After undergoing a $400 million transformation, the famous landmark hotel, that borders Central Park, has been infused with a new energy. The beloved hotel still retains old favorites including the decadent Beaux Arts décor and the legendary Oak Room and Oak Bar.

New additions to The Plaza Hotel are sure to create new memories in the Fifth Avenue lobby, the elegant Champagne Bar and stylish Rose Club.

  • Signature Miller Harris toiletries created exclusively for The Plaza
  • White glove butler service on every floor and twice daily housekeeping service.

    In addition to well-appointed guestrooms with the ultimate in personal amenities, the recent renovations have made room for the latest technology in each room. Technological amenities include:

  • Wireless high-speed Internet access
  • Touch panel screen to customize the room environment (which also connects guests with hotel services)
  • In-room DVD player
  • iLuv Stereo Audio System with

    The electronics are neatly tucked away, to maintain the integrity of the Beaux Arts inspired décor and chandeliers.

    The luxurious suites at The Plaza Hotel feature all of the same amenities as the guestrooms in addition to being nearly twice as large as the guestrooms. Suites include sitting areas and some also have a Butler's Pantry and an additional powder room. Views in the suites are some of the best the city has to offer. Suites may overlook city streets or offer an Interior Courtyard view and some even grant a bird's eye look at Central Park. The Royal Plaza Suite offers over 4,000 square feet of luxury, including: 3 bedrooms with their own entrances and 3 bathrooms, as well as a dining room that seats 12; even a grand piano.
