Inside The Plaza, New York’s Iconic Hotel At Central Park

Christopher Parr | Pursuitist

Take a stroll down Central Park West and come face to face with a veritable living legend of hospitality: the history, the tradition, the old world charm. Welcome to The Plaza, the home of Eloise.

One of the world’s most iconic hotels has, in the past few years, undergone a transformation merging old world ambience with all the latest and greatest of modern luxury. The Plaza manages a seamless fusion of white-glove service, timeless elegance and the latest innovations of today’s world.

The famous, elegant Champagne Bar remains one of the places to see and be seen, while The Plaza Food Hall offers nine distinct stations; everyone can indulge at this extraordinary hotel. And you must, must, MUST make reservations for the Eloise Tea at The Palm Court, the Plaza Hotel’s iconic, swanky venue for high-end breakfast, afternoon tea & evening cocktails. The Eloise Tea is essentially a delicious special menu geared towards children with everything that Eloise would adore eating. Before or after your Eloise Tea, also visit Eloise’s Shops downstairs at the Plaza Hotel.

Spacious guest rooms boast 24-carat, gold-plated sinks and fixtures, along with iPads – The Plaza was actually the first hotel to offer that amenity, allowing guests the opportunity to order in-room dining, make restaurant reservations, chat with the concierge, check airline schedules and print boarding passes, all without ever getting out of bed.

With it’s uncompromising service still intact, this legendary hotel has only improved with age.
