Good location, old but nice rooms just enough for overnight sleep after long trips in NYU and it's numerous museums. Good accessibility with taxis and metro. Price is also reasonable if you plan in advance.

Peninsula Hotel is located in the center of Manhattan, NYC, around the corner of 5th Avenue. A lot of landmarks are only feet away including MOMA, Rockefeller Center, Broadway theaters and Central Park. This hotel provides luxurious experience. You can enjoy indoor swimming pools, central park and the entire Manhattan on the roof. There are definitely more guests than THE... More

The hotel was probably great in 1950 or 1960 but it's a little tired. Bed was clean (no bugs I check), water pressure and temp fine, air conditioner working, towels full size. Yes the rooms are New York City size, and I wouldn't walk on the carpet without socks on. Bathroom was pretty dirty but nothing housekeeping could clean. And... More

I stayed here with my wife for the first of my private NYC travels. This review does not allow registering stays before 2013, whereas our stay was at 2010. The hotel is very old, so that we were scared whether there could be no pest control, incl. the room area, and could not sleep well initial night. Then we were... More

I have stayed in this hotel 5 times in the last 7 months because 1) it's a fantastic location...I take Amtrak up to NY from Va and it is right across the street...no taxi needed! 2) it sits right on top of the Downtown 1, 2, and 3 trains, one block from the Uptown 1, 2, and 3 trains, and... More

Reading the nasty reviews before we got to this hotel had me a little nervous. I was pleasantly surprised however. We were able to get into our room a little early and had great service throughout our stay (aside from the incredibly eager housekeeper on the morning we checked out). The room wasn't huge but it had everything we needed.... More

Very tired and dated hotel. The entire hotel needs major renovations, dirty carpets, bathrooms with very little water pressure, even the staff seem tired and unhelpful. The only plus is the location opposite Penn station.
