We arrived early, and to no surprise, were told that our room was not ready. We left our bags with the bellman and left to eat lunch and wander... More

If you are looking for a hotel in a quiet neighborhood and yet walking distance to Central Park, try Hotel Plaza Athenee. This is one hotel that is true to luxury.

Small and intimate, refined and reserved in style, on a relatively quiet street, the hotel is a pleasant oasis whether you are traveling for business or pleasure. Service is personal and pleasant, food choice and quality as one would expect for a traditional luxury hotel. The property is slightly faded with paint work showing signs of wear and tear in...

Great location off the tourist side. Friendly staff and great service. Room was spacious and clean. Arrived late and was happy to find dinner at the bar. It is on the expensive side but then again its NYC!! It is worth it if you like the location. Will return.

Chose this hotel since I am a client of namesake hotel in Paris. Sadly no comparison. The perfect location and old world elegance of the lobby is quickly negated by the below par room.

A hotel full of New York character in one of the most attractive neighbourhoods of the city. Quiet location, nice rooms and very good service. Unfortunately one little flaw - the team was not able to retrieve a clothing item that was left behind in the room. Apart from that, a pleasant experience.

As usual had a great experience. It's one of my top go to places for business and pleasure in NYC. Great boutique feel. Staff is quite attentive. This particular time the front desk manager Omar Elnewishy was very responsive to our requests. So special shout out to him.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
