Calling Daisys & Jays: This Great Gatsby Hotel Suite Is Off The Hook

1
Always Sometimes, we're positive we would have been so much better off growing up in the roaring '20s. There's just something so, well, sexy, about those flapper dresses and long nights spent drinking at speakeasies. Enter: our total obsession with all things Great Gatsby — and, turns out, we're not alone. (Duh.) In honor of Baz Luhrmann's much-anticipated blockbuster (out May 10!), the Plaza Hotel is pulling out all the stops and reviving the jazz age.
Starting this spring, the Fifth Avenue mainstay will offer guests a stay in the Fitzgerald Suite, a no-holds-barred room dedicated to the author. The art deco-designed space will include over-the-top furnishings from Restoration Hardware, images from the film, the author's complete collection of works, and coffee table books that will help you channel 1920s New York.
If that's not enough flapper feel for you, the hotel will also be transforming the iconic Champagne Bar and Todd English Food Hall into full Fitzgerald frenzy (think themed cocktails, a live jazz band, and more). Plus, you'll be able to browse an exclusive collection of props and costumes from the film while you lounge at the hotel. You may not be able to attend a raucous blowout in Oyster Bay, but the Plaza's festivities are totally Jay and Daisy-approved.
