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.

                I always stay at the Waldorf when in New York - this time, I stayed in the Towers, and I would definitely stay in the Towers each time from now on - you have your own private reception, and area of the hotel, so even in the busiest times, there is never a queue.
