This is an old world hotel in a great location

Posted Dec 7, 2016
Pros: Location, size of room, and ambiance.
Cons: Modernize the bathrooms a bit (tub?), and perhaps the carpeting.
Location: Amazing location for shopping, dining. Centrally located....
Plaza Athenee is a lovely, old world hotel. The rooms are a decent size for NYC, but this is an old hotel, so elevators, carpets, bath fixtures, etc. are older. The hotel does not have a real lobby, and the restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday. That being said, it is surrounded by great restaurants, recommend Il Molino for Italian, Vauclause for French. It is in the heart of Madison Ave shopping, and is a private discrete hotel that gets a lot of well known guests.

Pros: Hotel location great! Staff attentive although had us leaving a day earlier some won didn't check the paper work.

A wonderful staff concierge was top notch only complaint it turns out one of the few fine hotels with smoking and I ended up not only in a smokers room but a whole floor!I suggested on checkout they should make everyone aware when checking and ask

Very pleasant

My friend and I enjoyed the stay in Plaza Athenee. The room was very clean, the staff was polite and helpful. Every request was fulfilled in a timely manner. the only issue was with the limited lunch and dinner menu because the restaurant was under construction. Another small inconvenience was the limited amount of electricity outlets and no usb outlets to charge the devices. They say it was on the order and they were planning to start upgrading the rooms with these features sometimes by the end of 2016.The location is also VERY nice: Upper East Side Manhattan is VERY clean, not noisy. There are countless fashion stores and department stores around, and , most importantly, Central Park is just two blocks away.
