The Waldorf Astoria, New York - In the Know
The Waldorf Astoria is the namesake of the world famous Waldorf Salad – a salad made with apples, walnuts, celery, grapes and mayonnaise, which was created in 1896. Why not try the modern version of the classic that the hotel currently serves?
The hotel has quite a strict dress code in some areas – t-shirts, cut-off trousers, tank tops and casual hats should not be worn in the Main Lobby, Park Avenue Lobby, restaurants or public areas of the hotel.
Most Friday nights at the Waldorf Astoria, Steve Cohen, the 'Millionaires' Magician' entertains audiences in an exclusive show in a suite of the Waldorf Towers. If you’d like to experience the show, it’s prudent to book ahead – and be prepared to be amazed.
If you arrive at the Waldorf Astoria and think the hotel looks familiar – don’t worry! Different parts of the hotel have been featured in films such as Maid in Manhattan, Serendipity and The Pink Panther, as well as TV shows such as Mad Men and True Crime: New York City.
