    Where Cary Grant got into trouble in North by Northwest - and Eloise frolicked. Once NYC's most famous luxury hotel, now a hybrid hotel/condo. It was glorious in the 1960s, a bit shabby in the 2000s. Read more

    One of the most well managed and up kept hotels. It's ultra clean, loads of personal touches were added to our stay. The champagne bar is stellar; bar upstairs was lacking in spirit selection.

    I love the Plaza Hotel. That's interesting news that the Beatles stayed at this Hotel in 1964. I wonder if though it's  true or if what Lawrence Davis writes is correct.. Read more

    If there is one hotel that represents Manhattan, then it is this one - having been a stage of many movies and stories. Although it is half condo now, this crown belongs to this venue. The Shops is fun

    For high tea at The Plaza there are absolutely no substitutions and minimal accommodations for those with food intolerances (read: that grilled cheese with cost you $50). Eloise would not approve.

    Great place to stay if you're separated from your family on the way to Miami. Handily, it will accept your dad's stolen credit card as payment. A warning: Mr Hector, the concierge, is a real bastard.

    Great spot for holiday decorations. Palm court looks fabulous but something tells me it would be absurdly expensive and probably only average at best. Recommend looking Vs buying

    Fell in love at their afternoon tea. The chef's tastings are expensive for a few dishes but worth the price, in my opinion.

    The afternoon tea idea is a scam. For 117$ person for small amount of tasteless sandwiches, tasteless desserts and big pot of tea. Save ur money and stay away.
