Full accommodation information
The Plaza has been a piece of the Big Apple’s social, cultural and architectural history for over a hundred years.
Occupying arguably one of the best hotel locations in New York, on Fifth Avenue overlooking Central Park, it’s instantly recognisable with an iconic facade, famous for a certain five-star style and overall does not disappoint on a single front.
Step inside and you’re instantly greeted by striking marble pillars, gold edging everywhere, exotic plants, crystal chandeliers and the kind of ceiling decoration that would be perfectly at home in any ancient palace.
Though extravagant – and you’ll find a similar depth of detail throughout – this timeless décor is one of the main reasons for booking a room at The Plaza, as attested by the heads of state, royalty and A-list celebrities who often stay here.
Aside from this museum-worthy interior design, there is plenty else to love about your time at The Plaza, beginning with that enviable postcode. Studded on the corner of 58th Street just yards from Fifth Avenue, you can be shopping in the most famous department stores, visiting the Museum of Natural History or walking through Central Park within minutes.
This fact also means that the views to be enjoyed from certain guestrooms, suites and restaurant areas at The Plaza are also some of the best around. Inside, you then have a sumptuous Guerlain Spa, well-equipped gym and Warren Tricomi Hair Salon, as well as designer boutiques, a fantastic concierge, valet parking and lots to keep little ones entertained if travelling to New York with children.
As you would expect, actual accommodation options at The Plaza are not quite as grandiose as the soaring ceilings, marble floors and gilded bannister rails found elsewhere, though are still luxurious and regal in their own right.
That said, you’ll still find beautiful antique velvet armchairs, heavy drapes, marble-topped coffee tables and yes, plenty of chandeliers depending on exactly which room you choose. From the entry-level Plaza King Rooms to the most bespoke signature suites, there is no compromise on style, standard or design here, as can be said for the fine dining restaurants, live music bars and lounge areas this top New York hotel is so well known and loved for.
The majesty and glamour of the landmark Plaza hotel is carried right through from the Plaza King to the Grand Penthouse Suite, as gold embellishments (such as 24-carat gold fixtures), artworks and thick drapes adorn every corner of every room category. All are easily spacious enough for a comfortable seating area, expansive closet space and a deluxe, mosaic-tiled bathroom, with both a separate bathtub and shower also coming as standard for most. Something truly special then comes in the higher category suites, where floorplans increase and the design is bespoke, with certain options (from the Junior Suite category onwards) also coming with butler service and a host of extra perks. Mod-cons and in-room amenities for everyone include marble-topped sinks, iPad room controls, king-size beds, a seating area with sofa or separate living room, a flat-screen TV and a mix of New York City views.

Wellness facilities at The Plaza are there to be savoured as soon as you step into the Guerlain Spa’s pristine white reception area. Here lies a world of massages, body therapies, facials and beauty treatments including make-up packages, plus a modern gym and Warren Tricomi Hair Salon. There are then boutiques and bookshops onsite, as well as childcare services from the concierge if needed, valet parking and butlers for the superior suites.
Restaurants & Bars
The Champagne Bar
Beneath you, highly polished marble floors shine, while up above towering ceilings inlaid with gold and cascading crystal chandeliers glitter day and night. Sit here with a glass of bubbly as you watch the world come and go on New York’s busy streets outside, and once you get past the extensive list of champagnes, cocktails and fine wines you’ll find an equally outstanding all-day menu. Expect everything from pastries and smoked salmon to caviar, oysters, salads, burgers and steaks.
The Palm Court
A ritzy Manhattan haven, historic Palm Court can’t help but take your breath away. Flooded with light thanks to an enormous glass atrium supported by gold and marble columns, the hall is filled with luxuriant, tall palms and towering bouquets of flowers, all reflected in countless mirrors around the walls; and that’s before even getting to the food! Open all day, come here for breakfast, afternoon tea, an all-day bar menu and a seemingly endless array of fine teas, cocktails, wines and spirits.
The Plaza Food Hall
This bustling indoor marketplace will have your taste buds dancing with glee. Exclusive foodie boutiques selling all manner of artisan produce are interspersed with open kitchens rustling up tasty morsels for passing shoppers.
The Rose Club
Overlooking the hotel lobby, The Rose Club is a plush, wood-panelled lounge for sophisticated evening cocktails and light bites, velvet armchairs, glowing crimson lamps and, on a Wednesday, fantastic live jazz music.
Todd English at the Plaza
Take an international culinary tour in this inventive restaurant featuring nine different food counters, where all the clamour of the kitchen is proudly on show. Pull up a stool at the Oyster Bar or opt for sushi rolls, go for The Grill which features dishes from the land and sea, or take a trip to the Far East at the Noodle and Dumpling Bar; the choice is yours!
Activities & Entertainment
You’ll simply never be short of things to do while staying at The Plaza, New York, thanks to that prime Fifth Avenue location. So while onsite you have those live music bars, the spa and various restaurants, within moments you could be strolling the pathways of Central Park, visiting the famous nearby department stores or hopping on the subway to Brooklyn, just over the bridge. You then have Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building, galleries and museums of Manhattan plus all other highlights of New York easily accessed from here.
