The hotel’s spa, The Peninsula Spa New York is one of our favorite day spas in the Big Apple, thanks to its cozy relaxation lounges with fluffy duvet-covered beds, its sumptuous locker rooms complete with a eucalyptus steam room and sauna, and, of course, a splendid range of treatments like Biologique Recherche facials provided by the most gracious and professional therapists. But what really sets The Peninsula New York apart from other hotels is its level of personalized service.
