Waldorf Astoria New York has been known as the epicenter of New York’s cultural, social and political life since it opened its famed doors in 1931. It is the preferred New York residence of heads-of-state, royalty, celebrities and corporate moguls, not to mention the New York home away from home for every sitting President since Herbert Hoover.
Not only was the hotel host to a slew of legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Cole Porter, and Frank Sinatra, it has also been the go to location for many major events throughout the years as it is home to New York City’s only four-story, two-tiered ballroom. Everything from Guy Lombardo’s annual New Year’s Eve Galas to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to the annual Peabody Awards have been celebrated in the Grand Ballroom. In addition, it is the New York City hotel of choice for movie press junkets with the ability to host numerous junkets at one time. Recent junkets include Friends with Kids, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and The Dictator.
We were fortunate enough to spend a fabulous weekend at the Waldorf complete with an incredible suite in the Towers. High above Manhattan, on the upper floors of the Waldorf Astoria, exists a luxury Manhattan boutique hotel sure to satisfy the most discerning traveler. The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria New York marries impeccable service and opulent amenities with residential-style luxury hotel accommodations as legendary as the guests who have stayed within.
On our first night, we dined at The Bull and Bear Steakhouse, which is one of the most historic and well-recognized bars in New York City. This celebrated steakhouse offers signature chops with Prime Angus steaks as well as seafood. The next day we celebrated our 'Weekend at the Waldorf' with massages at the Guerlain Spa located on site at the Waldorf.
Cheers to our Weekend at the Waldorf!
