"Superior Service in a Classic Setting"
The hotel offers a quintessential NYC experience from the gilded age with lavish rooms, comfortable beds, and extraordinary service. Guest will not want for attentive staff. The location makes most of mid-town and the Park walkable while providing some seclusion from the hustle and noise of the main streets.
"Great weekend stay"
My wife and I decided to spend a nice autumn weekend in New York City. We selected the Plaza Athenee for its location on the upper east side near Central Park. We arrived early, and to no surprise, were told that our room was not ready. We left our bags with the bellman and left to eat lunch and wander around Central Park. When we returned to the hotel several hours later, we were told our room was still not ready. Without hesitation we were whisked off to the bar and given complimentary drinks. We had barely taken our first sip when we were told our room was now ready. The room was on an upper floor with a nice view to the north and a partial view of Central Park to the west. The room was very clean and nicely furnished with "vintage" furnishings. The bathroom was likewise very clean and had equally "vintage" fixtures. The king bed was awesome. We had a fantastic, undisturbed sleep. Breakfast is expensive. The bill for two came to nearly $100. We were even charged $10 extra for coffee refills. The food was good, if not excellent. However, in light of the price, there are many other options in every direction for a far less expensive breakfast. This is not a new, modern hotel. This does not detract from staying here in the least. In fact, sometimes it's nice and comforting to stay in a "vintage" hotel. We would not hesitate to stay at the Plaza Athenee on our next weekend in New York City.
"The Best of the Upper East"
If you are looking for a hotel in a quiet neighborhood and yet walking distance to Central Park, try Hotel Plaza Athenee. This is one hotel that is true to luxury. I have been to a few in this city and have been disappointed. This hotel provides the spaciousness and luxury expected or a New York hotel. The staff is friendly and polite.
"Quiet and Refined"
Small and intimate, refined and reserved in style, on a relatively quiet street, the hotel is a pleasant oasis whether you are traveling for business or pleasure. Service is personal and pleasant, food choice and quality as one would expect for a traditional luxury hotel. The property is slightly faded with paint work showing signs of wear and tear in places. Bedroom furnishings are comfortable with an emphasis on Browns, beiges with a splash of gilt. My bathroom had nice marble fixtures but no walk-in shower, only a tub that reminded me in size and character of an old Holiday Inn.
"As It Should Be"
The hotel is a gem in a wonderful neighborhood. The staff are well trained and know how to make a guest feel welcome and cared for. A special thanks to Steve who manages the bar and dinning room for his attention to service. He made us feel welcome every time we entered. Rick, the concierge assisted us with our sightseeing and airport transportation. The room was comfortable and quiet with a great bathroom and a very large closet. Enjoyed walking the neighborhood and finding the local restaurants and coffee cafes. Worth the price!
