The "Astor Suite" at The Plaza Hotel is one of the most historic homes ever to become available in the United States. Located on the most coveted corner of the building - facing both Central Park and Fifth Avenue, this sprawling residence with 14-foot ceilings consists of a main residence with 4,284 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and is coupled with an 800-square foot guest suite across the hall, including another bedroom, bath room, sitting room, and private terrace.

Hardenbergh, some former resident's of the home include John Jacob Astor; the Duke and Duchess of Windsor; and John F. Kennedy.
