Opened in 1907, this landmark hotel in New York set the standard for luxury, which continues to this day. The Plaza – a Fairmont Managed Hotel’s iconic experience includes an on-site shopping centre, 24-hour butler service on request, a Guerlain spa and its iconic Beau-Arts décor. It is also home to a handful of restaurants and bars, including the stately Palm Court.

Sat on Fifth Avenue, opposite the Pulitzer Fountain, the hotel has a privileged location on the southern edge of Central Park. Designer shops are just steps away, with Bergdorf Goodman, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, Prada and Gucci within a quarter mile of the hotel. Times Square, Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the Museum of Modern Art are all under two miles away. Meanwhile, John F. Kennedy International Airport is approximately 17 miles away.

Classic, elegant accommodation feature 24-carat gold-plated hardware in generous bathrooms – some have baths and others, showers – as well as marble vanities and Guerlain toiletries. Most options have marble wet bars and microwaves, and all enjoy views of the city or an interior courtyard. Choose an Edwardian Suite – twice the size of a Standard room – for the most space.

Dining information

Known as the place to go for afternoon tea, Palm Court also offers breakfast, evening bites and cocktails surrounded by greenery under its stained-glass roof. You can catch breakfast at the Champagne Bar too, – try The Plaza Eggs Benedict, served with Canadian bacon. Later in the day, you can sample cocktails, caviar and of course, an extensive Champagne list. More casual dining is found in abundance at the Todd English food hall, where you can dine in or take away Asian and Italian cuisine, as well as tacos and crepes. The Rose Club is The Plaza’s former nightclub, which has hosted acts including Billie Holiday and Liza Minnelli – and it’s the perfect spot for a glamourous evening drink.
