The New York Peninsula, which opened in 1905 as the Gotham Hotel, has been fully restored to its original Beaux Arts elegance and designated for landmark preservation. Entering the lobby is like stepping into the grandeur of the Belle Epoque. Rich marble abounds and a multifaceted crystal chandelier highlights renaissance details of the original Gotham ceiling.
Spacious guest rooms are decorated in Art Nouveau style, most with king-size beds, writing desks, and seating areas. Oversized marble bathrooms feature luxurious six-foot tubs.
Two restaurants provide a variety of dining delights. The Adrienne, with its soft mauve tones and art nouveau decor, features elegant French cuisine. Le Bistro's lunch and dinner menu offers more provincial stews and grilled items.
In the Gotham Lounge, English high tea can be enjoyed in the afternoon. Later in the evening, the lounge has piano entertainment.
The crowning feature of this hotel is the Peninsula Spa, a tri-level, glass-enclosed, rooftop health club offering the most extensive facilities of any hotel in New York. It includes an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool, massage, aerobics, weights, fully-equipped exercise rooms, and steam and saunas in the dressing rooms. The Pen-Top Bar and Terrace are also part of the spa.
For those seeking European elegance, proximity to Manhattan's cultural, entertainment and shopping opportunities, and all the facilities to renew oneself after a long day, The New York Peninsula is the place.|
