Rare Top Floor Apartment at New York City’s Famed Plaza Hotel Hits the Market for $15.9 Million

A rare corner apartment at the top of New York City’s famed Plaza Hotel is now on the market for $15.9 million. The 2-story, 4,000-square-foot apartment has 4 bedrooms and bathrooms and is within the private residences of the hotel on the southeast corner of Central Park. The historic Plaza Hotel, designed in French Renaissance chateau-style and built at the beginning of the 20th century, has been featured countless times in pop culture in movies, television shows, and books. The top floors are private apartments that are connected to the hotel, providing access to its many amenities, including twice-daily housekeeping, 24-hour room service, butler service, and a concierge. The living room is one of the largest in the hotel, with a 12-foot-high ceiling, a gas fireplace, several sitting areas, and a bar. Its large dining room has two French doors overlooking the hotel’s courtyard gardens and fountains below. It’s the master bedroom, however, that’s the stand-out feature for most potential buyers, described as a quiet oasis with substantial closets and an enormous spa-like bath. The kitchen sports marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Additionally, the owner will have direct access to the hotel’s Palm Court, Champagne Bar, Rose Club, Warren Tricomi Salon, Grand Ballroom, Guerlain Spa, fitness center, shops, and the private gardens. The bonus is that being in the corner apartment at Fifth Avenue makes Central Park your backyard.
