We reserved 2 rooms for four nights and paid in advance. Just prior to our trip, I read a particularly scathing review on Trip Advisor and was very very concerned that our family celebration would be a bust! My concerns were completely unfounded. This is a lovely, elegant, small hotel. All of the staff, from the porters and housekeepers to... More

On arrival at our room, there were chocolate covered strawberries as a gift from... More

A thing I really didn't like about this hotel was the check-out time was absolutely rigid. One pm doesn't mean one ten. Actually I booked this hotel from an internet service... More

We have been to Manhattan many times and stayed in different neighbourhoods and hotels. This one tops the list. Why? I believe the philosophy of the place makes the difference.Rick Cook, chief concierge epitomises this; knowledgeable, helpful, efficient and friendly. There is a genuine attitude reflected in most staff that guests are to be treated with friendliness and respect. It's... More

I made reservations for a one-night stay at the Plaza Athenee and was excited to stay at such a nice hotel as part of our weekend in NYC to celebrate my husband's birthday. I even called them in advance to tell them about the occasion & find out how they could surprise my husband. After discussing a few options, the... More

The prime location also makes the Athenee the perfect place to stay during the U.S. Open or for Fashion Week. With a major renovation completed in 2010, every room has been individually designed to bring out the best in the space. Many guest-rooms evoke a European townhouse feel. Others are more daring with modern styling, and even then other rooms, like the Thai Suite have allowed designers to tap into the same inspiration to travel that our guests arrive with. Many suites feature glass-enclosed terraces and outdoor balconies with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. The hotel is known for providing personalized, attentive service. We're proud to say that we know many of our guests personally, and love seeing faces both familiar and new.
