5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I was delighted with this hotel. The location, just off Central Park on the Eastside, was excellent for the museums as well as shopping. The staff could not have been more helpful. Warm, comfy and an oasis of quiet and calm in the bustling city.

The rooms, the service and the bar are all top notch. Ask for Gilbert at the bar, makes the best martinis and keeps the guests smiling. The rooms are what you would expect from a 5 star property, and the location on the mid to upper east is perfect. Short trip to David Burke or Arlington Grill. Highly recommend, and the spa is so good, I couldn't get a reservation, so book early!

the service at this hotel is wonderful as is the bar and dining room. our suite was quiet and quite large facing E 64th. convenient location and neighborhood not so crowded with tourists. the living room sofas cushions are kind of lumpy and not comfortable but otherwise the maintenance of the room is very good and clean.

now it really depends what style you like when it comes to decoration. the location of the hotel is amazing, directly next to madison avenue, none of the big nice hotels can offer you such an amazing location. the service is very good, friendly and helpful. the standard of the hotel is quite high but we just dont like the style so much. its the typical old decoration, very nice if you like the style but we like more modern hotels like the mandarin. we would come back to plaza athenee for sure, because it is still a lovely hotel and nothing tops the location but it is not our first choice.
i can still recommend the hotel to everyone because it definitely lives up to its reputation!

Hotel Athenee is a wonderful little gem of a hotel. My normal hotel was completely booked, and so I stayed with a group in a suite at Hotel Athenee. What a charming suprise! Unlike many uber modern hotels popping up around the world, Hotel Athenee captures the charm of the city by incorporating french decor, warm woods, and sparkling crystal light fixtures. Service is excellent and they are FRIENDLY!! It was a quick trip for me, and I needed a salon fix ASAP. They managed to connect me with Yann Varin, who came over from his Salon only a block or so away.

He is a superb stylist, but also an incredibly nice and diplomatic(no big name dropping here), and managed to get me ready in no time for a show during Fashion Week. Turns out he has a big celebrity client list, but you would never know this from his demeanor.

I don't know about the other rooms, but the suites were quite nice and quiet. Also, GREAT location for shopping!!

classic hotel great location in a residential neighbourhood feeling like living in a New York residence steps away from the Madison avenue. efficient early check-in, attentive staff and good breakfast. Rooms are OK but pricey and although some rooms claimed to be renovated there is nothing special. terrible HVAC system in the rooms. impossible to sleep when turned on as it sounds like a train. would stay again if and only catch a promotional price as there are better alternatives with the listed prices.
