It was once said, "Nothing unimportant ever happens at the Plaza." One of America's most celebrated hotels, The Plaza opened its doors on October 1, 1907, amid a flurry of impressive reports describing it as the greatest hotel in the world. Located at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, it was constructed in the most fashionable residential section of New York. A century ago, The Plaza set the standard for luxury. That tradition continues following a recently-completed $400 million, two-year renovation. The passion and uncompromising service, which made the hotel a legend, has returned with a new and contemporary spirit. The Plaza hotel offers 282 distinctive guestrooms, including 152 pied-à-terres, which boast the largest square footage of any luxury property in New York. From the sumptuous décor to the impeccable white glove service, The Plaza is an extraordinary hotel that offer its guests every indulgence. Amenities include a world-class retail collection featuring exclusive boutiques and purveyors of fine food, as well as health and wellness facilities to include a Caudalie Spa, Fitness Center by Radu, and Warren Tricomi Salon.

The legendary Oak Room and Bar provide the quintessential New York experience, and now serve breakfast in the Palm Court's stead. The Plaza will also introduce the elegant Champagne Bar and stylish Rose Club, both located in its new Fifth Avenue lobby. 24-hour in room dining will also be available.

As part of the lobby to roof renovation, the opulent Plaza Grand Ballroom has also been restored to its original grandeur. Lavish social and business events will continue to be held in this historic ballroom, which is at the heart of The Plaza’s legacy.

Timeless. Captivating. Unforgettable. All its Beaux Arts magnificence it sets a new standard for luxury and will return to creating indelible memories at New York’s most celebrated address.

History of the Plaza

The Plaza was the dream of financier Bernhard Beinecke, hotelier Fred Sterry and Harry S. Black, President of the Fuller Construction Company. They purchased a 15-year-old hotel of the same name on the site. The three men set out to replace it with what is surely one of the most elegant hotels in the world.

Construction of the 19-story building (a skyscraper back then) took two years at a cost of $12 million - an unprecedented sum in those days. Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, who also designed the Dakota apartments, the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. and The Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston, set about his task to provide all the pomp, glory, and opulence of a French chateau. No cost was spared. The largest single order in history for gold-encrusted china was placed with L. Straus & Sons, and no less than 1,650 crystal chandeliers were purchased.

Originally, The Plaza served primarily as a residence for wealthy New Yorkers. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt were the first to sign the register. Today, the Vanderbilt Suite is a luxuriously appointed three-bedroom suite, and is used by Heads of State, Government and other distinguished visitors. For guests who chose to rent on a nightly basis at the time, single rooms started at $2.50 per night!

Kings, presidents, ambassadors, stars of stage, screen and sports, as well as business executives and travellers from all parts of the world have gathered and stayed at The Plaza. One of The Plaza's most famous personalities is the fictional and mischievous Eloise from the books by Kay Thompson. The Plaza was so well known that Ernest Hemingway once advised F. Scott Fitzgerald to give his liver to Princeton and his heart to The Plaza.

Although The Plaza appeared fleetingly in earlier films, the hotel made its true movie debut in Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic North by Northwest - the first time a crew, director and cast assembled on site to make a picture. Before then, movies were shot almost entirely on Hollywood soundstages and rarely on location. The Plaza has provided the location for other motion pictures such as Plaza Suite, The Way We Were, The Great Gatsby, Barefoot in the Park, Funny Girl, Cotton Club, Crocodile Dundee I and II and Home Alone II: Lost In New-York.

Designated a New York City Landmark in 1969, The Plaza is listed on the Register of Historic Places and the only New York City hotel to be designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Best Rate Guarantee

Which New York hotels qualify for the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee? Almost all of them! Just look for the Best Rate Guarantee Seal when you are searching for your New York hotel.

We stand behind your reservation and our Best Rate Guarantee.
Unlike other so called guarantees, the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee
doesn't expire after 24 hours.

The NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee protects your wallet and takes the worry out of booking a hotel room. Because of the large volume of New York City lodging reservations we process, we are able to negotiate special rates with New York City hotels. All e-$aver Rate Hotel reservations booked through NYC.com are guaranteed to be the lowest rate available for that hotel. After you book with NYC.com, if you find a lower publicly available rate online for the same dates, hotel, and room category, we will match the price and refund you the difference.

And unlike other so called "Guarantees," we will match the price right up to the time of the hotel's cancella- tion deadline, whether that is three days after you made the booking or three months. So stop worrying and start booking.
