The Peninsula New York offers luxurious, bright guest rooms with large windows and simple, contemporary furnishings. There are three kinds of rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York hotel: superior, deluxe and grand luxe.
The cozy superior rooms — the standard level at this luxury hotel — are dressed in classic neutral tones and provide a view of the courtyard. They feature king-sized beds and the usual arrangements, including a seating area, desk and marble bathroom. The deluxe rooms are larger and have a dedicated work desk with a silent fax machine and universal power adapter outlets, an ideal choice if you need to get some work done.
The grand luxe rooms offer more space and the most luxurious feel without splurging on a suite at The Peninsula New York suite. You’ll find all the comforts of home and then some: These rooms overlook Midtown’s Fifth Avenue, a New York shopping paradise filled with some of the world’s most famous boutiques and department stores. One standout feature — they have some of the most spacious bathrooms in all of Manhattan. Every one includes a separate soaking tub and walk-in shower, large vanity and separate toilet. If the phone should ring while you’re soaking in the tub, press a button to activate the speakerphone. Otherwise, you can simply relax during your bath and watch the flat-screen television on the wall.
Other grand luxe perks include a roomy seating area; a desk stocked with office supplies; a sumptuous bed with a thick, pillow-top mattress wrapped in white Frette linens; and bedside controls to regulate the temperature, lights, television and the privacy sign outside your door. Convenient maps for the New York subway and jogging routes throughout Central Park are placed in the rooms as well. The grand luxe accommodations also have the best Fifth Avenue views; just be sure to request one when you make a reservation.
