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.

Neighborhood

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.

Hints and tips
Learn more about the varied history of the Waldorf during their hotel tours on Thursdays and Saturdays. If you have kids, there's also a magic show to catch every Friday and Saturday night.

Good coffee shops nearby for breakfast

My mom ordered room service for breakfast the first day. While the croissants and coffee were exceptional, I had a heart attack at the $100 cost. There are several coffee shops on Lexington that would do the trick for a fifth the cost...but they do not deliver while you are still in your robe. ;) The hotel room was so quiet I would have thought we were the only people there if the lobby wasn't so hopping.

Coffee shops and food carts abound on Lexington, and even on Park. Then there is the Grand Central Market too.

Love the Waldorf!

I loved the Waldorf from the minute we arrived to the minute we left! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our rooms were restocked and cleaned daily. The beds and pillows were very comfortable! I thought I was at home!! The rooms were quiet and the view up Park Avenue was outstanding. The location was perfect for going both north and south on foot or by cab.

Excellent stay with waldorf. They always provide excellent service. The location is unbeatable and the historic nature of the hotel make it a place to visit as well as stay.

Disappointed

Staying at the Waldorf was a let down. For the price and reputation, I was expecting a lot more; they continually tried to sale you other items even the internet. The rooms were huge and clean, but were outdated. The check in took a long time and I noticed an even longer line the next afternoon. They also closed off the entrance to the hotel because of a function on Saturday night; forcing guests to go out the back of the hotel or below the main floor. There was nothing especially wrong, but nothing special.

You can find a better place

The staff was not good. Over priced. Many better places to stay in New York. The only good thing about the hotel is the location. I thought that the hotel would have that old New York charm. The name was what sold me. I lived in Westchester County for 30 years and spent many nights in the city. This place is just a Hilton with no class. I give it two stars.

Little Old.

Hotel is nice. Both doors, bathroom and room door need to be changed. Also, one of the black out curtains in the room was broken. No bottle of wáter in the room.
