Plaza Athenee New York

My recent trip took me to New York. We knew we were off to a good start when checking into the PLAZA ATHENEE.

The upper east side of Manhattan is undoubtedly the most fashionable part of Manhattan and this hotel is discreetly located right in a tree lined, residential street, off  of Madison Avenue and 1.5 blocks off 5th Avenue. With just 142 guest rooms and suites, the hotel was our perfect venue for relaxing in it/s charming small lobby bar after a long day of exploring the city and before heading out for the city’s vibrant theater and nightlife.

We would recommend to request one of their suites with a glass enclosed atrium terrace as well as an outdoor balcony, with the glittering lights of the Manhattan skyline as the perfect backdrop . To sum it up – European grandeur with the intimacy of a boutique hotel.
