"So glad I chose the Waldorf"
I love hotels with character, even if this means they sometimes have a faded charm or are a little worn at the edges. Far better than soulless glass monoliths. The Waldorf Astoria in New York is closing next week for refurbishment and will reopen as a smaller hotel. I hope they keep the Art Deco style and merely modernise. My wife and I stayed in a suite in the 22nd floor and had an absolutely wonderful time. The room was spacious with modern conveniences (its own WiFi, iPod/iPhone docking station, large flat screen TV etc) but still maintained its charm. It also had wonderful views looking out at the Chrysler Building, another Art Deco masterpiece. The hotel oozes history and the lobby is famously splendid. Pictures of previous guests adorn every wall - from Presidents, Prime Ministers through to Royalty via the greats of the arts (Sinatra, McCartney etc). Whilst expensive (eye wateringly so), the bars are a must, even if you can only afford one cocktail. Unusually, for TripAdvisor, a review on this hotel is futile as it closes on March 1st for 2-3 years. I just wanted to record my wonderful stay here - to celebrate both my 50th Birthday and 25th wedding anniversary. Thank you, Waldorf Astoria.
"Home away from home- LOVE Jackie Grant!!"
I was fortunate enough to be a weekly resident for 13 years!!! I have traveled throughout my 30 year career- and can honestly say that there is no one like Jackie anywhere! Her attention to detail- her goal to make everything perfect for me and the other guests making every trip special. I have far too many wonderful stories to tell- from remembering my birthday, for always having my luggage waiting for me when I arrived, for taking care of my parents whenever I brought them with me, for taking great care of my sons when they were with me (cookies and milk when one of them showed up with a broken arm!!) NY's eve in the Bull and Bear...I can only say thank you from me and my whole family for making the Waldorf our home! My husband, mom and sons will be with you all the last official night- we couldn't miss another few days there! Thank you as well to Michael Espinosa, Mary, Cervando and all of my friends!! There is no hotel like the Waldorf Astoria !!!!
We have been guests at the Waldorf Astoria for decades now, and it is closing its doors for a major renovation on March 1st. Yesterday, we checked out for the last time, and we're sad to leave. Our stays could not have been the fabulous experiences they have been all these years without the attention of the world-class staff. In particular, we should single out Jackie Grant (known as "Jax" to her friends, which includes us!)... Jax worked in Diamond Reception, and always made us feel like we were coming home when we arrived. Of all the great employees there, we were the saddest to see her leave. Good luck in your next life adventure, Jax!!!! You are the best!!!
"Great overnight trip!"
My friend and I stayed over on a Thursday night to attend the concert. I really wanted to stay here before the hotel closes for renovation. I'm glad I did! The lobby is absolutely gorgeous. The ambiance of the whole reception room was delightful, which includes a pianist by the restaurant and glass cases full of historical memorabilia throughout the years. I able to check-in a little bit early by a very nice gentleman, which gave us more time for sight-seeing. The location of the hotel was very convenient in regards to the subway stations. The check-out process went by great as well. Ms. Rebecca V. was very courteous and friendly as I settled my bill. All in all, it was a great experience and Waldorf's renowned hospitality definitely lives up to its hype! Visit this place before it's gone!
"Wonderful Service and Comfortable Accomidations"
Years of wonderful accomidations and good service. Jackie and Mary at the Diamond Desk have always been so helpful. Home away from home. The private functions have always exceeded expectations. Thanks for the memories.
