3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

I stayed in this hotel during my last visit to New York. The hotel is perfectly situated, but quite old. Yes, reception is lovely and my room also (if you like the heavy curtained, old castle look) but I found that for the price you pay I would expect a bathroom without shower curtains and no shower in the bath...

We have just returned from staying at this highly rated, well appointed and perfectly situated hotel. All the positive reviews on the rooms, the decor, and the staff are well deserved but in my opinion, they fell short in a couple of areas that left us disappointed. This is a hotel that clearly prides itself on setting itself apart on... More

This is a smaller, very club-like hotel on the Upper East Side on quiet, leafy 64th between Madison and Park. It has more rooms than a typical boutique hotel but feels like one. This is an "older" hotel with quite a bit of gold decor in the lobby, which is tiny. Location is terrific for museums, shopping and Midtown. I... More

The best part of the hotel is the location - that's why you will pay $500+++ per night. It's on 64th between Park and Madison - ideal for shopping, business, restaurants. Check-in: Relatively quick and painless. Lobby: Very small lobby with limited seating. I'm not sure this place would be a good choice for anyone with limited mobility - there... More

Don't be put off by the scaffolded entry, and relatively small and unpreposessing lobby, this is a first rate hotel. I checked in early, before my room was ready. Check in occurs at a very small desk, which I though was actually a cloak room. My bags were taken and I was told would be delivered to the room when... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Plaza Athenee for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Only a few minutes walk from Central Park which was a real perk for us each morning. The room was spacious (we stayed in a Superior King Room) and nicely decorated. Very comfortable bed, good powerful shower and lots of hanging spaces in... More

A very nice boutique type hotel. Personnel are fabulous. Decor is nice. The hotel is old, but kept up pretty well (a number of outlets didn't work, toiltet and tub had some issues as well). Not a tremendous room but roomy enough for the two of us. We stayed three consecutive weekends while our daughter was hospitalized and they were... More

My husband and I stayed in suite 1411 for three nights. The rooms are beautifully decorated with aesthetically pleasing as well as functional items. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were spotless. The bathroom had separate shower and deep-soaking tub with lovely bath salts and loofah. Service levels at all points were superb: the smiling and quick doorman... More

Beautiful hotel with very gracious staff in a fabulous location. Quite expensive, but such a pleasure! I was in town to attend an event in Central Park, and I could easily walk there. When I arrived, I was in need of a massage, so I called the spa and got an immediate appointment with an excellent therapist in a private,... 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.
