The Peninsula New York

The Peninsula New York most definitely belongs on my list of Top 16 New York Hotels with great views due its central location and amazing views of the city skyline. On 5th Avenue near 55th Street, you will find Rockefeller Center and its observation deck “Top of the Rock”. Other destinations close-by include Central Park. For shoppers, (click here for our Shopping Guide for New York), 5th Avenue is of course a perfect destination, but the Apple store is also just around the corner.

Guest rooms at The Peninsula New York are worthy of their 5-star rating – the interior is well appointed and, compared to standard hotel room sizes, the guest rooms here are truly spacious. The glass-enclosed rooftop pool is a special feature – you can enjoy the fantastic views while swimming your laps! But The Peninsula’s icing on the cake and THE night spot in the area is the hotel’s rooftop bar Salon de Ning. First-class food, exceptional cocktails, and watching the yellow cabs make their way through Manhattan keeping time with the traffic lights – I can recommend it highly.

The excellent hotel reviews and high recommendation rate support my evaluation. At The Peninsula, the 5-star rating actually corresponds to European standards. This includes exclusive Italian linens, extraordinary concierge service, and, of course, complimentary wifi.
