Lovely hotel near Rockefeller Center

Pros: Extraordinary staff, friendly and efficient. The lobby is truly beautiful and the rooms roomy and comfortable. The food was excellent everywhere.
Cons: The rooms are a little old, though that is part of their charm.
Location: Center of New York, near the museums and everything else... too much say - New York!
The staff was attentive and extremely courteous. Any issues we had were almost instantly resolved. The hotel's interior architecture and decorations are magnificent. Would recommend it to anyone and would go again if possible. Wonderful place and people.

Pros: The people who worked there were all great.
Cons: Carpets, window treatments and furnishings are in serious need of an update!! The lounge on the 26th floor seems nothing more than a room with tables.
Location: Very close to Rockefeller Center. You can even walk to Central Park. Grand Central not far either.
Although the rooms seem a bit dated, there is still an old-school elegance about the place. The Towers have a private entrance and the staff make you seem as if you are a permanent guest. Unfortunately we requested connecting rooms through Expedia which we did not get, but the hotel staff tried to make up for this by comping our breakfasts which was very nice. It was nice to have the private entrance to the towers but still have access to The Waldorf.

Pros: It's old school charm and customer service to an exceptionally high standard.
Cons: Based on our experience I can't think of anything at all
Location: Centrally located for all the things on our to do list the doormen will flag down passing taxi's for you if you don't want to walk anywhere.
This was our retirement present to ourselves much anticipated as the trip of a lifetime and we were not disappointed! Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful team of staff who looked after our every need from start to finish. Our room was on the 40th floor and had every facility that you would expect from a 5* plus a fantastic view of the Chrysler building! Price we paid included a daily fantastic continental breakfast buffet and as an added bonus afternoon tea buffet which we weren't aware of onto we checked in. I can't praise enough the superb experience our 5 day stay gave us we intend to make a return visit in 3 years time once all the refurbishments are completed.

Loved the Waldorf. It oozes old fashion charm and history. Stayed in a Tower Suite large and elegant room. Service is great and the staff are so helpful. Maybe because they also love the hotel. Go now as the hotel closes end of Feb. Shame on New York to allow this wonderful building to be dis spoiled.
