Welcome to my New York City series, “N Y C-eries!”
This post is all about one of the most famous hotels in all of New York City, the Plaza Hotel. The Plaza Hotel is located at 768 5th Ave, New York, NY 10019. The Plaza is the scene of many movies and t.v. shows, such as Home Alone 2, The Great Gatsby, 101 Dalmatians, Eloise, Sleepless in Seattle, my favorite movie of all time, Bride Wars, and many more. I hope to stay at the Plaza Hotel on one of my future New York City visits, and if my dream wedding were to come true, it would take place at the Plaza Hotel!
On the lowest level of the Plaza Hotel is the Eloise Boutique, the most precious gem ever! Eloise is one of the Plaza Hotel’s most famous residents, as she came alive through just a book published in 1955. The Eloise Boutique is truly the place to shop all things Eloise. Children can even host their birthday parties at the Eloise Boutique! On Friday afternoons with prior reservation, you can attend “Eloise’s Rather Fancy Teas,” and catch other fancy events from time to time. You can also order from an Eloise Menu at the Plaza’s restaurant, The Palm Court. There is an all day Eloise menu, as well as an Eloise tea menu. All foods on these menus are Eloise taste, such as chicken fingers, burgers, pink vanilla cotton candy, an Eloise root beer float, an Oreo macaron, cold pink lemonade, and much more! You can view the Eloise menus as well as regular menus of The Palm Court here: https://www.theplazany.com/dining/the-palm-court/. When I visited the Eloise boutique, I purchased three Eloise postcards that I posted on my bulletin board that are adorable! I can only dream of taking my daughter to the Plaza Hotel to do all the Eloise things one day :)
The Plaza Hotel also features a large portrait of Eloise in the lobby, as well as another in the Eloise boutique. Many people do not know this, but The Plaza also has an entire one-bedroom Eloise suite (adjacent to a Nanny suite), starting at $1000 per night, completely decorated in all pink and Eloise. You can read all about the Eloise suite and see photos here: https://www.theplazany.com/rooms-and-suites/eloise-one-bedroom-king/.
The Plaza Hotel also features the Royal Suite, starting at $35,000 per night. The Royal Suite features three bedrooms, a private elevator, a fitness room, a white glove butler service, a grand piano, a 12 person dining table, and many more special accommodations. You can see photos and learn more about the Royal Suite here: https://www.theplazany.com/rooms-and-suites/royal-suite-three-bedroom/.

On my visits to New York City, I love to explore new things inside the Plaza Hotel each time, as it is also neighbors with my favorite NYC store, Bergdorf Goodman. The Plaza Hotel houses several restaurants, such as The Palm Court, The Rose Club for cocktails, The Champagne Bar, and more! The Plaza’s lower level features The Plaza Food Hall, which I highly recommend dining at for a grab-and-go breakfast, or for a nice lunch!
Here are some of my photos from visiting the Plaza Hotel:
Here are some of my photos from the Eloise Boutique! I am so obsessed!!! You can shop anything and everything Eloise inside this gorgeous and large boutique!
Also, inside of the Plaza Boutique, I discovered one of my favorite New York artists, Michael Storrings! His prints are sold all over New York City in luxury stores. These were two of my favorites I found!
On your next visit to New York City, make sure to reserve some time to explore the Plaza Hotel! Research on it’s rich and interesting history, and you may learn of a new secret spot to check out inside!
