We stayed in the Executive Suite and it was spectacular. The bathroom tub (that they don't show in the pictures but should! ) has a window overlooking the city. The rooms are carpeted and so comfortable. The beds are very firm which I didn't love but I know that appeals to some people. I really loved this location b/c you're not in the super… Read more
We stayed in the Executive Suite and it was spectacular. The bathroom tub (that they don't show in the pictures but should! ) has a window overlooking the city. The rooms are carpeted and so comfortable. The beds are very firm which I didn't love but I know that appeals to some people. I really loved this location b/c you're not in the super busy financial district and there are some great shops all within walking distance. We also dined at the Shanhai Terrace and dinner was great - recommend the duck and happy rice. We are from Chicago but wanted to spend a weekend in the city, we will definitely be back! They were also very nice about accommodating us for the pool. Read less

This was our third time staying at The Peninsula, this time to celebrate a special anniversary. Also our first venture out during Covid.

This was our third time staying at The Peninsula, this time to celebrate a special anniversary. Also our first venture out during Covid. And our time at the hotel was, as before, excellent in every way. I would add that the procedures they have in place to deal with the virus were thorough and consistent. We felt completely comfortable, not only in our room but also in the public spaces and when dining. This hotel is perfection personified. Read less
