“Felt like a Queen!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have stayed in NYC many times and this hotel by far was the most wonderful that I have stayed in. The front desk check in was seamless. A wonderful young woman named Marion check us in with ease, warmth and hospitality. We were given a lovely room with a great view. The condition of the room was excellent. Lovely bathroom with a separate shower and deep tub that had a flat screen tv in front of it. The front hallway with closet space was spacious to put your things away in with a banquette to put your shopping bags and stuff. Bed was comfy, clean and bedroom looked and felt fresh and clean.

The mini bar is stocked but it's a bit too expensive. They would sell more if the prices were not so elevated. A very small soda is 9.00. House keeping was always on time and the turn down service was lovely too. Fresh towels for the morning, a clean up again, waters by the bed, slippers by the bed and a cool feature is that the room is completely controlled at your finger tips right next to the bed. It controls, tv, lights, temperature.. etc... The lighting in the room is FABULOUS. You could actually read at the end of the day because the lighting was so well done. It made a huge difference.

The hotel was nice and quiet and it was a busy weekend. I have never stayed at a hotel in NYC that was so quiet at night. You do not hear sirens and honking at all. The hallways are nice and peaceful as well. The staff are all warm and gracious. Always had a greeting and a smile. Marion who checked us in also sent us chocolate dipped strawberries, fresh fruit and a bottle of Champagne. She asked if we were here for a special occasion and we told her an anniversary and this is what she did!

Breakfast at Clements was lovely and beautifully presented. The hotel has a great location and I am going to go back. A new find and a lovely one at that!

Room Tip: Bring a swim suit there is a fun pool! Our room 1216 had a private room off of the hallway.

This was the perfect hotel for our 5 night stay. It was in the perfect location - a 30 second walk from the renowned 5th Avenue and close enough to other attractions such as the MOMA, Rockerfeller building and Central Park. A beautiful hotel, stunning suites and friendly and efficient staff. Everything there was top-class, including the breakfastt which was wonderful too- plenty of choice and everything freshly made to order. We spend our late afternoons relaxing in the spa and swimming in the glass enclosed pool. A high class, elegant hotel. A wonderful stay at The Peninsula!

Room Tip: Go for the suites as the rooms are a little on the small side.

Stayed for four nights at this beautiful hotel with my wife and couldn't have loved it more.

The check in was a breeze and since I'm a light sleeper I asked for a quiet room. That was no problem and our room on the 10th floor was dead silent. We did not have any view other then from the wall in front of us but I prefer sleep over view.

We had a standard room and it was relatively big. The bed was very comfortable and as were the pillows. The bathroom had a huge tub and everything looked fresh.

The hotel has complementary water bottles in your room that are replaced everyday which is a very nice touch. You can buy water at the minibar but obviously not necessary. The hotel also has a complementary WiFi and there was no problem connecting three devices (laptop and two phones). The bathroom amenities are also great.

The housekeeping did an excellent job and the room was always very clean.

The SPA is something I would recommend and the pool is very nice. The temperature of the pool is a bit high so doing many laps is more "difficult" than if the pool was cooler.

I had sent few packages to the hotel which was no trouble and there was no charge for that which was nice. Many hotel I have used charge up to $10 for each package.

The rooftop bar is excellent. Good cocktails, nice vibe, great bartenders and great views. It is a bit pricey though and both time we went there it was very busy (at 6 pm and 10 pm).

The breakfast was excellent. They just opened the restaurant the day after we arrived and the three egg omelet was amazing.

We had a 5 pm pickup with Dial 7 before heading to the airport and asked the day before if late check out was possible. The receptionist gave us a complementary late check out until 5 pm which was great. The day we left there was a parade going on on 5th avenue which closed the 55th street to our hotel. We contacted our driver and asked for a pickup at 55th and Madison. The bellboys walked us to Madison with our bags which was of great help.

Overall by far the best hotel I've stayed at in Manhattan and I can't recommend it highly enough. Will without a doubt book my next stay in Manhattan at the hotel.

The rooftop bar, floor 23, is worth a visit for an after dinner drink..lovely atmosphere, watch the lights from traffic and buildings....romantic and stylish and away from the noise and bustle that never seems to stop in New York!

The Peninsula has a great location midtown on 5th avenue near Central Park. The lobby is set off from the street entrance allowing the hotel to offer privacy to its guests. The staff at the hotel look for ways to personalize your trip providing CDs of musicals that you go to see and offer every service needed for the business traveler including in room fax machines

Booked here for our 20th anniversary. The door and bellmen are the most wonderful and helpful people you would ever want to meet. The room is well appointed, and quiet. We even had bath salts to soak with.

Sadly on here for a couple of days and just passing through, but this is one of those hotels where you could envisage yourself spending an extended period of time, never getting bored of the charm of the staff and the effortless grace with the way in which the carry out their service.

In spite of a minor amount of temporary refurbishment work in the hotel belies its classic style as beneath belies an oasis of coolness and sophistication as evidenced by a fabulous rooftop bar playing cool music and serving amazing cocktails.

The room was great too. Perfectly appointed in every way and a great bathroom as well.

Having stayed a couple of times at the St Regis, the Peninsula is unstuffy, but has all of the bells and whistles you'd expect.

A special mention to Sinead at the front desk. Thank you Peninsula - I will be back!!
