Serendipity 3. We attempted to use the restroom in the Waldorf but were dropped off in the back of the hotel and didn't feel like walking around the front of the building. I wanted my daughter to see the grandeur of the historic hotel. We waited for about 20 minutes which didn't seem long after using the restroom which is super tiny, lacks a purse hook, and has extremely hot water. While we were waiting for our food, who walks in? Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa who were taping an episode of their reality show. They were not disruptive at all so I was pleased that our dining experience was not affected at all. However, I would have loved to have seen her (plastic surgery) up close.
Serendipity is most known for their frozen hot chocolate and now that I think about it, Gail King or was it Oprah, did a snippet on their popular beverage. Either way, I did notice alot of people ordering this sweet beverage, however I chose not too. Our meal was enough AND I just had a delicious, calorie rich hot chocolate from my local coffee shop, Sip This, the day before. This restaurant didn't have chicken fingers so I question if this place is kid-friendly.
Dylan's Candy Bar just around the corner where my daughter nearly lost her mind after eying all of the delicious treats. This place was amazing!!!
Afterwards, we caught a cab and headed back to Penn Station to catch a train back to Long Island. As we slowly made our way to Penn, we drove by the Plaza Hotel and noticed a huge Eloise banner. How excited! I now recall an old friend sharing with me that Eloise was at The Plaza Hotel. I think I know what our next kiddie in the city event will include.

This was the room we first entered that led directly to our bedroom. Yes, this was all ours.
We arrived at about 10:30 p.m. and popped a bottle of wine we brought from home. The atmosphere was very relaxing and totally worth every penny spent. No smoke and mirrors here. The bathroom you see in this photo is exactly what you see in the room. There is also a shower stall. The water is pretty hard and stings a bit when it hits you.
In addition to the amenities being close to top notch, I can't forget the safety pin I saw in the comforter and the tiny TV, the breakfast was phenomenal.

Fresh Fruit (kiwi, pears, strawberries, blue berries and vanilla yogurt)
