Outstanding and Beautiful!

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: Great rooms.....wonderful location....excellent service......AAAAAAAAA
Cons: Wow, this would be a hard one......only thing I can think of is having the remodeling finished.
Location: Right beside the park......beautiful area.
We were in town to drop my son off to his first year Columbia and we were overwhelmed with the things we needed to get done. The hotel and concierge were outstanding in helping us achieve every detail. We had a beautiful room with all the grandness you would expect and after taking our son to his first day, we relaxed in the Champagne Bar..........we needed it. Our every whelm was taken care of and we were treated as if we ownd the hotel itself.

Completely disappointing and NOT 5 Star AT ALL!

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: The opulence of the lobby, elevator and bathrooms are beautiful....completely run down and not well maintained, but beautiful. Nothing else.
Cons: Training of the staff, maintaining of the premises and hiring new management.
The staff does not care about you. The ac units are not maintained and they break down. The room service prices are ridiculously high, not worth it and they do not come back to clean up after you have finished. A perfect example is; I ordered two espresso coffees as my breakfast. They charged me $39 for both coffees and then the dirty cups, napkins and tray stayed in my room until 7pm when I finally returned back to the room and complained to the front desk supervisor. The front door men only talk to themselves without paying any attention to the guests. The housekeeping staff does not clean up properly nor do they bring extra towels when requested. After all my aggravation, their offer to make up for everything they did to me and my family for 5 days was to bring a small plate of chocolates, waive one light dinner we ordered to our room and hand me their business card so the next time we stay they will give us a free room upgrade. NO THANKS!!!! I don't need more aggravation like this plus a free room upgrade. There are many more hotels in NYC that TRULY ARE 5 Star!

Best hotel in NY

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Everything!!
Cons: The breakfast area was closed for remodelation. We should have been told about this work.
Location: The location is perfect. Right on 5th Ave. and Central Park.
It is our third time at The Plaza and as usual the service and the hospitality of the staff is second to none.

Luxury by the Park

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: Excellent staff
Location: Excellent location right across from Central Park for a stroll, boat ride or lunch at the boathouse. Easy access to shopping and restaurants.
Stayed here as a special treat before flying home from the US. Staff were extremely pleasant and efficient and our room was lovely, with a view across to Central Park. High tea in the Palm Court is clearly modelled on the Ritz in London however doesn't quite measure up food-wise - although the service here was better. Overall, a lovely way to finish our trip - would highly recommend.

A stay where we had to pay for everything.

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: The location
Cons: Not to pay for every little thing that makes life easier
Location: On corner of 59th St and 5th Ave. Shoppin, sightseeing, walking and visiting
The Plaza hotel is very expensive. On top we had to pay for Wi fi (15$ taxes) per 24 hours , car parking (65$ per day) and not even a bottle of water or coffee maker in our room. The Hotel restaurant is really over priced. One evening for 1 glass of wine (the least expensive) and 2 Shirley Temple cost me 39$. On the restaurant menu I saw breakfast for 2 for 103$!!!! Guests next door had small children who screamed and cried at night and very early in the morning.
