About Millennium UN Plaza Hotel
A glossy international hotel with superb views, the Millennium UN Plaza is right across the street from United Nations Headquarters, and only a few minutes’ walk from Grand Central Terminal and the heart of Midtown Manhattan. The UN is located in the far East Side neighborhood of Turtle Bay, which runs from 42nd Street north into the low 50s – its borders are Grand Central to the west and the East River. A mix of large apartment buildings, sedate townhouses and soaring office towers, Turtle Bay is home to many affluent, longtime Manhattan residents, and it projects an air of high-level multinational business. Tudor City and Beekman Place have ornate apartment buildings on quiet thoroughfares that perch high above the rest of the city, and UN embassies and missions can be found on virtually every side street.
Turtle Bay is a little more low-key than Midtown, and a good choice for visitors who want to be in the heart of Manhattan without being overwhelmed by the crowds and the expense. Stores on the ground floors of office towers and mixed-use apartment buildings guarantee that visitors are never too far away from groceries, conveniences, medicine or a quick haircut. Restaurants and bars cater to local professionals, from Smith & Wollensky's steaks to PJ Clarke's beers at happy hour. To get north and south, residents rely on the 4, 5 and 6 trains on Lexington and the express buses that roar uptown and down along First and Second Avenues. A few blocks north is Bloomingdale's; a few blocks west are Fifth Avenue, the Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral.
The Millennium UN Plaza has 438 rooms and suites. (A new luxury tower with another 154 rooms will open in the fall of 2012.) The rooms begin on the 28th floor – the first 26 floors house UN offices – the views are often remarkable. Amenities include a fitness center and pool on the 27th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular views along First Avenue and across the East River; a multilingual staff; an indoor tennis court; spa services and in-room massages; a private concierge club offering breakfasts, all-day refreshments, evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and personalized service; and over 7,500 square feet of meeting space. The hotel’s UN location is ideal for international visitors. Plus, it is only three blocks from Grand Central Terminal, and a quick walk to Midtown Manhattan and the theater district.
