Romantic Anniversary Trip

My husband and I stayed at the Plaza for our anniversary in April. The Plaza was beautiful, elegant, and perfectly located near Central Park and Midtown Manhattan restaurants and shops. The staff was professional, courteous, and very accommodating for any of our needs or questions. We would stay here again and again in the future.

In the Heart of NYC

As expected, everything was first clas with some tiny exceptions which I will note here: the king-sized bed did the rock-and-roll--definitely not one with individual springs. Every motion of the bed partner is felt by the other person all night long; no fitted sheet on the mattress, hence some sloppiness in the bed-making category; could not do an automatic check-out from the room because of some inability on their part to download our file. Otherwise the service and accomodations are what you would expect for a room costing over $500 per night.

Wonderful memory

We spent our anniversary weekend at the Plaza, and had a wonderful experience. It was pricey, but worth it for the memories, the location, and the way we were treated by every single staff member we met. They were overly accomodating and kind. We would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous hotel

My husband and I stayed four nights at this hotel. Best location for shopping. Wonderful experience. Staff made us feel very welcome. Service in Palm Court and Bars was outstanding. Great bed-never slept better. Very expensive hotel but worth it - would definitely stay at the Plaza again. They also provide a BMW 7 to take guests anywhere within a ten block radius. Just ask doorman if car is available.
