While the hotel is not the "grande dame" it once was, we had a very nice stay. We arrived at 4:00 pm and was checked in quickly. Had asked for an upgrade to a park view room if available. Got a great full park view room on the 19th floor and was pleased with the room. The bathroom did have some strange odor in it when we first arrived, but a little room freshner took care of that. The common areas around the lobby were very nice and Harry's Bar was a pleasant afternoon retreat. The bartender made wonderful old time cocktails and was very friendly. The little courtyard area outside was also nice for getting "take out" from the Plaza Food Hall and sitting outside to enjoy the weather.
Each employee we encountered was most courteous and helpful. No complaints here. This hotel gave us great value for our money. We will definitely consider this hotel when next we visit.
