In a very posh neighborhood, settled right at the heart of New York City is The Peninsula New York, a five-star luxury hotel acclaimed as a landmark resort across the United States. It boasts a brilliant blend of contemporary American style and age-old classical traditions that appear distinct in its services and architecture. Highlights include a modern American restaurant, an indoor pool, and a posh rooftop bar.
One of the best hotels in New York, the Peninsula is on Fifth Avenue, 55th street in Midtown Manhattan. This location is the perfect spot for visitors with a penchant for shopping. Moreover, at a six-minute walk from the hotel, guests can find subway lines that allow them to explore the beautiful city.
Additionally, art enthusiasts can visit the Museum of Modern Art, just three minutes walking distance. The most popular place in the vicinity – the New York City Center, organizes dance performances and musicals that attract many visitors.
In the same block lie central park and various restaurants. These eating places include Italian mainstay Il Corso, Alain Ducasse's Benoit, and the Dig Inn, where healthy edibles are served.
In 1905, the property was first developed into Gotham Hotel, which shut down shortly due to lack of business profits and prosperity. In the ensuing years, similar events followed where the hotel reopened and closed at a repetitive rate, until finally, in 1988, The Peninsula New York came into being.
Though many years have passed, and the resort has undergone many renovations, the classic essence of Gotham Hotel is still alive in the modern-day Peninsula New York.
The grand Beaux-Arts entrance to the resort stands apart in its elegance and design. A well-lit hallway also leads guests to a two-story foyer that exudes grandeur and beauty. As guests step inside, their eyes meet the glimmering chandelier hanging from the ornate high-ceiling. There are also bright seasonal flowers mounted on marble tops.
The intricate interior design of the resort, like all the other Peninsula Hotels, is simply breathtaking. Large, winding staircases guide guests to the restaurant and reception, where stately art pieces occupy the walls. These include renowned artists, such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Moreover, the resort is among those that received the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards.
Furthermore, if you wish to roam around the town and visit new spots, the hotel offers a BMW car service with a chauffeur. Besides, you can also book a Mini Cooper S Clubman and private chauffeur.
The resort includes 239 pretty spacious guest rooms and suites. The lavish interior décor features modern furnishings, neutral shades, textiles, and dark-wooden furniture. Walls are adorned by beautiful paintings that incorporate an aspect of color to the view. Additionally, the king-size bed with soft pillows, closets, and sofas all ensure that guests receive the ultimate level of comfort and ease.
Executive desks in the rooms are a relief for business officials on tour, hoping to get some work done during their stay. Guests also have access to printers, scanners, and fax machines. There are also telephone lines to make necessary calls and have fluid communication with their partners.
The best feature of all – you can control the temperature and lights from the comfort of your bed - no need to get out of the plush sheets. Just grab the remote control on the bedside, press a few buttons, and you're good to go. Attached to the cozy superior rooms are marble-floored bathrooms with large, deep-soaking tubs. They also have walk-in showers and dressers that allow you to give yourself a glamorous makeover.
Additional amenities include comfy bathrobes, slippers, and Oscar de la Renta toiletries that take the bathing experience to a superior level.
For couples looking for a posh, elegant venue to have a romantic dinner date, the Clement Restaurant is the perfect spot! The Yabu Pushelberg-designed interiors offer guests an escape from all the noise and commotion that occupy the streets of New York City.
Popular dinner dishes include crab cake with avocado on the side, Pavlova of meringue, berries, and Chantilly cream. At this signature restaurant, meals are available throughout the day. Besides breakfast, guests love treating themselves to rancheros, Belgian waffles, porridge, or basic bacon and eggs. On weekends, the restaurant also extends the menu for a lovely brunch.
Right after dinner, visitors can go for drinks at the Salon de Ning on the 23rd floor. This Shanghai-inspired bar, on the rooftop amidst spindly trees and shrubs, serves delicious quaff cocktails. From this stylish bar, the view of the skyscrapers is ethereal. At nighttime, guests can roam on the outskirts cradling a glass and sipping cocktails under the open starry sky.
Another excellent spot for drinks and snacks is the Gotham Lounge. Visitors love gathering here for afternoon tea. You can also enjoy dishes like seared salmon complemented with grilled vegetables or a turkey club.
The outstanding fitness center is equipped with advanced machines and training material. A trained professional conduct group classes; hence guests can exercise under proper guidance. Moreover, you can also make demands for Peloton workouts at the sweeping terrace.
