Plaza Hotel NYC Family Friendly

Recent Family Reviews:

  • "We stayed at the plaza hotel for 1 night over labor day weekend with our 1.5 year old daughter. This place is truly magical and lives up to its legacy."
  • "I was a bit concerned that as a family of 4, the Edwardian Suite, rather than 2 rooms would be a bit cramped. This was not the case, as the living room was big enough to accommodate a double sofa bed and a fold away single bed. The suite comes with 2 bathrooms, the main one being very well specified."

Does The Plaza really need an introduction? This classic and Hollywood-famous hotel, offers 282 rooms, including 102 luxurious suites, which boast the largest square footage of any luxury hotel in New York City. Entertainment for kids is just about built in, knowing The Plaza was the home of Eloise and the Home Alone 2 movie. But the views of Central Park and the 30 second walk to get there, along with the famous Apple store are sure to appeal to even the most selective of NYC visitors.
