A hotel in the fifth avenue in NYC is in the best place possible. With old time charm, and excellent service, this is a small hotel that cares for every detail. Concierge service is perhaps the best in NYC, making arrangements for theater, restaurant reservations and car rentals.

I had the pleasure of staying at the NY Peninsula for a 4 night long weekend in January 2014. The first time to this property, I was not disappointed with the level of professionalism and hospitality that I am familiar with at other Peninsula properties in the Far East. The accommodations were pleasant and comfortable with every imaginable upgrade. Cleanliness...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Rooms are designed for maximum comfort, with a good night's rest virtually guaranteed.
