We choose our five-diamond hotel brand partners according to the same standards to which we hold ourselves accountable, including a sterling history in our industry and a reputation for unforgettable luxury experiences. EmpireCLS is proud to partner with one of the world’s finest hotel brand properties, the Peninsula New York.
The Peninsula Hotels belong to the Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, China’s first luxury hospitality brand. Founded in 1866, the family-owned Peninsula Hotels now operate in ten cosmopolitan cities across the globe. The Peninsula New York was opened in 1988, at the height of Manhattan’s post-70s resurgence of power and glamour. Now, the Peninsula remains an emblem of luxury at one of the city’s most prestigious addresses.
Who visits the Peninsula? The hotel’s guests want to experience the finest of Manhattan living and retreat from the busy streets, but still want to immerse themselves in the rush of the city at their convenience. At the Peninsula, you’ll find guests who appreciate classically elegant interior design as much as they appreciate technological innovation. From the lobby’s sweeping double staircase to multi-lingual room technology, the Peninsula is designed for them.
The hotel’s suites are outfitted with luxury amenities down to the last detail. Whether a deluxe suite for a family of four or an executive suite for the high-speed business traveler, each room is carefully designed to be as beautiful, harmonious and intimate as any pre-war uptown apartment. Lavish bathrooms with complimentary Oscar de la Renta bath amenities create the ultimate in-room retreat, while innovations, like in-room listening experiences by Beats, keep the Peninsula’s guests up to speed with their world.
At the Peninsula, guests are treated with the honor befitting a luxury hotel with such an extensive heritage, which means tailored packages, world-class dining experiences and accessible services both inside the hotel and outside of it. Guests visiting the hotel for business can take advantage of the Peninsula’s Executive Traveler Programme, which provides busy travelers with everything they need to stay on top of their game, including a daily Continental breakfast, complimentary local phone calls and daily paper, high-speed internet and complimentary pressing of two garments per day. For guests who come to the Peninsula just to escape, the hotel offers the Manhattan Retreat package, which guarantees a late checkout, discounted treatments at the hotel spa and $50 of hotel credit.
Even without opting for a luxury package, the Peninsula’s guests find a wealth of sumptuous experiences during their stay. Dining at the Peninsula is always a pleasure, whether at Clement, a world-class Contemporary American restaurant, or the Peninsula’s suite of bars, including the Salon de Ning rooftop bar and the Gotham Lounge, where guests can enjoy afternoon tea, light snacks and evening cocktails. The Peninsula staff also creates elegant, private in-room dining experiences by request. When not dining, guests can relax at the Peninsula Spa, which offers therapeutic, holistic treatments to refresh the mind and body.
When guests are ready to leave the hotel, EmpireCLS is proud to offer complimentary transportation from the Peninsula into the heart of Manhattan. The city’s most elegant shopping and dining can be found here, as well as thriving cultural district that houses some of the world’s most important works of art.
