I've reviewed it before and I still think it's the best location in the city for families and shopping. The plaza is my go to hotel in NYC. I've tried others but always come back here. For me the plaza is the center of the city.
This time we stayed in a Terrace Suite. We were supposed to have an edwardian suite but when we checked in they asked if we wanted to upgrade to the terrace suite and we decided to do it. It was not a complementary upgrade, I am never the girl who wins the hotel room lottery. We paid a lot more than we were going to for the edwardian suite but you only live once.
The suite was beautiful, two stories, with the one bedroom upstairs. The downstairs had a living room, an office, a small kitchen area and a full bathroom. The terrace was off the bedroom and overlooked 58th street. For the most part the suite was super clean and the bathrooms are spotless. The only exception was the couch in the living room. It was borderline yucky. I could have complained but we just grabbed some of the big bath Towels and put them down over the cushions.
While I loved the room, for a family with small children this suite would not be ideal. We have a 4 year old and I was very conceded about him falling down the large set of wood stairs. If you have kids younger I would say this is not the room for you.
The best part of the room aside from the very large terrace with a great city view was the master bathroom. It was beautiful and had a heated floor. Which was perfect for feet that were tired from the endless amounts of walking you do in NYC.
The plaza is a great hotel for families , the service is good, It's clean, it's safe and the location is ideal.
