You'd Be Surprised How Much it Costs to Live in NYC’s Iconic Plaza Hotel

Described by Forbes as New York’s most movie-centric hotel, living at The Plaza has become something of a cinematic fantasy. From the home of mischievous but lovable Eloise (Eloise at The Plaza) to notable appearances in films like Home Alone 2, The Great Gatsby, Bride Wars, and The Way We Were, the property has solidified its reputation on the big screen as a place of style, class, and old-world sophistication. Still, ever wonder what it’s actually like to live at the iconic property? Or what’s more, how much it would cost? 

One only has to look towards the most recently listed unit in the building for answers to these questions. As Mansion Global reports, a five-bedroom condo in the building has just been put up for sale and priced at $50 million; it’s currently the most expensive unit available in the Central Park–adjacent building. Listed through Jill Sloane of Brown Harris Stevens, the 4,500-square-foot duplex—unit 1607—features stunning views of the park in addition to large living and dining spaces, a media area, and gourmet kitchen. Spread across two levels, the condo has a slight European touch with four of the bedrooms confined to the lower floor while the shared rooms exist on the upper. “Every detail, from the high-end appliances in the chef’s kitchen to the custom cabinetry and exquisite finishes throughout, exudes sophistication and refinement,” Sloan told the publication. 

According to the report, the unit started as two separate residences before its current owner, a corporation, combined them into one. In addition to being the priciest, it also has the most bedrooms of any of the building’s condos on the market (there are currently 32 available, per StreetEasy). However, 1607 isn’t the largest home available—that title goes to unit 1007/1009, a four-bed, French-inspired condo asking $38 million. Other available pads range in price from 
$850,000 for a 476-square-foot studio to a 3,698-square-foot four bed priced at $15.9 million. 

World War II, when many hotels began renting rooms as apartments to make up income following a lack of guests. A 2008 renovation of the French Renaissance–inspired hotel welcomed condos, which made it possible to own a residence in the château-like building. As Sloan told Mansion Global, living in the iconic landmark also offers certain perks, including a personalized concierge and butler service, 24-hour in-room dining offerings, and twice-daily housekeeping.
