Waris Ahluwalia of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou fame kicked it a few hours by throwing an event in the space to show his new line of jewelry. In reality though, most penthouse terrace guests stay an average of two weeks says a rep. That's only $140K, or just undergraduate tuition at a first tier school. Pennies!
Yet remember, this is still The Plaza. It is not your "too-cool-for-school" party promoter's W Hotel. A publicist for the hotel describes the suites as "French Louis the 15th with modern accents." Those modern accents include a touch-screen panel that controls lighting, climate, the real butler, music, and other amenities just a privileged finger tap away.
But true to the old-money vibe are room descriptors like Grand Gallery, and Great Room where you'll find one of the fireplaces and some skylights. Besides white glove services you are also privy to the top of the line gym and spa facilities, the chicest of restaurants and bars that include The Oak Room and Rose Club. Hmm...in the famous words of Cinderella: "Some day our
sugar daddy prince will come."
