The Plaza Hotel, an emblem of luxury and history, is offering its prestigious penthouses for sale, with a price tag of $70 million. Nestled atop New York City’s most iconic hotel, these penthouses present a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. Overlooking Central Park, The Plaza has been the choice residence for foreign monarchs, titans of industry, and Hollywood royalty for more than a century and is featured in this week. Designed by Henry Janeway Hardenburg and crafted in a French Renaissance-inspired chateau style, the hotel opened its doors in 1907. It’s not just its guests that contribute to its fame; the Plaza has also served as a backdrop for numerous films and cultural moments.

Donald Trump, who purchased The Plaza in 1988 for $407.5 million, once said, “it isn’t just a building, it’s the ultimate work of art”. The hotel’s silver screen legacy includes appearances in classics from Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest” to “Home Alone.” Situated within this historic monument are two penthouses, now available for acquisition. The main triplex spans 6,316 square feet and features its own elevator, four bedrooms, and four-and-a-half baths. Its complement, a 3,974-square-foot duplex designed as a guest house, houses three bedrooms and three baths. These residences are defined by their luxurious materials, including marble and hardwood, and their exceptional Central Park and skyline vistas.

Each residence embodies opulence, from the double dressing rooms and spa baths of the primary suite to the white marble fireplace and elegant sitting room of the second suite. The formal living rooms, eat-in kitchens, and terraces are just a few of the spaces designed for high-end entertaining and leisure. Residents also enjoy access to The Plaza’s amenities, such as the Palm Court, Champagne Bar, and Guerlain Spa. Nestled in Midtown Manhattan, the penthouses are surrounded by the city’s most prestigious attractions and shopping avenues, making this offering not just a home but a slice of New York’s vibrant culture and history.

Celebrated for its illustrious past and luxurious offerings, The Plaza has been a home to many notable figures, from Tommy Hilfiger to the fictional Eloise, penned by Kay Thompson, a real-life resident of the hotel. The area’s popularity among celebrities, such as Taylor Swift and Hugh Jackman, underscores its allure and prestige.

The sale is managed by Nikki Field, Mara Flash Blum, and Sara Marrache of Sotheby’s International Realty, marking a unique opportunity to claim a piece of the world-renowned Plaza Hotel.
