Spotlight on The Peninsula, New York
In the heart of Midtown and surrounded by many of New York City's most prestigious shopping, theaters, museums, and restaurants sits the proud and glamorous Peninsula Hotel. On 5th Avenue, a short walk from Central Park, you simply cannot help but fall in love with this elegant hotel where you are greeted by name. Spacious suites - most notably the six room Peninsula Suite - and exclusive Oscar de la Renta toiletries are only two more reasons to check out this handsome hotel the next time you are in town.
While staying in the hotel you can make use of the Peninsula Edition BMW (based on availability so book in advance) or, if you are staying in a suite you have access to a complimentary three hour chauffer-driven tour of the city in one of the custom Mini Cooper S Clubmans featuring a refrigerator and iPod connections. Peninsula's restaurant, Clement, is spread throughout several rooms and are all individually decorated. There is also the option of the Gotham Lounge which serves afternoon tea or head on up to the 23rd floor for cocktails at Salon de Ning and experience views of 5th avenue that are simply breathtaking.
Other features include the Peninsula Spa as well as a well-appointed Fitness Center, indoor pool and hair salon. A particularly appealing feature in this bustling city is the luxurious sun terrace on the 21st floor - the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon.

When to go: Unfortuantely New York is so popular that there is not a very discernable low season, although you can often get better deals during January and February.
Travel Tip: No matter what room category you stay in, there are rooms facing 5th avenue and quieter ones facing the inner courtyard. We recommend booking one facing 5th avenue as the views below are breathtaking.
