"Excellent Hotel and Great Locations!"
Stayed at this beautiful hotel for two nights. The service and location is excellent. Staff is very helpful! Would definitely stay here again. Location is very convenient. Close to Central Park and lots of great restaurants nearby.
The proximity to Central Park, the friendly staff, in-room facilities, cleanliness, great dining made for an enjoyable two night stay in late April. So much within a short distance. Small (142 rooms) property, 17 floors, built in 1927. Decent value considering great location and high standards. Recommend w/o hesitation.
"Dayuse.com room great fun...super experience"
My BFF is moving to FLA from NYC and we never have time to catch up and just chill...we are both on the road for our jobs all the time...so we treated ourselves to a "luxury girlfriends day" booking the hotel room for the day....had a blast at the Spa and enjoyed room service and facials was just amaaaazing....we only had to spend $250 for a luxurious room for the day...plus the extras like our truffled eggs benedict and hampagne mimosas....then we headed downstairs to VALMONT spa for the best facials and massages in years (trust me ...I am over 50 so I know of what I speak...if you get a facial do request Miranda Sturce she was THE.BEST.EVER!!!!!!!!! Too bad we did not see Tom Selleck...they film Blue Bloods there and we were hoping against hope to see him in the bar later when we headed down for adult frosty beverages....sublime Dayuse experience...
"Highly Disappointing Afternoon Tea"
Just had afternoon tea earlier at the Hotel Plaza Athenee, celebrating a friend's upcoming baby, and I was truly disappointed. While the staff, the room and the company were lovely, those were really the only positive aspects of the meal. The sandwiches and pastries took almost an hour to arrive at our table. About 40 minutes in, a member of the waitstaff did acknowledge the delay, but chalked it up to having sandwiches which were "made from scratch". When the food finally arrived, it was completely unimpressive, and quite frankly, just not good. Of the assorted (bite sized) sandwiches (salmon, curried egg salad, roast beef, cucumber, honey with macadamia, shrimp salad), the only palatable one was the egg salad. The pastries were even more disappointing, and the clotted cream for the scones was unattractively plunked into a bowl, looking like grotesque blobs of pale butter. Quite frankly, at $55 a person, this was a giant rip off. If you're looking for a nice afternoon tea, there are FAR better options in NYC. Would not recommend at all.
"Beautiful, European hotel in great location"
We had the pleasure of spending a night at this hotel. We were warmly greeted as we arrived by the doorman and check-in was at a desk instead of standing at a counter. We are members of Leading Hotels of the World and were given an upgraded room, which was very nice and comfortable. The room and bathroom were well appointed with all of the amenities. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The bar and dining room are beautiful, with both an elegant and relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed breakfast which was delicious but expensive. The servers were very attentive. We also liked the location of being near Central Park and the high end stores, while also being able to walk to the theater district. We very impressed with how the staff handled a mistake by Leading a Hotels when booking the reservation. They took care of it immediately! The only minor complaint was that they didn't deliver the newspaper to our room and we ran out of toilet paper and there was no replacement in the room. However, these are very minor compared to the beautiful hotel, outstanding service, great location, and all around wonderful experience! We hope to return soon!
