10.0 Excellent
Spectacular service. Wonderful, helpful staff. Great food and desserts. Spotless room. 5 out of 5 across the board.
10.0 Excellent
The room was remarkably clean. Great housekeeping.
5.1 Passable
Pros:The hotel is a landmark. It is in a great location and gives great access to Central Park. It is also not too far of a walk to the theater district. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable.
Cons:The staff seemed indifferent. The revolving door wasn't working, so we had to go in through side doors. The doormen (sometimes as many as three) just stood around watching, not helping at all with the doors, which were heavy. Breakfast in the lobby: we were seated and I asked the purpose seating us to bring coffee. He said the server would be right with us. After 5 minutes there was no server to been seen. Why didn't the person seating us just bring us coffee? Very mediocre attitude. This hotel was not at all worth the price we paid.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything was great about the Plaza! The hotel staff was so nice. They were always asking us how we were doing and if we needed anything. Our room was amazing! Very luxurious! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The mini bar was filled with all kinds of drinks and snacks. I think our favorite part was the bathroom. The walk in shower with the huge shower head was ginormous! The tub was rather large too! Everything was very very clean. It felt like it was brand new and we were the first people to stay in it! The hotel location was great also. Central Park and a subway station is right across the street so it was quite easy going to and from the Yankees games. We will definitely stay at the Plaza again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Location is great. Staff were all curteous and prompt. Room size was good and everything was clean and new. Breakfast at Palm Court was good. Will stay again.
6.0 Okay
Cons:Service was terrible, our flight got delayed, we called to tel them know, when we got there they had charged us for the first night and they didnt have a room for us!!!! On top of the night manager on our last night was really rude... I will go to the St Regis next time...
