It's been a while since we travelled to New York City so this was our first hotel experience there for a few years. I'm sure there are less expensive places to stay, but we loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar is a bit small - but comfortable - and the restaurant was very good. I... More

Perfect location, always very pleased with all the staff, they are very helpful specially the concierge who help me to book some very nice restaurants. They have a bar and restaurant that can use some more light, overall my favorite place to stay in NY.

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.

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.
