Living in a hotel often seems like a fantasy. The notion was even the subject for the children's book Eloise, which follows the story of a young girl who lived at the famous Plaza Hotel. Well, now that dream can become a reality as a rare unit at The Plaza Hotel Residences was just listed for $4,250,000 with Compass.

The one-bedroom apartment might not feature the hot pink details like Eloise's, but it does have iconic arched windows with highly-coveted Central Park Views. There's also a chef's kitchen and spa-like bathroom. Although, it's the five-star, hotel-style amenities that you get with the condo that really stands out.

Residents can feel like they're staying in a Plaza Hotel suite every night with access to a nanny, a separate entrance from the hotel, a limousine, in-room dining, and access to the the spa, salon, and gym. You also get personalized concierge provided through Luxury Attache and a private butler to tend to your every need.

In addition, the unit is available to be purchased fully-furnished with bespoke furnishings, art, and decor, including custom pieces such as custom-built banquette and art by IMG's in house art team, ArtLoft. The custom-designed decor theme is helmed by luxury design firm Interior Marketing Group, well known for their work with A-list clients such as Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Kayne West, Bethenny Frankel, Keith Richards, and more.

With the purchase, you also get to "own an irreplaceable part of history." The hotel was famously the home of some of the most noteworthy names in history including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Dior, Duke and Duchess of Windsor, John F. Kennedy, and Frank Lloyd Wright. It was also featured in movies including "Home Alone 2," "The Great Gatsby," and many more.

Unlike Eloise, it seems the lucky owner will have plenty of ways to keep busy and stay out of trouble. But you still have the option of scoping out the famed Palm Court or Champagne Bar in case you get curious.
