The Palm Court at the Plaza Hotel

3 of 12

On the Show: Betty (clad in a new fur coat) and Don celebrate Valentine’s
Day in a palm-filled hotel dining room at the (now defunct) Savoy Hotel. After running into
Betty’s old college friend turned “working girl,” the Drapers retire to a
romantic evening in one of the hotel’s lavish suites. (Season 2)

In Reality: An ideal stand-in, the luminous dining room at the palace-like (and
newly renovated) Plaza Hotel is where Eloises-in-the-making take afternoon tea and couples dine for
special occasions.

Best If You’re: Using money to mend marital woes. It wouldn’t hurt
to walk down the street to Saks Fifth Avenue for a mink for the missus.
