The Plaza has unveiled the signature Tower Suite for young knights in training. With the introduction of this new and distinct Plaza experience, Eloise will have new friends at The Plaza – including a Family Ambassador, who will be dedicated to curating custom experiences for families staying at the hotel.
The Plaza henceforth bequeaths thine noblest sons “Knights of The Plaza.” Young boys who have demonstrated bravery and prowess on the battlefield are invited to spend the night in The Plaza's one of a kind Tower Suite, accepting reservations as of Friday, June 22, 2012. The suite features a round bed within a unique circle-shaped bedroom overlooking 5th Avenue. The 23-foot exposed brick cathedral ceiling exemplifies medieval architecture, giving the bedroom the authentic feeling of spending the night in a real life siege tower. The living room features The Plaza's very own coat of arms, as well as medieval art that bring the time period to life.
The life of a young knight is not an easy one – bound to defend his lord and liege and hold himself to the highest standards of combat, knowledge in writing and leadership. Families who want to treat their young royals to a night of medieval make-believe, history and fun, look no further than The Plaza's Tower Suite. Young guests staying in the suite will be given The Plaza's royal treatment, including hotel-wide recognition that his lordship or her ladyship is present. Their authority will be validated by a pin worn to indicate that the hotel is now under the medieval hero's protection. In addition, children will receive an eight inch metallic painted chocolate knight upon arrival, medieval-themed DVDs and books, and a closet full of knight dress-up outfits and toys from FAO Schwarz to complete the experience.
To remain under the guardianship of the brave knight, guests also have the option to book an adjoining Edwardian 5th Avenue suite and Deluxe King Room, converting the room to a three-bedroom suite, for a vacation the whole family will find memorable.

Eloise has always made The Plaza the New York hotel of choice for young girls, and now boys have signature experiences of their own with the launch of this new package. In addition, the hotel's Family Ambassador will assist with all reservations. The Family Ambassador can also assist guests with experiences around the city, from private shopping tours at FAO Schwarz and custom guides of the city's best playgrounds, to access to museum exhibits and activities that will bring out the carefree child in everyone.
“We're absolutely thrilled to welcome this new family component to The Plaza's existing first-class offerings. Our Eloise program has been a smashing success, and the addition of the “Knights of The Plaza” program will reaffirm our position as the top urban resort in New York City, especially for families” says Cynthia Scherer, Director of Sales and Marketing of The Plaza.
