The room is furnished in a traditional manner, in taupe colors. My room had a small seating area with a couch and a coffee table. Modern but cozy. Only the light switches seemed slightly dated. Staff is incredibly friendly, warm and genuine. Close to Fifth Avenue, where all the department stores and fancy shops are. Lots of dining options nearby. expensive, moderately priced, and cheap. All types of cuisine available. Wonderful historic hotel with cozy rooms and great service! Had a lovely stay at the peninsula. The hotel is clean and quite small in the communal areas. Room was small but lovely. Really loved the gym and pool. The peloton bikes are amazing. Vu hair salon was also really good. I loved my blow dry and the view is fabulous.
