The majestic Plaza has epitomized New York luxury for decades, with its Beaux-Arts facade and opulent interiors featuring in a number of films and books. The pinnacle of its sumptuous Louis XV–style accommodations is the Royal Suite, which features a grand piano and a library personally curated by Prosper Assouline. For pampering and wellness, the hotel offers a Guerlain Spa, Warren-Tricomi Salon and La Palestra Fitness. If you’re keen to see the sights, The Plaza is walking distance from Rockefeller Center, and Central Park is on its doorstep. Make sure you talk to the concierge about arranging a personalized guided walking tour through this iconic park.
The Royal Suite from $40,000 per night. Contact David Rubianes, concierge, +1 212 546 5220, theplazany.com
