I was feeling trepidatious before we checked in, based on the reviews I had read. I needn't have worried - the Waldorf is a beautiful, well-appointed hotel. The lobby is spectacular.
We were in a queen deluxe room which was spacious and had a separate, walk-in closet. The bathroom was lovely, although the shower wasn't straightforward and required a bit of analysis to perfect. The free wifi is only available in the lobby, and judging by the number of people there, fiddling with their devices, the in-room wifi fee isn't widely utilised. We were able to use the gym free of charge (although we didn't) but I understand some other guests must pay a fee.
The location in Midtown East is perfect if you like Art Deco. Everywhere you look is another splendid example of the era. Even if you don't, the hotel is within walking distance to almost everywhere in Manhattan.
