My husband and I stayed at the Plaza Athenee in June 2006 for a long weekend. Having stayed at the Plaza Athenee Paris I was expecting the best of the best. Unfortunately, the New York hotel is highly overrated. Our room was shabby and dark with beat up furniture and no view. Our bathroom was tiny with horrible lighting. I am so glad to hear that the hotel is currently undergoing renovations, as they were much needed!
I would definitely stay at this hotel again (after renovations). The location is superb – quite, tree-lined street on the Upper East Side and close to Central Park. We enjoyed walking to the Museum of Modern Art and later meeting friends at the hotel’s cozy bar for drinks. The hotel has a European, residential feel; it is very quaint and intimate. The staff members were all very courteous and attentive. I look forward to the unveiling of the new hotel.
