Charming Upper East Side Hotels

What draws people to Upper East Side hotels? Their rich history and enduring charm! The hotels on the Upper East Side are among the oldest hotels in New York City, and while many of these NY hotels have been renovated in recent years, all continue to retain their allure.

The Plaza Hotel, for example, was first built in 1907 on the west side of Grand Army Plaza. When the hotel first opened, rooms cost as little as $2.50 a night (the equivalent of $59 today). Today, The Plaza is one of the most famous hotels in NYC. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1978, and is one of only two hotels (the Waldorf Astoria is the other) to be designated as such. The Plaza's reputation is such that Ernest Hemingway once advised F. Scott Fitzgerald to give his liver to Princeton and his heart to The Plaza.
