THE PENINSULA NEW YORK REVEALS MAGICAL FESTIVE MOMENTS FOR THE FAMILIES

Taking inspiration from festive traditions around the globe, the world’s leading luxury hotel reveals a range of events aimed at supporting child literacy and local charities.

 

A Time to Celebrate
The festive season is the perfect time to take a break from our fast-paced lives and make memories with loved ones. For nearly a century, the Peninsula name has embodied an elegant combination of tradition, glamour, innovation and unparalleled service. Today, this unrivaled mix ensures our hotels remain the ideal venue for celebrating the most important moments in life. 

To help our guests truly enjoy this festive season, The Peninsula Hotels has created a range of activities that will make celebrating this year’s holiday an experience they will never forget.

Celebrating Festive Traditions in a Digital Age
In support of children’s literacy, The Peninsula Hotels has also produced a digital storybook, entitled ‘The Nutcracker’s Adventure.’ Written for the whole family to enjoy, the book will be available to download from our festive web pages on a complimentary basis.

‘Stories from the Tree’
The festive season will be brought to life at each of our ten Peninsula hotels around the globe under the theme, ‘Stories from the Tree.’ Six colorful characters – including the nutcracker, gingerbread man and red-breasted robin – will adorn giant Christmas trees in each of our grand hotel lobbies, as well as the abundant decorations that will brighten each property.

The six characters will be available to purchase for guests’ own homes, with US$5 from each purchase being donated between Make-A-Wish Foundation and The New York Center for Children to help fund a new in-house library, complete with complimentary reading and tutoring sessions, after-school storytimes, literacy classes and more. The project will also be supported by Scholastic Books Inc.

Festive-themed Afternoon Tea packages will also be available to book, with a further US $5 being donated to the aforenamed charities from each sale.

Join us and kick off the holiday season on Tuesday, November 27 with a special Tree Lighting at Salon de Ning rooftop bar and terrace. Enjoy a live band, complimentary cocktails and light bites from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Following the Tree Lighting, stay and sip on holiday drinks while taking in the lights of Fifth Avenue, with 50% of the night’s sales benefiting Make-A-Wish Foundation and The New York Center for Children.
