    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.

    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.

    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 The lobby is amazing, all staff is still handling the old manners of hospitality, but the rooms are definitely outdated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.

    Beautiful hotel.Even more impressive in person ,everything here screams wealth and good taste! Check out the ladies restroom in the lobby,you won't believe how fabulous it is! Great spot for brunch!

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    Took several hours to get crib to room and when it arrived, it had no bumpers. Aside from that huge mishap, great staff, historic building. Stayed in towers- doorman was nicest person I've ever met.

    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 hotel was the first to ever offer room service and has a secret subway platform underneath the hotel where dignitaries could access the building without being seen. Read more

    The ladies rooms in the lobby are our fave! They used to be pink but it looks like they gave them a renovation. Still cute and each stall has its own sink, but we liked the pink better!

    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 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.

    What an amazing hotel to stay in while in NYC for the first time! Service was amazing and was very clean....and perfect location! The beds were the most comfortable ever!! I slept so good!

    Honestly a bit stuffy and the rooms had the oder of mildew. It's Iconic but way past its prime. Visit the lobby and maybe have a drink, but your much better served other places near by.

    Amazing hotel. Staff is friendly and so helpful. You can spend hours walking around getting lost :) oh and the cosmo's and bull and bear are really strong, but I recommend it!

    Doesn't live up to the rep. Absolutely no water pressure & only about 2 seconds of hot water. But, as the staff reminds you in their super friendly (but definitely snobby) way, "We're the Waldorf".

    Iconic NYC hotel, lovely art deco style has been preserved from the entrance to the Ladies Room. Needs a 21st century tech update as connectivity is severely lacking in the rooms.

    Do you know about the hotel's secret subway? Track 61 was built for President FDR, who was confined to a wheelchair. His automobile fit onto a train car that stopped at an elevator beneath the hotel.

    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.

    No point in asking for an early check in... They never have anything ready. Rubbish service. Don't know how to make guests feel special at all. Hospitality standards are as old as the decor.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    The aesthetic is classic. the service is impeccable. The luxuries that matter are there. And the modern upgrades are rolling out.

    Forget all the other luxuries/amenities/historical significance...the Waldorf has the fastest hotel internet on the planet. A router in your room! No, really.

    Not good as expected. Room very old, air conditioning very noisy. be aware that as a diamond member, you don't enjoy executive lounge access, nor continental breakfast.

    One of my favorite places to sleep on this planet. Classic interior, great staff and, well, quite expensive.

    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.

    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.
