Merry Christmas Eve from the Plaza Hotel!
Nothing says Christmas like the glittering twinkle light displays of the boutiques on Fifth Avenue leading up to the famed Plaza Hotel. The only hotel in NYC designated as a historic landmark, the Plaza has seen presidents, ambassadors, celebrities and travelers from all over the world since it’s opening in 1907. Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, who also designed the Dakota apartments, set about his task to provide all the pomp, glory, and opulence of a French chateau. No cost was spared. Fun fact: The largest single order in history for gold-encrusted china was placed with L. Straus & Sons, and no less than 1,650 crystal chandeliers were purchased.
Ascending those iconic red carpeted steps and sipping a drink in the exclusve Champagne Bar is one of our favorite things to do during this time of year.
Wishing all of you a magical holiday season!
