This is an old world hotel in a great location
Posted Dec 7, 2016
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.
