New York luxury hotels | Waldorf Towers

My impression of the Waldorf Towers began while waiting for the Sales Manager to arrive to begin my site inspection. I watched as three generations of a family arrived at the Waldorf; I saw their two young, impeccably dressed granddaughters twirling in the marble lobby. Then a fashionably dressed mother and her three teenaged daughters walked through the hotel, leaving for a day of shopping on Madison Avenue. This as much as anything told me about the guests for whom the Waldorf Towers would be the ideal hotel for a trip to New York.

The Waldorf Towers is a small luxury hotel within the very large Waldorf Astoria located on Park Avenue. With its own private entrance on E. 50th Street, the Waldorf Towers is comprised mostly of suites — elegant, impeccably decorated accommodations with a neo-classical style that reminds one of an earlier gilded age. The suites are incredibly large with full living rooms well suited for entertaining and wonderful bedrooms. The hotel is so configured that it is easy to create anything up to a five bedroom suite. Even the yet-to-be-renovated rooms were wonderful, and the newly renovated suites are even more so. A special treat: walking down the hallways and viewing the pictures of the many celebrities who have visited this storied hotel.
