Great hotel close to central park

Cons: N/A
Location: central park, apple store, great restaurants walking distant
having a food court inside the hotel is great at winter time

Don't go by its history.

Posted Jan 29, 2015
Pros: Location was great. The lobby is lovely. One doorman (Tony?) was very nice. The lady concierge was very nice.
We chose it for its history. The lobby and flowers were beautiful. No coffee in room-that's basic hospitality! Had to call Room Svc for ice. One electric outlet did not work-not fixed after reporting it. Light controls too fussy. Hot water in sink took v long & sink did not drain well.

Muy costoso para lo real

Posted Jan 11, 2015
Pedimos upgrade por una suite que terminó costando 3 mil dólares la noche. Teníamos una vista horrible. Es un hotel que todo el mundo quiere visitar por tradición. Pero los costos superan lo que ofrecen por el. Estuvimos 3 noches. Con una es suficiente para vivir la experiencia. Ya muy viejo y sin mantenimiento. El personal excelente. Muy buen servicio.

Not what I expected - Great location

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Service
Client satisfaction is not an absolute measure but depends on where your expectations are. My experience with The Plaza NY was not good. Building is very nice but the accomodation are not that good. Light commands in the room are confusing to operate, there was an ipad in the room from where you could also manage lights and AC, but it had some conection issues with the other devices. A TV remote control was not working (might be run out of battery), I called frontdesk to replace it and they never showed up. So, small details that you would not expect in an US$ 800 dollars rate room

Feels Like a Cash Grab

Posted Nov 22, 2014
Pros: Overall the actual hotel is a classic landmark. I would train all staff to treat all guests as VIPs!
Cons: I would have really appreciated a lobby where the staff let you enjoy just sitting there instead of having to order expensive drinks/food.
Location: Loved the location. Many different things to see, close to high end shopping, the park and much more. Didn't love the horse aroma in hot summer.
Out stay was short and sweet. Liked the room. Wouldn't have minded a different view. Might book again. Concierge did not have all her facts straight about the sight seeing bus and I would not recommend the on-off bus to anyone. She forgot to mention it ends at 5:00 pm and that we shouldn't miss the last bus. Luckily it was extremely hot that day and we couldn't take the extensive waiting time for the bus at each stop, another thing she forgot to mention. As well, If you don't like the sun beating down on you in summer, don't take the on-off sight seeing bus. Not to mention, if you're tall, watch out for tree branches and street signs! Would never take the on off bus again. Concierge should experience activities before they recommend them to their guests.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, and I will be sure to share your comments with our team as well. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to The Plaza at perhaps a different time of year. I recommend New York City in the winter around the holidays when the city is cooler and all the decorations and lights are on display. It is truly magical!

Great location - and an oasis in bustling NYC

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness, decor, staff, size of room and bathroom, operating the lights, air con, etc via iPad (teenage daughter especially impressed!)
Cons: Double doors to toilet/bathroom were semi-transparent and not solid - not ideal for privacy in a "family room"
Location: On Central Park South in NYC: that says it all! But avoid the Museum of Natural History - unless you like dusty old stuffed animals at high prices!
Beautifully refurbished, the Plaza lived up to expectations. Brilliantly located on corner of Central Park South, just at 5th Ave Subway stop. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and probably the quietest hotel room we'd ever slept in - no disturbances from other guests or noise from the streets below. (We were on the 18th Floor.) Generous and good-quality toiletries, well-proportioned bathroom with separate shower room. Staff always happy to help, but discreet. We only ate once in the hotel - in the Todd English restaurant. Food was really good, but we had to sit at the counter, as there's not a very big seating area. Good variety of options in the Food Hall, and lively atmosphere. We'd definitely consider another visit - which is rare for us as we prefer trying new places. Would certainly recommend it.
