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.

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.

Business trip

This is amongst the worst property I have ever encountered (over 100 stays per year at multiple chains). The water from the taps looked like coconut water (took pictures) you could not see through a glass of water. Mold in the bathroom, peeling wall paper, rusted air vents just to begin. I wish I would have stayed elsewhere - at least I would be able to brush my teeth and drink the water. The staff was great and the property could be amazing with significant rehabilitation.
