    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.

    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

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 The lobby is amazing, all staff is still handling the old manners of hospitality, but the rooms are definitely outdated

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. 🍷
