Located in Manhattan's Upper East Side just one short block from Central Park, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée New York combines European elegance with the intimacy of a boutique hotel. Recently renovated, the luxury hotel is a welcome retreat after a day of shopping and museum hopping (MoMA and the Whitney Museum are nearby). Step off the tree-lined residential street and into the hotel's refined lobby, and you'll see why so many guests return again and again. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and each guest receives excellent personal attention upon arrival, along with twice-daily maid service, 24-hour concierge service and 24-hour room service. The hotel offers a lot of complimentary services, too, including use of the business center and fitness center, choice of morning newspapers, overnight shoe shine, and complimentary tea/coffee service daily between 5:00-6:30 a.m.

Ever since its debut in 2010, Cassa Hotel & Residences has won the hearts of hotel guests for its striking design and lavish amenities (like 42-inch LCD TVs, walk-in rainshowers, and Angelo Caroli bath products). New York Magazine recently praised the hotel known for its celebration of "design, unique experiences, and a touch of drama." (Almost immediately after opening, the hotel unveiled an "in-house exhibit presented by the Showtime TV network in which noted designers transformed several suites into whimsical interpretations of the channel's fall shows.")
