Following a 2010 refurbishment, the elegant Plaza Athénée remains its traditional self, only newer. Discreetly tucked among townhouses on a residential street on the Upper East Side, the iconic property is a beacon of European style and taste, notable in the intricate wallpaper and ornate, gilded furnishings.

The hotel's 114 guest rooms and suites are carefully appointed, featuring a similar design aesthetic as the rest of the hotel, as well as uncommon amenities like kitchenettes and balconies. The best suites boast atrium-like, enclosed-glass balconies that illuminate the room and offer the perfect perch from which to take in the city below. There is a small spa and gym, but guests can also head to Central Park, only two blocks away, for exercise and fresh air. The beautiful Arabelle restaurant is an elegant spot for dinner, and the hotel further indulges European sensibilities with daily afternoon tea.
