Suite of the week: the elegant Classic Suite at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, New York


For those of you who have been to New York, one can definitely say “There’s no place like New York”. The Big Apple is one of the most sought-after metropolitan destinations in the world with its iconic Manhattan skyline, the uber glamorous Times Square and the drop-dead gorgeous landscape of Central Park. Of course, staying on the Upper East Side is mandatory! I mean why would one stay elsewhere if you can be perched between Park & Madison Avenue. And, Hôtel Plaza Athénée is undoubtedly our numero uno choice when it comes to a lavish New York stay.


Just a stone’s throw away from Madison Avenue boutiques, galleries and museums, this boutique hotel is an intriguing blend of classic French-inspired style and Manhattan’s uptown chic. While hand-painted murals, Italian marble, French antiques and luxe furnishings grace the beautiful building, our favorite element of this hotel is the distinct residential style the guestrooms and suites entail.

The Classic Suite Hôtel Plaza Athénée has been our preferred choice for a while. Spanning 670 sq ft, the spacious one-bedroom suite offers unprecedented views of the gorgeous Manhattan skyline. The suite entails elegant European townhouse décor with front facing views of the residences on this tree-lined street. Walk into the grand master bedroom or lounge in the separate living room. Breakfasts are family-style with Nespresso machines and fully equipped kitchenettes en-suite. The marble-clad bathroom features Bulgari toiletries, dual sinks, a shower area and a deep soaking tub, while the additional half bathroom lies near the living room area.
