Maybe the hotel was good long time ago. But now it cannot compete with other top hotels in Manhattan like the Mandarin Oriental or Park Hyatt. The only thing which was good was the friendliness of the staff. The decor is terrible, the elevator old, the breakfast restaurant has a terrible style without any window. I can imagine a much...

Where do I start?? I have reserved 9 days (8 nights) at the Plaza Athenee with my 3 boys ! When we arrived I realised I had forgotten one suitcase at the airport! We arrived at around 20h when I almost collapsed when realising what I had done. Julien , the front desk assistant manager made I don't know how...

Hard to beat the PA ... always accommodating ... see the same team every time we stay there -- which is often. They will make right anything you find problematic and since you know that's the MO, you can relax about your stay.

I have to admit that it is a luxury hotel and so the service was professional. The room was relatively small but it was OK, the furniture was luxury as well. Hotel location was very near to the central park, but not a subway friendly hotel. Anyway, it is a good hotel to experience.

This is an old style, expensive, but comfortable and service excels. From the start the staff wanted to please. From the gentleman checking us in, to the bellman, to the housekeeper to the concierge, everyone wanted to please but in a gracious manner. The room was comfortable. No view but none was expected. The location is just a few blocks...

This is a boutique hotel on the upper east side, 2 mins walk from central park. Staff are very professional and the rooms are large and well appointed. No in rooms tea or coffee making facilities in this class of hotel but the staff will get you anything you need (at a price).

Everybody can use a little Upper East Side hotel experience from time to time, even if you are not planning to indulge the heart-stoppingly priced boutiques lining nearby Madison Ave. Particularly a hotel at half-price which, of course, comes with some drawbacks- ie. the heart of winter. Still, we rejected similar deals from our usual haunts in Midtown and Murray...

I stayed here twice this month and really enjoyed it. It is a grand dame but very nicely kept up, in a great Upper East Side neighborhood just off Central Park. Very comfortable and nice service. Disappointed with the food and room service - it is one level down from a true luxury hotel but a great find in NYC.

Me and my girlfriend stay here in early March. My girlfriend occasionally smokes and this hotel still has smoking rooms! Loved it!. Room did not smell smoky. The service here is perfect. They treated us wonderfully. Housekeeping even picked up her clothes, which were scattered around the room (she's sorta messy), and folded them neatly at turn-down! We were there...

This hotel is smallish, therefore private and quiet. The facilities are all quite nice but on the verge of needing updating. Of course the location is very convenient and the staff tries very hard. You might even see a movie star drinking in the bar incognito.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
