Feel like you are lucky enough to live in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, steps from Madison and 5th Avenue, Central Park, shopping, dining and museums....yet discreetly located on a quiet residential avenue. The service and surroundings are top notch and we were treated like the royalty that has been known to stay here....we even had Veuve on ice in our room and chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival!! A wonderful way to kick off our weekend getaway in the city. I definitely hope to stay here again!

Some of the best service I've ever had at a hotel. It was a pleasure to stay at the Athenee. Special mention to Jason who took care of the late night room service and kept the bar open after hours for us to enjoy nightcaps after some long days working.

I would absolutely stay at the Plaza Athenee again.

I was in NYC for 10 days and I had a chance to stay at a few hotels.
My award goes to Plaza Athenee and I think this hotel deserves it.

The location is pretty exclusive, residential neighbourhood, more calm then midtown. You can walk to very nice places or you have the underground if you need to be more fast.

The check is wonderful, sitting down in a lounge area, more relaxed than the check in counter.
My room was a perfect balance of tradition and modern elegance.

I visited the SPA and unluckily I had no time to use it. Will do next time.

Last but not least, every member of the team made me feel home every single moment.

Just a perfect hotel in every sense. So Quiet- you may never know that you are just two blocks from a very busy New York street and great shopping. The staff were great, so helpful and
accomodating and the helpful staff on floor 12 even cleaned our room before we had a late check out, just going that extra mile. The room was a good size for Manhatten and well equipped. The bed was very soft, perhaps for us a little too soft but again very comfortable.
Recent reviews are correct, the views are not spectacular but I trade that any day for quietness.
Just two blocks from Central Park perfectly located for the Frick Museum too.
Yes, we would go there again.

Room Tip: Floor 12 and 07 was a particularly quiet room and nice location although it wasn't a perfect vie...

Wonderful hotel if you want to be incognito. Small lobby much like apartment building. Great little bar if you like quiet. Classic older small hotel. Booked with Platinum AX, unfortunately did not get upgraded. Standard Courtyard King room, lower floor. Room was fine, very dark. Older classic marble bathroom. Unfortunately a little mold on bathtub tile grout. We prefer The Carlyle.

Room Tip: Lower floor courtyard rooms are VERY dark

My husband and I have been staying at the Plaza Athenee for years. The location on a quiet residential street close to great restaurants within walking distance, Central Park, and fabulous shops, is perfect for us!

The staff is wonderful and try to accommodate every request. The bar in the evening is always fun, and although we did not eat in the restaurant on this trip, in the past it has been as good as any other meal in town!

This smallish boutique hotel, located in a very nice, quiet, mostly residential area in the upper East side, one block from Central Park was most of everything I hoped for from a lodging of this type. I say "most" because my friend and I were placed in a room with a view of a brick wall. I realize not every room can have a view; I was just "hoping" for one.
The hotel is clean and elegant.Evidently it has recently gone under renovation; and it shows. Our dbl room was generous with 2 closets and one bureau closet. The bathroom was well lit, updated and nice.
The staff is well trained and friendly. The on site restaurant, Arabelle has a good menu The bar/lounge is a little dark; lots of wood panels, dark leather, and niches, but comfortable and again, the staff is wonderfully accommodating. The drinks are top notch and the food is very good. The variety of wines by the glass is impressive. The on site gym is very nice; well appointed and clean---with a view! Next time I would like to try a spa treatment because that looked nice too.
Walking distance to lots of things, and I felt very safe walking alone in the area both night and day.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: maybe facing 64th street for a view
