    Designed by Lloyd Morgan, the Art Deco building was completed in 1931 as a reincarnation of the original hotel erected by the Astor family in the 1890’s. It was designated a City landmark in 1993.

    I always wanted to stay in this hotel and I don't regret spending the money. If you want the best price, book the room online few hours before your arrival as I did.

    If you want to step back in time and experience faded glory, it's a great hotel. The lobby is amazing, all staff is still handling the old manners of hospitality, but the rooms are definitely outdated

    You have to love The Waldorf=Astoria for its style. Not that it is so fancy or so expensive (which it is), but it is relaxed, comfortable, charming and with all its facilities a home away from home.

    The best "public" bathrooms in the city are rumored to exist in the lobby of this Art Deco landmark. There a lounge area with chairs and couches, but each stall contains a sink and mirror. Read more

    One of the industry leaders since its opening, the Astoria is known for excellence in hospitality. Borne of an Astor family feud, the Astoria was the brainchild of WIlliam W. Astor and John J. Astor.

    From the minute I walked in to the Waldorf Astoria I knew there was something special about it. With state of the arc luxury, the Waldorf Astoria is most definitely worth every single penny.

    The Waldorf Burger is the best from the room service menu. If you like garlic then the angel hair pasta. Oh and the fries are great too! Enjoy!

    Simply amazing. The staff is wonderful, the Waldorf salad is delicious and the rooms are beautiful too. If you can't afford to stay the night, try the lobby bathrooms and admire the worlds fair clock!

    This is a great hotel. Everything is A+. Only complaint is there is always a long line for check in. One bit of advice...skip Oscars for breakfast. Buffett is not worth $50, go down to 2nd ave.

    The ladies's room the lobby is the best public restroom I've seen in years. Suites and meeting rooms are amazing. You feel the early 20th Century glamour. Beware connectivity sucks.

    If you ask nicely, you can order a delicious French onion soup while in the peacock lounge from the bull & bear restaurant and continue enjoying the lobby people watching.

    Sad to see it closed. It was one of NYC's historic landmarks. You don't need a star map at the Waldorf. If you've ever been here then you know that so many celebrities have passed thru this place. 🍷

    Walk in and take a self-guided tour of the magnificent lobby. And this is a great place to relax for a moment or use the public bathroom.

    From '64 to '87, Frank and Barbara lived in a suite in the Waldorf Towers paying $1 million per year. There's a rumor they had monogrammed shower doors -- which disappeared during a renovation.

    This very well may have been the home to the swankiest company holiday party I've ever been to. Amazing decor and great service and food options.

    Feeling peckish? The wildly popular 'Waldorf Salad' was invented by Waldorf Astoria maitre d' Oscar Tschirky in 1893. The apple, celery and walnut salad can still be found worldwide today.

    The lobby clock is from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Intricate and beautiful. If you can, also make your way to the Grand Ballroom and admire the view from the top balcony.

    The structure is beautiful but service is slow and full of rules. If you're only sleeping at the hotel, it is ok but if you need more of their service you may be disappointed.

    Service is always consistent, always excellent. Secret is it's still a Hilton property, so score a deal (or an upgrade) with Hilton rewards points.
