We made a quick two night trip to NYC for my wife's birthday. We booked on-line and took them up on their offer of an upgrade if available at check in. I agreed to all three upgrade options and we wound up getting two bedroom suite. The rate was $329/night.
Clearly part of why we stayed at the Waldorf was its storied past. Indeed, the lobby oozes of old time class. Although I'm not sure how strictly enforced, they ask all men to wear slacks and a collared shirt after 6 pm. The room was comfortable, but the bathroom kind of small. Also no wireless internet in the room. (The room is wired and the lobby has wireless.)
The hotel is close to a subway stop and an easy walk to Radio City, etc., but there really weren't a whole lot of shopping places or restaurants right nearby.
