Goegeous hotel,luxourious. A bit impersonal, had to get a ticket to get a bellhop to take bags to room - not clear where to get ticket from so didnt do this. Paying this much a bell hop should be at the door when you arrive to take your bas up the large staircase. No computers for internet - needed own laptop to use internet. Location not nearly like I thought - had to walk quite a few blocks to get to central part,times square, etc. Close to Fifth Ave shops which was good.
Reception area was beautiful. Rooms are very dated and I had the unfortunate experience of staying beside a suite and the the people staying it in liked to party in it until 5.30am. Kitchen was adjoined to my room and heard every footstep and every word. Reception offer me to move rooms at 5.30am rather than asking the guests to have some respect for others. Never again.
location, comfort, architecture, and the history! pitiful tv reception, no free internet access from room
The hotel staff were very friendly, easy to approach and very helpful. Amazing hotel. Nothing.
Staff were all very friendly the hotel interior was outstanding with a style and appearance from a different era. Rooms a bit small but understand in NYC you don't get a lot for your money.
Arranged the visit for the 60th birthday of my sister and were both very pleased to receive a bottle of wine in the room- a very kind gesture ,thankyou! Staff always very courteous and helpful. Would be nice to have tea making facilities in room, otherwise can't think of anything more!
Location Overcharged for a bottle of water
The Waldorf is a fabulous hotel. We loved everything about this hotel. The decor was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. I cant praise this hotel and the staff enough.
The staff were very helpful The room was comfortable but not luxurious.
A very poor experience The rooms were all 1970's needs a major refurbishment
The name Waldorf Astoria There is no intimacy .. too big! A bit cold ..
thanks for the great service.
The views from our tower room were amazing. Staff were helpful and courteous. I would especially like to thank Ces for his personalised service, even though the shuttle did not not pick us up. We were given the wrong information regarding where to board our shuttle service and consequently, missed our transfer to the airport. The shuttle service was rung by reception at the hotel, but the company told us we had been given the wrong information as to where to meet the shuttle and they were not willing to provide us with another service to the airport. We then had the added expense of a taxi fare to JFK, to meet our flight. I did not appreciate this. Also, given the cost of accommodation, I would like to have seen internet access built into the price, not as an additional cost to the customer.
Lovely location, very good service. The room was very nice but the bathroom was quite poor in comparison. Enjoyed Sunday brunch. Had a problem with checking in....had the reservation under the wrong name. Didn't like breakfast in Oscars...the food was poor and the coffee was cold
We think this is the best boutique hotel in New York. Impeccable service, historic surroundings, magnificent public rooms. Great room service food. A bit pricey, but so is everything in NYC.
It is successfully located - in the center of Manhattan, near to city centre and sights Stopped in 5* parts of hotel. All strongly become outdated, noise both from street, and from the lift and hotel, the sanitary technician and other demands serious reconstruction. Full not conformity to the price offer. A level 3* plus.
The decor and availability of room service as well as the location The hotel is very small and cramped. The floor we stayed on had a horrible fried food odor that was overwhelming every day of our stay. I did not feel that the overall quality was representative of a 5-star hotel.
The Chatwal fires on all cylinders. Every need is attended to. Expensive, but worthwhile. The bathroom was amazing, but using the shower at full pressure actually caused a bit of a flood. The climate and lighting control is handled by a single touch-screen unit, but its operation is a little complicated. Light-switches shouldn't be confusing.
Staff was very cordial and gave excellent customer service. Charge for Wi-Fi was unexpected for a $700 a night room.
Large rooms, excellent location
We architecture of the overall hotel was very elegant. And the rooms were nicely appointed with unique furniture. Charging for Internet access
Our room directly overlooked St. Patrick's Cathedral and it was gorgeous. The room was spacious (unusual for NY), clean and comfortable. There's a wonderful café right off the beautiful hotel lobby for specialty coffees and French pastries, and the fitness center is amazing. Plenty of bar/restaurants within walking distance, as are many of the tourist attractions such as Rock Center. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will look into staying there again. There was nothing that I disliked about this hotel, although I would have preferred a lower internet rate (it is $16/day).
location room wasnt clean properly by housekeeping
Staff was great, service excellent, rooms were huge in the Tower No coffe in room, very pricey to have sent to your room
Absolutely beautiful hotel in a great location! Loved my stay there!! Charging 16.00 per day for wifi is insane
Nice ambiance. Good elevators to get to room efficiently Poor housekeeping. Bathroom smelled musty. They forgot to leave washcloths one time. Then forgot to leave shampoo another time. When we called for shampoo to shower took 1.5 hours to come. Also asked for blankets when checked in which never came.
Location, good neibourhood , good loung and snack shop . Also rooms were good side and clean with proper functioning bathroom. I wish they had a sit down restaurant of their own. Although they are close to restaurants on the street.
Decor, location, cleanliness $16.00 for wifi
Convenient location to everything we were doing and the Molton Brown products are terrific! It's a luxurious hotel and a lovely interlude from the chaos of Manhattan. We asked for some champagne flutes and the ones we received were delivered dirty. We called and asked for replacements and it took well over an hour to receive them - at that point we had washed the flutes ourselves in the bathroom sink.
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
Location was great Elevators were impossible. Had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for an elevator to reach the 10th floor, every single time we used them. Actually opted to take the stairs a few times to save time. Toilet in the room ran for almost 5 minutes after every flush. We were locked out of our room at 1130am, 30 minutes prior to checkout time. The "breakfast bar" in the hotel lobby had nothing but coffee and 2 bananas left at 10am, with no other options provided. We did not get a receipt at checkout, either, nor was one emailed to us. And lastly, we waited for almost 30 minutes for our car to be brought around at checkout because the driver was waiting for the doorman to call him to come around (which he did as soon as we came outside).
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
Nothing Up all night with bad radiator. Phones did not work or they did not pick up. Rooms are old and dated. Elevator takes forever. $52 for a basic continental breakfast. Go to a diner
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
The bed was very comfortable. Yes I was just surprised by the sheer number of things wrong. As we walked in we both thought. This is beautiful. As we checked in I was told I booked a king bed and I stated I booked a double. I showed the woman ( name omitted) my reservation and she said that a double room just means two people. Fine fine my mistake, I moved on. When we got to the room the heater was making a noise that sounded like an animal was in it. The shower frame was not attached to the wall, the shower door had no way to pull it closed from the inside, the shelf in the bathroom was slanted downward, as was the top of the toilet tank so nothing staying on it. I am a normal sized woman and I was I a difficult time getting dressed in the bathroom due to size. Check out is st noon as in many hotels, at 9 there was a knock on the door. When I answered it the cleaning staff was there and asked when I was checking out. I told them 12. At 1049 there was a knock again, the same staff member asked when I was leaving. Now you may say did you say anything... I tried. I tried calling twice ( was only there one night) no answer and wentdownstairs countless times, but as I was on a quick fun trip I didn't want to waste time. I was just surprising disappointed my my stay and it was compounded when I checked out and then checked into my next hotel, that for only 30 $ more, I not only had the amenities of a " normal room, I was actually given a premier room with a view, corner ceiling to floor windows, A kitchenette, complimentary unlimited filtered water, complimentary breakfast and a staff that was above and beyond. All of this just a few minutes from the roisevelt.
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
Good location, nice lobby, Good complimentary toiletries Bathroom small, outdated, with no space to lay personal stuff. Floor seemed to be dirty. Carpet very dusty on the edges, corners and behind the bed. It looks like the housekeeper doesn't have a canister vacuum to reach those places. Bad smell coming from moldy air conditioner. Front desk didn't respond our calls, we ask for a coffee maker to the bell man but they never brought it. We called the bell man for somebody to bring us the kart but they never came. Overall staff is friendly but not efficient.
The location for the cost is imcomparable. I will definitely put this on the list next time. Front desk and bar staff were not service oriented. Bar prices are... well... it's NYC.
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
Location Overall atmosphere less than satisfactory
Overall staff was friendly.....BUT Our beds were very firm, and our maid did a lousy job cleaning our room. She left a dirty wash cloth on our bathroom floor for two days! We did not receive our requested newspaper at our door, and the staff would not give us a paper because there were no extras. The Internet charges were ridiculous!
Location, rooms, restaurant, and 54th Floor Lounge were very nice Everything... we will be back.
Very clean rooms, updated rooms, great service, great location.
The location was great. So close to Time Square and in the middle of 2 great Irish Pubs. Only that we could not stay longer.
Location was great A bit noisy Some of the staff( not all) had attitude. I noticed they were attentive to some people better than others.
The view of the city and comfortable bed
Had a wonderful stay. The staff was very attentive and always seeking ways to make our stay better. The location to shows was the best with a theater right next door and the 54th floor bar was a perfect after theater hang out for drinks and snacks. It was also steps away from the subway to go in any direction. We did not have to step foot in a "smelly" new york taxi all weekend not to say the subway was a bouquet.....just kidding on the smell.
Very Clean, Very Modern. Loved it!
Location and cleaniness the other guests where a bit rude
The location was perfect for theatre and shopping and catching the subway. The room was a little small. We had two twin beds and really not much of a view. Concierge (one of 3) was not particularly helpful. Very minimal Christmas decorations in lobby, other hotels much more festive.
The staff excellent, location perfect comfort first class. Tea & coffee making facilities should be available in the room.
Great location, clean room, staff was very accomodating
The location is PERFECT! Its close to everything yet away from noise and traffic! 5th ave is half a bloch away and time square is a bloch and a half. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. the staff is extreamly warm and accomodating. It is the hotel to stay on if your looking for luxury yet the comfort and warth of your home!
Friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Comfortable bed and nice room. Check-in process was a nightmare. It took more than one hour until my reservation was finally found and confirmed.
The location Not the standart I expected, room to small, air conditioning to noise.
Great location, excellent staff combined with a good restaurant and good decor Wifi Should be free
The room was overall inviting and the bed and pillows especially comfortable. Having to pay an extra fee for internet access, it should be a part of the cost of the room.
The room was large for new york and very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding!! It includes juice, coffee and a basket of bread and pastries. The best pancakes are at Sofitel. It is a short walk to the theatre. No complaints, I will definitely go back to Sofitel
This was our first trip to nyc and chose Sofitel by recommendation as well as location and reputation. It was within walking distance to many attractions as well as excellent places to eat. We felt safe yet away from the main hustle and bustle. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was top class. Thankyou!
staff is very kind it is for sure no 5 star hotel. Spa area is nice but 5 chairs at the pool are by far too less for such hotel. Dinner and breakfast was also not 5 star.
Location was fantastic. Close to the action but extremely quiet once you get inside. The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel lacked a few of the services you typically expect, such as room service, on-site gym and laundry service (although dry cleaning service is available), but this is not a major problem and is justified by the lower room rates compared to the bigger hotels in this area. Would definitely stay here again!
Good Location room too small
Location is good, staff very helpfull. Small size of bedrom and view hotel in construcion.
The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. Perfect location and very clean and nice rooms...
The staff is extremely friendly, helpful. They always have a smile – a real, genuine one - on their face. Especially Eric who is concierge of the cassa goes out of his way to make sure you have anything you may need. The beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are nice and quiet – surprising for midtown Manhattan.No need to search anather otel in Times square.
The bed was horrible...not enough blankets either.
The staff were very informative,friendly,and accommodating. The location was amazing!
LOVED the purified water on our floor. Also, the Guest Closet on our floor was nice. Had extra coffee and an iron. Loved the look and the value.
Location and price
Location was awesome, steps away from Rockefeller center. Quiet at night. Staff were lovely. Furniture was a bit worn. Beds were not full size.
Convenient location and reasonable pricing make this a good choice for a NYC weekend. The room was modern with all the needed items. Not really a negative but do note there is no lobby here, just a couple terminals to check in and one person to help you. So not a full service hotel but it was ok with us. Breakfast was typical american buffet for about average NY prices. We generally don't spend a lot of time in the room while in NY so this was good.
the location is very good. 1) i have told the hotel that i would be paying for my stay on cash, and was told that i should do so upon check-out; yet the hotel proceeded to debit my credit card before the check-out time; 2) the car park is too blocks away. If one has luggages, the car-park is too far. 3) we arrive at the hotel earlier than 3 pm cos my flight arrived at 11 am. Despite there being vacant rooms, the hotel refused to assign us the room. Upon our return at 3.30 pm, we had to wait 45 minutes for the room allocation.
loved the location, close proximity to the subway, free cold filtered water & water bottles, & the staff was great! This was a great hotel.
For a solo, environmentally-conscious traveler, it was fun to experience what it's like to live in 250sqft of room. Everything in the room was well-designed to fit all the conveniences of modern life into perfectly organized, perfectly sized furnitures and fixtures. The tiling, furniture, and appliances all felt modern and fresh. My only 2 negative experiences during my stay were the thin walls and not-so-comfortable mattress. In all fairness, I sleep on a premium mattress at home, so the bar was quite high. But mattress aside, I wish there was more sound-proofing on the walls - particularly exterior walls and windows. The NYC night-time jack-hammers kept me up until 3am. Even my White Noise app on my phone couldn't drown it out. If you stay here, bring earplugs
We loved the location. Bed was a little hard for my husband, but I was comfortable
Location, friendly staff, room comfort. While the room initially seems small, it soon becomes much larger because it is so compact and carefully thought out. I marvelled at the eye pleasing decor and efficient design. It has the feel of a small European hotel. There's no wasted space in the room or in the lobby. The check in /out front desk measures 3 x 5 feet at most. Amazing! I liked everything about the place.
Location My reservation was cancelled. The staff did not pass me the messages that were left at the reception. renovation with constant noise. Very small rooms, even for ny. Was charged for full day because of late check out
We arrived early and our room was ready. We were able to check into our room early which was very much appreciated after traveling all night on the red eye. The staff was friendly, attentive and the hotel was charming and very clean. Great location to everything. We really enjoyed the Lantern's Keep downstairs.
It was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service - from doorman to housekeeping to room service,, conveniently located, cozy lobby and library - in short - a gem of a hotel. Will definitely return!! Absolutely no complaints!
Accomodations and staff were wonderful. Location is convenient and in an extremely staff area.
Convenient mid town location. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Wifi service. Pleasant and helpful staff. Tiny room with small window looking directly into a brick wall 6 feet away! The room temp was 76 degrees and COULD NOT BE REGULATED. The maintenance engineer came to the room and confirmed the high temp but said there was no way to reduce the high dry heat.
staff was outstanding comfortable room, if small great location older building with slow elevators :) small room (but it is Manhattan!)
Cosy and comfortable The ventilation in the toilet is noisy.
Location, Location, Location! Great mid-town location, steps away from shops, theaters and landmarks. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room although very small bathroom. Great restaurant! Small bathroom.
Conveniently located,comfortable,pleasant stuff.
Delightful. Very kind staff, lovely room. Very good value at just over $200 Room seemed a bit humid
Our stay at the Iroquois New York was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we arrived, we received excellent service from all the staff. The room was very clean and well appointed. The location was perfect. Vanessa, the concierge, was absolutely amazing; not only did she provide excellent recommendations for restaurants and attractions, but she went the extra mile in assisting us with obtaining a metro card for the subway. We will certainly recommend the Iroquois to our friends and plan to stay here again for our next visit to New York!
The staff was absolutely amazing. Especially Rocky and Jenny. They were friendly and helpful and always with a smile. The rooms are kept well and are comfortable. The hotel is centrally located so most activities are in walking distance. I will stay there again when I go back in a few months. Everything was great!
Location was excellent. I thought my room was way too small. I was in one of the 02 rooms and it was tiny. never stay in any of the rooms that end with 02. There was a gentleman in the library when I was there speaking on the cell phone complaining that his closet at home was bigger than his room. I asked to change out of my room and they said they were sold out. I will never stay at this hotel again unless I am shown the size of the room first. Otherwise, it was clean, good location and good staff.
Staff very friendly. good location. Bed was very uncomfortable
Fantastic staff that went above and beyond to meet our needs. Turn town service was nice (cookies in the room!). The room was very small, but functional. There was a party going on down the hall that was very loud due to the thin walls. Took 2 hours from the first threat to kick the people out at 3am.
Deluxe digs for modest dimes
When I arrived, I was given a free upgrade to a queen size room. I was prepared, given the other reviews, for a pretty small room, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was more than enough room for just myself, and the bathroom was spacious as well. I also really liked the toiletries (they smelled so good!) and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Turning the shower to "high pressure" resulted in a very wet bathroom floor. I hadn't expected the lip between the shower and the bathroom to be so low! Additionally, I left my bag at the front desk the day I checked out, and I guess someone else's bag leaked something on mine? Or it's stored in the same space as they keep extra toiletries. The stain it left smelled a lot like the toiletries they give out. Unfortunately, I didn't notice it until I got home.
Super helpful staff Rooms not really set for business -- few plugs, no coffeemaker
Great room. Great location. Clean and comfortable. No water the next morning with no credits or discounts offered.
Clean, quiet, friendly, accessible to subways and attractions.
On line it said bathrobes but there are none.
Large comfortable room quiet great bathroom and shower great shutters
Only 1 window in room and it opened to a brick wall. Unable to see daylight. Room was like staying in. Large closet.
It was fine... Nothing I would say it was a 4 star. Staff was very friendly and courteous. The cookie at night was good! Room was TINY! Barely enough room for the bed.... And it was only a full bed. Everything was old. Wallpaper was dis colored and peeling, bathroom tile had the corners that looked dirty but were just so old the tiles were worn. The bed was more of a futon than a real mattress.
The staff at the front desk and the doormen are so helpful!!
Great location and very nice staff in all departments. The rooms were a bit worn and the separation of the bathroom was only with a curtain.
The room was very nice and clean. The location was excellent. The rooftop bar was really cool too. The staff was extremely friendly. I guess if I had to complain about anything it would just be the size of the room, it was very small. But I know that it is typical for many NYC hotels.
Location is amazing. Dinner at Tender restaurant was very good. Staff was helpful and very nice. Room was facing street and was very noisy. Pictures of room looked spacious. In reality, room was basically a king sized bed! Bathroom was literally part of the room with no separation. Seemed a high price for a very small room.
fantastic service, great staff, good location smallish rooms, lack of closet space
Great front desk, bellman and concierge staff. Nice breakfast. Room wasn't ready per check in time.
Staff was wonderful, interior was beautiful, rooms where very comfortable, entire experience made for quite a romantic stay. Rooftop bar wasn't as great as I'd hoped. The design was trendy, but the clientele was decidedly not. Fortunately, the hotel is in a great area with plenty else to do nearby.
Great location, 1/2 block from Times Square TKTS, and walking distance from Grand Central. Classy hotel, lobby and room furnishings, it was great for a long weekend for the two of us. After Kayak gave us an opportunity to request a superior view, we got a 9th floor room. In that room space around the bed was small, as was closet space also, and only one chair.
Location. First night we stayed in a room facing the street, and couldn't sleep because of the continous thudding noise (caused by the vehicles going over the steel plates covering the construction work). They offered us another room (and 10% discount for the whole stay a gesture we appreciated). The new room was quiet, and we had a good rest. At the checkout, I realized that the discount was applied to 3 nights instead of 4 (I am sure it was an honest mistake). I tried to explain the situation to the clerk, but she acted indifferently, and I didn't have the time/energy to escalate it. Otherwise the staff are very professional and helpful.
The bed was fantastic and the room big for NY standards.Bathroom was good and because we were one of the first all was very cleanLocation good just around the corner of 5th anvenue 46 street. When we came it was just opened and some starter problems, handshower didn't work rooftop not open yet, but I'm sure it all will be fiixed and perfect in no time,would book it again for the rate I got.....hope it wasn't a beginners rate
Balconies Hot water wasn't working, apparently in most of the building, just my luck
The best beds!
Nice Astrosphere.. Close to the theater district.. Room was Pose. Like the fact they held our bags while we roamed the museums after we checked out. Wish it had two chairs in the room, the bed was too soft and to low hurt our backs getting in and out of it. Wished we could get more than an continental breakfast from the hotels' restaurant.
Clean rooms, basic but of a good standard. Nice having a balcony albeit with no view to speak of. No real bar in hotel. No twin bedded rooms but very large bed.
Staff were courteous, helpful and polite. Really enjoyed coming back to the hotel to a Glass of wine- nice touch! The Hotel is almost ready to receive guests! Bulb missing in bed side light 201. bad batteries in most of the smoke detectors, and plumming making tapping noises in the evening. The staff was very kind, prompt and courteous in dealing with the problems.
the design of the hotel and rooms and its location THe shower ran cold for about 10 minutes. Also it was plumed wrong. the hot markings were freezing and the cold one was hot.
Location is very convenient Bed was not confortable, toiletries and towels not replaced accordingly.
Have stayed before year ago - it was lovely: Private Terrace on front Front desk clerk Dirty carpet and bathroom Loud loud air conditioner Terrace useless due noise of airconditioners Lumpy uncomfortable bed
