This is a very lovely boutique hotel in New York. Quiet, well-appointed and service oriented. The sheets and bedding were amazing. We enjoyed our stay here. Only trouble was our bill at check out had errors but I think my husband was able to sort it out with them.

We stayed in a large room in need of refurbishment. The bathroom was extremely old fashioned. Every other aspect of the hotel was good - room service, gym, reception, concierge, location on upper east side [by the park] were all excellent. The hotel was quiet and we had great sleeps - impressive for NYC! We had complimentary Wi-Fii, which might... More

Over the years my wife and I have stayed at a number of fine NYC hotels, but this was our first time at this hotel, which was urged on us by our travel agent, and she was absolutely right.

Close proximity to Daniel is important. And the park love my morning jogs. My favorite room is the large grand deluxe room. When I am traveling for work or just my husband and I we stay here. It's nice, small, superb service, wonderful beds and big bathrooms with double sinks and separate large tub and shower is important to me.... More

Excellent location, great room and bathroom and staff efficient and friendly. Just a pitty that they charge $ 16.95 a day for in room Wi-Fi (we are in 2014, no?) and I discovered the day I left that capuccino that the waiter proposed each morning, between "coffee and orange juice" was not included in the package breakfast.

For those of you who enjoy afternoon tea I suggest a departure from the overdone, overpriced, and average service at the Plaza. Quiet, calm and impeccable service I encourage this quiet spot on the upper east side for warm scones and fragrant heartwarming tea. Go with friends, your significant other or treat yourself to a lovely afternoon.

Very much enjoyed the hotel. It is a boutique hotel and easy to get to the rooms. Lobby is very nice - not opulent. The room was the largest we have seen in a NYC hotel (non-suite room). The hotel would merit a 5 star (or five circles?) except for the following: Bathroom is a bit small, prices for meals... More

This is a very pricy retreat from the hustle and bustle of Madison, Park, and Lexington, Avenue, and is steps away from central park. The entrée is botanical. As you walk in you're looking at a wall mural of the wilderness at the foot of the Acropolis in Athens, but the accessories are French. The suite features scenes of the... More

From check-in to check-out, my one night stay at the Plaza Athenee was superb. I arrived very early and my room was not yet cleaned.
