The Hotel Plaza Athenee is a firm favourite among the stars, and one look inside this lavish establishment and you’ll see just why.
The Upper East Side-based luxury boutique hotel has become popular with celebrities, foreign dignitaries and even the occasional member of royalty over the years… and for good reason.
The Plaza Athenee is one of the most well-known 5-star hotels in New York, with exquisite decor and luxury furnishings throughout. The hotel lends its style from classic French decor, and there’s a distinctly Parisian aesthetic throughout the 143-room property.
But while the property breathes opulence, despite the upper-end interior and prestigious list of former guests, renting a room for a few nights won’t set you back as much as you might think.
Book at the right time and you could snap up a room for less than $400. Okay, so it’s not exactly the bargain of the century, but what do you expect when you could be rubbing shoulders with some of Tinseltown’s best-known stars!?
