This place has been in renovations for some time now (2-3 years), yet the lobby still the same with the same dirty carpet at the entrance, same spots on the chairs, same stuffy attitude of believeing they are at the real Plaza Athenne of paris (no relation), and the rooms were probably rennovated from 1885 to a fresher look of...

We stayed here about 15 years ago, and decided to stay again recently primarily because of the position, ideal for shopping, and reasonable priced compared to other in the vicinity. Unfortunately, that is as far as my positives for it extend. Everything about it is past the point of 'shabby chic' to just plain shabby. Even the staff, while very... More

Stayed here around 3 times and the rooms were nice, also convenient to go anywhere in NYC. The restaurant could be brighter and the reception could be quicker, but usually they have alor of VIP guests and delegates coming to the UN, so that is expected.

Very welcoming hotel in a quiet area of Manhattan. Quite close to metro stations for ease of travel if you are not adverse to buzzing about underground to see all the sites. In my mind this is the only way to travel in this city, so long as you are dressed to walk and not for a posh evening out!... More

My boyfriend and I live in the city and decided to pop into the bar for an evening snack and a drink. While the service was pleasant and the atmosphere was beautiful, I wish I could turn back time. I made the mistake of ordering a simple salad that had a mozzarella cheese with it. Dear God, I am literally... More

Dear Guest, It is most unfortunate to hear of your recent poisoning incident. As soon I read your comments, I immediately looked into this matter. While some of our culinary offerings include various cheeses, we do not offer or serve mozzarella cheese. We have not been made aware of any other incidents, despite many cheese selections ordered during this month... More

Having stayed at the Plaza Athenee in the past, I can vouch for its ability to maintain the Old World style that sophisticated travelers demand. The service is stellar. The rooms are spacious but somewhat dated. But the refusal to update is part of the charm imbued in the European tradition.

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.
