Synopsis

(Applause Books). Since it first opened its doors in October 1907, the Plaza has been the hub of glamour and culture in New York. It is where F. Scott Fitzgerald lived during the Jazz Age, where Frank Lloyd Wright stayed while building the Guggenheim Museum, where the Beatles bivouacked when they invaded America, and where Macaulay Culkin stayed after spending all that time home alone. It's where Liza Minnelli grew up and Eloise acted up. Ward Morehouse III, who himself did some growing up at the hotel, has collected all the Plaza's gems, looked into all the nooks and crannies. In his newly revised and updated edition, Morehouse recounts the hotel's recent $450 million transformation, with its 181 luxury condominium residences, 282 guest rooms and suites, and landmark public spaces, such as the Oak Room and Oak Bar. He has created a special and personal account of the only storybook castle in America where anyone who desires to can stay overnight.
