Classic Upper East Side boutique famous for its European grandeur, detail-oriented service, and celebrity clientele one block from Central Park
Maybe it’s the setting on a brownstone-lined street, but even though there are more than 140 rooms here, the Plaza Athenee New York manages to feel more like a residential luxury townhouse than in a New York hotel. This is Beaux Arts style at its finest: all rich fabrics, marble bathrooms, Sferra Italian bed linens, gold Paul Garnier clocks. And while it might be pricey—celebs keeping a low profile love this place—the location is unbeatable for any who want to take advantage of Madison Avenue shopping, Central Park strolling, and convenient services like babysitting and dry cleaning. The intimate lobby is the antithesis of giant corporate hotel lobbies, decorated with sculptures, murals, and antique writing desks in the place of check-in counters. Arabelle is the place to be come nightfall, where updated classics like shrimp cocktail and oysters Rockefeller are served under a gold-domed ceiling and Murano chandeliers.
In the Area
The Upper East Side location is hard to beat. The hotel is a single tree-lined block from Central Park, walking distance from the three Bs—Bloomingdale’s, Barneys, and Bergdorf Goodman—and just a minute from the galleries, museums, and designer stores of Madison Avenue. Four of the city’s best museums are within walking distance (the Frick, the MoMA, the Guggenheim, and the Met) as are the Rockefeller Center and Broadway.
