Reviewed 13 June 2017 via mobile

This is the best Hotel in New York City and not every body knows it.

My Father, who loved Luxury and only bought the best he could afford his whole life, always stayed
Here and took me out to Lunch here.

He owned a home on Rowes Wharf in Boston overlooking the Harbor. And Luxury and service were tremendously important to him, as they were to my
Grandfather,Harry.

At the Peninsula Hotel in New York they offer a 15 percent discount if they can help you out.

Often because they are so excellent at what they, they can not accommodate you unless you make a reservation well in advance.

My Father, had a small business and traveled all over the United States. He was licensed in every state. He always made me make his reservation on the phone. He was very funny. He would say" Get me a room at
The Peninsula that I won't hear the garbage trucks in all night." And they always gave him a fine room, sometimes
Upping the room to a Suite if It was available.

This hotel is beautifully furnished.
The food is exquisite.
The service World Class.

The attitude is Formal but friendly. My Dad was completely loyal to them, because of it.

Across the street on Fifth Avenue at 53 Street,
Is the New ,Harry Winston's, a jeweler, who served my parents in the original store.

I was in there looking today.
What a lot of people don't realize about Harry Winston's is they also have a line of Jewelry that is under $2500.

People associate them with priceless Jewels, but they like to be of service to anyone who has an interest in fine Jewelry.
They are interested in selling quality.

Ate lunch at a Greek Restaurant at 55 East 54street named Nerai. Excellent food, not crazy expensive. We usually go for dinner
Around 9. Glamorous place.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with family

The peninsula! As most can anticipate, a beautiful property. I have been to Peninsula's across the world, and though I enjoyed my stay, I was missing a "WOW" factor. Overall, well sized rooms (for NYC), Nice rooftop bar, friendly staff but of course Pricey! Hotel is perfectly located and provides you with a hint of "OLD PRESTIGIOUS NEW YORK" What I loved about the hotel is that it wasn't loud and people were respectful. Either way, safe stay! Not a WOW but still beautiful.

I booked through AMEX FHR and was quite surprised with the quality of the rooms and overall facility. Maybe time for some updating! I had an issue at check-in as well but partially my fault. My first room was not good but they quickly fixed that situation. Certainly way better hotels to stay in NY at a better price than this. I will not return and do not recommend it to others.

55th and 5th Avenue in the heart of New York City. Doesn't get any better then this.
The staff was extremely friendly and treated us like royalty. The rooms are amazingly spacious and the beds couldn't have been better. Truly one of New York City's finest.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

Very famous and awesome hotel, top service and in an optimal position for tourists, a little less for work, the rooftop is really beautiful and the SPA is one of the best in town, if possible ask for an high floor room park view, the lower ones due to the proximity to others skyscrapers sometimes are
a little dark and stifling.
