The hotel's Astor Club Restaurant and Lounge offers Cuban cuisine in an old-world Cuban atmosphere. On weekends, live musicians inspire salsa and meringue dancing after sundown. This property was renovated in May 2008.
The nautical Deco-style guestrooms, with their faux portholes, custom-designed furniture, and frosted glass, will convince occupants they're bedding down in ocean-liner staterooms. Plush beds are made with French duvets. Decorated in soothing shades of taupe with coir- style carpets, junior suites feature courtyards or city views and massive marble bathrooms with large bathtubs. The suites also include fully stocked minibars, twin sofa beds, bathrobes, data ports, safes and high-speed Internet service. Superior Rooms feature queen-sized beds and large marble bathrooms with oversized tubs and showers and brushed chrome fixtures. In addition, all rooms feature wireless Internet access (included in resort fee), cable TVs with premium channels, stereo systems with CD players, dimmer lights, and nightly turndown with complimentary chocolates.
Streamlined all-white sofas and chairs, Art Deco architectural features and a huge vintage Vornado fan by the front door give the lobby of the Hotel Astor the look of an old movie set. The place is hugely popular with models, photographers, celebrities, and fashion types.
