Summary: This hotel is going to set you back a whole lot of pennies, and while it is difficult to justify spending so much, the experience itself was fantastic. Their fitness center is amazing, their rooftop bar and restaurants are great, the rooms fairly sized and luxurious, and service is spectacular. Room: I was in a standard King room. While... More

When we decided for the Peninsula we had been unsure about the standard of one of the older luxury hotels in NYC. Luckely we made the right decision: the hotel not just has the perfect location right on 5th Avenue and close to Central park. But more important the service level remembered us of Asian hotels in Bangkok or Singapore.... More

The Peninsula is our retreat in mid-town Manhattan. The staff are friendly and accomodating, the rooms are grand but not fussy or glitzy. We enjoy eating in the restaurants after a busy day of museums and/or shopping. The lobby bar offers good food and occupies a pleasant nook away from the busy lobby. Do have breakfast in the dining room... More

Spent the night here with my husband and did some NY sightseeing/shopping. We weren't in the hotel much, but when we were it just couldn't have been better. The rooms are immaculate, modern, clean, lovely. The bathrooms are HUGE and well-fitted. The staff; from check in to check out, were on it. No detail was overlooked. I utilized the spa... More

Finally, my quest is over. In my travels I've stayed in many 5 star hotels only to walk away wondering "Is this it"? Well now I have a bench mark to compare other 5 stars to. This hotel has it all. Top notch location, housekeeping, customer service, cleanliness. The staff were pleasant, and always addressed me by name....not sure how... More

I have recently stayed at the Peninsula 1 night for business and all I can say is it is worth every penny. Great Hotel, Great service and Great location. The room that I have stayed was small but enough for 1 nights business stay,

I am here as I write this. Location is great, the staff is friendly and welcoming. I realize I got a great discount rate for a "superior" room but superior to what I don't know. Room is small, with an ugly "courtyard view" and you can hear the humming of generators or fans or something. O.K. discounted rate, so room... More

The Peninsula Hotel remains my favorite city hotel of anywhere we've stayed. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was especially luxurious (large bathtub w television, separate shower, 2 sinks, etc.) Despite the fact that the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade was going on right outside our window, the sound did not travel in as to disturb us. The... More

Really nice hotel, great room service, very comfy bed, nice welcome, good range of TV channels, maid service excellent. We really liked the integrated technology (controls lights, air, TV, privacy, make-up-room all from one panel). There are a lot of business people at the hotel but it was never a problem for us. Staff were always helpful and polite. The... More
