Overview

Old World luxury and white glove service delight at one of New York’s most fabled hotels.

The Look

At the southeast corner of Central Park, the Plaza Hotel epitomizes refined luxury. With its noble French chateau façade, glossy marble floors, twinkling crystal chandeliers and Louis XVI–style furniture, a stay here is anything but ordinary. The hotel’s extensive renovation wrapped up in 2008 and brought the interiors into the 21st century, but the legendary 21-story building still retains the grandeur and charm that has been wowing guests since its opening in 1907.

Bed & Bath

This grande dame’s 282 guestrooms are elegant and commodious, starting at 475 square feet and featuring Beaux-Arts-inspired decor, wainscoted walls and crystal chandeliers. Kingsize beds are bedecked in plush Italian linens and down comforters and backed by off-white leather headboards. Although the hotel’s overall aesthetic harks back to the past, creature comforts such as iPads, iPod docking stations and 42-inch flat-screen televisions can be found in each room. The spa-like bathrooms are done floor to ceiling with pearl-white and honey-mustard mosaic tile, and guests are pampered with gold-plated Sherle Wagner faucets, marble vanities and Caudalie toiletries.

Beyond

The dimly lit Rose Club overlooks the marble-clad lobby and swank Champagne Bar, and it offers live jazz on Wednesday evening (best enjoyed with a Bloody Mary and a bite from the Epicurean menu). But the crown jewel of this hotel is the Palm Court (which served as a setting for scenes in The Great Gatsby), with its ornate stained glass ceiling and stately columns framing the room; be sure to stop here for afternoon tea, and try the New Yorker or Eloise varieties. Other services include a world class Caudalie Spa, Warren Tricomi Salon, 12 retail outlets and a food hall with such delish destinations as Luke’s Lobster, Lady M Cake Boutique and Sushi of Gari.

Was very impressed with even a basic room

I booked a pretty vanilla room (Plaza King with courtyard view) which easily surpassed some of the deluxe or premium rooms of other NYC hotels in its category. The huge bathroom alone made the stay worthwhile; it was like having my own private spa.

The location, service, quality of finishings, linens and extras are all top notch. I loved having the food hall downstairs. The variety of options is overwhelming and I found it a great place to grab a bite any time of day.

No complaints with my stay at the Plaza. I only wish it were still part of the Fairmont Presidents Club. Ever since Accor took over I've had nothing but trouble with my loyalty account. Despite my numerous stays at the Savoy and now the Plaza, it still says I have zero points and Siver status. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"Amazing afternoon tea"
Reviewed 2 days ago

The hotel is beautiful inside and the dining room for the afternoon Tea was lovely. The staff and service was amazing and the food was so good. There was so much food, we had to take some cakes home with us. It was my daughter's 21st Birthday and complimentary macaroons were provided with a candle which was a nice touch. We enjoyed a glass if champagne with the afternoon Tea and this is a real treat and great for a special occasion.

Excellent location, across from Central Park. Food Mall in lower level was a delight. Fine shopping as well, Louis Vuitton, Saks fifth Avenue, etc. across from Hotel. Simply a very nice area of Manhattan to stay.
