The Waldorf Astoria

43211 1 reviews

Poshbrood held our breath when we walked into the dazzling, fancy schmancy lobby with a baby in a stroller.  One wail or scream would disrupt the stunning and elaborate Art Deco masterpiece.  Thankfully, the baby didn’t scream and staff and guests couldn’t have been more charming, engaging or “goo goo gaga” to us.  We shared a two-bedroom suite in the Towers sectionwith grandparents and it was colossol, clean, well-appointed but could have used some updating. The suite had a kitchenette and microwave that was very helpful for warming bottles and a massive marble bath.  

The hotel brought a crib for the baby and were generally friendly, professional and helpful.  Our room was nice and quiet and we loved the famous 5th Avenue location that was so close to restaurants, museums, shops and a 15 minute walk to Central Park.  We loved the history and the hustle and bustle of the hotel, which is a New York City landmark. We'll be back!

Stunning old world hotel in strolling distance to Mid-Town fun. Pre-baby we'd stayed in a residential suite and it was beyond fabulous--I was ready to move in to the expansive living room, bedroom, dressing room and huge bathroom. Non-resi suite was perfect for travel with baby (W=A provided crib), though the fridge wasn't quite set up for personal use and had trouble getting our ice packs re-frozen for storing breast milk. Also took a small room for our nanny, who found it too low/loud to sleep above the fire station and had to move (not sure which side she was on, but she's a particularly light sleeper). Bit of a mess checking in with car and baby. Valet sent me in one direction, nanny and baby in another direction, and kept husband at car to sign in. Also, room service was a disappointment. Cold French toast with no syrup, etc. Most expensive room service-for-least-pleasure I've had in a long time.
