We stayed at the Peninsula during the Thanksgiving weekend. We were pleased to experience a very efficient welcome service upon arrival. We were greeted whilst getting out from the taxi by a porter and then by name a minute later at the front desk- very sleek use of radio, we thought. Our rooms were ready so we didn't have to...

Take advantage of the Spa at the hotel as it is a special Zen Den. Relaxation rooms, sauna, ice baths, pool, luxury robes and towels, lunch at the pool, drinks on the roof. Great Massages and née snacks to keep you on your toes.

There's no denying that the Peninsula is in many ways a lovely and top-notch hotel. The rooms and suites are beautifully appointed, the lobby is beautiful, the usual amenities are available. But we had a rather troubling set of experiences here and will not come back. For example, the service at the "Gotham Lounge" is completely confused. On our first... More

My longtime partner and I traveled to New York City to be married in mid-November, and we decided that the event was too important to take a chance on just any hotel.

While this hotel does cater to an upper class crowd, (to which I do not belong) the hotel was beautiful. If you're ok spending $800-$1600 a night and $8 for a bottle of water then you'll love this place. We were there for business but were able to squeeze in a spa treatment and it was wonderful. The spa amenities... More

We needed a place to stay one night and chose The Peninsula. The rooms are quite small, but just like many other hotels in NYC. Breakfast was with extra charge. The room service was good, but nothing extraordinary. Nice hotel, with a great location.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Known for its world-renowned service and attention to detail, The Peninsula New York is the prestigious recipient of the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Awards.

Rooms are designed for maximum comfort, with a good night's rest virtually guaranteed.
