Thank you for your kind words about your stay and we can't wait to welcome you back home! Our fireplaces project is being worked on expeditiously and we anticipate it's completion by November of this year.

Staff were wonderful and room was beautiful. I’ve stayed at less luxe hotels with more amenities, but overall the experience was great. In-room dining was excellent (the duck fat fries were especially good) and the bathrobes and linens provided were very luxurious.

We're so glad you had such a great time and I have to concur that the duck fat fries are my favorite too! We're anxious to bring back our amenities seven days a week and currently have all of our amenities open during the weekends. We hope to welcome you back soon and anticipate your return!

High quality everything!

The Waldorf is high class and quality from the minute you step in and are greeted, to the beautiful, comfortable, spacious rooms with all the amenities, including a Nespresso machine. We loved our stay there, and the staff were first class!
