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.

Had a great time at The plaza, came in from Los Angeles to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Teak and Omar took great care of us. They went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable and welcome. The Plaza is our number 1 choice in NYC.

The atmosphere, food and service are exactly what you would expect from The Plaza. Any other afternoon tea falls far short of this experience. If you make no other dining plans while visiting this area just make sure to book afternoon tea here!

House keeping did a great job freshening up our room everyday and the concierge helped us find food locally for the kids. They even placed the orders for us. Our two children had a wonderful time. My daughter especially enjoyed the Elouise store on the lower level of the hotel, while our son enjoyed the room service and our close proximity to local attractions. The Plaza is iconic for a reason. The service is impeccable, the architecture is one of a kind and the location next to Central Park is amazing. Read less
