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

My partner and I travelled to New York in April and Hotel Plaza Athenee was simply superb. From reception to check-out, the hospitality was exemplary. Our room was immaculate and spacious, with elegant soft yellow and marble decor. The dimly-lit and cozy bar downstairs is an excellent spot for a nightcap, and the morning coffee in the lobby was a... More

Upon recommendation from our travel agent we spent 5 days here in June. It was lovely, very pricey, but lovely. I feel like, although the location was great, a few blocks from Central Park, in a quiet neighborhood, it may have been too far out of the way for our first visit. It was a trek to get anywhere.
