TRUE MANHATTAN STYLE
NEW YORK DRINKING HOLES
Characterized by its bright red-domed awnings and large bronze logo inscripted on the sidewalk, New York’s Hôtel Plaza Athénée has regally resided at 37 East 64th Street between Park and Madison Avenues since 1984. This discreet 143-room hotel has been a home away from home to travelers, celebrities and titans of industry who appreciate its luxurious and discreet style, personal attention by the long-term staff and superb Upper East Side Manhattan location.
LOCATIONA 45 minute drive by private car and even shorter helicopter ride from JFK international airport will have us weaving in and out of yellow cabs before arriving at one of the most admired address in Manhattan: the Upper East Side. Just a shopping bag away from Madison Avenue and a block from Central Park, this is the ideal location for city shopping and culture seekers such as us.
OUR ROOMPure decadence oozes from every inch of our luxury pad. No two rooms are the same, but feature rich Italian Sferra linens, luxurious Asian inspired silks and warm tones which showcase their European style. A selection of guest rooms and suites are decked out with enlarged marble bathrooms and deep soaking tubs with dual sinks, as well as birch hardwood floors to strut our stuff around. With dazzling views of the glittering New York skyline, it’s the perfect backdrop for a romantic night in or to simply recuperate after burning a hole in (y)our pocket down Madison Avenue. For the crème de la crème we can check into the Presidential Suite, boasting 2,000 square feet of luxurious space, it’s bigger than most New Yorkers’ apartments. Well at least bigger than my first one on 14th St.
WHY I LIKE ITAfter wandering the ‘city that never sleeps’ sights, there is nothing greater than escaping to The Plaza Athénée Spa. Featuring four Asian themed private treatment suites it is the epitome of luxury and indulgence, and designed with natural elements offering the comfort and splendour for which the hotel has become known. My favourite (and keeping with the Asian theme) is the Thai massage - YES!!!, I felt like I was walking in a new body after that hour. If that’s not enough the Plaza Athénée Spa is the only luxury hotel spa in NYC that hosts Valmont Cosmetics skin care all the way from Switzerland. Using natural ingredients Valmont rejuvenises the skin leaving one feeling inspired and ready to hit the city. Let the sparkle begin!
