“Fabulous Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

We always try and stay in this fabulous hotel whenever we are in New York.The rooms are beautiful and extremely comfortable.We love the spa especially the pool and roof terrace.
I recommend the "Manhattan Retreat" package which includes a fantastic breakfast and hotel credit.

The hotel is a few blocks away from Central Park - really ideal to explore Manhattan. There is an underground station close to the hotel. The room service was good. We got an upgrade at check in and the rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We did visit the spa but it wasn't that great.

The hotel was beautiful and the room spotless and huge! The bathroom was a girl's dream (the size of most double bedrooms in the UK). Lots of facilities both in the room and the hotel itslef, including the fabulous gym and swimming pool on the roof terrace. (And the cocktail bar on the roof is not to be missed). The staff were extremely helpful and polite, especially at breakfast (which was probably one of the best continental breakfasts ever) and the doorman was brilliant. Well placed for the best NY stores (Tiffany's etc) and central park. An abosolute gem. Short walk to Times Square but away from the noise. Had a fantastic time there. This hotel is stunning and the staff very caring.

I normally get out of Montreal each June during the Formula 1 Grand Prix Festivities and usually go to NYC where it is quieter than Montreal - well at least that week end.

I have stayed at other Peninsula locations, but this was my first time at the NYC location.

If you are a tourist looking to shop and have easy access to Central Park to enjoy a little jog, then this hotel has a perfect location. You may not get the best views in the city, but with so many things to do nearby, who cares? The hotel is an old property that has been refurbished. The hotel has a very different design than, for example, the Four Seasons nearby where I have stayed once. The Peninsula's layout has a bit of quirks but it adds to the charm of an older property. If you enjoy modern/design hotels, you probably would not like it there. From that standpoint, the Peninsula in Chicago is better, but it does not have that old world charm that the NYC location has. The bed was very comfortable. You think that should be a given in that hotel class, but I recently stayed at a Ritz and I had to have the mattress changed (granted, the Peninsula is above the Ritz). Good gym, but I must admit I have seen better. I did not try the room service.

Did the hotel meet my expectations? Yes. Would I come back again? Certainly, but with so many interesting luxury hotels in New York, I believe that I may try a few more hotels before coming back.

The service was great, which is really the distinguishing feature of Peninsula hotels beyond the sheer luxury.

How did I miss this hotel during my previous visits to New York...??? Based on the reviews of the service and location , and visit by a relative there I thought I will try it out . This hotel is by far exceeded my expectations, every thing has been taken care of or thought off. All amenities in the rooms have been provided, the professionalism of all the hotel staff is by far superb. They take careof you as if you are the only guest there, non stop greeting by all hotel staff starting at the hotel main door all the way to the room. They make you feel special and they make sure they are doing a good job. Room service is fast , and to my surprise it has been always delicious especially the in room breakfast. Words aren't enough to describe our stay there you have to go and stay there to believe.
I would like to thank Mr. Sameer for taking excellent care of us and he was always there for any questions or queries. Also to my surprise it's the only hotel I have ever been to where all the concierges carry the Les Clefs d'Or (The Golden Keys) and there were 7 of them. Wow how awesome is that, I doubt it you will ever be lost in New York. I would like to thank every single employee in the hotel for making our stay wonderful and definitely we will see you soon again.

Impeccable service and beautiful spa with sunroof deck though found the therapist too pushy to sell you additional massage or products
Used to have in the past fruits or sweats in the room as well as newspaper and had to ask for it this time
what is missing in Peninsula is a loyalty program I have stayed in several Peninsula Chicago, Hong Kong and New York and they don't recognize loyal customers with special attention or touch which it is a pity and put at competitive disavantage vs other chains like Jumeirah
