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.

Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    confort and service

    we were supposed to get a king size bed and we got a queen size bed

  • Group of friends

    The stay was wonderful and the surroundings and location excellent. It was a luxury hotel and therefore the pricing reflected this. Never the less a very nice experience to go with my first trip to New York

  • Family with children

    Great hotel and good service. But confusion regarding my booking caused initial problems. However the staff made up with a one day complimentary upgrade to the Astoria Suites.

  • Couple

    Fantastic location, very friendly and helpful staff and free wi-fi in the lobby. The sunday brunch looked great but we didn't get it.

    It is huge and so lacks the personal touch of some smaller hotels. No swimming pool for a 5 star hotel. The lobby is extremely busy and noisy with people passing through a lot.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were very welcoming & helpful

    No safe in the room & minute closet. Catering was not up to scratch for such a big hotel.Was impossible to have a normal breakfast on the weekends ... buffet was compulsory. It would be good to be able to dine after 9pm at the coffee shop....food services expensive but not good. \We went to the Sherry Netherland each morning for an excellent well served breakfast at half the price!

  • Family with children

    Comfortable, old world charm, courteous and polite staff, overall great experience

    Different room charges were not communicated during modification of booking.

  • Older travelers

    Spacious room and bathroom, though decor was a little tired. Found all staff that we came in contact with friendly and professional. I had e mailed that this was a special birthday trip for my husband and there was a bottle of cava and a hand written note in our room.

    The main lobby is rather dark and gloomy. Would have enjoyed a swimming pool in the hotel.

  • Family with children

    Não gostei do quarto que me deram,mas prontamente trocaram,funcionarios atenciosos ,nivem de limpesa bom ,conforto exelente

  • Older travelers

    We had a lovely stay in the Waldorf. Enjoyed our stay very much. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 2.30 pm but besides that everything was perfekt.

  • Older travelers

    Our stay was intended to be a treat, and it was. A stay at the Waldorf Astoria is not something most people would shedule, but as a treat the stay was a lot of fun, and worth doing. It is an interesting place.

  • Family with children

    Wonderful old world charm hotel, mostly very friendly and helpful staff. Because we had something to celebrate, we got an upgrade to a minisuite with a view on the Chrysler building! Breakfast buffet at Oscar's very expensive, but also very good. Our older children very much liked the free WiFi in the lobby.

    We got the nightly turndown service only two times instead of every six nights. And when we asked specifically for a minivan to leave for the airport (because the check out staff had advised us to), the doorman hailed a normal cab despite our wish and acted rude to us. Not a very good farewell after a lovely stay.

  • Older travelers

    Lots of space in the rooms, new widescreen flat TV, excelent towels, etc. etc.

    There is a recession under way and the hotel has not done anything to help guests reducing their bill by making available a contintental breakfast at around $ 10, coffee and a couple of toasts. Breakfast at $ 30 is just too much if you are not on a corporate expense account. You can get a $ 10 breakfast downstairs at Starbucks but you have to wait in line (a long time) and then take the coffee and croissants to your room which is messy.

  • Family with children

    I lked the location ,the decoration, the reputation, and excellent tradition.

  • Couple

    The Waldorf Astoria is an iconic hotel in an excellent location right in the heart of Manhattan. The room was an excellent size and we really enjoyed our stay here. We especially liked the buzz in the beautiful lobby and having a cocktail watching the world go by.

    Some minor complaints about the room was that it smelled faintly of damp which the hotel was obviously aware of as they had left the windows open for the day before we had time to check in. Also the mini bar wasn't stocked and it's a shame our room didn't have a better view.

  • Group of friends

    lovely hotel and comfortable

    enjoy all except for the money taken off my account at the end of stay, took more than suppose and still hasn't been refunded bac to my card,emailed hotel direct but resonse was not good enough and didn't answer my question so not overly happy.
