“Good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This was a lovely hotel with nice, clean rooms. Staff was very friendly and polite.
We enjoyed the spa facilities immensely. We only did 2 services because it is
so pricey. Rooftop bar was cool but very busy. We snagged a table by pure luck and enjoyed
martini ($24) and sushi. Food in the hotel is just ok.
There was very loud music on Saturday until about 2am from a wedding reception in the hotel.

Pretty satisfied with hotel.
Very traditional old english, but the rooms are well kept and up-to-date and contemporary.
The service is alright.
However room service is super expensive !
Well located, however no need for windows as they give onto a wall.

Wonderful experience! Clean and quiet rooms, friendly staff, unbelievable spa/sun deck, great food and awesome rooftop bar. It was the little things that made a big difference too--mini hand sanitizers in the room (nice to take out into the city with us and often replenished by the time we got back for the day), free bottled water to take with us, turndown service with a bucket of ice and my glasses and book next to the bed stand was a nice touch, and my husband bought flowers and there was a vase in the room to use too! We got a summer deal through Expedia--3 nights and 1 airline ticket (husband coming in from different city on business) for $1200. This included free internet, $50 hotel credit and 3 days of breakfast (up to $90 each day). Wonderful. And the rooftop bar was splendid--nice bartenders, great ambiance and terrific view of the city. It'll be hard to stay anywhere else in Manhattan, but I'll always check the Peninsula first to see if we can afford again. A perfect weekend of sightseeing and relaxation.

From my perspective The Peninsula is the finest place to stay in New York City. This hotel is a textbook on understated elegance. The lobby and public areas are not large in scale, but instead are intimate, cozy, and in very good taste. The staff is genuinely concerned about guests and is highly professional. The rooms are tasteful and immaculate. These factors combine with two other characteristics of the Peninsula to make the best in Manhattan: first, the unique location on Fifth Avenue in the middle of the shopping district surrounded by the top name stores and Rockefeller Center; and second, a concierge staff with fantastic connections and knowledge of Manhattan who can arrange almost anything with speed and flair.

Room Tip: Use the concierge service to locate great restaurantes and other attractions

Great New York hotel experience! Service is way beyond good.

Friendly staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and it home.

Yes it's pricy but if you want the best this is a place to be. Concierge was especially helpful in making dining plans.

Siohban on reception was lovely, so helpful.
The room (upgraded) was perfect, quietly luxiourious and perfectly appointed.Bed and pillows heavenly.
Rooftop bar and pool excellent with breathtaking views
Well worth the price - you wont be disappointed.

We stayed in the Peninsula for the first week in August with our family (3 kids) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our interconnecting rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The rooms were very quiet and the beds extra-comfy. The staff was attentive and very polite. All our extra requests were handled professionally and with a smile. The breakfast was delicious, the spa was also splendid and the kids liked the pool. It was nice to escape the summer heat and hassle to the tranquil pool room and the sundeck in the afternoon.

Room Tip: Ask for a interconnecting rooms when travelling with family.
