Well-respected grand European style boutique hotel in Manhattan
Following a recent multimillion dollar renovation, guests relish staying at the "new" Hotel Plaza Athenee. It is elegant, extremely comfortable, and understated, but pampers guests with outstanding service. Located in a quiet, atmospheric tree-lined residential street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, guests at Hotel Plaza Athenee can live life like a local New Yorker in the surroundings of many traditional New York townhouses.
3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Guests feel like they are staying in an authentic New York neighborhood
  • Complimentary use of the business and fitness centers
  • Exclusive use of the luxurious four-suite spa
Hotel Plaza Athenee Rooms
Each of the 142 rooms at the Hotel Plaza Athenee is individually styled to the highest standards.  Find a comfortable sitting area along with plasma televisions with access to 300 channels and on-demand movies to keep the most ardent viewer entertained. Deep soaking tubs, marble baths, and dual sinks mean that guests are able to spread out in the bathroom. Climb into a turned-down bed and sleep between luxurious Italian Sferra linen sheets at night. Contemporary furnishings, a sitting area, writing desks and sensitive lighting provide an atmosphere to suit most occasions. The suites have living rooms and full kitchenettes that are ideal for a long stay. For an ideal spot to relax after a busy day or a romantic encounter, choose a suite with an enclosed terrace. For even more atmosphere, select one with an outdoor balcony and relax while enjoying the twinkling lights of the Manhattan skyline. All Hotel Plaza Athenee guests feel pampered while staying at this fine hotel, but for ultimate pampering, consider staying in one of the two presidential suites, which are truly palatial.

Best 5 Star Deal in Manhattan

Welcome to the Plaza Athenee! You have stumbled across a real treat, and will not be disappointed. These rooms are some of the largest you will ever find in NYC. And the location - walking distance to Central Park, Barney's NY, FAO Shwartz, and the Vacheron Constantine store make it pretty well situated for anything you need to see, do, or buy! For a price...

If you like cigars, Club Macanudo is just one block away. One of the only remaining places for the public in NY in which one can purchase and enjoy a fine, premium Cigar. (63 Street)

A Xmas Weekend in New York

Good Hotel. The room was clean. Absoluitely no view: they put us in a room a back of Hotel, but I was a "one-nighter", so I didn't care. Staff was nice and obliging. Emily wanted a massage on short notice (on a Saturday, yet) and they obliged--for $286, which must be a new world record. On balance, it was a nice experience, although I prefer the Regency (which was not available, or priced out of sight).

While it is nice to be in New York City just before Xmas, everybody thinks so too, so it is a madhouse and very costly.

Short Business Trip

The hotel was a nice diversion from the typical midtown hotel. My impression was that the restaurant was generally frequented by local neighborhood residents and few hotel patrons. While the food was good, the atmostphere was a bit geriatric. No bar no atmosphere. The business center was something that was under construction while I was there, so its lack of availability was a bit of an inconvenience. Regardless, I will go back.

outstanding experence

first i want to say i had wonderful time at nyc. the hotel was first rate. i sent several email to the hotel and each respond quickly and gave me the answer i requested. Mr. Sebastian Wurst the Hotel Manager and staff was great! one request was to have my pillowcase monogramed and it was done. paid extra but worth it. At anytime i can have my room cleaned. it always done within few hours. Each time i came back it was done. The room was superior king and its amazing! 16th floor with corner unit that had great view of nyc. the room was clean and also newly remodeled. The location was perfect, quiet but close to shop,food and subway. Once again staff was helpful nice its truely five star. Next time i visit i will stay that hotel again.

If using Amtrak from Penn station, get the cab to drop you at the 31st and 8th avenue entrance. It will save a lot of walking in the terminal.
