Step inside the one and only Peninsula, New York, and prepare to be wowed by the grandiose, almost flamboyant level of luxury that this five-star Manhattan hotel is known for throughout the world.
There is no compromise on quality, looks or service standards here, as The Peninsula flaunts solid marble, vaulted ceilings, gilded bannisters and elaborate chandeliers from the moment you arrive, followed by a friendly awaiting concierge team.
Yet elsewhere, things move from this stately design to something much more modern, as antique stylings are replaced by Pop Art pieces on the walls, designer furniture and swanky bar areas.
This state-of-the-art touch can also be seen in the hotel’s contemporary spa, indoor heated pool and gym, not to mention the rooftop terrace and bar; surely one of the best spots to enjoy a drink in all of New York. Fine dining also comes courtesy of The Peninsula’s Clement Restaurant which, just like most of the indoor spaces, overlooks Fifth Avenue through original arched windows. Then you have the guestrooms and suites at The Peninsula, New York, each offering that same mix of old and new as classical design elements and original turn-of-the-century high ceilings host modern king-size beds, flat-screen TVs and luxe marble bathrooms.
The Peninsula really is more than your average luxury New York hotel.
Few properties can boast its history, rival that prime Fifth Avenue location surrounded by all the Big Apple highlights, or even match the splendour of interior design, particularly the lobby – and that priceless rooftop bar is just the icing on the cake!
Every room option at The Peninsula, New York, is a fittingly sophisticated affair and spacious too, with entry-level Superior Rooms beginning at 370sq ft, going up to 3,300sq ft in the top suites, though with many sitting somewhere between the two. Inside, you’ll find an upmarket décor scheme that’s perfectly in line with the rest of the hotel. Think patterned carpets, polished dark wood furniture, armchairs, sofas, thick king-size beds and marble bathrooms plus a mix of either neighbourhood, cityscape or internal courtyard views. Suites then have a very long list of in-room extras and some offer complimentary use of the hotel’s MINI Cooper, though every option comes with a flat-screen TV and DVD player, smart-room controls, a minibar, robes and slippers, Oscar de la Renta toiletries, complimentary international calls and lots more on top.
Unashamedly touting the best of modern American cuisine, the Clement Restaurant and Bar is an atmospheric fine dining option that’s big on flavour, presentation and technique alike. The space itself is also fun, with the eclectic décor not dissimilar to the variety of gourmet options on the menu, from morning till night. There’s a small cocktail bar here too, which makes for a laidback spot before or after your meal.
Sip on a cocktail and take in the famous New York skyline from the terraces of Salon de Ning. This trendy, sofa-clad, rooftop bar boasts unbeatable views across the city and down to Fifth Avenue below, making it one of the city’s best spots, for sure.
Treat yourself to one of The Peninsula's decadent afternoon teas in the sophisticated surrounds of the Gotham Lounge, an upmarket bar area that offers something altogether different throughout the day where light lunches are serviced, though also champagne and cocktails in the evening.
Activities and Entertainment
While staying at The Peninsula, New York, you’re situated right on Fifth Avenue, meaning the Big Apple’s main attractions are all within immediate, easy reach. Take in a show on Broadway, visit the famous department stores nearby, perhaps Times Square or the Empire State Building, and wander just a few blocks to Central Park for a coffee and hot dog! You are also right near the Museum of Modern Art here, though in truth the surrounding subways and endless stream of yellow taxis that file past the hotel will whisk you to any New York highlight in no time.
A real treat for any central New York hotel is the inclusion of a swimming pool, and thankfully you’ll find one here at The Peninsula, as well as a spa and remarkably well-equipped gym too. Everything else can be taken care of via the hotel’s concierge, and if booking one of the higher-end suites you’ll have complimentary use of a MINI Cooper to do a little exploring too. Another major highlight is The Peninsula’s rooftop terraces, lined with sofas and just perfect for aerial NYC views.
Midtown Manhattan, New York, USA. The Peninsula sits on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, meaning a hop, skip and a jump to Central Park, ‘Museum Mile’, multiple galleries, Broadway and Times Square, among other New York highlights. Depending on traffic, La Guardia airport is around 30-40 minutes’ drive away while JFK is roughly 45 minutes by car.
