Fantastic hotel.

We stayed at the Waldorf for 4 nights in April. We chose this hotel because of its reputation, We were flying from London so wanted to make sure we stayed at a top hotel. We were not disappointed! The staff were very helpful, the room was very clean and we felt well looked after during our stay. No tea making facilities in the room but we spoke to reception and they brought a kettle up to our room right away. It is in a great central location and most of the famous sights are in walking distance. We were well looked after during our stay and would definitely return again one day.

Booked the Waldorf as part of a package for birthday treats. We had a really lovely time, the hotel was beautiful and met all our needs perfectly, near to sights, very comfortable and just lovely. We couldn't have asked for better. All staff we came into contact with were very helpful. A great visit would definitely recommend this hotel.

Family trip

I booked two bedrooms for my wife and I and my brother. Both bedrooms were clean tidy and comfortable. I found the staff to be very professional and efficient when I needed their assistance. The Hotel is in a perfect location to take in the sites of New York. I have no hesitation in booking the Waldorf Astoria again when I visit New York next time.

Good location

Hotel is full of old somewhat faded tradition. Plenty of staff but often unclear how to access them- hidden rules about standing in lines that meant I had to suddenly go back down a queue I hadnts been aware of. All food and drinks outrageously priced but we were happy to go elsewhere. Room was comfortable ( but had to ask for a coffee machine) although windows were very draughty and blinds did not close. Staff very kind and let us use spa changing facilities when we were soaked to the skin prior to leaving for return home. Overall I'm pleased I've stayed here as it is a piece of tradition.

Trip to New York

The Waldorf Astoria is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. It is in walking distance to many fabulous restaurants and places of entertainment. On the downside, because it is an old hotel there were technical issues with the electricity power in the guest rooms. I paid for a superior suite but it did not have a sofa or tea/coffee making facilities. I would have expected a kettle in the room and the usual complimentary tea/coffee etc. On the up side, the staff were very attentive and any problems were sorted out immediately.

Great location

We upgraded to a superior room, however the room was fairly ordinary. We were at the back of the hotel so it was nice and quiet, however there was no view as it looked onto the other parts of the hotel plus there was no natural daylight so it was fairly dim with only 3 lights. Disappointed as there was no coffee making facilities or a fridge in the room. Our main corridor to the room was being decorated on 2 days so there was step ladders and decorators to negotiate. One of the night there was no electricity or hot water during the night as they were testing the system so we were given small torches to use. There was no book in our room to explain what the hotel had to offer regarding facilities you could download an app however at $25 dollars a night for wifi that was a bit expensive, however it was free to use in the lobby. The interior of the hotel is stunning and it's a great location to stay

Lovely Grand Communal Areas but Room bit tired

The reception and communal areas are opulent and impressive, however the same cannot be said for the deluxe twin rooms on the tenth floor! The room itself initially looked lovely but rather small. The bathroom showed signs of damp and there was mould growing on the doorframe above the door. Chips in the sink and a tired looking bathroom suite. There was only one available plug point which looked lose. Every morning and most afternoons when we came out of our bedroom there was a strong damp smell in the corridoor. Which was hideous. The problem is there is not adequate ventilation in the bathrooms or a pipe burst somewhere and hasn't been fixed properly. I know it is an old hotel but we have older buildings here that are maintained properly. The food was nice but ridiculously expensive. For what they charge they need to make the bedrooms reflect the high charges and mat h the standard of the communal areas. The staff were lovely especially our concierge.

Wife's wounderful birthday

The hotel was everything we hoped it would be. The staff were 1st class in every aspect and went out of their way to help with anything we needed. Will be returning again soon but may travel via different airline.
