Hotel Plaza Athenee, New York Hotel Review

: While the opulence of this time-honored enclave makes it appear suitable only for royalty, mere mortals --- or rather, well-heeled commoners --- are heartily welcomed. This establishment is a quiet, rarified gem, and quality here is high in every sense. The lobby is a crystal-and-marble fantasy, with massive floral arrangements, murals, potted palms and Louis XVI furniture. The 142 guest rooms and suites are done in "contemporary European townhouse d├ęcor" with elegant patterns, leather and rich upholstery. All rooms have Wi-Fi and plasma TVs, and the bathrooms feature ever-so-lovely amenities from Penhaligon. Kick up the decadence another notch and stay in any of eight deluxe suites with dining rooms, terraces and/or solariums, iPod docking stations and huge plasma-screen TVs. The multilingual staff includes three Clefs d'Or concierges who can arrange an exclusive night on the town. A health lounge complete with exercise machines is open 24 hours a day. The Asian-style spa offers treatments with the Valmont skin care line. A lounge in the more traditional sense of the word, The Seine is arranged in Asian and Moroccan style, and serves well-executed cocktails and light fare including its signature "Valmont - Hike in the Glacier." The lavish dining room, Arabelle, serves modern American cuisine and is a favorite for Sunday brunch.
