We've been staying at the Waldorf the last few years around Christmas, always with Hilton Honors points. While it has been a favorite of ours it seems to be losing its luster for us.
The thin walls between rooms are not a problem if quiet guests are staying next door or the adjacent room is unoccupied. However, on a recent trip the baby in the room next door was crying so loudly I was tempted to get up and warm up a bottle myself. On this most recent trip we were serenaded by a teenage girl and her younger brothers' constant squabbles. It was so loud that we could have joined in on the conversation about who used whose toothbrush.
Other little nits included the bathroom light that would not turn off (there was a problem with the switch) and another light in the room where the pull chain was broken off. In order to turn it on and off we had to tighten or loosen the bulb.
For our 3 member family we had a room with two double beds. For a room at this price level there should be more than one night stand with a single lamp between the two beds. It ended up not lighting anyone's reading area.
The beds are comfortable as you would expect but stay away from the $29 Continental breakfast for 1. (Plus $5.50 service charge and 15% gratuity.)
The location is excellent and the gorgeous lobby is still a reason to visit.
