The Waldorf Astoria New York, New York USA
★ ★ ★ ★
A New York institution, almost a luxury resort in the city centre, that is recognised across the world as a destination in its own right. This extensive Art Deco property, dating back to 1931 overflows with nostalgia, from the ornate clock in the lobby to the glamorous silver corridor.
Many of the conference rooms and the Grand Ballroom have been beautifully restored to their former glory and represent a time when style and elegance were statement. The fine dining restaurant overflows with charm and the club-like bar must have many stories to tell.
Guests from across the world seeking nostalgia, decorum and a sure sense of respect for 1930s extravagance.
In the heart of the Midtown area, 1km (0.6 miles) to the east of Times Square and alongside a variety of other business orientated properties.

Bus stop 100m.
