This is a lovely boutique hotel. And though the building/guest rooms are a little older, this was one of the cleanest hotel rooms we have stayed in. Sometimes an older hotel = tired rooms, tired common areas and less than ideal cleanliness throughout but that was not the case here at all. The rooms themselves are nicely appointed. At our...

Exquisite stay from the moment I entered the small marble lobby enveloped in verdure tapestry wall coverings. The concierge was attentive and gracious and upgraded my room midweek. New York was frigid but the cozy,elegant bar was a welcome retreat everyday after braving the arctic gusts. The best of Madison shopping is just steps away - as was my appointment... More

Everything about the Plaza Athenee exceeded our expectations for a special long weekend in New York. Our room was spacious, tasteful and quiet, more so than other luxury hotels we have stayed at in the city. The staff really cared and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The fitness center was a pleasant surprise... More

I stayed with my family, including my 3 children. No one in the entire hotel (except maybe one doorman, Angel) was ever really friendly or helpful. No one goes the extra mile for you, as you would expect in a hotel of this price and category. No one ever greeted us when we came or went, no special anything for... More

A recent trip confirmed my view that this is my favourite hotel in NYC. Although the rooms are smallish and some are a little tired, the service and food are impeccable - its clear that many of the well heeled clientele who stay here are repeat guests. Location is wonderful and because it is relatively small you feel like you... More

A smaller hotel located between Park and Madison on 64th Street, this was my second visit to the Athenee. It is this consistent, great level offering some of the finest food at their Arabelle dining room in mid-town Manhattan that keeps me coming back.

By virtue of the fact that you are reading this review, you are probably not a prospective customer of this hotel. Let's get to the facts: this is an older building, the elevators old, the room decor (at least in the room that I had) was old-style, and their approach to hoteling clearly from a bygone era. And that is... More

Plaza Athenee is in a great location, with great rooms and great service. It tends to be a bit less expensive than the better known other five star hotels like the Four Seasons but the rooms and service are every bit as good. Treat yourself to being well-treated in this very conveniently located Manhattan hotel.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
