For some, a stay at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York is almost as fundamental to an authentic Big Apple vacation as seeing the Statue of Liberty or sipping a Manhattan cocktail. Opened in 1931, this Art Deco building maintains an enviable reputation as one of the finest hotels in the world, with luxurious fixtures and fittings, individually designed rooms and king-sized marble bathrooms. The Waldorf Astoria also holds its own when it comes to fine dining - two very well-known dishes, the popular Waldorf salad as well as Eggs Benedict, were invented in the Waldorf's kitchen. Weary travelers can book a treatment at the Guerlain Spa - imbibing in the Pure & Radiant Back Treatment or the Scalp Massage and Reflexology sessions - while shoppers are amply catered for at the boutiques surrounding the lobby.

Neighborhood

The Waldorf Astoria New York was originally based at the site of the Empire State Building, but now resides at 301 Park Avenue, parallel to the well-known streets of Madison Avenue and Lexington Avenue. Home to a pleasing array of greenery and floral displays, the avenue is also handy for getting around attractions in the rest of Manhattan, from the huge oasis of Central Park to lively Times Square, as well as connecting visitors with upscale neighborhoods like Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side.

Hints and tips
Learn more about the varied history of the Waldorf during their hotel tours on Thursdays and Saturdays. If you have kids, there's also a magic show to catch every Friday and Saturday night.

Great Business Stay - Expensive Internet

No one needs me to tell them that the Waldorf is a top-notch hotel and located in a fabulous location. I purchased a regular room and found myself in a very spacious room that was very well-appointed. It was everything you would expect from a 4-star hotel. I was just there for a single night and for business, so I can't speak much to the hotel's amenities or particulars. I will say that the hotel's internet services are very expensive. I'm not sure that there is a good justification for charging a traveler $20 a day for "basic internet" (which is so slow that I was able to completely unpack before it loaded the NYT website) or $30 a day "premium internet" (which had the speed I would have expected from the basic tier - still very slow).

Get what you pay for

This was our first stay in New York and was well pleased with the staff and accommodations at the Waldorf Astoria. We stayed in a luxury suite in the 27th floor. The rooms were clean and the pillows were comfortable, but the mattress wad really soft and felt wore out. For the money it was worth the stay, but next visit I would pay a little more for a more comfortable bed.

Awesome trip during holidays!

Went to Aladdin. Excellent musical. Traveled all over city. Easy to get our rental car in and out of the hotel every day. Great staff. No better location.

Overall the experience was very very good. The only issue was that it was very hard to get the hot water to work in the shower. Room 1452. Needs a new faucet. Thx

Past its heyday

I wanted so much to love my stay. The hotel is pricey for what you get: dated rooms, lack of luxury. The hotel seems to be riding on its name, not quality. When I politely informed the front desk that the hotel did not meet my expectations, I was told, "it takes time to renovate" the rooms. I understand that, but customers should not be paying high end prices for a hotel that feels very much like a nice Howard Johnson's.
