After almost three years of extensive renovations at a staggering cost of US$400 million, New Yorkâ€™s most famous hotel finally reopens its doors.
The Plaza, which is now a National Historic landmark, first opened in 1907.
With 282 rooms and 182 private residences, each furnished in Louis XV French dÃ©cor style, the six-star Plaza Hotel at the crossroads between Fifth Avenue and Central Park continues to re-define luxury since its doors open to receive guests a century ago.
A wireless touch-screen panel in each room connects you to the hotelâ€™s concierge services while also serving as a remote for the roomâ€™s ambience.
The hotelâ€™s iconic Palm Court, Oak Room and Bar, and the famous Grand Ballroom â€“ scene of author Truman Capoteâ€™s masked extravaganza, the Black & White Ball in 1966 â€“ have also been painstakingly restored to their former glories.
