With its French Renaissance palace decor, the Plaza is one of the most beautiful hotels in New York. Built in 1907, it occupies a magnificent square building whose beautiful green roof with small towers overlook the southwest corner of Central Park. Its ground floor with its high ceilings hosts the lobby, boutiques, and restaurants. The decor is sumptuous, in the purest French Renaissance style: mosaic flooring, veined marble walls, frescoes, gold accents, huge glass chandeliers, superb turn of the century elevators. The facility does not only offer its guests a beautiful environment, but there is also a range of facilities and amenities that confirms its status as a 5-star New York hotel. The 10,760 ft² spa is impressive, with a jacuzzi of mosaic tiles, a beautiful sauna, massage rooms, a beauty salon for men and a mixed beauty salon. Finally, the fitness room next door is super-equipped, decorated on one whole wall with a reproduction of a view of Central Park.
