I made the reservation last June for two, but my daughter and her friend wanted to go on college visits in NYC and I suggested they travel with us to NYC. Rollaway beds were $50 per night each and I was offered an upgrade for the same amount as the rollaway bed into a much nicer sweet with an extra bathroom. I really appreciated the upgrade as it made a trip that could have been very trying very wonderful. As it turned out, we rarely saw the girls and had a great time since we all had the space we needed.

A great experience because of a very accommodating and special front desk clerk. It made all the difference in the world.

We booked a room at the Waldorf Astoria but got upgraded to the Towers as we were staying 11 nights. The size of the room is just right, not too big for it to be cold but definitely not small. The design is art decor which is expected for the hotel so if you are into more modern/contemporary interiors, then this is not the place for you. Complimentary breakfast at the Astoria Lounge on Level 26 was good. They always seemed to be very busy and sometimes you have to wait for a seat. The staff in Astoria Lounge are lovely, even when it's busy and they are receiving all sorts of requests from guests, they keep a smile on their face and still try to clear tables so that waiting guests can be seated. We were there for 11 mornings and it was always busy!
It would have been good if complimentary wifi was provided but you could always go to the ground floor and access free wifi in reception.

The bed is very comfortable but the heating/air-conditioning made random sounds through out the night, often disturbing our sleep.

Overall, the Towers is very nice but we would not stay in a room here if we were not upgraded. The location of the Waldorf is excellent, within walking distance to most places.

My husband and I live in a suburb of Manhattan, and each year we go into NYC for the weekend right before Christmas. We usually stay at The Helmsley--which we love--the views are spectacular. But i think the Towers is our new spot! The hotel staff were so accomadating, the room we stayed in was above and beyond our expectations--we have the executive suite on the 40th floor--we will be back!!
But the bar prices were over the top--but it is New York!

I got married in a suite at the Towers and had the reception in Peacock Alley. The suite was the most expensive one with a HUGE living room, dressing room, HUGE bedroom, bathroom, two study areas, massive hallway...it was an incredibly beautiful room. The furnishings are so classic, the views amazing. My wedding co-ordinator Carmen was wonderful too. We had a small wedding party of 23 so it wasnt the large grand wedding that usually takes place at this hotel but the smallish size of Peacock Alley private dining room was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff at the wedding meal were fantastic.

Having stayed at the regular Waldorf twice before but not the towers, I can say the difference was worth paying for. The service at reception and concierge was so much better, no queue at all, phone answered right away etc, whereas in the regular hotel you can wait ages at the reception desk or on the phone to guest services.

I had a wonderful wedding there - I got a night free and stayed 3 nights which made it a bit more affordable. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend getting married at the Waldorf, a timeless, classic, beautiful venue for any wedding, large or small.

The free breakfast in the Towers lounge was also great - and if you can, get a window table there as the view is incredible!

For a three day annual getaway to NY with my sister, I chose the Towers over other expensive mid-town hotels on the basis of excellent Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The location is unbeatable. The discreet side street entrance and small lobby give the Towers an intimacy right away (cabs can pull into an interior unloading entrance which is convenient also). The desk staff and luggage people were correct,courteous and helpful. We were early and the room was not quite ready but the desk clerk suggested a short wait in the 26th floor club. The club floor turned out to be a huge convenience because a very nice breakfast buffet is served there in the morning, plus tea, coffee and snacks all day until 4 pm, which is pleasant after a tiring day rushing around Manhattan. The room was slightly dated in decor and the bathroom was somewhat small, but all amenities were there--flat screen TV, large closet, pristine linens, and the room itself was extremely spacious and totally quiet. This is hard to find in NY! Criticism: bathtub was chipped and there were handprints on the wall paper which concealed the closet. Also, when making a reservation online you are asked if you want to upgrade for "$39 " per night. First of all, I don't appreciate feeling I need to upgrade from an already expensive rate to get a nice room. Second, there wasn't actually a $39 upgrade when I checked, the available rooms were suites available at much higher prices per night. Despite these minor criticisms, I will definitely return to this pleasant, reliable, and quite special hotel.
