Weekend stay

Air conditioner is not adjustable . Very hot at night . Shower is not instant , you have to wait long time for water to adjust temperature . Either too hot or too cold . Bed is too soft and pillow is hard. Not as good as it says

Mixed feelings

Pros: - Location is really still unbeatable for business travelers - Certain staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly - Probably very social atmosphere for seniors Cons: - Unfortunately looks exactly the same as when I stayed in 2005 - Room heaters / AC are from the middle ages, I had to keep mine off for the whole stay - Staffing issues! They can't seem to handle the 1,800 odd rooms. Examples: (1) I called the concierge three times during my stay and never got through; was either put on hold and hung up after 5 minutes waiting or nobody picked up. (2) called the bellboy to help with bags at 1pm on checkout day and called again every ten minutes until 1:50pm when somebody finally showed up. Then the bellhop was half begging for a tip!! (3) I had a few packages sent there and the package room vs. Business center is not integrated so large packages and small packages go to different rooms and those rooms dont' coordinate or have access to each other's records. (4) really many more examples - Booking issues! My company booked 4 nights for me and I booked another 2 nights myself. Waldorf system never could connect the two bookings and this came up a few times in my stay - Billing issues! I was billed for internet 3 times after having prepaid for a week and being told I won't be billed again. Worse still, the multiple charges were on the first bill for the first stay and I was never informed or asked about the charges that were put on my card! Each of the above would be enough for me to take off 1 star from the review but in total it indicates that the hotel fundamentally has issues that will be very difficult to fix.

Small rooms, tiny bathroom and odd smells!!

Our room was small and the bathroom was tiny!! There was a damp smell throughout the hotel (more so on our level than the lobby). The air conditioner was really cold no matter what setting we changed it too and it blew really cold air directly onto the bed! Also the pillows were awful...really really soft so your head sunk down to the mattress!!

Stepping back in time for a genteel night away

The Waldorf is a lovely old hotel, very genteel, very comfortable bed. Bathroom old fashioned and tight. No tea/coffee in the room but an experience to say 'I've been there'. Staff excellent, very pleasant check in process. Glad we did it. Close to subway, walking around the area very easy, close to Grand Central Station...about 4 blocks away.

Blown Away

We wanted to stay in Manhattan. Not knowing much about NYC (as this was our first visit), we searched this website and read the reviews. This helped us A LOT!!. The Hotel was EVERYTHING we expected and more. Nice standard size room (not massive, but enough), excellent service & staff, amazing atmosphere, brilliant foyer, wonderful amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and it DEFINITELY made our FIRST NYC visit SO MUCH BETTER!!

Bobby Vans Restaurant was INCREDIBLE. As your concierge to show you where it is (5min walk from the Waldorf). The food was impecable and the service was second to none.

If its fit for presidents its

If its fit for presidents its good enough for me. Historic hotel in great location and excellent service. It was an experience rather than just a bed though the bed was sensational.
