We were very happy with everything; in particular, the housekeeping person was wonderful. We also had a glass of wine in the bar and the gentleman there was very attentive and pleasant.

Fabulous location. Close to shopping and all the sites of new york within walking distance. Top notch

What I didn't like? Being told at check in that the room was not ready, then being offered a two twin beds room when I had reserved a two queen beds. Being told that the room would be ready an hour later and that I would be informed by phone. Coming back an hour later, and the room is not ready yet, and nobody had called me. Staff is "confused", "housekeeping didn't get the message", really ? And waiting another 30/40 minutes to get the key.... For what is ranked as a 5 stars hotel, it's a little light

Beautiful and stately. Lovely, welcoming staff. Great room with significant size and awesome bath facility. Amazing location. A gem.

Old and need a refresh to get up to modern standards

Old school facility in nice shape. Classic lobby bar. Great location a block from the park.

Superior staff, superior property. Always a very pleasant experience.

Felt like home, staff was wonderful not to large just perfect, very comfortable.

Nice hotel with great location. Close to the Park, high end stores and many dining options around. Bar is very nice but tiny and a bit pricey for average drinks and wines by the glass. Staff is amazing and room service is fantastic. Would stay again for sure.

This is a hotel that lives up to its reputation. I am xtremely picky about where I stay and this hotel checked all the boxes. From the exceedingly attentive housekeeping staff, to the concierge and the very helpful staff at the front desk, all people working there went above and beyond to answer your every need. I loved the huge king bed and the high quality linens, too. I have nothing negative to report about this iconic hotel which met and even exceeded my high expectations. Great location too, on the upper east side just a block from Madison Ave. shopping. A+++

Pleasant stay in NYC; quiet tree lined street with very gracious staff.

Service excellent. Staff very gracious and helpful.

A beautiful hotel with professional and friendly staff.

This was our second stay in the hotel. We find the staff to be warm, welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. We like the location very much. The restaurant breakfast is a bit pricey ... but what hotel breakfast isn't. However, this breakfast is good and portions are generous. Valet parking is prompt and courteous, but quite expensive. If you can forego a car, do. Cabs are generally easy to get in the area. Our only disappointment was that there is no complimentary coffee or tea service in the lobby as we have found at a number of other hotels. We were in NYC during some very frigid weather and such an amenity would have been nice ... and in keeping with the otherwise classy style of the hotel. As it turned out, when leaving for home by car early in the morning and looking for coffee/tea to take with us, we were directed to the hotel restaurant, where we were charged over much for a cup of coffee and a cup of tea. We were surprised at the cost and thought the hotel --otherwise very classy -- would have sent us on our way with a complimentary coffee/tea. Maybe our expectations were high due to the overall tone of attentiveness that pervades the hotel and its operation. This is a small thing in the larger context of a very pleasant stay. I am sure we will stay here again.

the staff was very friendly and very accommodating, Jonathan was amazing took great care found and booked wonderful restaurants for us. the only thing they said the have a taxi 10 blocks radius free of charge it was never offered and the car was pricey they sent to pick us up from the airport we had to wait 1 hour for our ride i felt they could of lowered the price for the delay....free drinks something.

We loved our experience and will be back. The staff was gracious and helpful, our room was cozy and pretty and the ambiance was inviting and gorgeously appointed. Merci Beaucoup Plaza Athenee!

The place really is OK. Staff is pleasant. Service in bar and restaurant on the slow side. You keep wondering what takes so long about making an omelette and 2 poached eggs if there is hardly anyone having breakfast as late as you do... Rooms could use better care. Nice to have marble vanities. Not so nice if they partly fall apart and nobody takes care of it. Same about door frames. Furniture has damages by being hit by something or other furniture that‘s too close to it (bed and desk for example) -Nothing serious... but things that shouldn’t happen in this star- and price-range. That‘s kind of disappointing. Other than that it‘s a pleasant place to stay.
