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.

Disappointed

The WA did not live up to its reputation. While overall stay was fine, the hotel seemed in need of some renovation. Room had peeling wallpaper, runs in carpet and generally shabby appearance. Lobby also seemed a little worn. Did not live up to expectations.

Family Trip

We loved the hotel and the fact that we were close to many things. We walked to Central Park, all over Madison and Fifth Avenue, and to the theaters. We took a cab just to go to the airport. The people at the hotel were extremely helpful and nice. Their recommendations were right on. I would stay there again.

In the center of Manhattan

The lobby and restaurant area are exquisite. The room is nice, but does not have the same grandeur. There is not complementary tea/coffee service in the room. Location however is excellent. Make sure you do not sleep next to the elevator as we did, bring some extra earplugs, just in case.

Great Night in NY

The Waldorf was terrific. We had a great anniversary celebration in NY. Check-in took a bit of time and the breakfast at Oscar's was not great. But everything else was. Staff was friendly and the location can't be beat.

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..
