Nice Clean hotel with perfect location. Room service was always super slow but the room was clean and everyone was friendly. Great location to everything! and beautiful views from top floors. Best part was the Guardinia smell in the lobby!

Went down to New York in October with my husband and kids. The location is right in midtown Manhattan, close to all the museums, central park and shopping.

We stayed at the Plaza some time ago, the hotel is pretty much everything you would expect with beautiful furnishings, a great presence and lovely staff. I do think it's a shame that the original building has effectively been split in two between Plaza Condominiums and normal hotel trade. I feel that the Condo's get the best of the views...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
