The Waldorf Astoria in New York would really appeal to those that are keen on historical places of interest that are essentially preserved for the sake of history itself. If this yanks your chain then this hotel will do it for you.

The reception area is quite grand, in the old way, and clad in quite a bit of wood. Needless to say there are a variety of rooms available - the room I had wasn't anything to write back home about at all, despite coming at US $533 per night! I definitely wouldn't agree to such a room at such a price again, despite the "experience" of being in a historical hotel where presidents and other states-people have tended to stay when in New York.

Room Tip: Not sure if trying to seek out a good room is really worth it. You could spend the same amount and get a really great room at a much more modern hotel not far from the Waldorf...

Hard to beat the history or location of the Waldorf but that is where it stops. We had an upgraded room and it still didn't even have a bath tub. Tiny bathroom with a tiny shower. At $500 bucks a night I was very disappointed. Skip the history and spend less for more at other hotels in Manhattan.

the Waldorf Astoria can be characterised as a Grand hotel, that's showing its age in the bedrooms, but can still hold its head high and haughty in the public rooms.

You know when you choose to stay here that you are going to be charged ridiculous prices for the priviledge of gracing the hallowed spaces of such a grand hotel ($240 for the Sunday brunch for two, $50 for 2 martinis), but hey, that's part of the experience. And actually, you do feel quite special if you go with the flow and just soak up the NY high society atmosphere.

But it's the little meannesses that show the crone side to the old lady. Wifi is free in the very defined area of the lobby but $16/day in your $400 room (it's free in the $100 Hyatt Place...). And the worst crime, the bathroom toiletries extend only to a shampoo, conditioner and a hand cream. NO shower gel! Just how mean is that! One of the luxuries of staying away is slowing down and having the time to take a leisurely bubble bath...only no shower gel = no bubbles. Dreadful.

We found an excellent breakfast available just around the corner (58th & Lexington) in Brass for half the price of the (quite good) Oscar offering. Somehow it's sets the day off all wrong when you've been dinged for over $110 for breakfast for two. It crosses the line from "Expensive but goes with the turf" to "They're having a laugh at my expense".

Our room was in quite good condition, some small tatty and grubby edges that would really need a complete refurbishement to deal with, but we kept the lights turned down low and enjoyed the fine linens on the bed and plush furnishings.

We didn't have much interaction with the staff after checking in, but found the reception and concierge charming and helpful, and most corridor passes prompted a very friendly greeting. I thought our waiter in Peacock Alley was pretty useless and graceless, although the barman was delightful.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay, perhaps by setting our expectations right going in, but probably wouldn't return on our own budget.

Room Tip: Higher levels will suffer less from city noise

For the tariff we paid to stay at the Waldorf, you would have expected a wonderful room, but on arrival at my room, I found it pretty average. I would have expected the bedspread/linen to be wonderful but was very disappointed. The bed was comfortable with lots of comfy pillow, but the whole room has quite an aged feel to it, not worth the price we paid.
It did have a fantastic view of the Chrysler building from our window.
We had breakfast one morning, but at $40 per person, expensive and very average. Why do American have to "cremate" their bacon, it so tough I couldn't eat it.
Beautiful foyer with a lovely clock which chimes regularly. Also the price of their hot drinks was over the top, at about $10 each.
An experience to stay at the Waldorf, but I don't think I would stay there again.

I gave the Waldorf another try during a recent stay in NYC for an event in the hotel ballroom and was disappointed yet again. Rates were approaching $500 (close to $600 with taxes!) and the rooms looked equivalent to what you'd find in a $100 NYC room. Beyond the beautiful lobby and service are dated rooms that are in desperate need for an update and TLC. The carpets look to be about as old as the hotel is. The bathrooms look at least 15 years old and are not at all comfortable. The A/C is loud, as is the noise level from hallway traffic. The rest of the room leaves nothing to offer. I've heard the suites are much nicer, but if you plan on staying in a standard guest room you will be much happier at the many other options available to you just blocks away. Sorry Waldorf.
