Secrets Of The Plaza Hotel

When I was in high-tech, I visited New York City once or twice a year to attend conferences. I stayed at the Plaza Hotel on a couple occasions. The rooms were pretty nice, but not what I would call outstanding. Of course, I stayed in the least expensive rooms to stay within travel budget guidelines.

New York’s legendary Plaza Hotel has a colorful past.Since opening in 1907, it has hosted some of the world’s most famous guests and appeared in more than 50 films. 

In honor of its history, The Plaza recently put together an infographic highlighting everything from its list of notorious guests to the bizarre requests its concierge has seen.

Here are some of the most fascinating moments in The Plaza’s history, including that time a guest ordered two dozen live tarantulas for a special dinner.
