If you’re in the mood to shop, you’ve come to the right place at The Plaza Hotel. Venture outside the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and discover Fifth and Madison Avenues, both lined with an extensive selection of luxury shops. Choose from department stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Barneys — all a stone’s throw from the New York City hotel. Henri Bendel is also nearby, as is the Apple Store, Dylan’s Candy Bar, the NBC Universal Store, and more. Walk toward the city’s west side and you’ll reach the Time Warner Center just a few blocks from the luxury hotel. There you’ll find more mainstream shops like J.Crew, Coach and lots of places to grab a quick bite. If you just don’t feel like leaving the hotel, the retail collection at The Plaza itself is tough to beat. Shops include Morgenthal Frederics, Assouline and — a New York favorite — Eloise at The Plaza.
