For the hotel's first official Christmas Tree of the holiday season, the Plaza has partnered with cartwheeling designer Betsey Johnson, who created a playful tree inspired by Eloise, the little girl who lived in the Plaza in the famous book.
Tonight, the hotel will unveil the tree as part of a special "Tree Lighting Tee" in the Palm Court at 5 p.m., where the designer herself will be on hand to fete her creation.
In addition to creating a special tree for the Plaza, the designer has also curated a holiday pop-up in the hotel, which has been open since November 14.
The tree lighting is open to the public, but visitors need to call ahead for reservations: 212-546-5300.
