Editorial review:

This legendary spot has been frequented by every sitting American president since Herbert Hoover. It's fairy-tale like and has an incredible lobby. The staff is accommodating and treats you like royalty. The room quality varies greatly, though, from great to subpar. There are renovations underway along with a Guerlain spa being added.

    I like the bar in the hotel really relaxing, we ate at the Bull & Bear one night and the food is amazing

    I feel that the hotel requires a little refurb

    Comfortable Room, Ideally Located, Helpful and Courteous Staff, Ornate Decor

    Insufficient Staff at Reception in early Morning leading to line-ups

  • Older travelers

    The hotel has a classy, classic ambiance without seeming snobby or stuffy. All of the staff members were extremely efficient and accommodating.

    The hotel is showing its age just a little inside its rooms--carpet is a little old fashioned as are the bathrooms. But overall, these factors detracted very little from the hotel's elegance.

  • Family with children

    I liked the atmosphere & luxury of this hotel. We were welcomed & looked after but we felt that we were left alone to enjoy our stay as the staff were very discreet. My six year old niece thought the carpets in the lifts were fantastic!

  • Family with children

    The location was excellent and historically its a landmark

    I thought all our taxes were pre paid but on the morning we left we got a bill for 549 dollars.When I checked this term was in the fine print but in future I think it should be pointed out that this is the norm for hotels in the US

  • Family with children

    This is a hotel with classic hotel ambiance and comfort. It is elegant and has the american perfection for service with an international touch.

    The cocktail bar and the Peacock bar/restaurant had not the same style as the rest of the hotel. It was more old style than elegant.

    What can I say, The Waldorf Astoria lives up to its reputation for quality, a special hotel with grand surroundings. Fantastic staff and the room was wonderful.

  • Group of friends

    Everything was amazing. Rooms brilliant, helpful staff. We went to NY to get married, staying at the Waldorf made our wedding even better.

    Prices very expensive for drinks, breakfast etc but obviously the choice is yours as to whether you eat and drink at the hotel. It was a shame that the ballroom was always in use which meant you couldn't really go and have a good look around this part of the hotel.

  • Older travelers

    The beautiful environment and the friendly helpful service

    The room was nothing special compared with other reputable but not so expensive hotels;Entering on the Park Ave side of the hotel, we had to carry our bags up the flight of stairs, no staff present and elevator indication wasn't very obvious

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The Art Deco foyer and it's location. It is a landmark of Manhattan

    No in-room kettle / hot drink making facilities and room service was very expensive. Whatever class of hotel it's often great to make a hot drink when you first get up or arrive back after a busy day sight-seeing or shopping ! Rooms were very basic and fairly small - quite ordinary compared to the foyer

  • Older travelers

    I enjoyed the best all the history and tradition of elegance and luxury of the Waldorf Astoria as well as the fact that it continues to be as good as it always has been.

    I loved the fabulous interior and the welcoming and friendly staff. I also appreciated the location of the hotel, it was perfectly located to the main sights and sounds of manhattan.
