“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

The hotel is elegant and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff are very attentive and helpful. The location in the Upper East Side is great, very close to Central Park. This is definitely a great place to stay in NYC!

After I experienced some other hotels in NYC, I found the Plaza Athenee via the lhw.com-homepage. I enjoy the calm atmosphere of the Upper East Side, the Central Park a block away. The service is familiar. The rooms are not too large, the interior is of classic style. It´s a Grand Hotel as it should be and a real home, a place of rest, in the city that never sleeps.

Room Tip: the higher the floor, the better. There are very few rooms with balcony - amazing!

This is the ultimate retreat on the upper east side of NYC. The staff is super friendly and accommodate every request. The spa was outstanding, very private and the massages were very rejuvenating. I ordered room service, 15 minutes and the food was so good. The bar scene is very elegant, a great place to start the evening or end with a nightcap... Ask for Gilbert he makes the best chocolate martinis in town. Rooms were spacious, and most important the bed was ultra comfy. Honestly, even if you are not staying in midtown or the upper east, staying here is a must.

Room Tip: There is no bad room here, none.

Lovely rooms with old world decor and modern convenience. Service is impeccable from the door to the desk and the room. Room service is delightful--quick, right and tasty. The location can't be beat. One of NYC's gems.

We make regular trips to NYC and for the past five years, we have stayed exclusively at the Plaza Athenee. It is a delight in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a quiet and peaceful respite. The accommodations are excellent and the staff even better. Because of its small size, it is like a big family. By our second trip, everyone knew us by name. We gave never been disappointed. Plus, it us close to mist everything, at least for us, and we love the walking around this part of the city.

We travel to New York often and have tried many hotels over the years; in Midtown, Upper West Side, Soho and Central Park South. This year we tried the Plaza Athenee and it is now our favorite of them all.

Situated on a Quiet Street in the oh-so-civilized Upper East Side, the Hotel is the perfect antidote to the hectic and tiring streets of the city.

To start off with, I have never accepted the first room I've been shown to - I always complain for one reason or the other -- but to my husband's relief and amazement, at the Plaza Athenee, the first room they showed me was everything I had hoped for.

The room was lovely and spacious with an extremely comfortable bed and sheets so pristine they look like they had been ironed. The scrupulously clean bathroom had a marble floor with a large bathtub and separate shower.

From the hotel I found it easy to walk to Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, the Frick, MOMA, the Met, the Guggenheim, Time Warner Center, and Broadway.

My husband and I traveled with our 15-year-old son and the three of us fit easily in the room which had a surprisingly comfortable roll-away. Our room on the 12th floor had absolutely no street noise which was a first in New York City.

The staff is accommodating and gracious, the bar & restaurant are charming. If you don't want to eat in the hotel there are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance.
All in all, we had a wonderful time!

We were very lucky to hear of this hotel. The main point is you must like boutique hotels-- this is a lovely one. Choose the cheapest room on an upper floor away from elevators, ice machines and revellers. The view of the city is simply spectacular. The service is exceptional. The room was beyond anything we have stayed at in in NYC. The simplest room is designed to maximize elegant comfort. If you like ultra modern-- stay away. It is on 62 Street between Madison and Lexington where you can find amazing items of every kind inside and outside stores. Buy breakfast around the corner or go to St Ambreous on Madison for a coffee and croissant. I am picky. This was my best trip of many to the Big Apple: service was incredible. This is not cheap but rather a guilty pleasure.Two- three days then out with a renewed exhlirating point of view. Worth every penny!

Room Tip: High floor city view room. Buy your own food and booze. Many places on Madison. Close to everythi...
