It was very interesting to learn what typically (or unexpectedly) goes on behind the scenes at this historic hotel. I always loved going to the Palm Court. The book is still informative although rather dated and it made me curious to see who took over ownership after Donald Trump bought it and his (ex) wife Ivanka was made president. I no longer live easily accessible to NYC so haven't been there in a few years. However, I hope to return and when I do, I'll hope to have tea or champagne at the Palm Court again. I understand the Oak Room is now closed but I do hope the Palm Court will continue to furnish lovely music and nostalgic, elegant surroundings.
Everyone has heard of the Plaza. but few know anything about the running of a luxury hotel. The book is filled with interesting facts, not just about the hotel itself, but the people who have stayed there through the years. It's a very quick read and an enjoyable one.
An entertaining, interesting read that takes you to a place few of us ever get to go. By that, I don't mean the Plaza, but the inside workings of a grand hotel. Enjoyed it immensely!
The book literally follows the employees and guests through a week at the Plaza. Things may have changed by now since the book is not current, but it was very interesting.
Enjoyed this book very much. Gave a very good glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes of a big name hotel.
This is an interesting premise for a book, and the author clearly did his research. Unfortunately, the end result is rather slow-going. I couldn't make it through!
I love books about the hospitality industry and specific hotels. This book is a 'behind the scenes' gift!
Went on too long.
