Service, luxury, courtesy, warmth -- it's all here; as repeat guests we feel like family and friends being welcomed home. Always our first choice in the city, an oasis and a refuge. We will be back soon and often.
"Contemporary, no; Classic, YES"
We were taken in by the Plaza Athenee when the hotel we booked (near our medical visit location) was untenable. They were so helpful in having our room ready early and allowing a late checkout to help with a medical procedure on that day. As others have noted, this is a classic, upper east side boutique hotel, on a quiet street - a refuse from the hustle and bustle of NYC. If you are looking for contemporary hotel with a lot of buzz, this is probably not your place. But if you want quiet elegance and great service, you will not be disappointed. Room service breakfast was the best we have ever had -albeit at a hefty price. The standard room was very comfortable, but not large (it's NYC, so fair sized). The bed was very comfortable with lovely linens. The bath was adequate (single sink, however). We did not have any noise problems and certainly never heard our neighbors. We had an east view and only heard an occasional siren. Rick, our concierge, was great as were all the staff we interacted with. Housekeeping was great and we actually never saw them, just had a very clean room with fresh towels and attention to detail. The was just some great feeling here, hard to pinpoint or name other than to say classic and charming. If you are visiting some of the medical facilities on the UES, this is a great location and easy commute distance. Way above what else is available at a reasonable cost. When we have occasion to return to NYC this would definitely be a great choice for us. Many thanks to PA for making our stay so nice.
" A stay fit for a queen "
Want to feel like a queen in a palace ' Stay here. Pleasantly located between Park and Maddison avenues , this perfectly placed Hotel makes you feel like a true Yoper East side goddess. The location is superb. 1 block from a metro stop on Lexington and 1 block from Central Park. There is luxury shopping all around you and museums a finger stretch away. I loved staying in this location. Quiet and Convinient Check in : was elegantly handled. I was offered a very comfortable seat , and a few clicks and a swipe , I was being shown to my room through the elegant and luxurious lobby. The lobby itself is small but perfectly gorgeous. My room on the 9th floor , was an executive King room 907. There is some light coming in but it also a little dark and cozy. The room itself is very large and tasteful decorated. The king sized bed was heavenly and the bathroom is like a palace with marbles tub with gold fixtures , and a separate rain shower. The penhalagan soaps and lotion was something I could do without as I did not enjoy the scent. However , the following night I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice medium sized Bulgary shower soap The only Tiny missed detail was the refilling of the complimentary bottled water. And Maybe a few more lights in the bedroom to lighten it up. The doormen were all superbly eloquent and helpful. I was even offered the use of the house car to go to the Opera one night. I absolutely adored staying here and would do it again in a heart beat.
we had such a wonderful, romantic weekend get away!! Great location, close to great shopping and most importantly VERY CLEAN!!! We loved the bar! Rooms were classically decorated and lovely. The staff was wonderful! so accommodating and helpful with suggestions. Will absolutely return!!!!
