The Peninsula New York offers an amenity at its pool that you’ll rarely find in New York: a sun deck. Come summer, you can head up to the 22nd floor to soak up the sun while you relaxing in an armchair or chaise lounge. Smooth some sunscreen on your skin: it’s complimentary at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. The pool is always heated to a perfect 84 F, so you can go for a dip even if the temperature doesn’t hit 90 F. There’s always a lifeguard on duty, so you don’t have to worry about children playing in the pool.
Many other complimentary amenities make the pool even more enjoyable, including refreshments like coffee, tea, fresh fruit and water. Take a magazine or newspaper to read in your lounge chair topped with a pillow or wrap yourself in a plush towel and then relax in a robe provided at the pool. There are also noodles for kids to play with and weights to work out with, so you can get some exercise while you’re swimming. And how could we forget the best perk? With views overlooking Fifth Avenue, you’ll feel like you’re on the top of the world at The Peninsula New York.
