"The best in NYC in my experience"
From the moment I arrived, I was so beautifully welcomed and accommodated. The team, led by OMAR ELNEWISHY, not only met my expectations but exceeded them. I had a beautifully appointed room, with lovely views. I got great recommendations for the simple things...best bagels, best pizza...all remarkable.
"Old Fashioned Comfort"
Good, convenient location on the Upper East Side, with friendly courteous staff and good-sized rooms, however in desperate need of a renovation. My room was very dark, worn and dated, and I was slightly troubled to find a large wet spot in the carpet upon arrival. Thinking it was perhaps left over rug shampoo/cleaning I alerted the front desk who kindly said they would address. When I returned three hours later it was still soaked through in the large area and I called again; housekeeping came 30 minutes later and explained they couldn't do anything about the dampness and simply put a hand towel over the area to cover it. I was surprised at the overall lack of concern. The walls are also extremely thin and one can hear entire conversations of neighboring rooms.
"Lovely more quiet hotel."
I visited the Plaza Athenee several times. It is an older hotel in a lovely part of the city less touristy. I would say Plaza Athenee is an hotel for New Yorkers or people who know well the city. Its huge advantage are its much bigger than average rooms. It is definitely a plus compared to teh hotels mid-town, it has also a charming atmosphere. However, if you don't know NY well, it might be a little bit far from the touristy spots. It is close to Madison Av, and Central Park, but stuck between Lex and Park, you are uncertain where to go when you come out from it.
" Good, but not a great"
Great location close to central park. Very nice staff. Property is in good shape considering it is an old classic building. All good, but ... kind of boring. Outdated and a little bit too old school for my taste. I can't complain as everything was impeccable, but the city has plenty of more updated and exciting hotel options.
"I forgot to name the manager and others"
Albert is the manager and I simply adore him. Also Chan who helped me every step of the way and to Rick, who I've known forever and all the others who my friend Keenan knows by name. I also need to add that the new chef is heavenly and I had three great meals a day, something you usually do not hear from a type 1 diabetic! Great people here. Special thanks for Victoria with whom I had fun planning great meals.
