This was our first visit to New York. As a treat for our daughter's 18th birthday. I had read reviews that said the hotel was past her best and that the staff were rude and unhelpful. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Our room was spacious and overlooked Park Ave. It was warm on arrival - to be fair it was 15F outside - but the a/c soon dropped the temperature. The bathroom fittings were dated but everything worked. The tv was modern, towels changed daily.
The public areas were fantastic and one could imagine the glamor of the twenties & thirties heydays of pre war NYC.
The staff were always willing to help and suggest places to go shopping or to eat, they even suggested that we should return in May when the climate was better.
I would recommend the Waldorf to everyone, yes it may not be a budget hotel but if you can afford that little bit extra it is well worth it - we got a very good deal by booking 6 months ahead and shopped around too.
