The Peninsula New York hotel is the perfect location to choose as a base for a trip to the Big Apple. This was certainly not my first time in New York, but as every time I go, right after I cross the line of the ariport exit, I immediately felt surrounded by the beauty of this coloured, big noisy, lively city.
At the exit, the shuttle was waiting to drop me the Peninsula Hotel, which dominates the cross between the 5th avenue and the 55th street, in the real heart of Manhattan. In few steps Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Abercrombie, the Apple Store, the NBA store… everything.
Thanks to the welcome treatment from the hotel personnel I could immediately feel “almost” at home; the “almost” it’s just due to the fact that just looking around you can admire the luxury, the beauty and the perfection in design. As you know I am quite well known “gourmand” and I immediately took a delicious “traditional afternoon tea” at the Gotham Lounge, a hall featured by a definitely chic Manhattan Deco. And then right after this short break I couldn’t wait to have a look to my really fantastic room, from whose windows I could admire all the best fashion shops on the 5th avenue, the mythic and infinite New York yellow cabs, the skyscrapers and the thousands people moving in every direction. Just enough time to wear a bikini and I went to the pool, at the 22nd floor, and also from here the view was breathtaking!
I spent almost one entire day in the relax and discovery of the Peninsula New York but the days after I could make shopping in all the boutiques I was looking from my windows and to try the amazing ayurvedic treatments at the Peninsula SPA. A really relaxing experience which made me discover a fantastic hairdressing saloon inside the hotel where expert hands were ready to take care of by hairs with some fantastic Shu Uemura products which I really loved.
At night I had dinner at Clement, the hotel restaurant, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, with again a nice view on the Fifth Avenue. The restaurant offers some special dishes created on purpose to tribute the classics of the real American Kitchen. In the end I loved my “slow braised wagyu beef”.
After dinner, you can go up, at the last floor (a classic in New York), where you can find the Salon Ning, an innovative rooftop bar with a terrace looking from the top the never sleeping city, where it is possible to dream with the eyes open while drinking a tasty cocktail (I suggest you to try the “Ning Sling”).
The only negative thing to stay at this fantastic hotel is that feeling that soon or later in the end it will come, it will come the moment to leave, and in the end few days later it happens to me. But in the end I can’t stay away from New York too much and I hope to have another chance to stay at the Peninsula New York very soon.

L’hôtel The Peninsula New York est le lieu idéal à choisir comme base pour un voyage à la Big Apple. Ce ne était certainement pas ma première fois à New York, mais comme chaque fois que je vais, juste après avoir franchi la ligne de sortie de l’aéroport, je me suis senti immédiatement entouré par la beauté de cette colorée bruité, ville dynamique.
A la sortie, la navette me attendait pour m’emmener à l’Hôtel Peninsula, qui domine le croisement entre la 5ème avenue et la rue 55ème, dans le vrai cœur de Manhattan. A côté de l’ hôtel , Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Abercrombie, l’Apple Store, la boutique NBA … tout ce que je rêve.
Grâce au chaleureux accueil du personnel de l’hôtel je ai pu immédiatement me sentir “presque” à la maison; le «presque», il est tout simplement dû au fait qu’en regardant juste autour l’on peut admirer le luxe, la beauté et la perfection du design. Comme vous savez, je suis très bien connue comme une belle “gourmande” et je me suis immédiatement pris un délicieux “traditional afternoon tea ” au Gotham Lounge, une salle de thé caractérisée par un design vraiment chic en style Manhattan Déco. Et puis juste après cette brève pause, je ne pouvais pas attendre pour avoir un coup d’oeil à ma chambre vraiment fantastique, d’ou je pouvais admirer toutes les meilleures boutiques de mode de la 5ème avenue, le nombreux et mythiques taxis jaunes de New York et les gratte-ciel et aussi les gens en mouvement dans toutes les directions. Juste le temps de porter un maillot de bain et je suis allé à la piscine, au 22ème étage, et aussi de là la vue était stupéfiante !
J’ai passé presque un jour entier dédié à la détente et à la découverte de l’ hôtel The Peninsula de New York, mais les jours après j’ai eu aussi de faire du shopping dans toutes les boutiques que le premier jour je regardais de mes fenêtres et même d’essayer les incroyables soins ayurvédiques à la SPA. Une expérience très relaxante qui m’a fait aussi découvrir un salon de coiffure fantastique ( au même étage de la salle de sport de l’ hôtel), où des mains expertes étaient prêtes à prendre en charge mes cheveux avec certains fantastiques produits de Shu Uemura que j’ai vraiment aimé.
La nuit, je ai dîné chez Clément, les restaurant de l’hôtel, avec un super design conçu par Yabu Pushelberg, et avec encore une fois une belle vue sur la Cinquième Avenue. Le restaurant propose des plats spéciaux créés exprès pour hommage aux classiques de la vraie cuisine américaine. À la fin ai adoré mon “slow braised wagyu beef”.
Après le dîner, on peut monter, au dernier étage (un grand classique à New York), où il y a  le Salon Ning, un bar sur le toit innovant avec une terrasse avec vue, depuis le sommet, de la ville qui ne dort jamais, où il est possible de rêver avec les yeux ouverts tout en buvant un cocktail savoureux (je vous suggère d’essayer le “Ning Sling”).
La seule chose négative de séjourner dans cet hôtel fantastique est ce sentiment que tôt ou tard à la fin il viendra, il viendra dans le moment de partir, et à la fin quelques jours plus tard, il est arrive à moi. Mais à la fin je ne peux pas rester loin de New York trop temps et donc  j’espère avoir une autre chance de séjourner au The Peninsula New York très bientôt.

L’hotel The Peninsula New York é la location perfetta da scegliere come base per un viaggio nella Grande Mela. Questa, non era certamente la mia prima volta a New York, ma come ogni volta, appena varcata l’uscita dell’aereoporto, mi sono sentita già avvolta dalla bellezza di questa città colorata, grande, rumorosa e viva.
All’uscita, ad attendermi, la navetta che mi avrebbe portata all’hotel The Peninsula, che si trova tra la 5th e la 55th strada, nel cuore di Manhattan. A pochi passi i negozi di Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Abercrombie, l’Apple Store, l’NBA store… insomma, qualsiasi cosa.
Grazie all’accoglienza del personale ci si sente “quasi” a casa da subito ; il “quasi” é soprattutto dovuto al fatto che basta guardarsi intorno per ammirare il lusso, la bellezza e la perfezione di ogni singola cosa.
Da buona “gourmand” , per prima cosa, ho preso un delizioso “traditional afternoon tea” al Gotham Lounge, una sala da the dallo stile decisamente chic “Manhattan Deco”. E poi sono salita nella mia lussuosa camera, dalla cui finestra potevo ammirare i negozi di moda più belli della 5th avenue, il colore giallo degli innumerevoli taxi, i grattacieli e le miriadi di persone in movimento. Il tempo di indossare un bikini ed ero già in piscina , al 22esimo piano: anche qui, la vista su New York era mozzafiato.
Nei giorni a seguire, oltre a fare shopping intorno all’Hotel , ho provato alcuni trattamenti Ayurvedici alla SPA ( un’esperienza davvero rilassante) ed ho scoperto l’esistenza di un fantastico salone di coiffure all’interno dell’hotel dove mani esperte erano pronte a prendersi cura dei miei capelli ( ho adorato i prodotti di Shu Uemura)!
La sera ho cenato da Clement , il ristorante dell’hotel, il cui design é stato curato da Yabu Pushelberg, con vista sulla Fifth Avenue, che propone alcuni piatti speciali creati come tributo ai classici della vera cucina Americana. Tra questi, ho amato particolarmente lo “slow braised wagyu beef “.
Dopo cena, si sale su, all’ultimo piano dove si trova il Salon Ning , un innovativo rooftop bar dalla terrazza con vista mozzafiato sulla “città che non dorme mai” , dove é possibile sognare ad occhi aperti e gustare un fantastico cocktail ( in particolare vi consiglio di provare il “Ning Sling”).
La sola cosa negativa di soggiornare in questo magnifico hotel é che prima o poi, arriverà il momento di dover partire, come é accaduto anche a me qualche giorno dopo. Ma in fondo spero, di avere l’occasione di tornarci molto presto !
