A classy establishment – Wonderful. I spent a snowy weekend here, and it was just like being in the movies. The service was a little slow because we were snowed in, but most of the time it was up to par. The architechture and history of this hotel make this most definately a typical new york experience. the waldorf salad is fantastic by the way. the rooms were good, make sure you get a good one, we switched from a smallish corner room to a bigger side room.
The Original New York Luxury Hotel – I stayed at the Waldorf in September 2003 and had a great stay. I came to the site shopping price. After reading the reviews, and those of other luxury hotels in the city-I remembered why I was so intent on staying at the Waldorf in the first place. It is like no place else. The hotel is so beautiful and a true architectual gem. And the service that I had received was nothing but outstanding. I have decided to go ahead and spend the extra money and stay at the Waldorf again. It is not contemporary or modern by any means, and is not meant to be. It is truely the epitome of classic travelling and old-world charm-rare for these days. The Waldorf is the kind of hotel that if you're lucky you get to stay at more than once in your life-and I'm looking forward to my second stay!
Save Your Money – The Waldorf is beautiful and it has great historical value to it, however it is NOT worth the money to stay there. Save your money, and stay at HoJo's in Time's Square.
Wonderful hotel – This hotel is one of the most beautiful I have seen! Yes, it is a little expensive, but worth it considering the size of the rooms and the bathrooms! Definitely stay here if you get a chance!! The beds and pillows are luxurious.
The Dame's A Little Weary, But Worth It – I had an enjoyable stay here. It is almost unparalleled for "old world" elegance; even today's chic, top hotels don't have the beauty that hotels like this have. I thought the check-in line was unnecessarily long, but it moved quickly. Could use better toiletries and softer towels. The beds were very comfortable. And for the price ($199 per night), it's tough to find such comfortable digs in NYC.
overpriced snobbery and poor service – We had been looking forward to our vacation to New York for nine months. We were particularly excited about staying at The Waldorf due to it's history and reputation as a landmark of elegance. When we arrived at 3:30 p.m. (30 minutes after posted check in time) our room was not ready. We had been on a flight for 6 hours and braved thunderstorms only to wait an additional hour and a half for our room. It was just the beginning of the poor and extremely slow service at this hotel. Expect to wait on hold for 30 minutes to get robes, extra towels or coffee. Unless you are staying in a very expensive suite the service is worse than that of a Motel 6. The room was extremely small and housekeeping was atrocious. I cannot recommend this hotel. Do not Stay at the Waldorf.
Early Check-Out, Like it or not! – Great Hotel, but expect to feel like they're running you out on your last day!
On check out day...The maid started at 9am and three times tried to enter our room. Expect someone to barge in at 10am to check your "mini bar" and then ask (rudely) "What time are you checking out?" Expect a rude baggage clerk, who could not be found (we suspect he was napping back in a corner somewhere and we woke him!) All in all, it was okay, but not very good in service and niceness of the employees. They even spoiled the suprise for my wifes birthday by leaving a msg on my home answering machine after we discussed it! The Manager seemed indifferent when I told her of these problems upon checkout. They seemed to know little about their package deals. I had to ask for everything due us on the "Shoppers Package"
A Magical Week – Our little girls loved the walk-in closet, the wonderfully soft beds, playing in the ballroom, Megan, the consierge, and the extra-chocolate in their chocolate milk every morning! My husband and I loved the large marble bathroom with deep tub and the fresh-squeezed OJ and pastries!
We had a magical week in NYC and found the Waldorf to be warm and wonderful and very kid friendly!
Love this place! – I stayed here with a friend last fall and thought it was fabulous! We got a free upgrade our first night (we didn't even have to ask) and the room was awesome, and although the room we had the second night wasn't as big or as lovely, it was still comfortable and clean. We loved the service and definitely recommend hanging out in the lobby or grabbing a drink in Sir Harry's Bar - both are great places to relax and people-watch!
gastly – I had a great time, There was nothing I would have changed.
