Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, an architect associated with luxury hotels and apartment buildings of the Gilded Age, designed the Plaza Hotel in the style of French Renaissance châteaux. His design featured a two-story ballroom and a tearoom with a Tiffany glass-domed ceiling. Upon it’s opening, New York newspapers heralded it as the “greatest hotel in the world.” New York City’s Landmark Commission awarded the structure landmark status in 1969.
