    Fabulous 8.8 From 521 reviews

    Good 6.0
    The Waldorf is beautiful. Great location. My recommendation for two people NOT to choose deluxe twin/double. Too tight too small. Suitcases became a horrible challenge. Bathroom was like a postage stamp and there is a warmer rack for warming towels and burn’t myself twice. Just way too small both room and bath. Best for only one person. Otherwise a great hotel.
