Average time to visit

Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon.

September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.

Insider's View

The Plaza's food hall is a foodies delight. From Billy's Bakery, Viva le Crepe to Luke's Lobster and Olma Caviar, there's everything you could crave from an indulgent breakfast to a mid-night snack!

Pre-book in advance for afternoon tea at the Palm Court as it does get booked up, and for children pre-book the Eloise tea which is especially fun

The location of this hotel is just perfect for shopping, but also being moments away from Central Park, it's great for an afternoon stroll
