Breakaway - Eloise and The Plaza Suite in New York

New York is the city that never sleeps, and if I’m checked into the Eloise Suite at The Plaza, in New York, I am not sure if I can get much shut-eye as well! But it’s good fun, isn’t it? And surely every girl, young and not so young, would lurve a night or two in this over-the-top haven of pink!
Designed by equally excessive Betsy Johnson, this suite is all about Eloise, the fictional character from children’s book series, who lives with her Nanny, pet pug Weenie and turtle Skipperdee at The Plaza and has free run of the place.
Set on the 18th floor, the Eloise Suite is all pink extravagance – with a signature Plaza chandelier fitted with pink bulbs, candy striped walls, black and white zebra-print carpet, king-size bed with bedspread covered with scenes from the books, a padded pink headboard sparkles with “trinkles” and comfy chairs upholstered in Johnson’s signature rosebud prints. Guests here get a disposable Eloise camera, Eloise DVDs and books, a tea set and Eloise and Weenie dolls, Eloise robes and towels complete with appliqués of Weenie and Skipperdee.

If that’s not enough, there’s Eloise shopping to do at the massive 2,100-square-foot Eloise shop down at the concourse level. Made out like a playhouse, you can relax in the Living Room, try out clothes in the Fashion Room or watch Eloise movie clips in the Library Room. Then if you’re feeling peckish, take tea at the shop’s Tea Room or, if you’re a resident in the city, organize parties there too.

"'I absolutely loooove The Plaza!' as Eloise would say,” says Betsey Johnson. “Now I hope she says, 'I absolutely loooove my new room decorated by Betsey Johnson! She's so pink, so fun...neon, and stripes, and flowers, and yipes!!! ...petticoats, princess crowns, and even pink chandeliers! Ahhhh...absolutely home-sweet-home.
To help you with your Eloise experience, the hotel has a dedicated ‘Eloise Ambassador’ to assist in booking a stay in the Eloise Suite. (Contact her at Adjoining the Eloise suite is the Edwardian Suite for the grown ups and comes with a comforting bottle of Champers and truffles to soothe you from all the pink!
