lot of ultra-changing is needed.

My first mother daughter trip to NYC was made extra special by the Penninsula Hotel. The room was quaint and clean. The staff was consistently pleasant, sincere and helpful. Fredrick, the concierge, was a particular stand out. The food at Fives, their restaurant, was average. The location was amazing, walking distance to many places of interest.

Just returned from a four day trip...everything was great. The service from everyone--lobby, front desk, restaurant, etc. was excellent (everyone was so nice). The rooms were inviting and clean. The location is the best in Manhattan. In general, the total atmosphere of the hotel added immensely to our enjoyment of the trip. I'll be staying there again when I return.

My wife and I recently spent a long weekend in New York and stayed here largely based upon good experiences we have had at the Peninsula Chicago. We were disappointed. Compared to the grand hotel feel of the Chicago hotel, the common areas of this property are small and unexceptional. As Amex platinum card holders, we have become accustomed to... More

We have stayed at the Peninsula many times over the last ten years. The quality of the service has always been top notch. We were disappointed from the time we arrived on this visit. We arrived around midnight, as was expected. There was neither doorman nor bellman at the front door when we arrived. We hauled our own bags up... More

I loved this hotel. Never mind the somewhat outdated rooms - phone in the toilet - who does that these days? ..and the old Sony over the bathtub. Free internet throughout the hotel is a plus, a rare one at that in NYC. Location is unbeatable and the gym/pool/spa are really New York's finest. Workout while watching the city move,... More

Great place to be based if you want to shop-just a stone's throw from Saks, Barney's, Henry Bendell, Zara, Tiffanys and Bergdorf. Concierge-The concierge had some... More

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.
