For a discounted $26 million, you can own a piece of the storied Plaza Hotel. In fact, you can sleep in the very same apartment once occupied by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Plaza, New York’s iconic hotel and residence, has stood tall in the corner of Central Park South since 1906. Its first residents were the Vanderbilts, and the illustrious history only unfolded from there: other owners have included members of the Astor family, fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger, and billionaire American Idol mastermind Simon Fuller. And let’s not forget Eloise, the spritely fictional heroine of Kay Thompson’s popular children’s books.

This four-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot Corner Unit With Central Park And Fifth Avenue views is now up for $26 million, after receiving a $13.5 million price drop from a previous listing in March.

It’s listed with Suzan Kremer of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Take a first look inside the stately apartment, below.
