Pack Your Bags: The Plaza Hotel Opens Eloise Suitesandymaple
A night at the Plaza Hotel would be a treat for any just about any little girl. But if you’ve got a pink-loving princess who also happens to be a fan of Kay Thompson’s classic story about a spunky little girl who lives on the “tippy top floor” of that hotel, why not upgrade to the Eloise Suite?
In the books, Thompson and illustrator Hilary Knight created a larger-than-life character in Eloise. And in New York City’s Plaza Hotel, designer Betsey Johnson brought her world to life in vivid shades of pink. Lots of pink.
The bed is covered in a pink “Betseyville Rose” print and the walls feature pink striped paper. Eloise portraits adorn the walls and a sparkly pink chandelier hangs from the ceiling. In the closet, little guests will find pink bathrobes which they can take home with them. And with pink neon lights spelling out Eloise’s name, it seems the only things not pink in this room are the zebra-striped floors and Weenie and Skipperdee, plush recreations of Eloise’s pet dog and turtle.
Ready to pack your bags and head to the Big Apple? You might want to check your bank account first. The suite goes for $995 a night, which includes a $100 gift card for the hotel’s Eloise shop. And if mom and dad want to keep an eye on things, they can stay in the adjoining parent’s suite for a total of $2,045 for both rooms per night.
