The Peninsula

700 5th Ave., at 55th St., New York, New York, 10019, USA

Stepping through the Peninsula's Beaux Arts facade onto the grand staircase overhung with a monumental chandelier, you know you're in for a glitzy treat. Service here is world-class and personalized, and the views are stunning: either the northward sweep up 5th Avenue to Central Park past church steeples, or east toward the beautiful St. Regis across the street. Excellent high-tech amenities include a bedside console that controls the lighting, sound, and thermostat as well as a TV mounted over the bathtub (in all but standard rooms). The rooftop Peninsula Spa, with indoor pool, is monumental. The Salon de Ning, a rooftop bar bedecked with Chinese-style daybeds, has dazzling views of Midtown.
