“Complete tranquility on the Upper East Side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

From check in to getting into the cab back to the airport our stay at the Plaza Athenee was perfection.

We celebrated our anniversary in NYC and he hotel made our stay memorable, from the personal greetings to chocolate dipped strawberries - all fantastic.
Room was grand and bathroom was beautiful. Plenty of storage and good amenities too.
Probably the best sleeps I've had in NYC in over 30 visits.

Situated on the quiet E64th street between Madison & Park the location is perfect for a walk into Central Park or getting the bus down 5th Ave. 59th Street on the 4,5,6 line has an express platform stop so you can get all the way downtown (or way uptown) in super quick time. You will also find the F train right around the block another line taking through the heart of midtown to Macy's doorsteps then onto LES and Brooklyn.

Its hard to say you feel at home in a hotel but here we did. No hassles, just understated perfection all round.

For the right deal I would instantly stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little bit more for a larger room, worth every penny folks!

We were greeted personally by Sebastian the GM who was professional, warm & down to earth.
The Hotel was charming & elegant with super service & a Boutique style.
It was my Wife's 50th Birthday & we were upgraded to a magnificent suite over looking a stunning tree lined street. A chocolate cake was delivered to add an extra special touch.
Room service was excellent, food delicious, hot & quickly delivered.

Rick the concierge was outstanding, booking us the " Taste of Harlem Tour" which was a highlight of our trip; he also assisted us with other reservations etc - nothing was too much.
Over all we would highly recommend this Hotel for service & location.

Room Tip: Request a room at the front of the Hotel for a quiet street view.

We were very impressed with the calibre of this hotel. We stayed for nearly a week and were extremely comfortable. The fit out of the room was tasteful and fresh and quite spacious with a little entrance hallway. Service was consistently professional and friendly with a European flavour. And as for the location? Just wonderful. Being between 2 avenues is so quiet and this is a very convenient upper East location with excellent restaurants nearby. Ask the fabulous concierge Rick for recommendations. They were faultless.

This was a very nice hotel, but not quite the 5-star luxury I was expecting. It is a small, quiet boutique hotel, which is great if you want a more private, homey vibe, but I missed the grander scale of hotels like The Plaza and the buzzy nightlife of The Carlyle. Rooms are hit or miss. I received a triple-upgrade to a Deluxe room, which was wonderful with a huge marble foyer and double closets! However, my dad supposedly received the same upgrade, yet his room was smaller and much more average, nothing fancy. Bar Seine is very cozy and offers yummy food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, I didn't think the high prices were justified for a relatively casual bar/lounge setting. The one exception is their Afternoon Tea- you get a LOT of food, especially desserts! The location of this hotel is one of it's greatest assets, in the heart of the Upper East Side while at the same time walking distance to midtown- and with Chanel a few doors down! Overall, I recommend it if you're looking for a more genteel, quiet place to stay as opposed to a grand deluxe landmark like the Plaza or Carlyle (sorry to keep namedropping those two, they're just my faves!)

Everything about this jewel of a hotel met my expectations and beyond....from being upgraded to a beautiful suite with immaculate furnishing and fittings, to the wonderful staff who would do anything for you.... i used to stay at the Plaza Hotel but Plaza Athenee makes that hotel look like a 3 star!!!

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants the best in service and the location is superb. The friendliness and professionalism if everyone was amazing. I checked out very early, around 5am, they were most helpful, even going to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, which was impressive and appreciated, especially since it was before morning coffee service. If you are on the upper wast side, make this your hotel of choice.

Can't say enough good things about our time at the Plaza Athenee. We stayed there for 4 days in March (cold weather) and it couldn't have been better. The general manager Sebastian was attentive and took spectacular care of my wife and mother in law during their stay.

The hotel itself is quiet, classy, and in a great location. It's far enough upper east to be slightly removed from the noise, but south enough that you're very close to all the action. Also the suites are spacious, very well appointed, and the staff was superb.

If you're doing an Upper East Side trip, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Spring for a suite, it's beautiful
