If You Get to Turn 60, The Plaza NY is the Place!
I chose to turn 60 at the Plaza, and from the initial greeting when I booked; through to the final farewell from the doorman, I was made to feel very, very special. Knowing that this was an not entirely within my budget, the concierge suggested that I book through Expedia for myself and two best friends, but once the booking was made the hotel staff would take care of me. She could not have been more true to her word. To begin, my room was upgraded to a deluxe suite, complete with King size bed, queen size pullout in the sitting room for my friends, and a bathroom complete with claw-foot tub, oh yes...I had a butler as well who delivered birthday treats throughout my stay, including cocktails in the Palm, and a birthday cake and card from Geoffrey Zakarian.
One gentleman, Tyler, Assistant Guest Relations Manager, oversaw and I suspect arranged everything. He seemed to take so much joy in the details of my visit and turned my stay from lovely to life altering (I know that sounds dramatic, but he made me feel like all these wonderful things that happened, was just how life should be.) I understand as well that Tyler provided invaluable help to my friends when making additional arrangements during my stay, rescuing them from a few planning disasters.
I have been to many hotels in New York, many four star, the staff have consistently made me feel, that I was privileged to stay with them. Tyler, and all the staff at the Plaza made me feel that they were lucky to have me.
