Fantastic location, great service.

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Pros: Location and understated elegance.
Cons: Bathroom storage and counter space. Otherwise the room and bath was nicely appointed.
Location: Amazing shopping and dining! Great neighborhood in which to stroll and enjoy the beautiful architecture of the turn-of-the-century Park Ave. mansions.
Loved the residential upper East Side location. Chic boutiques, quaint gourmet restaurants and Central Park very close by. Rooms were very comfortable and bright, but I would have enjoyed a bit more counter space instead of a pedestal sink for preparing one's hair and makeup. The staff was superb, offering friendly conversation recommendations and fulfilling any requests promptly and courteously. I enjoy the Plaza Athenee in Paris and will return again!

Good hotel but there are better hotels

Posted Dec 15, 2014
Excellent location , close to high end shopping and 2 blocks from restaurants and diners, but unfortunately in terms of the hotel condition with almost US$ 600 /night, i'd prefer to stay at other hotels. The building is okay, its just it IS old. The carpet, the wall, the bed, old. But thats probably the hotel's theme. So it really depends on preferences. Nothing special about the room, only renaissance interior and the best part of the room is the bathroom. With that price tag i think there are much better hotels with lower price offered. Definetely not for those who love modern minimalist view. I'd expect more than excellent location for that price

Period piece in a good location frozen in time

Posted Nov 8, 2014
Pros: Location, and purity of style. You have to expect the style.
Cons: The dining room and bar a super cramped, no windows, feels like a deep afterthought almost in the basement. Our DR service was slow and pretentious.
Location: Location? This hotel is 5 blocks from the center of the universe, Fifth Avenue at 59th street. Everything is here (we selected hotel for location).
As expected, this was a period piece decorated like my grandmother's apartment. The check in is the supposedly high touch thing where you sit on ancient chairs at a rickety desk and get fussed over (I like the mass production hotels better). The sleeping room had lithographs in gilt frames and the bath is fitted with replica pre-war tiles and fixtures - but all in terrific shape. It's a taste of an era you have to want. For super trend and hip, stay on the High Line.

Upper east side hotel

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Very nice upscale hotel, one of the best hotels weBe ever stayed at. They upgraded us from a regular king suite to the presidential suite for free, what a nice surprise. Overall the hotel was amazing just wish room service and betel restaurant was a little less expensive.
