    Staff, Hotel, Room were all excellent! 100% satisfied!

    The car valet company that the Plaza uses rummaged through my wife's Range Rover and left it a mess. Don't care about the few $$$ they took, its the principle that this shouldn't happen. Not the Plaza's fault, but be careful.

    Bed was very comfortable, excellent gym facilities and bar/afternoon tea was lovely.

    Staff treated us as if we could not afford to stay there.

    Renovation of the building from outside was little appealing given the aura and fame it is suppose to portray. That was a downside. Hope for a better view next time
