How it Ranks: The Plaza, A Fairmont Managed Hotel ranks #22 out of 816 New York City Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in New York City.

Our Take: One of Gotham's landmark hotels, The Plaza has asserted a steadfast place in American culture, appearing in films like "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Home Alone 2." Even Eloise (of the storybook series) has her own pink-striped suite, designed by Betsey Johnson. But this New York mainstay — an attraction in and of itself — is very much a luxury hotel, complete with white-gloved butlers. Many recent travelers say that staying here is an iconic experience, and the service, suites and even family-friendliness deserve major props. Previous visitors particularly highlight the Rose Club's plush seating and sophisticated ambiance as a must-do while staying here. The elegant Palm Court, Champagne Bar and Plaza Food Hall also earn a nod of approval from recent visitors for their romantic settings and delectable dishes. And as far as bedding down is concerned, recent guests have only positive things to say about the hotel's decadent accommodations, outfitted in Beaux Arts decor, ornate floral motifs and spacious marble bathrooms complete with signature toiletries.
