After almost three years of extensive renovations at a staggering cost of US$400 million, New York’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 décor 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 hotel’s concierge services while also serving as a remote for the room’s ambience.

The hotel’s iconic Palm Court, Oak Room and Bar, and the famous Grand Ballroom – scene of author Truman Capote’s masked extravaganza, the Black & White Ball in 1966 – have also been painstakingly restored to their former glories.
