We stayed at the Peninsula for our quick trip to New York. I have to say the location is very convenient (3 min walk from the E line) with almost everything within walking distant. Our plan was to arrive early and leave our luggage at the hotel; instead, the front desk not only upgraded us but also found a room for our extremely early check-in (around 11:00 am). We were able to walk to the New York public library and buy our broadway tickets, then returned the hotel for a quick swim before the show.
I used the female spa, the lady who helped me get acclimated was very nice. The gym was not too busy that day and I was the only one in the steam room. The individual shower room was great, water was hot enough with good pressure from both rain shower and hand-held shower heads.
We went to their new restaurant Clement for breakfast. The service was impeccable-our waiters paid attention to every single detail. For example, I was shaking my teapot because I thought the tea pouch was not completely soaked causing a lighter tea taste. Within a minute, our waiter came to me and asked if I would like a stronger pot and replaced the whole set.
There are also other examples demonstrating how this hotel pays attention to every possible detail-even the trivial ones. There are only a couple of things they can modify:
1. No bath salt nor body scrub thingy in the bathroom. I am not sure if this is a " upon request" thing.
2. I need to request for hot water because there is no water kettle in the room. I waited for about 20 minutes and no one came so I gave up.
I will return for sure. Now I am even thinking about booking the Peninsula Tokyo for my upcoming trip in Tokyo!
