I've stayed at the Waldorf many times, both with my husband and on my own. While I agree with some other reviewers that yes, the rooms are small, it is Manhatten real estate after all. I've found the rooms clean and neat, with modern conveniences like flat screen tvs and historic touches like marble fixtures.
Staff is always attentive, and the one time I had a problem with that flat screen they sent a maintenance person to fix it within an hour.
I love the historic ambience of the hotel, and the proximity to many mid-town attractions. I usually stay twice a year. I can walk to theatres, restaurants and museums. New York is a city made for walking, and mid-town a great location.
I also feel very safe there when I am on my own. New York can be overwhelming when I'm overtired, and the Waldorf is a haven from my adventures.
Yes, the restaurants are expensive, but again, it's Manhatten. The food is consistentlfy good and they change the menus to reflect the seasons. Last time I visited I went to Peacock Alley for a light dinner and cocktail before my play started and everything was delicious.
Yes, there are more modern hotels in NYC, but I keep going back to the Waldorf for the charm, the ambience, the service, the location, and the attention to detail. I feel like I am in old New York, with just a touch of the modern day to make me comfortable.
