Exceptional 10.0
The Plaza
Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location on 5th Avenue and 59th Street. The subway is right next door and so is Central Park and all the museums and shopping. Spacious, comfortable rooms. Breakfast is pricey but your resort fee can go towards it or there are diners nearby.

Good 6.0
Didn’t live up to the hype
The room was in need of updating, some items required repairing, the air conditioning was noisy and the room iPad controls were unreliable. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and nice decor but there were very few plug sockets and no complimentary WiFi which you would expect for somewhere of this price. The communal areas didn’t feel welcoming due to the security for public visiting the hotel, and we were not given any information about the bar or restaurants so didn’t really know what was available and didn’t feel comfortable waking around to have a look ourselves to find out. Whilst staff were generally pleasant, once we checked out we were not offered any assistance with our heavy luggage. The hotel seems to be riding on its name and reputation rather than the quality and service that you actually receive. Glad we stayed at such an iconic hotel but think it is somewhat overrated and not worth the inflated price tag. I don’t think we’ll be returning.

Another one from the bucket list
My family had the best time! I promised my granddaughter when she was 5 years old that I would take her to where Eloise lived and to see her first Broadway show.. She just turned 18 and graduated from high school, so I kept my promise We stayed in an Edwardiam suite. The room was amazing and the staff was exceptional...nightly turn down.service with bottled water placed next to the bed, a complimentary copy of the NY times every morning....the Plaza is the very best!!

Visiting for a birthday and everything was perfect. The Plaza was by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The staff, especially at the Palm Court, were all so friendly and helpful. Thanks for making this such a memorable experience!

Unfortunately for me, the Plaza had no hot water during my stay. They were gracious enough to comp my room service bill but all I really wanted after a day of traveling from Europe was a shower.
