We have just come back from one amazing and very special night at the Plaza Athenee. We stayed in Paris for 4 nights, 3 nights at a more reasonably priced hotel and one night there, a Christmas present for my wife and I (and our young daughter). The choice of hotel was heavily influenced by my wife being a big fan of Sex and the City.
We compared to our stay at the Plaza Athenee to a night we had spent at the Hotel de Crillon (also in Paris), and two nights at the Plaza in New York. Two hotels of roughly similar price, and two hotels that also have amazing rooms, exceptional decor throughout, fantastic locations, incredible food etc. Thus the difference comes down to the service.
At Hotel de Crillon apart from the room service, the rest of the service was very ordinary, we even felt at times we were annoying the staff.
At the Plaza in NY the service was ok, but it feel like we should be feeling honoured to be staying there.
The Plaza Athenee staff by contrast to my review title, made us feel special. From the moment you arrive to when you unfortunately have to leave at every point the service was exceptional and felt personal, it as my wife said "felt like we were important to the staff".
My wife and I are already counting down to our next special occasion.
