Perfect for families
We spent 3 nights at Plaza 50 with two teenage sons - space is important to us. It was a very spacious suite with a small kitchen and ample dining area. It was attractive and clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. If you love a beautiful lobby, you won't find it here, but you can mosey up the block to the Waldorf and get your lobby fix there! The New York Luncheonette is steps away and is a clean and fast place to grab a meal - they serve all 3. Walking distance to Grand Central, Rockefeller Center, St Patrick's Cathedral is very close by.
This hotel is in a great neighborhood and is a very good value. We would stay again.
OK hotel for a weekend stay
We spent here 3 nights in September 2003.OK hotel if you plan to stay
with your family over the weekend, but don't expect anything special
* very good location (walking distance to central park, 5th Ave, Waldorf Astoria where the double decker bus stops is just 5 min walking distance from here, great deli around the corner)
* friendly, helpful staff
* suites with kitchen and spacious living room, for those planning to stay with kids
* rooms require renovation and a new furniture
* charges for local calls (min $1 per call...)
Great Value for Money
We found the staff very helpful and the room was clean and very pleasant. The bed made a big impression. It was centrally located for all sightseeing especially the shopping experience. We would heartly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York. Great Value for Money
This was the most horrible experience I have ever had at a hotel! The walls had holes in them, the light in the bathroom flickered- we had a pleasant view of a brick wall, the staff was rude, basically anything that could've been unpleasant was. The concierge was at best ok and the rest of the staff looked at you with blank stares. Dont stay here! Stay at a reputable hotel with a name- this place just sucked. They had apparently been remodeling, which is another excuse for "we will have planks on the floors, and tape covering wires in your room". Bottom line - dont go there. The truth is in the information you can find out about this hotel, which is very little to none. You wont see any pics of the rooms other than the purplish "suite". Also the picture of the front desk is taken from a vantage point that makes it look large and nice, it is small and dingy in reality. Sorry, if I ruined the excited feeling you may have had but, you will thank me later!
Great Staff and Hotel
We arrived at the Plaza Fifty in the middle of the Great Blackout. Even without power the hotel had a reservation list and still knew we were to arrive. The staff was excellent and even in the face of adversity, they were professional and always had a smile on their face. I will definately stay there again.
Great place to stay
The Plaza Fifty was an excellent place to stay, the rooms are extremely spacious, with their own kitchen facilities which was extremely handy since there was a deli just around the corner. The rooms are kept very clean and I have no hesitaion on returning there to stay. All the sights are within walking distance maybe a lttle further out than some more expensive hotels but you come across your first sight within a ten minute walk. All in all an excellent place to stay.
Wonderful place to stay
We stayed 3 nights at the Plaza Fifty and couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotels. The staff was so friendly and helpful and upgraded us to a superior suite at no additional charge. We couldn't have asked for a nicer staff. The room was huge with a dining room, kitchen, large bedroom and a private balcony. Close walking distance to many popular city destinations and excellent restaurants. Staying at the Plaza Fifty really topped off a truly excellent vacation.
Great Value, Pleasantly Surprised
I was really impressed! I stayed for six nights in June and can't say enough good things about Plaza Fifty. Four women need their space and we had it. The room was a good size, always clean and quiet. The small kitchen was perfect for toasting a bagel or heating some leftovers. The location was great for bus or subway and walking distance to Rockefeller Center. The value was great for 2 queen beds and the space we needed. I will stay again.
Plaza Fifty was nice and clean
We stayed at the Plaza Fifty in July 2003. The hotel staff was very nice and let us check in 3 hours early. The room was very clean and a nice size. There was a microwave, coffee pot, and fridge in the room. I would definitely stay here again!
Have just returned from a long weekend in New York, staying at the Plaza Fifty. It is a fantastic* hotel. Rooms are large and absolutely spotless and most have full kitchens which is amazingly useful (there is a wonderful deli, Azure, just around the corner open 24 hours - watch yourself or you'll spend a fortune). All staff were very friendly and helpful without being false, and check in/out was handled quickly and painlessly. I have always stayed a little further uptown on previous trips, so I was somewhat dubious of the location of the Plaza Fifty (I thought it may be a little too far down and a little too far over), but I was pleasantly surprised. The Waldorf is two blocks away, if thats any indication. Anyway, I could go on for pages about this place but I'll hold back and just say that the Plaza Fifty is very spacious, very clean, very friendly and very very good value.

Slept in till 9.20am.
When trying to turn on the water in our awful shower, I twisted so much that my hip went CLUNK and severe pain shot through my right hip. OMG I was so scared. I couldn't move. I thought my hip replacement had failed. Thank goodness Peter was there. After being in shock for several minutes, Peter helped me slowly to the bed, I nearly feinted on the way. Felt so sick. The pain was awful.

... no work done to it - interesting to see the layer upon layer of linoleum (some looked just like Grandma's house) and then we went into two refurbished ones, set up as they would have been back in the 1890's - so cramped for such a lot to be going on in them and explored how immigrants balanced work, family and religion at ...
Managed a trip on the subway to Yankee stadium and enjoyed the game although way too hot sitting in the heat of the afternoon. Mandatory chilli dog for lunch - extra long for Don. Yankees 4 - Texas Rangers 2. Back to midtown on subway then managed to catch an early evening cruise on the Hudson river under stunning cloudy skies - lady liberty even more stunning under half light and cloudy ...
Welcome to my first blog post ever! (not counting every blog post I've ever contributed to in the past: TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google, random threads on Facebook...) Okay, maybe I'm not so new to this after all. My purpose in wanting to start a blog is three-fold: First, I want to keep track of everywhere life takes us for the next year so as not to forget anything; second, I want a new hobby, something to keep me busy and my brain active; third, I ...
... Hall, Tracy Letts and Marisa Tomei. It was a fun, sensitive, well written play. Front row tickets have an obstructed view, but for a quarter of the price, it was satisfactory, and we were so close to the cast we could look up their nostrils!
Because we were at the front of the line, we briefly met (one of the) person(s) responsible for the rush report. Use it if you ...
