One of the most well-respected hotels in the world, New York City's Hotel Plaza Athenee provides European grandeur with the intimacy of a boutique hotel. The hotel has recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation of guest rooms and suites and the Hotel Plaza Athenee's prime location on the fashionable Upper East Side of Manhattan makes it an ideal venue for the discerning traveller.
Hotel Plaza Athenee sets the standard in New York for luxury boutique hotels. It offers unparalleled, personalised attention and elegant accommodation as well as an excellent location. The hotel is situated on a tree-lined street and surrounded by elegant townhouses in down town Manhattan, a short walk from Central Park. Hotel Plaza Athenee event spaces are suitable for both corporate and social events including cocktail receptions, gala dinners and presentations. These ornate and sophisticated spaces are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on all who visit.
Decorated in the style of a European townhouse it offers 142 luxury hotel rooms and suites, featuring plush fabrics, marble bathrooms and glass atrium style balconies with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. All guest rooms are adorned with fine Italian linens, Asian inspired silks and contemporary French influenced furnishings. The Penthouse Suite is a 2-story duplex suite on the 16th and 17th floors of the hotel. This luxurious hotel suite features a spacious glass-enclosed atrium terrace with couch and seating areas and an outdoor balcony which wraps around half the length of the hotel, ideal for entertaining.
The hotel also features two lavish Presidential suites set over 2,000 square feet of space. The hotel’s stylish in-house restaurant is the award-winning Arabelle, featuring fine, modern American cuisine and a stunning gold-domed ceiling. Equally decadent is the Bar Seine lounge, offering an exotic amber-lit blend of African, European and Asian-inspired furnishings and décor as well as a unique bar menu. Home to the “crystal cosmopolitan”, Bar Seine is considered to be one of the most romantic spots in New York City. It can be reserved for private parties, weddings, corporate meetings and special occasions.
Le Trianon is an elegantly appointed, versatile function space featuring subtle earth tones with ten windows providing natural daylight. Le Trianon I and II can be expanded into one large space to house banquets and wedding receptions up to 100 guests, or converted into smaller, separate spaces to accommodate smaller event needs. The Private Dining Room is an intimate space that accommodates up to 24 guests. This space is the perfect setting for small family gatherings, rehearsal dinners, wedding-related parties and birthdays.
Built in 1927 as the Hotel Alrae, the landmark building became the Hotel Plaza Athenee, New York in 1984. The hotel has undergone two multi-million dollar refurbishment projects in recent years - the first was completed in 1994, and the second in 2010. The latest refurbishment includes the renovation of the majority of guestrooms and suites, the addition of four premier luxury suites, a new lobby look, a spacious fitness centre and business centre, and the addition of a new spa. Great care was taken to ensure that the renovations respected the architectural tradition of the 1927 masterpiece, including the restoration of the elegant canvas mural that dominates the hotel's lobby.
