Waldorf Astoria Hotel, New York

Location

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.

Rooms

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.

Highlights

With the Waldorf practically dripping with luxury, you can't miss out on a spa treatment at the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Get the ultimate in spa experiences with Guerlain Spa treatments. Each treatment is created especially for the individual, meaning you'll be getting something special that nobody else ever has before. If you're getting ready for a special night out, let the experienced staff give you the perfect make-up job for a look you'll never forget.

Fees
  • This is a 100% non-smoking property.

Historic Hotel But Outdated

The Waldorf is an historic hotel, but is in need of updating. The service was great in the hotel and the restaurant, but the rooms need to be completely renovated. The heat in the room didn't work and the carpet is old. No free wifi in the room.

Awesome Husband and Wife Trip

Was my first time ever in New York, and could not have stayed at any better hotel. The staff were informative, and very helpful with anything myself or husband needed. The view on the other hand was not, so great , but the over all experience being in the Waldorf Astoria made up for it 100.

Family trip

It was a once in a life time experience to be at the Waldorf Astoria. The room was comfortable,clean and the bed comfy and luxurious. I had a rough first check in as I needed a major credit card. The room was prepaid so I dint even think of it. My card was charged so I was pretty distressed. But Greg was helpful, kept in touch til I got that back. He added to my credit so we were able to order breakfast. Wonderful treat. Thanks Greg. We felt safe walking around, great area to be in. For this single mom, it was a great experience. Thank you Waldorf for a great stay.

Did not live up to my high expectations.

The hotel was nice but huge. The walk to your room is can be a long haul. The staff is professional and friendly. The room is spotless. I had hoped to find a coffee maker and complimentary bottled water, but that did not happen. I had ordered the NYTimes, but it did not show up. These were small negatives, though. I had arranged a family dinner at the expensive Bull and Bear Restaurant and found the food very disappointing. The wait staff was excellent and the environment were pleasant..

Very nice but

The hotel is very pretty and lobby is great. However, the rooms were a bit dated and we had some technical difficulties with TV.

Restaurant

Staff was superb. My wife needed wheelchair they provided great service. What is not included is about restaurant. Restaurant receptionist was terrible. She had no consideration for wife' s fragility. My wife was on last stage of her life due cancer. She died 4 days later after we came home. But she refused to go to restaurant. We ordered room service which was nice.
