There are so many hotels all over the world, but few can aspire to achieve iconic status. The New York Plaza Hotel is however one hotel which can definitely claim to have achieved such status, regarded worldwide as a landmark and an integral part of New York City.
The grand five star hotel has played host to numerous celebrity guests over the decades and it has played a part in several movies, including Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. There is arguably not a hotel in New York which can surpass The Plaza in terms of luxury, opulence and service. Indeed, guests can even enjoy the services of a personal butler during their stay if they wish and the accommodation on offer at the Plaza is a world of elegance with luxurious rooms and vast suites on offer.
Dining at the hotel is an amazing experience, a true dream come true for gourmets with several places to dine including the renowned Todd English Food Hall which offers a varied menu inspired by Pan-European influences. There are several different stations on offer in the Food Hall which serve a diverse selection of epicurean delights such as sushi, pizza, pasta, charcuterie and patisserie. You could easily spend hours sampling all of the delights on offer, but of course there is so much to explore in New York itself. Whilst in the city, don’t forget to explore Central Park, to take a ride on the world famous Staten Island Ferry, spend a day browsing the magnificent collections at The Guggenheim or MOMA and stop off at Serendipity III, which is famed worldwide for its frozen hot chocolate and cakes (not to mention its role in the eponymous film starring Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack). No visit to New York would be complete without a visit to the Empire State Building and of course the shopping on offer in the city is incredible, with famous department stores such as Bloomingdales and Macy’s to be found, along with more quirky vintage stores in Soho and The Meat Packing District where you can easily find one of a kind items.
After so much shopping and sightseeing, you can unwind back at The Plaza Hotel with a trip to the spa followed by a drink in The Champagne Bar which overlooks Fifth Avenue and the Pulitzer Fountain. The Plaza Hotel is a hotel which redefines luxury and there is so much to do, you will not want to leave at the end of your stay!
