Overview
The Plaza is one of New York's grandest hotels, built in 1907 in true French Renaissance style. The setting on Fifth Avenue and Central Park could not be more magnificent. Replete with the splendor of crystal chandeliers and views of the inner court, city or park, rooms are plushly decorated with quality furnishings and fabrics. In 2008 the hotel completed a USD400 million renovation, which included downsizing the 802 hotel accommodations to 282, allowing a higher level of personalized service, including a butler on each floor.

Not what it used to be

Visited for 4 nights in July for business.Very disappointing. This hotel was once a great place. Now it seems worn out and used. The service is mediocre at best. Seems like a tourist photo spot more than anything. Most rooms in the hotel don't face the park. Those were all sold off as private residences.The elevators are extremely slow and insufficient for the number of rooms.A visit to the bar will make you sick, all the fancy colored LED light fixtures are flashing or burnt out completely.As a child I had fond memories of this hotel, those are gone now and I will never return.There are so many other hotels you'd be better off with for these prices.

Christmas Grinch

Ok... picture this Christmas in New York with various family members meeting up. Naturally we wanted to do something extra-ordinary. After MUCH research we decided on The Palm Court cafe in The Plaza Hotel for Christmas Eve dinner. After all it is the Plaza, so no matter the price it will be fabulous.Um, no. Not even close, no where near it. Every part of the experience was less than average (actually the cutsie Italian place we at for a drink prior was wonderful) What really topped it off is when we were leaving (much poorer too) we dared to stop and take some pictures in front of the Christmas tree only to be pounced on by several bouncer telling us to move on, in a not so polite tone. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I certainly could not.You maybe The Plaza but that does not necessarily mean you have class. It was unforgivable that you nearly ruined our family Christmas... I said nearly because at the end of the day we do not need you or substandard service.

Luxury and comfort

This is a gorgeous hotel. Beautiful rooms, great service and luxury everywhere you look. We did have some issues during our stay (air conditioner dripping twice) but these were taken care of fairly quickly. The mattress in our room most likely needs to be replaced (sagging) but it did not bother us enough to request a change of rooms. I did bring the mattress issue to the attention of management at the end of our stay. The air conditioner is strong and it was great to come from walking around in the sun and heat to a nice cool room. Everything can be controlled from the iPad....very easy and convenient. But you can also control the temperature and lights manually. Each room is provided with butler service, who introduces himself to each guest personally. We did not make use of this but it is available if you wish to do so. Great location, in midtown Manhattan, right across from Central Park. Great food court downstairs for breakfast, lunch or dinner (see separate review). And of course, there are restaurants in the hotel. We had drinks at the Palm Court, the Rose Club and a bite to eat at the Champagne Lounge. Pricey, as you would expect, but great atmosphere in all three. A highly recommended experience.

Perfection in every way.

Staff was welcoming, friendly and unpretentious. Seamless experience. Beautiful room (Tower room on 18th floor). Room service was friendly and fast. Bathroom was amazing. Cannot wait to get back soon!

Exquisite Cheesecake Experience

Yes, that's what I take away from my stay at the Plaza. I love new york cheesecake and the service told me that their version of the cheesecake with a glass of Billecart-Salmon rosé champagne would make a great New York experience... I confirm!
