One of the world's finest

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2010

One of the finest hotels in the world. Everything about this hotel screams class and money. The rooms are incredible, the lobby is beautiful, and the rooftop bar is one of my favorite places in the city to grab a drink (it's a martini kind of spot). I pretty much love everything about this hotel, from the amazing pillows (I love them so much, I ordered some for myself), super high-threadcount sheets, amazing service, and even the Lindt truffles at the reception desk.

The only drawback to The Peninsula: you may have to mortgage your house to pay for a night here. But if you can splurge, this is a place to do it.

and even if you can't afford to spend an night here, pop in, head up to the rooftop bar and rub elbows with the elite. There's nothing like having a drink in the open air, with skyscrapers all around. The views up and down 5th Avenue, with all the traffic lights leading to central park is fantastic.

Unique Quality: One of the classiest hotels in New York (and the world).

Directions: 55th St. and 5th Avenue (4 blocks south of Central Park)
