Welcome to the new millennium, Waldorf Astoria. We all seemed to have arrived, but you have seemed to stay in the 1950's with your ac/ heating system. So when we entered our room, when it was finally ready, I noticed that it was as HOT AS BALLS! So I went over to the temperature gauge on the wall and turned it down to 67 degrees. It had to be like 80 in our room. Hours went by and I noticed that it was not cooling.
So, I called the front desk and asked them how to turn the heat down. Their answer, "Well, you really can't turn it down because the heat is on for the whole hotel." WHAT????? Okay, for 600.00 a night one would think that you would be able to regulate the temperature in your own guest room. Seriously!
So the front desk told me that I could open the window. Great. Well that would have been great if I could have managed to open the window on my own. But no, I had to call maintenance to do it for me. Are you kidding? Unfortunately, I am not kidding.
I cannot say that i will return to this hotel just because of this one issue. It is miserable to be too hot in a hotel room and you need to tip someone handsomely just to open a window. Never again.
