Enjoyed the beautiful French style property. Great service and spacious rooms. Wonderful amenities and outstanding location not far from the shops of Madison Avenue, as well as some great restaurants on the UES. A winner.

I stayed at the hotel this past weekend with friends. The hotel staff was so helpful and friendly. The room was perfect. Comfortable amenities, the shower and tub were very nice. Everything was very clean and PS the lattes we had to go from the restaurant Sunday morning were excellent! We didn't have time to do high tea or any... More

Given the fabled reputation, our stay with the Plaza Athene was nothing short of disappointing. Although the location is great, this is a very tired and dated hotel. The rooms are cramped and miniscule, the lighting is inadequate and the closet is a joke. Even the bathroom is useless as it has next to no storagee space. A five star... More

Location: further up north than where we would usually stay, however this was perfect as it is much quieter. Rooms: ok sized rooms with TV, fridge and free WiFi (but a bit slow), however rooms are pretty dark and a bit old fashioned. Bathrooms are tiny compared to other 4&5 star hotels we've stayed in NYC. Good bathroom products and... More

The hotel was recommended by some friends and I was presently surprised. This is a little gem of a hotel. Classic old style hotel experience. The staff was very responsive and diligent. The food and dining areas are great. The suites are 2 rooms with a lot of privacy. The bathrooms and amenities are above average for an older hotel... More

Compared with many other 5 star places that I know I believe the Plaza Athenee is not really in the same league. First they need some renovation. I do believe the place is clean but I did not feel like it was. The restaurant is very near the lobby and there is some ventilation problem or at least there was... More

the hotel is like a trip to a past where courtesy, respect, education and politeness where highly taken into account. the breakfast is like being in a play. all the waiters treats you as an old and frequent customer. the room is a place to remember and to miss when you leave.

Charming traditional hotel and excellent location. Staff were helpful and accommodation is rather spacious. Design is very classic, expect marble overload, this carpet and cristal chandelier at every corner. There was a little kitchenette area in my room above the minibar which looked a little old but I guess could be practical for long stay. Ask for a room on... More

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.
