The Peninsula New York
Ranked #47 of 468 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The Peninsula Hotel is conveniently located in mid-town Manhatten, at the corner of 5th Ave. and 55th St. -- within walking distance of Central Park, Rockefeller Centre, Times Square, Empire State Bldg. etc. Put on a good pair of walking shoes and walk to your heart's content. You will never run out of things to see and do.
If you want to spoil yourself, this is the place -- gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! We found all the staff to be extremely friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. This hotel has the most spectacular Christmas decorations, both inside and out. Our room was extremely elegant -- two queen beds, large flat-screen TV, armchair and ottoman at the foot of each bed, desk, wi-fi, marble bathroom, separate toilet, separate shower, enclosed TV above the bathtub, and the room was very soundproof. What an amazing experience!

Amazing hotel in a great location for shopping on Fifth Avenue, Times Square, Theatre District and Central Park. Service was excellent. Spa is definitely worth a visit. Room was very spacious for New York and bed was so comfy. Cannot fault this hotel, very luxurious.

2-night stay in a standard room on 11th floor.

Excellent service. the big plus is a very helpful and knowledgeable concierge team who did all our restaurant bookings and share a few insights with us on the Big Apple. Thanks a lot for making our stay so seamless

The room was extremely comfortable, comfy bed, very large screen, marble bathroom, soundproof, it ticked all the boxes of a luxury hotel. A few let downs though:

- I sent a gift to the hotel prior to our arrival, so that it could be put in our room when arriving and surprised my girlfriend, but things went wrong and gift stayed in the storage room... Needed to proactively ask for it to be delivered when a butler came with the gift in a plastic bag... Not really the high attention to details i was expecting from Peninsula...
- the room was a bit too small. Ok it is NYC, but i think it would be a but uncomfortable to live in this room for a few hours as there is not much space beside the bed and the desk. Always a but frustrating, especially when it's raining for a full day...

I booked a junior suite in July for a 9 night occupancy in November, requesting a room on a high floor. The hotel's website suggests that junior suites have windows on two sides, and are typically (although not always) on higher floors. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor, which had two normal windows on one side, and nothing in the way of a view. I asked to see other rooms but we were told they were full and would have nothing for at least several days (fair enough, this was a few days after Hurricane Sandy). I said that that the website suggested windows on two sides, and was told that a few did not have this feature - so we were unlucky on two counts: not enough windows and a low floor! This was met with a shrug. So we set about moving, and as soon as my cancellation was in place the next day, an alternative room was produced by magic. Too late - we were on our way to the Four Seasons (which I will also review separately).

The room itself was perfectly acceptable, but over priced. It needed all the lights on, all day, even in the sunny weather. For just $55 a night more, we were on the 50th floor of the Four Seasons with extraordinary views on two sides which meant a trip to Top of the Rock was not needed!

And finally, the waiter was just plain rude in their bar. My daughter asked what teas did they serve and his reply was simple and straightforward: "Read the menu".

Not a bad hotel but highly overpriced. I stayed at many hotels in that region. 4 times more expensive than any other hotel. If you want to impress your friends with your money just stay there but i stayed in better rooms with better service, better view for less money. Also minibar costs a fortune.

Room Tip: Select a room facing the main street. Other rooms are very dark.

The Peninsula New York is a world class hotel with a perfect location on 5th Avenue. The last time I visited the hotel, I was traveling with my family and my daughter who fell in love with the pool on top of the building. I highly recommend having drinks and appetizers under the heat lamps on the roof top at Salon de Ning. The food and service at Fives Restaurant is spectacular--especially the Sunday Brunch. Overall, The Peninsula is a wonderful choice for your next visit to New York City, even with your kids!:)

Room Tip: As is always the case with large metropolitan city hotels, request a high floor to avoid noise from...

Being a tourist in New York demands that you orchestrates small interludes in your cultural consumption. You need the oasis, or refugees, were you can withdraw into private contemplation over the impressions the Big Apple so generously and constantly are pouring out over your soul.
Such a place is the bar at the Peninsula. It is a haven away from the hefty heartbeat of the city.
The waiters are soothing and attentive in their descretly performed eager to please your needs in any way they have in command. The barkeeper is of course first rate, and the relaxing atmosphere has that informal touch of naturally displayed luxury that goes with everything from Roederer to the Buddenbrooks. You don't sit down at the Peninsula, you immerse your fatigue into a furnitural embrace. And as your body is falling at ease, your urban worries evaporates in perfect harmony with the bubbles in your glass. If you ever should fall for the temptation to touch NY from inside, you won't come closer. This bar is the tenderloin of the town.
And I have not even mentioned the roofterrace. Absolutely top notch.
