Peninsula NYC Reopens with Stunning Art, Tantalizing Culinary, Wellness Offers

Peninsula Hotels welcomes back guests to its New York property while celebrating anniversaries in Chicago and Beverly Hills

The Peninsula Hotels has reopened its iconic New York City hotel – a heritage property that has hosted discerning world travelers since 1988. In celebration of its guests’ return, the hotel is unveiling a series of new art, culinary, and wellness experiences for visitors to enjoy.

Just steps from Central Park along the cultural nexus of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, The Peninsula New York marked its reopening with a dynamic new art installation, Life en Route. The exhibit, which includes multimedia works from a group of renowned international artists, immerses viewers in the sensory pleasures of travel and cross-cultural experiences.

Several of the works on display will be available for sale to benefit The Peninsula New York’s cultural partners. The hotel will also host Dutch neo-expressionist painter Peter Riezebos this summer as part of the group’s global Art in Resonance program. While he is in residence, guests can visit with Riezebos and observe how the city of New York inspires his work.

Guests can enjoy the skyline and indulge in a bubbly party atmosphere by joining Salon de Ning’s rooftop DJ series.

Meanwhile, the Peninsula Chicago is commemorating its 20th anniversary this month as an acclaimed Windy City landmark. Also celebrating an anniversary later this year is The Peninsula Beverly Hills. The lush gardenlike property sits adjacent to Century City and the legendary Rodeo Drive.

At all ten of its properties around the world, The Peninsula Hotels is doubling down on its commitment to service and luxury with The Peninsula Promise. This new portfolio-wide initiative provides guests with enhanced flexibility, comfort, and convenience.

The many features of The Peninsula Promise include guaranteed connecting rooms, ensuring shared space for guests to safely enjoy with family and friends; fully flexible check-in and check-out times, allowing guests to have their rooms ready as early as 6:00 a.m. on their arrival date and check out as late as 10:00 p.m. on their departure date; PenChat, a private 24-hour e-concierge service, which lets guests text any request or requirement (from dining and transport reservations to in-room delivery of extra pillows) quickly and securely; and custom-fragranced, environmentally friendly in-room amenities like shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and body milk, made with natural ingredients and packaged in recyclable materials.

Peninsula Packages

Two exclusive promotions will also be available for guests returning to The Peninsula New York.

In Chicago, in honor of its vicennial (a 20-year benchmark), the hotel is debuting three special offers for guests who appreciate its Far East-meets-Midwest hospitality. First, the hotel’s refined Cantonese restaurant, Shanghai Terrace, and The Lobby restaurant will debut a special menu of favorites from the last two decades, including Szechwan prawns, Pierrot gourmet chicken salad, rice noodles with shrimp and tenderloin, and a special rainbow patterned veggie dumpling.

Also, The Spa at The Peninsula Chicago is extending a 20 percent discount off all treatments booked on Tuesdays, and on purchases of Subtle Energies beauty products.
