no coffee

No coffee in the rooms. No coffee in the lobby. Coffee in the restaurant downstairs, Oscars, after 7am when they open for breakfast buffet, which was $44 per person. There are Starbucks in the neighborhood open after 7am, but if you are an early riser and want a basic cup of coffee in the morning, forget it. I thought it was irritating. Even in a good hotel, and I stay in plenty, I would like the ability to have an affordable light breakfast or lunch sandwich without having to travel to get it. And coffee seems so basic. The hotel was lovely. The staff friendly. But the amenities were awful. The room was very small, the tv was difficult to operate, no fan in the bathroom. Location is good if you're in town to shop on fifth avenue. Otherwise, this part of Park Avenue is so far from everything, you'll spend all your time trying to find decent food. I give it 3 stars at best. Sorry. If you want fun and food, go down and stay near the High Line. That part of town was awesome.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Save your money and do not go to the top of the Empire State Building The lines in and out take forever and are very claustrophobic. We thought it was a huge rip-off. Walk the High Line instead, its free and much more fun. And there is nothing gay anywhere near this hotel. We were literally the only gay couple there. I love high end hotels, so we thought we'd try it because of its grand old reputation, but I"ll not go back. You can't even get coffee. Its the most overrated hotel I've been in for 20 years.

Excellent accommodation

Great hotel experience. The only items that would have made it better would have been a coffee maker in the room and space in the fridge for water bottles.

Go to Babbo restaurant, if you are first traveler, take a one day tour (do not take the stroller to the tour), and then decide.

Waldorf Astoria Lives Up to Its Name

Beautiful hotel which presents itself as the historical icon which it is known. I was a bit concerned ahead of time due to some unflattering reviews I had previously read regarding the deterioration of many of the rooms. I was thrilled to be welcomed to a large room with amazing air conditioning (which any true New Yorker knows is hard to find). Yes, certain components were truly in disrepair. Examples include torn fabric on chair at desk, caulking coming off in bathtub, and window shades that looked like they had seen better days. But the beauty of this room was not missed on me, the old style elegance that had been maintained was phenomenal.

Use a town car service and not a taxi. Costs less.

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.

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.
