Fodor's Review

Eloise's adopted home on the corner of Central Park, the Plaza is one of New York's most storied hotels, hosting all manner of dignitaries, moneymakers, and royalty. This landmark property emphasizes service, with white-glove butlers for each guest room and suite, and in-room portable touch screens for contacting the concierge or just turning down the lights. The rooms themselves strike a balance between old-fashioned and modern: yes, there are flat-screen televisions and iPod docks, but the design is old school, with opulent gold-leaf fixtures, faux-fur throws, and big, BeauxArts-style headboards. An appealing, upscale food court in the basement, helmed by celebrity chef Todd English, serves everything from flatbread pizzas and sushi to tapas, wine, and a raw bar. There is an Eloise-themed tea served in the Palm Court. The expansive spa includes a hammam and a wine lounge.
