The Plaza New York

Midtown, New York

Virgin rating

The hotel

Feel like you’ve been here before? You have, in the movies anyway. From Home Alone 2 and Bride Wars, to Sleepless in Seattle, the location has proved a blockbuster backdrop for some firm film favourites. The Plaza certainly lives up to its name, and being a National Historic Landmark it’s full of old-world elegance and grandeur. Just south of Central Park, there’s plenty of places to eat and drink right on your doorstep, but some of the hotel’s own restaurants are not to be missed. And not forgetting the aptly named Champange Bar, where you can sip on some bubbles whilst looking out on Fifth Avenue and The Pulitzer Fountain.

We finally got in for high tea after trying so many times and the scarcity of reservations probably served to boost our expectations too high.

We finally got in for high tea after trying so many times and the scarcity of reservations probably served to boost our expectations too high. The room, while beautiful, has very tight seating which is a little alarming during a pandemic. The tightness of seating, large volume of people, and acoustics, makes for a very loud and harried experience which really runs cross-purpose of a high tea. Another simply shocking element is the fact that the restrooms are located on the floor above and the women’s room has only two stalls which creates a long line of frustrated women waiting outside and occasionally commandeering the Men’s room. The tea was good and the sandwiches and sweets were average. Read less

Dream come true experience from start to finish. The Plaza staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. This was my families first visit to New York City and it was an all around unforgettable experience. We will definitely be staying here, should we visit NY again!
