How it Ranks: The Peninsula New York ranks #2 out of 805 New York City Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.
Our Take: Midtown Manhattan's golden Peninsula calls itself a "cocoon of peace and quiet" amid the fray down on Fifth Avenue. And recent travelers agree, though they contend that it's an expensive cocoon. Highlights include free Internet (which is rare in New York), the rooftop terrace Salon de Ning (which offers stunning city views), and a highly acclaimed spa and health club. But this that's not all this ultra-luxurious hotel has going for it. Previous visitors cite the impeccable service, spectacular vistas, and enviable location (just steps away from Central Park and Rockefeller Center) as equally compelling reasons to return. Travelers describe the property as elegant and serene, praising the hotel's calming color palette and extra touches found in each accommodation, such as stocked mini-bars, marble baths, cozy robes and slippers, and sleek flat-screen TVs. Recent visitors also compliment the delectable dishes and sophisticated atmosphere at the hotel's dining establishments, Fives and The Gotham Lounge.
