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.

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 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)

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...

It's a real 5* hotel, with good traditions of hospitality. Very nice comfortable rooms, although I don't like the classic style.
