We stayed at the Waldorf as we were getting married in New York and wanted something extra special so we immediately thought of the Waldorf-astoria! The size of the rooms is something that you will struggle to find elsewhere in New York. As you walk into the lobby you definitely get that wow factor, which is what we wanted. But as you can imagine, based on the age of the hotel, there is limited modern facilities. If they were to invest or provide services that some modern hotels are now starting to offer, such as include wifi/coffee machine with your room rates the waldorf would see no equal. Saying that, everything is available but just expect to have your wallet take a hit!
All the staff are polite and will help if you have any queries but you are definitely treated in a swift and efficient manner, which is more than you could hope for in most hotels, but in a hotel with the reputation of the Waldorf I would expect them to try and go that extra distance to ensure your stay is the best it could possibly be.
Fantastic hotel and is definitely an experience but in some ways it is just not quite there...
Just to be clear, I am being picky, but I think you can be with a hotel that wants,and should be, in the upper eliteMore
