Hotel Review: The luxurious Peninsula New York boasts a location right in the midst of Manhattan's most prestigious neighborhood. Classic design, intimate ambiance and personalized service all meet up The Peninsula New York, right in the middle of Midtown, filled with New York's finest shopping, culture and business districts.
Famed photographer Annie Leibowitz recently shot two advertising campaigns for the Peninsula Hotel, focusing on the culture and service behind the scenes that make staying at the Peninsula Hotel so special, including the spa at the Peninsula New York, which has the prestige of being one of only two 5-star spas in New York City.
Recent renovations in 2009-2010 at the property include all guest rooms, spa, meeting space and dining/bar. Accommodations at the Peninsula include a variety of room choices that all center on the comfort of a restful bed. Views of bustling Fifth Avenue as well as peaceful courtyard-facing rooms are available, as are luxurious marble bathrooms and mood lighting as well as other superior amenities to make each guest experience as accommodating as possible.
