Experience the roaring twenties by staying in The Fitzgerald Suite at The Plaza Hotel in New York. Designed by Academy Award winner Catherine Martin, costume designer, production designer and co-producer of Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby”, the suite is a dramatic art deco space that channels the dynamism of the Jazz Age.
The suite is furnished exclusively by Restoration Hardware to reflect the luxury and style of the era, which captivated Fitzgerald and drew him to The Plaza, inspiring its inclusion in his great works. Every detail of the suite relates to Fitzgerald’s life and his time at The Plaza as well as Baz Luhrmann’s film. Dome ceilings surrounded by antique mirrors feature 1920’s Odeon Glass Fringe Chandeliers. The bedspread and towels are custom embroidered with the Jay Gatsby and Daisy-inspired monogram, seen frequently throughout the film.
The walls are adorned with portraits of the 2013 film cast captured by legendary Hollywood photographer Douglas Kirkland, images of Fitzgerald and his wife, and 1920s photos from Vogue and Vanity Fair. Bookshelves are filled with the author’s complete works and books that inspired the filmmakers throughout production, as well as classic RH accessories that include vintage-inspired trophy urns modeled on a sporting prize from the 1920s, cast-iron Brooklyn Bridge bookends and timeless 1920s French Glass Cloches.
Guests will also find entertainment in RH’s vintage board games, including Monopoly, which originated during the era, iconic Gramophone-shaped iPhone and iPad speakers, custom Tiffany & Co. playing cards, and coffee table books that invoke languorous summers on the Gold Coast or the vibrant New York of the Roaring Twenties.
The package includes:
Accommodations for two in The Fitzgerald Suite
Moët Imperial Gatsby cocktails for two in The Rose Club
Daily American Breakfast for two in The Palm Court
Bottle of Moët champagne upon arrival
The Plaza branded set of ‘His & Her’ flasks to take home
