A landmark 1905 Beaux Arts building, The Peninsula New York can be found in the heart of the city, just two blocks from MOMA and five blocks from Central Park and the Rockefeller Centre. It's the perfect combination of old-world charm and contemporary state-of-the-art technology – bedside control panels mean you can regulate lighting, television and air-conditioning, even the ‘do not disturb’ sign on your door, all from the comfort of your bed. After a busy day of sightseeing or shopping, head to the rooftop bar, Salon de Ning, for a cocktail and views of Fifth Avenue and the Hudson River, or enjoy a treatment at one of New York’s best health clubs and Spa – this spa is the flagship spa for ESPA in North America and the latest to open as part of the Peninsula Wellness programme.
