Of the same vintage as the neighboring St. Regis (both hotels were built between 1904 and 1905), the Peninsula has retained its decorative Beaux-Arts façade—but inside, old-world grandeur meets streamlined modernity. A crystal chandelier dangles in the lobby, illuminating dark-cherry and Carpathian-elm burl woodwork with Art Nouveau carvings; Oriental carpets are spread over white marble floors. The 239 rooms feature goose-feather duvets as well as high-tech touches like bathroom flat-screen TV's (might as well keep up with the financial news while you're soaking in the tub). Afternoon tea service in the Gotham Lounge is a characteristically civilized affair, while the rooftop bar, formerly known as the Salon de Ning, is one of the city's hottest spots for a drink.

Room to Book: If you need to retreat from 5th Avenue's buzz, ask for a courtyard-view room.

Doubles from $975.

Insider Tip:

Take in afternoon tea at the Gotham Lounge, an especially quiet sanctuary from the Midtown bustle.
