A New York Classic with a great Mid-Town location, this hotel offers large rooms that are quiet (well insulated from street noise). I will highlight 2 short-comings in the beginning of the review, as that is where I find the value in reading other traveler's reviews. One, the front desk is chronically understaffed. For any transaction (check-in, check-out, have a... More

Public rooms are fabulous - but our room (988) had no view at all. The whole room was tired and I am sure that the rust and mould on the grille over the bath were just a courtesy extra. Be aware that the hotel's policy means that they reserve the right to charge you corkage if you take yr own... More

Excellent location! The hotel is very famous and this is why it was able to charge a lot for averagely equipped rooms: outdated bathrooms and furniture (except for the towers, but their rooms are even more expensive), but the size of the room is good, even large compare to nearby luxury hotels. it has very elegant foyer and bar: probably...

On any scale one rates a hotel; location, staff and people, character and accommodations nothing in NYC compares to the waldorf. It is quintessential New York. The towers offer privacy that is impossible to find in a busy Manhattan based hotel.

The Waldorf-Astoria in NY is a wonderful place to stay. The proximity to midtown attractions as well as central location in Manhattan make it incredibly convenient. Also, it is quiet - something one doesn't always find in a Manhattan hotel.
