"Plain and simple, not a finer hotel in New York."
I travelled to New York last week and had the great pleasure of staying at The Lowell for the first time. A dear friend recommended the Lowell and it exceeded my expectations.
The Lowell could not have provided a lovelier, silkier stay for me. Absolute perfection. John, the concierge, was aware my stay coincided with my birthday and a bottle of champagne and a chocolate birthday cake were awaiting me in my room. I've no doubt, had I asked, a dozen staff would have been upstairs singing "Happy Birthday" to me, just because that's the perfect elegance of The Lowell.
The hotel is absolute perfection; I cannot wait to return. And I had the great privilege of seeing the Pope to boot! His Holiness would have loved The Lowell.
Kindest regards to everyone who made my stay an absolute joy.

Only one negative thing to say and that was the late at night noise of either construction or removal of street debris?? We could never figure out what the cause of this noise was but, it woke us up several times during the nights we were there.
I stayed at Plaza Athenee because my usual hotel was fully booked during my trip to New York, but it won't be my last. This will be my first choice from now on.
I arrived hours before the normal check in time, and although it was a terribly busy week in NY due to Pope Francis' visit and the UN Assembly meeting, the staff was quite accommodating and facilitated my early check in.
Rick, one of the Consierge was friendly, professional and always eager to assist. The rest of the hotel staff was also friendly and accommodating.
Plaza Athenee is centrally located; just steps away from Central Park, in a lovely neighborhood, and it stands with all the high end boutique. I highly recommend this hotel.
This spot is very quiet and I stayed with 3 visiting teens from Florida. They slept in the pullout sofa very comfortably and I took the bedroom. There's a small kitchen area, small bathroom but the host is wonderful with a great breakfast offering, delivered exactly when promised and it was plentiful.
We needed a spot to sleep after seeing US Open Tennis that went late to midnight so it was a great respite, just a bit far east in NYC from the subway.
Of all the superlatives used to describe the Upper East Side, one word is apt: richest. Some of the city’s wealthiest residents live in the high rises that line Fifth Avenue. Be prepared to spend an entire day at the Museum of Metropolitan Art. Both a physical and art-world behemoth, the Met is home to several masterworks, from an intact ancient Nubian temple to post-modern color studies.
