I spent this past weekend at the Peninsula New York, and had a fantastic experience. From the chandelier adorned lobby to the charming staff, there isn’t a detail that this hotel doesn’t take into account. The staff: Everyone was very warm and accommodating. Being from the South and frequenting New York regularly, you notice that extra touch of hospitality that sometimes lacks in New York hotels. The valet is great at grabbing a cab for guests. Overall, the staff is accommodating, to say the least, and they do everything with a smile. Rooms: I was in a deluxe king room. The rooms were a good size and the bathroom was particularly spacious with separate shower and bathtub. What I enjoyed most about the hotel is that, while classic, it has all the modern amenities. I’ve stayed at other high end NYC hotels (Plaza/St. Regis/Four Seasons) and they are either, 1) older and still feel older or 2) modern and don’t possess charm. The Peninsula New York is a great fusion classic elegance with modern amenities. Facilities: The pool, spa and workout center are incredible. The best I’ve seen in the city. I don’t need to say anything to justify this… just take my word for it. For anyone who appreciates a premium experience, I recommend The Peninsula New York. Jacob Minkley
