The Peninsula Review
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: expect to be greeted by name as you make your way through the hotel. 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 for the room as well as a TV mounted over the tub for bath-time viewing (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, though the crowd isn't quite as cool as it used to be.
It's a world-class affair at the Peninsula, where guests receive the ultimate five-star treatment. The staff is warm, welcoming, and accommodating to each and every guest. 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).
