Editorial review:

This famous hotel has been frequented by every sitting American president since Herbert Hoover. The staff is amazing and treats you like royalty. However, the rooms vary greatly in quality from pitiful to great. It has undergone a $60-million renovation and a Guerlain spa was added.

          • The location is great, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, this is an historic place to stay and the small lobby is beautiful and private. The concierge staff is absolutely the best ever, wonderful bed and full marble bathroom, business facilities are overcharged, for an average of 15 min, I paid £21.

            Calm in a busy city and nice old fashioned New York hotel. Not worth the money, stained tub and the service was impersonal, and the drinks overpriced.

          • The views were awesome, our stay at the Waldorf Towers was flawless and the reception staff were always helpful and on hand to assist. The marble bathroom was spacious, the two kinds of soap provided was lovely and the morning breakfast on the 26th floor was delicious and beautifully presented.

            Definitely not worth the price, room is small and crowded.
