Why Stay At Hôtel Plaza Athénée
This grand yet intimate European-style hotel has a prestigious Upper East Side address, perfect for shoppers and culture types.
One of the few independent hotels left in Manhattan, this 142-room bijou is cherished by Europeans (and savvy celebrities) for its intimacy and attentive staff. Set on a quiet, tree-lined street off Madison Avenue, the hotel entry has a hushed, secret-garden ambience; guests check in while seated at an antique French desk, then pass huge granite urns of cascading flowers on their way to the elevators. Guest rooms are decorated with fanciful elegance—marble bathrooms, fine Italian linens, gold Paul Garnier wall clocks—while architectural drawings add a touch of civility to public spaces. In the afternoons, guests can join well-heeled locals for cocktails or afternoon tea in the dusky, leather-floored Bar Seine.
Be sure to introduce yourself to one of the two Clef d'Or concierges on staff, known to arrange for a Central Park picnic basket or a personal shopper at nearby Barneys or Bergdorf Goodman.
At the amber-lit Bar Seine, be sure to order the Crystal Cosmo (vodka, Cointreau, white cranberry juice, lime).
Arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), which is approximately 18 miles (30-50 minutes, depending on traffic) from the hotel.37 East 64th St, New York, New York, United States
