One of the best things about staying at The Peninsula New York in the wintertime is getting to experience the festive holiday events that the hotel hosts for its guests. Fives, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s classically sophisticated restaurant, celebrates Thanksgiving by serving a delectable day-of brunch with traditional turkey and cranberries, plus a seafood raw bar, carved meats, aged cheeses, vegetarian-friendly dishes and a dessert bar.
In December, the New York hotel decorates its lobby with lights, a menorah and a Christmas tree. There’s gingerbread-decorating classes for the kids, plus storytelling with Mrs. Claus. Enjoy a special Christmas Eve dinner and a Christmas Day buffet brunch, and then get your party hats on for New Year’s Eve. Fives hosts a New Year’s extravaganza with a prix-fixe dinner paired with wine. Then guests head up to rooftop terrace at Salon de Ning where a DJ spins tunes well past midnight. The next morning, enjoy a New Year’s day brunch or order some well-deserved room service.
