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.

Don't expect 5 star service - enjoy its history

I've stayed at 5 star resorts and hotels around the globe. I would consider The Plaza a historic hotel that leans too much on its iconic history rather than maintaining and exceptional level if service. Doormen disappear. The concierge was the least helpful man I've ever experienced in a concierge and bizzarely pretentious - which these days is dated. I'm 46 retired silicon valley - do I need to wave my bank account around so folks are not di**s. I know this is NY not SF and they still care about what you wear but it's 2017 not the 1980s . Due to the separate residential properties the entrance is disjointed and not particularly inviting. The room we stayed in was not particularly well maintained. Staff helpfulness was oddly very helpful to not wanting to give you the time of day - beyond comprehension.

Luxury!

We always enjoy but sits by the Plaza. Always a great experience, from the bedding to the staff etc. we particularly love the food court - brought home cupcakes and treats to our kids . We have eaten lunch in the food court in several occasions and always enjoyed the experience ! Luxury!

"Park View" is a joke

I'm trying different hotels in the vicinity with park view each time I'm in NYC. The suite advertised with "park view" at the Plaza for 2500/night gave me barely a glimpse of Central Park between two buildings, but plenty of views into other people's rooms and vice versa.

A missed opportunity

Stayed for 4 nights, whilst initial aesthetics are pleasing, the finer detail was missing. Torn carpet upon entrance. The staff within the champagne weren't particularly helpful and i felt watched during drinks and especially when paying bill which was unnecessary. Rooms were nice, beds very comfortable. the marble bathroom exceptional.Breakfast was nice experience, menu plentiful but cheaper alternatives available short distance away.Comparing this hotel to other 5 star hotels of same price, I felt this was of lesser standard. I enjoyed stay here, would I stay again...I'm not so sure.

The Plaza Food Hall - not to be missed!!

We came across the Food Hall in the Plaza Hotel by chance. We loved it and visited a couple more times during our stay in NYC. There are lots of stalls selling drinks, hot food, cakes, sandwiches, pastries and handmade chocolates etc. Must mention the doughnuts courtesy of Doughnuttery - these were amazing. You order your mini doughnuts and are given a choice of different flavoured sugars to have them dipped in! We chose a selection between us, my favourite being the mulled apple cider...they were amazing. The four of us polished off 25 assorted flavoured doughnuts in less than 10 minutes - they were mini ones though!! I have been craving them ever since we returned home!Best to visit on a week day as it is very busy on a weekend.
