After a day of sightseeing or being stuck in business meetings, you might want to plop yourself in front of your TV at The Peninsula New York to veg out, catch up on the news and check the weather reports. Every room and suite comes equipped with a 42-inch plasma television that carries premium channels like HBO as well as On-Demand movies, which you can order for a small fee. Rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York hotel also carry DVD players, although there’s no Blu-ray — you’ll have to pack your own PlayStation 3 if you want Harry Potter in extreme definition.
If you’d rather watch TV while enjoying a hot bath, start drawing the water. The luxury hotel’s bathrooms have a flat-screen television built into the wall so you can flip channels while you sit in a soaking tub full of bubbles.
