From the moment I arrived, I was so beautifully welcomed and accommodated. The team, led by OMAR ELNEWISHY, not only met my expectations but exceeded them. I had a beautifully appointed room, with lovely views. I got great recommendations for the simple things...best bagels, best pizza...all remarkable.

Good, convenient location on the Upper East Side, with friendly courteous staff and good-sized rooms, however in desperate need of a renovation. My room was very dark, worn and dated, and I was slightly troubled to find a large wet spot in the carpet upon arrival. Thinking it was perhaps left over rug shampoo/cleaning I alerted the front desk who... More

I visited the Plaza Athenee several times. It is an older hotel in a lovely part of the city less touristy. I would say Plaza Athenee is an hotel for New Yorkers or people who know well the city. Its huge advantage are its much bigger than average rooms. It is definitely a plus compared to teh hotels mid-town, it... More

Great location close to central park. Very nice staff. Property is in good shape considering it is an old classic building. All good, but ... kind of boring. Outdated and a little bit too old school for my taste. I can't complain as everything was impeccable, but the city has plenty of more updated and exciting hotel options.

This hotel was a real find. Perfectly located on East 64th Street between Park Avenue & Madison Avenue, not far from Lexington and very close to 5th Avenue and Central Park. This is the posh end of New York. Nearby are all the high end fashion stores, for example Prada & Chanel. At this hotel, you will find one of... More

The service was excellent and everything else about the hotel met our expectations for a smaller, boutique hotel. Very good attention to detail, friendly management. Will definitely come back in the future.

New York was a stop on my way to the West Coast. It was quite warm in the City and the air conditioning was non existent. It was cooler in the halls then in the room. All is ancient looking, to the point of unkept and dirty. It seems the hotel is running on its last leg. Definitely not close... More

Smaller hotel in a great Location. A bit old fashioned but large spacious rooms, excellent and professional Service at reception. Fitness Center and spa available as well. Attentive Service at breakfast and very good room Service selections and prompt delivery.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
