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.

Same as above; Doorman, Reception desk and check in people were great and helpful with wonderful demeanors. But the room was WAY smaller than depicted in the photos online, linens were dusty and smelled of old moth balls, and the mattress was an old 80's style spring form that caused me severe back pain for the whole weekend. Never again will I stay there. Never.

Located in the delightful upper east side, this hotel is wonderful! Will stay again soon!!

Vey pleased with the entire experience. Breakfast a little expensive

beautiful hotel, great location, friendly staff. I will definitely go back to this hotel!!!!

I have been using this hotel as my intermittent New York City home for two decades The hotel personnel transport this fine facility to a second home The location and rooms are excellent As any hotel over time periodic refurbishing has kept its old world charm and updatrd rooms Excellent concierge services will always send you to the right restaurants Congrats Plaza Athenee on a job well done Glenn Budnick

Great location to walk to shopping and the park. Nice area

Very pleasant stay; our first visit. We do plan to return.

Everything was perfect! The location with far enough away from Time Square so we were away from the first time tourists. The doormen were so polite and the restaurant was delicious! Free shoe shine and morning paper! The maids came multiple times a day and were very kind. The receptionist was very welcoming and upgraded our room when we arrived! Can't wait to come back! :)

A real unexpected treat. This will be my NYC first choice always

Lovely experience all the way around. Staff, food/drinks, and room. Great quiet location.

Hidden gem on Madison. Spacious rooms, excellent service.

Hotel staff was very attentive however the hotel is old with need of a major rehaul. Did not feel like a five star hotel. Overpriced

From the doorman Angel to the concierge Rick this hotel offers the best services and accomdations in the city Have stayed here for thirty years and the reason is quality service with a warm caring feeling A job well done

Getting a little old but still a New York classic. Close to the park & many excellent restaurants & shops.
