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.
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.
How to Get There
Me and my friends go every year to the Plaza and Muhibul is so amazing. He is a great server and is on top of everything. He gave me great life advice and should definitely get a promotion. I love Muhibul.
We did not stay at The Plaza but have heard so much about it that we had to go see it. It truly is beautiful and hopefully one day we will stay there at this hotel to enjoy all it offers on a future NYC trip.
We splurged on the Elouise Suite for our first trip to NYC and Ray the Butler turned an already impressive experience into a magical one that we will never forget. Highly recommend The Plaza and tea. Fabulous.
We visited The Plaza for High Tea at their restaurant "Palm Court", the experience is a must!
All staff were more than accommodating and more than welcoming. Our server Kazi made our experience such a memorable one. He was very welcoming, professional and made our experience one that will always be remembered (plus he has really good photography skills too! We asked him to take a photo of us and they turned out fantastic!)
The food, tea and champagne at the high tea was impeccable.
While visiting New York, highly recommend you visit The Palm Court at The Plaza for high tea to top off your NYC experience!
I arrived at the hotel after a long travel day and Buddy Rubino was so welcoming. I was early and not expecting to be able to get into my room, but he was able to get me in and he also got my a wonderful view which I was so grateful for. Had a wonderful stay. Thanks Buddy.
