It’s hard to pick just one thing that makes The Plaza Hotel stand out from other luxury hotels in New York City. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel has been a staple in New York luxury and pop culture for more than a century, serving as the inspiration and backdrop for countless books and movies, including F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, The Way We Were, Funny Girl and Home Alone II: Lost in New York. Not surprisingly, The Plaza is also a favorite hotel among celebrity guests. Hundreds of movie stars, musicians, politicians, authors and athletes have spent time at The Plaza over the years, from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to The Beatles to Catherine Zeta-Jones and everyone in between.
