Disappointing.........it is all coming down so no-one cares. Our suite was so disappointing, wallpaper peeling from the walls, interior doors with no lock mechanism, stained carpet. Breakfast was a delight. Staff were pretty hopeless......all moving on. They still charged the big bucks, but the hotel rooms have all been let deteriorate. The hotel foyer and restaurants were still grand. The...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 February 2017 via mobile

I love hotels with character, even if this means they sometimes have a faded charm or are a little worn at the edges. Far better than soulless glass monoliths. The Waldorf Astoria in New York is closing next week for refurbishment and will reopen as a smaller hotel. I hope they keep the Art Deco style and merely modernise. My...

It was an amazing stay in Waldorf Astoria Hotel. An amazing historical hotel with high ceilings, pieces of Art, astonishing ancient clock in the middle of the reception area. We were able to see foreign visitors entering the hotel lobby only to have photos. Everybody was amazed by this beautiful old hotel. I knew that it is under renovation now....

Visited in May 2016 and except for the lovely lobby we were disappointed with the rooms. They were aged and viably in need of a renovation. The hotel's greatest asset is its location. You are pretty much in the heart of NY and only a few minutes from great shops and attractions. We were told that plans are underway for...

We walked to central park and time square from this hotel so it was fairly central. The room we were allocated was fairly large however there were only two double beds to accommodate a family of four and my daughter was 17 and my son was 15 so weren't keen on sharing a bed! The hotel were very accommodating and...

The hotel allowed smoking...so we had to switch rooms bc we smelled smoke. But after that, a great stay! Beautifully decorated and great service. Definitely would stay again. Pretty good location also.

Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York is undoubtedly an iconic hotel. Conveniently located. Plush rooms. Good housekeeping. Room service is with limited spread. Breakfast has a good variety. Staff is courteous but a bit tardy.

It might be a little tired but then aren't most classics? It felt like an honour to stay here, surrounded by history which you can feel as you walk around the opulent lobby. The rooms are huge by NY standards and have that old-world charm. Putting aside the various things lacking that you would find in a modern hotel, this...

My family and I stayed here for six nights the week before Christmas 2016. This is a hotel I'd always wanted to stay at and it certainly didn't disappoint! The decor is simply stunning and the staff were very attentive, I hope that the re-fit is sympathetic to its features as we'd love to stay here again.

Took the family to New York last year and were unfortunate to have chosen this hotel. The whole place needs a major refit. The hotel claims the rooms have A/C. When I called down to ask for someone to come up and check my A/C as the room was too hot I was told to open a window.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
