“Family Friendly and Great location-Excellent stay”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Stayed at the Peninsula the last weekend in June and had an amazing time! Great hotel right on the corner of 5th ave. and 55th st./ hotel entrance is on 55th st. Stayed with my wife and daughter. Some of the things I enjoyed:

The Room - very quiet for being right in the city and good size bathroom with separate tub and shower and they don't charge extra for a roll away bed.

The Pool- Indoor pool over looking 5th Ave- Family Friendly- a little cold but you ask them to turn the heater up- they have a kids water aerobics class on Saturdays, but the instructor was sick so we missed it- my daughter was a little bummed about that.

The Location- One of the reasons I picked this Hotel-Great Location. Walked to The American Girl Doll store on 5th ave- just a few blocks. Short cab ride to Times Square To See Annie on Broadway. Close to Central Park.

The Staff- So Helpful and Friendly- They have a kids pack they give to children staying in the hotel that includes a hotel scavenger hunt. My daughter and I had a lot of fun with this because the staff went out of their way to help us with the clues and very excited to see us enjoying the hunt. When done, you turn in your answers to the Concierge and my daughter got 2 chocolate bars and a Peninsula Bear key chain as a prize- She loved it!

The Concierge really did a great job for us on the last day. We had checked out of the hotel and left our bags with the bellman to meet my sister and her family for dinner before our flight home but I was worried about getting back to the Hotel to get the bags and making it in time to the airport. The Concierge said he could have a car come and pick up our bags at the hotel and then get us at the restaurant so we could leave right after dinner. Yes this was an extra charge but well worth it. We ate Dinner without feeling rushed and made it to the airport with no problem.

I will go back to the Peninsula and would highly recommend it.
Thank you to all the staff for an Excellent stay!

Won't go into to much detail but this hotel was fab!
Couldn't find a fault and hope to go back at some point.
Excellent and very helpful staff, great attention to detail throughout the hotel, excellent and well equip rooms, great food in the restaurant, only had a quick look round roof top bar as we were pushed for time, but was really funky and well worth a visit.
Great location, close to most main tourist sites within New York.
Didn't visit the spa or gym but I'd imagine the high standards could also be found there.
Take me back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two stops here - one after a day's cycling round north Manhattan: had our aperitifs on the roof. We sat on the small balcony on the north side looking up Fifth Avenue towards the park, as it was shady. Great cocktail menu, ordered at bar but served at table. Second stop, the following evening five of us had "dinner" at the Salon de Ning, on the large open terrace facing down Manhattan. We had cocktails and then chose all the small plates on the menu and shared. The food was delicious and the wine, red and white and American by choice, was excellent. The service impeccable. On leaving discovered there was another large terrace looking towards Sixth Avenue, just as attractively set out. Highly recommend this for a first (warm and dry!) night in New York as not expensive and the views are staggering. No idea about the hotel itself, but it looked amazing - and expensive - but what a location for NYC.

Whilst the entrance lobby isn't as impressive as some of the other traditional high end hotels, everything else about this hotel is great. Perfect location, service is excellent, the gym is immense, as good as any hotel gym I've seen, and concierge were very helpful with all bookings. The rooms weren't huge but very well and recently refurbished. I've stayed in lots of hotels in New York and this is my favourite.

For quite a few years My beloved and I have stayed at the Peninsula in New York City. This is a wonderful hotel. It always feels as if we are "at home" here.
Staff is kind and helpful and discreet. Victoria at the Concierge desk is excellent. Rooms are large and very comfortable (except for the annoying lighting controls on the bedside tables); beds extremely comfy with lovely linens. Blackout curtains and double glazed windows make for a dark and quiet room at night. One of the reetaurant/bars is closed for renovation, so the remaining lobby bar is pretty busy these days. Breakfast room service is very prompt, courteous, the coffee is excellent, by the way.
In the lobby bar, the music in not appropriate; however, no music would be better! On a recent short visit on our way home from Europe, I had a bad cold, and reached into my pocket for a kleenex, and a uniformed employee came rushing up with a wooden box of tissues; the very idea of a guest using crumpled up tissues was worrisome. This was absolutely charming! Wonderful location right at the center of the universe, lovely facilities, excellent staff. Very expensive, however all luxury hotels in NYC are very expensive; and room taxes are very high in New York, doncha know? Overall, just about our favorite hotel anywhere, smooth and calm and professionally excellent.

I liked this hotel - the decor is comfortable and modern at the same time (not like some other really stuffy ones we've seen). The location is great and the staff is courteous.
The bar area is not that good as it's just up the stairs and looks like they were just trying to find somewhere to put it...
Rooms are nice but considering we had a junior suite they're quite small... I guess that's NYC for you!
Overall a good and pleasant stay.
