To begin with we were able to use the Fairmont card free nights (2 nights per card for my wife and I) at the Plaza for four free nights during the US Open. We were booked on the fifth floor where you have an outdoor patio with two nice padded lounge chairs. One day we fell asleep on those chairs in the middle of Manhattan which was great. My workout clothes, shoes and socks were in the room which is complimentary with the Fairmont club membership you get with the credit card, you also get free Internet which runs $14.95 a day otherwise.
Once we got the the room the butler showed up to introduce himself and deliver several Fiji waters. He handed us his card and offered to unpack our clothes, get us a drink, whatever. After a long day at the Open on day two my wife and I were a little tired and sore, I pulled out the butlers card called the hotel and asked if they could draw a bath for us to be ready at 11:30pm. They said absolutely and would I prefer bubbles or bath salts and if I needed anything else. The tub is huge by the way so it took some time to fill I'm sure. That was the way any call and any request was answered "absolutely and is there anything else you need Mr. ...".
We loved the look and feel of the place, old world elegance, stately, refined and regal. It made you feel special when you walked in the lobby and down the hall. The rooms had high ceilings, large baths, comfortable chairs, and the patio was awesome.
The proximity to Central Park, Fifth Avenue shopping, great restaurants and the upper east side is the best. I highly recommend Sarabeths for brunch and Quality Meats for the best steak you will find anywhere. These places are both a block or less from the Plaza and are both highly rated places to eat.
I highly recommend The Plaza, and if you can get the deal we did its an absolute dream trip to NYC.
