I booked a Fri and Sat Night stay at the Peninsula for my wife and my 1st wedding Anniversary. To simply put it, the Peninsula exceeded our expectations of luxury, service, and relaxation. Check-in was fine, it is a nice touch for the front desk attendant to peronally escort you to your room, give you a brief tour, and inquire of any other needs. The Deluxe king we booked was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The kingsize bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows and soft comforter.
The bathroom was very large, marble everything, the highlight is the tv/radio controls for use while in the bathtub. The deep soaking tub and seperate shower have excellent water pressure and space for two.
On Saturday night we went to the lobby for the Jazz at the Pen. The jazz quartet was very good, able to read and play off of the crowd.
The spa and finess center were top notch. The pool is very nice and sun filled, there is an outdoor sundeck, but it can get quite windy 20 floors up.
Room service, housekeeping, and the front desk staff are very efficient and accomodating.
Our weekend at the Peninsula Hotel was arguably the best we have ever had, aside from our honeymoon.
