Sure I like to stay at the Plaza because it's an icon, instantly recognizable from a bevy of movies, novel and stories. And because it has that fabulous location at Fifth Avenue and Central Park. And because it's the only hotel in New York my parents wanted to stay at all their lives.
But the reason I LOVE staying at the Plaza is because of the people who work there. They really care about your visit, and about making each little thing just right. They are uniformly warm, friendly, and skilled at making every guest comfortable. It really does feel like "home" in New York City,.

And of course the facilities are great and the service is even better. Perfectly poached eggs delivered by room service right on time (I don't even know how they can do that, and they do it every time). A shirt perfectly pressed within minutes, expert recommendations from the concierge that turn out just right for everyone in our party, great last-minute tickets, and the best doorman in New York City - these are all the things that add up to the Plaza experience. And you can count on it every time.

One of the most over the top hotels I've ever stayed in!! The bathroom is absolutely stunning. Rooms are small but that is to be expected. The multimillion dollar renovation project was worth every penny spent! Restaurant, bar, and ALL staff were fabulous!!! Perfect location to enjoy NYC---Broadway, Central Park, Times Square---everything is within walking distance.

Room Tip: I can't imagine there's a bad one!

Everyone at the Plaza goes out of their way to make you feel at home. It is a very special place with exceptional people and beautiful rooms. There is no other place to stay in NYC, if you have stayed there before, you know what I mean. It is the finest hotel anywhere.

We stayed for 4 nights the place is nice but having stayed at the savoy part of the same group I would say the Savoy standards are higher especially in welcome and service I feel you get a more personal touch.
The hotel is magnificent service is ok , the rooms will soon be ready for an update as refurbished in 2005 according to reception.
Would we stay again yes definite and you can't beat the history and beautiful surroundings.

great place and very welcoming staff.... So nice to get that personal touch in a big hotel. A must to say in again when visiting NY.

Shame I was there for business - would have loved to go there with the family...
