Ample on-site amenities and services, including a pool, a rooftop lounge and a fine dining restaurant
Room rates are very pricey
Midtown Manhattan's golden Peninsula calls itself a "cocoon of peace and quiet" amid the fray on Fifth Avenue. And recent travelers agree, though they contend that it's an expensive cocoon. Highlights include free internet access, the rooftop terrace Salon de Ning (which offers stunning city views) and a highly acclaimed spa and health club. But that's not all this ultra-luxurious hotel has going for it. Previous visitors cited the top-notch service, spectacular vistas and enviable location (just steps away from Central Park and Rockefeller Center) as equally compelling reasons to return. Others described the property as elegant and serene, praising the hotel's calming color palette and extra touches found in each of the accommodations, such as stocked minibars, marble baths, cozy robes and slippers, and sleek flat-screen TVs. Recent visitors also raved about the delectable dishes and sophisticated atmosphere offered at the hotel's dining establishments, the Clement Restaurant and the Gotham Lounge.

Condé Nast Traveler


The 23-story Beaux Arts–style Peninsula on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan is one of the greats. Its facade has limestone carvings, a copper cornice, and Doric columns.


The 239-room Peninsula has small TVs in the standard rooms, but the indoor pool, superb gym (free workout gear, organic teas, and a sauna and steam room), widely praised spa and salon, and in-room fax machines make it a fine choice for a quiet, classically luxurious hotel.

Travel + Leisure


Of the same vintage as the neighboring St. Regis (both hotels were built between 1904 and 1905), the Peninsula has retained its decorative Beaux-Arts facade – but inside, old-world grandeur meets streamlined modernity.



The hotel's unique Peninsula Academy takes personalized service to new heights, creating planned cultural activities based on guest preferences (if you'd like a Fifth Avenue walking tour or private breakfast at Van Cleef & Arpels, just ask).

Fodor's Choice



One of the main reasons to stay at The Peninsula New York is the deluxe amenities. Rooms come outfitted with a fully stocked desk, which is easy and convenient if you are in town on business.
