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 had the pleasure to be attended to by a wonderful man named Shalim. Attentive, funny & overall charming. Shalim made the entire experience of high tea feel like it was a special occasion. I cannot recommend him highly enough to all who come to the Plaza.

I recently stayed at The Plaza with my young daughter for her first trip to NYC. I could not have imagined a more magical experience from start to end - and such a warm, welcoming, and accommodating team to welcome us. Such an amazing stay - thank you!

Server was very very very nice and sweet. All the servers and employees were very willing and understanding with our allergies and needs and their customer service felt very personal and was phenomenal. I would highly recommend going here. You feel like royalty and it honestly feels like a dream.

The service was a 10/10. So was the food. Everything was absolutely exquisite. Thank you specifically to Mr. Fariz Tello, he was very attended to our concerns. I have decided that if I am ever as rich as my grandparents this hotel is where I want to spend my retired days.
