Hotel Plaza Athenee, New York

Nestled charmingly on a residential tree-flanked street and soaring from amidst the legendary townhouses, Hotel Plaza Athenee is just a block away from the Fifth Avenue and Central Park, but is even closer to the Radio City Music Hall, theaters, as well as Madison Avenue designer shops. The prime location of the Hotel Plaza Athenee on the stylish Upper East Manhattan offers a convenient day of shopping as well as sightseeing for all kinds of travelers ranging from families to business visitors. With is yet preserved European touch that augments the boutique intimacy, this New York elegance is among the most esteemed hotels on the planet. If you have already visited this one, I would recommend visiting this one more to soak in its charm of million-dollar renovated guest rooms as well as suites.

Coming to its stately stone architecture, its red canopy adorn the European-style facade, white marble decorates the lobby floor, and that the gold domed dining zone is full of brass chandeliers, murano glass, murals of pagodas, chiffon colored walls, and faux conservatory windows. In addition, the bar in amber light reflects a fusion of European as well as North African décor, lacquered walls, and rich velvet curtains.


Hotel Plaza Athenee is proud to offer 142 guestrooms and suite in a plethora of diverse decor and styles. In a chic European style, the guestrooms feature ultra-modern beds adorned in down duvets as well as 370-threaded Belgian linens. Augmenting the refined look and feel are the silky fabrics, crown moldings, beamed ceilings, and large windows. The bathrooms are lush in Portuguese marble (white and pink tints) and offer mirrors, scales, private toiletries of Paris, telephones, dual sinks, and deep soaking tubs. And yes, you can also spot a Paul Garnier wall clock of France.
