The train station that is closest to The Plaza Hotel is either Grand Central or Penn Station. Grand Central is located on the east side of New York at 42nd Street between Lexington and Park avenues. Penn Station sits on the west side of the city at 34th Street and 8th Avenue, right next to Madison Square Garden. From either train station, it’s a short cab ride to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. Taxis are easy to come by, but if you’re arriving at Penn Station, be prepared to wait in line for a cab. If you feel a bit more comfortable navigating public transportation, after arriving at Penn Station, hop on the N, R or F trains and head uptown. From Grand Central, the best subway to take is the 6 train uptown to 59th Street, then transfer to the N or R train and go one stop to 59th Street and 5th Avenue. From there, you’ll step outside right next to The Plaza Hotel.
