The Plaza Hotel

New York, USA

The hotel

Feel like you’ve been here before? You have, in the movies anyway! The Plaza has provided the location for many motion pictures and rightly so, because it’s stunning. In fact, it’s one of America’s most celebrated hotels as well as a National Historic Landmark. Newly renovated rooms and suites are the height of old-world elegance, although you’ll find the very latest in technology at your disposal, including HD TV and in-room iPads! They also boast the largest square footage of any luxury hotel in New York City. Add to the mix 24-hour butler service for all suite guests and you can see why this is such a treasure! In a great downtown location, some of the finest eateries are on-site, including The Palm Court, the city’s iconic destination for afternoon tea for more than 100 years! The Todd English Food Hall is also incredible, offering a true dine-around experience among nine diverse food stations – there’s the pasta bar, the sushi bar, the noodle & dumpling bar and many, many more. Every day spent in New York is special so why not celebrate with a glass of champagne? With views over Fifth Avenue, sip on the world’s finest champagne, caviar and wines at the aptly named Champagne Bar, an experience that is as indulgent as it is unforgettable.

And it was worth it. Pampered for three days. Location can't be beat. Everyone so nice. We felt like we were their only guests.We attended a wedding and the entire event - which used multiple rooms - was perfect.

My family and I went to the Plaza for tea. I have allergies, and they were very accommodating. The food was very good, and at the end of the afternoon, we received many gifts including postcards, pens, and cotton candy.

I Always stay at the Plaza or a Business trip in June. Rooms are large, but a bit old fashioned. Service is outstanding and the breakfast Restaurant is also good. The Concierge is outstanding, in particular I'd like to single out Hatsumi for praise.

Went to the food court at the plaza after a tour, great selection, very fancy, some food is more expensive than others. Great spot to stop and refresh yourself on a hot day! A very busy location but great location near Central Park and fifth avenue. Bathrooms had a long line but very clean.

We stayed for a few nights a couple of weeks ago for our Honeymoon and it was amazing! I had read a couple of reviews that said this hotel was outdated and old fashioned but this could not be further from the truth so please don't let them put you off! This hotel is full of history and character, they have all the modern conveniences but have kept the original style and decor. If you want a modern style, minimalist hotel with grey furnishings then there will be hundreds available in New York but if you want a hotel full of elegance, style and class then choose the Plaza, you won't be disappointed! We got an upgrade for our Honeymoon stay and was sent up some champagne and chocolate covered strawberries when we arrived which was a lovely start to a special holiday. We will definitely stay again. Read less
