Star Status at Plaza Hotel

The Plaza Hotel is one of the most iconic grand hotels in Manhattan and has been filmed in a ton of movies and TV shows, making it that much more recognizable.   It’s right across the street from Central Park, and every time I walked outside of it there was a line of horse drawn carriages waiting to guide anyone interested through the park.  At night time, the entire hotel is lit up from the bottom up and the lights gleam over the water of the fountain in front. I loved this sight at night.

I learned while visiting that there is one presidential suite in the Plaza Hotel at the costly rate of $15,000 per night.  President Reagan was the only one to take advantage of this two –story suite with a private butler – The Plaza takes upscale to the next level.

The Oak Room is a famous landmark restaurant in NYC, located at the Plaza, often serving the famous as well. It was once a private men’s-only bar, and now is open to the public to see and be seen. The Plaza also has a great food hall, open to anyone who wants to dine- I didn't eat there but heard the food is excellent.  There are two bars on-site as well. This hotel really has everything you could want – prime park-side location, star status, excellent restaurants, uptown nightlife, and amazing 5-star accommodations.
