The Peninsula New York Hotel Review

: The New York member of this top-of-the-line hotel group is superbly located in a turn-of-the-century landmark Beaux Arts building on Fifth Avenue, where the east and west side converge. Exquisite artwork by contemporary artists graces the classically appointed lobby. The geometric-themed Gotham Lounge is a good place to meet for a drink. A 1930s Shanghai vibe and spectacular views form one of the best backdrops for after-work cocktails during the spring and summer. As in many of the old New York hotels, the 185 rooms are fairly compact, but some have now been combined. And for those with a need for more space, there are 54 suites. We like the spacious-at-480-square-feet Grand Luxe rooms that gaze onto Fifth Avenue; other popular rooms take in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Among the amenities, you will enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, silent in-room fax machines, cordless bathroom phones and built-in TVs above the bathtubs. The bedside electronic control panels are truly a luxury, allowing for convenient lighting and temperature regulation, a "privacy" switch and one-touch access to the TV. The luxurious Belle Époque-style furnishings include writing desks. Turn your stay into a retreat by indulging at the Peninsula Spa, located in the hotel’s top three floors. Consider a massage your reward for working out at the fitness facility --- with an in-house trainer or not.
