    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Plaza Athenee New York New York City

    Wonderful

    from

    I have stayed in NYC many times. The last two times were at the Four Seasons on 57th. Because I found the Four Seasons in NYC not up to my usual (Four Seasons) expectations I decided to try the Plaza Athenee. My family and I very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was personable, the rooms were lovely, and the dining was very nice. The hotel is older, so you don't have a big flashy lobby (honestly -who cares?) the rooms are decorated with older furnishings and the bathrooms do have smaller sinks and dressing areas. However the towels, sheets and overall maintence of the hotel is really either up to, or better, than the Four Seasons on 57th. It is a quite little corner of Manhattan-very nice, we will go back again.

    Above 5-star

    from

    The only downside is that it is impossible, and I say impossible, to get a taxi from there to anywhere.

    Excellent service

    from

    I went to the Plaza Athenee on a platinum Amex deal for a $460 room and although it was quite lovely and the service was excellent, I think that it was a bit overpriced. This is an old-fashioned, traditional, small hotel on the east side and it is a nice respite from the overly trendy places like the Gansevoort, etc. The room was quite large, but very traditional. No sleep timer on the tv which is an important thing to me. I think the only reason it is rated one of the "Top 50 HOtels" by quite a few groups is the service. Everyone was very formal but extremely accomodating and a room service request for hot milk at midnight arrived within 3 minutes every night. I observed quite a few well-turned-out European businessmen and I think this is what the hotel caters to.

    Great hotel -- great staff

    from

    We just returned from a 4 day stay in New York at the Plaza Athenee. The quality of service was superb--we enjoyed the best personal attention we've ever received at a hotel, and we've stayed at some very nice hotels. The rooms were beautiful, and the location was great. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that we had a very pleasant experience in New York. The hotel was very quiet and serene, but was definately child-friendly (my daughter enjoyed the room service chicken strips on the kid's menu). The children's entrance to Central park was only a block and a half away. The 68th street and 59th street subway stations were an easy walk, and the doorman was terrific at getting a taxi very quickly. I would definitely stay at the Plaza Athenee again!

    A private hideaway in a wonderful city

    from

    This is a wonderful hotel. The staff are incredibly friendly and ensure that your every need is catered for without being over the top. The location is fantastic within easy reach of everywhere in this wonderful city. The rooms are huge and very well furnished and decorated. I have stayed in a number of NYC's top hotels and can't recommend the Plaza Athenee enough.

    Not so romantic to stay here

    from

    I selected this hotel for a romance night, shock to see the painting of the ceiling was peeling before my eyes, i mean this is one of the greatest hotel so this was a surprise to see. our view, well there was no view, the romance was incredible, but we checked out and proceeded our adventure at the marquis marriott, what a view!!! so much for all the hoopla, your fired!

    Really Great Place

    from

    I really enjoyed this plaza. The rooms are very nice. The staff is wonderful. The location is great...forget cabs and the subway, you're within walking distance to the great stores on Lexington, the Whitney, the Met, and the Guggenheim. Theirs a really nice french cafe on 65th, right around the corner. You're right off Central Park, and if you have kids, the zoo is five minutes away. Their turn down service was thorough. The rooms are a bit small and pricey, but very nice. I really really liked this place. My only quibble was they made a mistake on my credit card, compounded it with additional charges, then were a little slow getting back to me. But I would gladly stay at the Athenee again.

    Superb Service and Accommodations

    from

    Being in the travel industry I have the priviledge of staying at some of the best hotels throughout the world and The Plaza Athenee NYC has been one of them. Stayed here for the first time at the beginning of February and had a wonderful experience. Very professional and attentive staff, rooms are HUGE by New York standards and the proximity to Madisson Ave and 5th Ave shopping was excellent. The experience begins with being greeted at the front door and escorted to a private desk where you are seated to check-in. From there you are personally escorted to your room while being informed of all hotel services, facilities and room ammenities. It's no wonder why "Sex and the City" chose the Plaza Athenee for filming. Extra touches such as free internet access in the lobby make this hotel not only an excellent choice for service, but an excellent value for your travel dollar.

    Loved the suite

    from

    The Plaza Athenee was wonderful. We were lucky enough to get the one bedroom suite overlooking the neighborhood. It has a small, European type feel to it. The staff attends to your every need. Great location!

    Central Park is right down the road and it's close to everything. We loved it. The bar and restaurant there are newly refurbished and are great. The concierge was knowledgable and helpful. I would not recommend this hotel for people with small children as there are no childrens programs. It is also very quiet and private. This hotel caters to older adults and people who like privacy, peace and quiet and luxury.

    Absolutely Loved the Plaza Athenee

    from

    I have stayed in many hotels all over the world. This hotel was one of the best I have ever been to. The service, attention, food, rooms etc etc were excellent.

    Forget the Waldorf Astoria, or The Plaza. The Plaza Athenee knocks spots off both of them.

    Day 4 was our big sightseeing day and after a much quieter night we were both feeling fresh and ready. First port of call was back to 9/11 for both the tribute centre and the museum. At ...

    And that was that. Train left on time, and I am now en route home. Will post a final note from there to anchor the map, but that's all for this year's NYC junket. Next year, possibly, Sting's musical about the dying shipbuilding industry in Newcastle, where he grew up, which opens in about two weeks.

I enjoyed looking at everyone's wares but didn't see anything that I had to have. It had a nice time just browsing in the great weather. My feet are still adjusting to walking so much so I decided to head back to my apartment for a quick rest. As ...

The manager said no, that no one at the consulate would even let me in the door unless I was 1) An Indian national or 2) Could provide evidence of an emergency, such as a death certificate, doctor’s note or marriage license. The Travisa website confirmed this, as did the consulate website and the person I spoke to on the phone at the consulate.
