This place is a classic. From decor to service to amenities, it's really a gold standard in what a luxury hotel should be. This was my fanciest trashy hotel room party. We started in the lobby bar until we amassed a crowd. My friends were a little taken aback by the waiter in tails and I'm sure by the drink prices, but when things are made just. so. and how... it's not for you to complain, it's an experience. We then moved on to the Pen Top bar... fantastic views, a continuation of the well made drinks and stellar service. It was cold, but the smokers (who smokes anymore?!? I know...) were able to enjoy themselves on the terrace. On another occasion, I fondly recall enjoying a summer sunset on the same terrace. Highly recommend this to tourists and locals alike. The suite was amazing... we were upgraded to the Deluxe suite and I remember my bf at the time exclaiming with glee: there's a phone in the bathroom! (this is one of the reasons I broke up with him... kidding!! ... mostly.) There was a fruit basket next to the perfectly placed orchid in the living area, which had a desk and mini library -- as if you were staying with the Glass family. I could go on, but just imagine perfection and it's there at the Peninsula. Ok... /lovefest.Was this review helpful?
