The Waldorf Astoria has been a New York icon for over a century. Relocated to make way for the building of the Empire State Building, since 1931 the Waldorf Astoria has resided at 301 Park Avenue in one of the city's best-known Art Deco buildings. With fabulous service, legendary cuisine and a full array of luxury comforts, the Waldorf Astoria promises an unforgettable stay in the Big Apple.
About the hotel
Not far from Grand Central Station in busy Midtown Manhattan, the Waldorf Astoria is easy to reach from the airport or within the city, either by public transport, car, or the hotel's car and limousine service. The Waldorf Astoria caters to visitors' every need with 24-hour room service, two 24-hour fitness centers, a spa offering massages and facials, and an in-house hair salon. It is also a great venue for events, with state-of-the-art business facilities, an elegant ballroom and world-famous restaurants. Alongside hearty steaks and contemporary fare, these restaurants created Red Velvet Cake and their signature Waldorf salad.
Highlights and attractions
Within walking distance to Times Square, the Rockefeller Center and the buzz of Broadway, the Waldorf Astoria is also conveniently located near the Museum of Modern Art, one of the country's most renowned contemporary art museums. Those looking for a little quiet in the bustle of the city can enjoy a stroll in Central Park.
Reception area was beautiful.
Rooms are very dated and I had the unfortunate experience of staying beside a suite and the the people staying it in liked to party in it until 5.30am. Kitchen was adjoined to my room and heard every footstep and every word. Reception offer me to move rooms at 5.30am rather than asking the guests to have some respect for others. Never again.
The name Waldorf Astoria
There is no intimacy .. too big! A bit cold ..
Overcharged for a bottle of water
A bit impersonal, had to get a ticket to get a bellhop to take bags to room - not clear where to get ticket from so didnt do this. Paying this much a bell hop should be at the door when you arrive to take your bas up the large staircase. No computers for internet - needed own laptop to use internet. Location not nearly like I thought - had to walk quite a few blocks to get to central part,times square, etc. Close to Fifth Ave shops which was good.
A very poor experience
The rooms were all 1970's needs a major refurbishment
The hotel staff were very friendly, easy to approach and very helpful. Amazing hotel.
The staff were very helpful
The room was comfortable but not luxurious.
Staff were all very friendly the hotel interior was outstanding with a style and appearance from a different era.
Rooms a bit small but understand in NYC you don't get a lot for your money.
Arranged the visit for the 60th birthday of my sister and were both very pleased to receive a bottle of wine in the room- a very kind gesture ,thankyou! Staff always very courteous and helpful.
Would be nice to have tea making facilities in room, otherwise can't think of anything more!
The Waldorf is a fabulous hotel. We loved everything about this hotel. The decor was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. I cant praise this hotel and the staff enough.
location, comfort, architecture, and the history!
pitiful tv reception, no free internet access from room
