The Plaza, closing at the end of April to go condo, has started its decline into hotel hell. Reports Lloyd Grove, "Guests are suffering such indignities as filthy rooms, bathrooms and hallways; empty minibars; paper napkins and mismatched plates at the ritzy Palm Court, and even a shortage of basic utensils like teaspoons." The kicker: members of the International Olympics Committee are scheduled to stay at the Plaza later this month. NY2012, it's been fun to know you.
