Location. Striking a palatial presence by Central Park and Fifth Avenue, The Plaza is a New York legend, its very name synonymous with class. Guests can use the Plaza as a base for shopping, sightseeing and Broadway shows, all located within walking distance or easy rides. Following a $400 million, two year renovation, the Plaza has reopened in 2008.
Hotel Features. Built with all the pomp, glory and opulence of a French Chateau, The Plaza is exquisitely decorated, with remarkable elegance in each meticulous detail. The 18 story white brick and marble building was designed in the French Renaissance style in 1907, and is listed on the National Historic Landmarks Program. The Palm Court, known for its legendary Sunday brunches and afternoon teas, provides guests with a lavish, Old World garden setting complete with piano and violin music. The Plaza's world class retail collection boasts chic boutiques. Health and wellness facilities include a Caudalie Spa, Fitness Center by Radu and the Warren Tricomi Salon.

Guestrooms. The Plaza's 282 guestrooms are just as elegant, equipped with the original crystal chandeliers, formal drapes and carved plaster ceilings. Amenities include flat screen televisions and high speed Internet access. Sumptuous bathrooms offer fluffy heated towels.

Expert Tip. The Plaza stands along the west side of Grand Army Plaza, from which it derives its name, extending Central Park South in Manhattan. The Grand Army Plaza commemorates the Union Army in the Civil War.
