For all your laundry needs, The Peninsula New York should be able to handle things; the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel offers one-hour express, same-day and 24-hour laundry service as well as one-hour pressing. You can request all services via your in-room phone. The laundry attendant who takes your phone call will also collect the clothing in person. Make sure to specify which kind of service you want and give explicit directions (e.g., no starch, folded shirts and pressed trousers) so that your plans won’t be hampered by a late return of your clothing. Your newly cleaned duds will return nicely packaged: Dress shirts are folded, put in plastic sleeves, wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a dark-brown wicker basket; dress pants are secured on a wooden hanger and protected by a plastic cover. You’ll have plenty of options to ensure you’ll be impeccably dressed that night.
