The Waldorf Astoria, wreaks of splendor, oozes with money. The attention by the staff is fantastic, all the staff we met, wanted to help and assist, from the bell hop on the front door, which we had the pleasure to be with for an hour whilst waiting for our car. To the maid who wished us a pleasant journey as she watched us with our suitcase going towards the lift.
Once checked-in we went to our room. The room wasn't the most spacious one I have been in, but was OK. Two large beds comfortable enough. After calling reception twice for a firm pillow, we decided, that after the nine pillows that had been delivered, we weren't going to get a firm one. The TV was large, and channels a plenty. But there was no tea/coffee facilities, which makes this room, OK, not one to kick back after a hard days walking and shopping to rest in. The bathroom carried on the basic approach with old fittings, and a bath that couldn't fill up fast enough as the water drain through the closed plug.
The windows need double glazing. Because at around 2am all trucks in New York city have to drive backwards and make that beeping sound, or thats what it sounded like from our room.
When in the Waldorf, you must eat the Waldorf salad... and yes it was nice, although the accompanying bread had seen better days. The whisky and beers were also nice.
This hotel is nice for conferences, meetings, and its location, but if you value money more than the pretentious of staying near the city center then choose elsewhere, otherwise you will be disappointed.
