Stay at the Most Celebrated Address in New York, New York for Four Days & Three Nights at The Plaza for Two, Including a Private Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art ( (Land Only)

A century ago The Plaza established its distinction as the paragon of luxury, replete with its trademark passion and uncompromising service, which have made the hotel a legend. The Plaza is the premier New York City hotel, and is New York?s most celebrated address. Carve out a few hours amidst the bustle of this fast-paced city for a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where you'll get to skip the line and explore the most famous pieces among the roughly two million works, and 5,000 years, of art spanning all cultures and time periods.

Timeless. Authentic. Unforgettable. From the sumptuous decor to the impeccable white glove service, The Plaza is an extraordinary hotel that will offer its guests every indulgence. Amenities include a world-class retail collection featuring exclusive boutiques and purveyors of fine food, as well as the spa, fitness center and salon. The Palm Court continues to offer its timeless afternoon tea, a quintessential New York experience.

The Plaza was built by the Rockefeller family in 1907, and its location on Fifth Avenue and Central Park could not be more magnificent. This massive complex is seen as an international symbol of modernist architectural style and contains many intriguing Art-Deco style architectural and artistic designs, and is known as one of the most elegant hotels in the world.

Attracting nearly as many visitors as other leading galleries like the Louvre or the British Museum, New York?s Metropolitan Museum of Art houses an incomparable collection of art and artifacts covering everything from Ancient Egypt to modern art. Pass through the Medieval Europe Gallery on your way to the Studiolo from the Ducal Palace. Explore armory form the Middle Ages, including pieces worn by Henry VIII. The American wing hosts the staircase from the Chicago Stock Exchange as well as the famed portrait of Washington crossing the Delaware. A host of European painters including Picasso, Van Gogh and Vermeer await you as you learn about their troubled yet exciting lives. Along the way, your guide will explain how this iconic American museum differs from its older European counterparts, especially since it began before the United States was even 100 years old! Other usual highlights of the tour Include: Henry VIII armor, Tiffany Autumn landscape, Chicago Stock Exchange Stairs, Madame X, Pop culture then and now, Hudson River School, Washington Crossing the Delaware, Jan Vermeer, Madonna with Child, Picasso, Seurat, Van Gogh, and so much more!
