Waldorf Astoria..Anyone stay??

Hi,Silly question, I have finally got a good rate for waldorf Astoria and was going to book but seen on there guest services section that no casual wear in lobby after 6pm, not that I am not refined but like my jeans and uggs when walking around NYC... Has anyone stayed ???and experience any issues.

Have you looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor?

I don't think you are not allowed to walk through the lobby in casual attire - I just think you can't go to the bars / restaurants in casual attire.

Oh,silly me..Just when I read there guest service description felt very not welcome...Maybe I will look some where more relaxed as Irish and we go out in Jeans and TShirts a lot so would like to stay some where we can feel comfortable. Maybe not me..

Hey MisseyB you can dress up for a meal or a drink. I was over once and fancied staying for a night and could not get a room at any price, so disappointed mind you I've also been turned away from the Ritz for not wanting to wear a tie

Look for something else and avoid the "poopy towel".

I am going there for a third stay in October, dressed casual in the bars, jeans and sneakers when returned from a days sightseeing, never been a problem and staff very accomodating, dressed up for a meal in the bull and bear and father in a tie. Highly reccommend and at the moment they are offering free room upgrades. Love our stays there!

We have stayed and jeans were fine in the lobby. We dressed up if we were going for a drink in the bar on the way in or out, but I think that may have involved super smart jeans And a jacket!

I have stayed in smarter but less glam hotels in NYC, but I would go back to the Waldorf any time. The staff are lovely- even with us falling through the door off a flight from London in jeans and trainers.
