Editorial Reviews

Top Waldorf insiders take you on a journey through time as they share the legacy of "the unofficial palace of New York," from its star-studded opening in 1893 to its glorious present. Learn how the "folly" of a New York investor became a world-renowned legend, why 12 hours could have changed Manhattan as we know it, who inspired some of America's most celebrated dishes, and more. Discover how The Waldorf Astoria shaped the social fabric of a nation and engineered many innovations still appreciated today. Through meticulously preserved historic photography, stunning video footage, and well-crafted prose, step inside a living landmark-and one of America's greatest Art Deco treasures.

As one of the first "grand hotels", The Waldorf Astoria is synonymous with the elegance and grandeur of the best of New York City. For over a century, The Waldorf Astoria was possibly the world's most celebrated and renowned hotel. On March 24, 1893, millionaire William Waldorf Astor opened the 13-story Waldorf Hotel. At that time, The Waldorf was the embodiment of Astor's vision of a grand hotel, complete with electricity throughout and private bathrooms in many guest chambers. Four years later, The Waldorf was joined by the 17-story Astoria Hotel, erected on an adjacent site by Waldorf's cousin, John Jacob Astor IV. In 1929, after decades of hosting distinguished visitors from around the world, the original Waldorf Astoria closed to pave the way for a reincarnation 15 blocks north on Park Avenue. The current hotel opened on October 1, 1931 as the world's largest and tallest hotel, a veritable city-within-a-city. Today, it is a member of the National Trust Historic Hotels of America and an official New York City landmark since 1993. It remains one of the world's largest Art Deco buildings and The Waldorf Astoria continues to be one of the city's most beloved - and utilized - institutions.
