High tea at the plaza with our mothers today! Great ending to a spectacular weekend in New York! Yummy champagne and sandwiches with a wide assortment of teas and sweets! Excellent wait staff and excellent atmosphere! Highly recommend!

We stopped in to try the afternoon tea and to be honest, I had mixed views. The room was absolutely beautiful but I felt the staff were quite rude if you asked them for anything. I needed a teaspoon to serve my jam and the waiter looked at me like I had asked for something unacceptable! We ordered two champagne...

Thank you so much for your response. I am very happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay at The Plaza. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. While the construction isn't a pleasant sight, we are hoping that Apple's final product will be worth the wait!

What can I say? It was fantastic. We had stayed with family in Battery Park City the first part of trip and wanted to do an old school, jazz-filled end on Central Park...plus my 20 year old wanted to stay at The Plaza....she loves the 1920s, Fitzgerald AND Eloise. And good hotels. I was prepared to be upset because The...

The Plaza is one of the most elegant, luxurious hotels in all of New York. It is a fairy tale hotel with old world charm. The rooms are stunning and beautiful. The beds and sheets are incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms with LeLabo products are outstanding. The location on Central Park South and 5th Avenue cannot be beat. The only...

This historic hotel is the place to see and be seen, and it's within walking distance of fine restaurants and fabulous shopping on Fifth and Madison Avenues, not for the faint of heart. The service was quite good overall, but there were a few issues. Upon arrival, I noticed the shelves in both closets (we had a junior suite) were...

The rooms are beautiful and well appointed with luxurious bedding, furniture, including a separate coat closet and bar setup, heated floors and gold tiles in the bathroom, and beautiful chandeliers. The staff was courteous and helpful and the concierge reserved a quiet table for my breakfast meeting at the Palm Court. The only thing that reminded me of the hotel's...

The ambiance is everything in the movies, and more. From the food court underneath to the grand lobby, nothing beats Christmas in New York by staying here. The friendly doormen usher you into the lobby where a majestic Christmas Tree gives you the Home Alone 2 wow factor. The restaurant is sublime. Truly a great stop on 5th Avenue!

Arrived at front desk and was told we had upgrade from junior suite to regular suite. Only difference was a wall between bedroom and living area. Square footage was same. We never used the butler service so not sure if really available. However , the concierge was really all I needed. Melody took care of me the whole 5 days...

It's one of those things I dreamed of visiting. The Plaza is in so many movies/shows that it would have been exciting to see in person. We wanted to take our daughter for a special afternoon tea followed by a Broadway show. We made reservations via Open Table for Wednesday April 19th. Unfortunately, we made reservation for 11am to find...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
