  • The Palm Court
    Surrounded on three sides by a promenade and separated from The Terrace Room by folding mirrored doors, The Palm Court boasts the most immediately gratifying part of The Plaza's restoration: the re-creation and installation of its stained-glass laylight (Conrad Hilton, who bought the hotel in 1943, had the original removed to install central air-conditioning). Botti Studio used a Hardenbergh sketch, black-and-white photos and shards of glass found during the cleanup to create the new design. The Palm Court, famous for its afternoon tea, serves breakfast, lunch and brunch.
