My wife and I were looking forward to a stress-free weekend at the NYC Peninsula with our baby daughter and Nanny. Unfortunately, we started our visit with significant angst because we did not obtain our adjoining room until 630 pm! Check in time is guaranteed by 3 pm. While quite inconvenient given that we had to prepare for a black... More

Stayed here for three days, the service was absolutely exquisite. However, my room was tiny, I suggest that when you check in you ask for a larger room or an upgrade. That said, the hotel was wonderful and I very much enjoyed my stay. I had a very pricey room service dinner -- steak, baked potato and a glass of... More

When you hear the words 'Peninsula Hotel' you assume you're going to experience exceptional service in a beautiful hotel and that's exactly what you get with the Peninsular New York.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.

After a day of exploring the vibrant heart of the city, the timeless Gotham Lounge is a welcome setting to rejuvenate over Afternoon Tea, or for an unforgettable end to a New York City day, toast from the spectacular rooftop bar and terrace, Salon de Ning, while gazing over panoramic views of the shimmering Manhattan skyline. ... more   less
