Forget about Carrie and her pals. One of our favorite fictional NYC characters is Eloise. The Plaza provides plenty of family-friendly options to take in the Eloise experience.
How to experience Eloise at the Plaza? Well, you could stay in the Eloise Suite--a one-of-a-kind collaboration with Betsey Johnson. The fancy two-room, Eloise Suite is a pricey mix of luxury and whimsy. Located on the 18th floor this room is rendered in an Eloise-approved palette of pink and black. The suite is also tricked out with Eloise DVDs and books, a tea set and Eloise and Weenie dolls, Eloise robes and towels. Are you sitting down? Rates for the Eloise Suite start at $995/night.
For a less expensive visit with tots, why not try a trip to the Eloise shop and a visit to the Eloise Shop to pick up a copy of this classic book.
