Homage to the History

19.06.20

From its inception, the Waldorf Astoria was a true palace in the city. Cultural figures, political leaders, musicians, and royalty gathered in its grand spaces and entertained in its opulent suites. The Waldorf Astoria’s legendary service set the standard for American hospitality.

The original Waldorf Hotel was built at 33rd Street and Fifth Avenue in 1893 by William Waldorf Astor. Four years later, John Jacob Astor IV, William’s cousin and familial rival, built an even taller hotel next door in an act of one-upmanship. The cousins finally agreed to a truce and the two buildings were connected through a 300 foot marble corridor known as Peacock Alley. The Waldorf-Astoria was born.

From Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald, celebrities flocked to New York’s unofficial palace. The Waldorf Astoria hosted legendary events like Prince Rainier III of Monaco and Grace Kelly’s engagement party, President John F. Kennedy’s birthday gala, the April in Paris Ball, and a special address by Queen Elizabeth II. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor made the Waldorf Astoria their home after the Duke abdicated the throne, and the hotel welcomed every U.S. president from Herbert Hoover to Barack Obama.

Inspired by the hotel’s classic grandeur, internationally acclaimed designer Jean-Louis Deniot has created residences that balance modern comfort with Art Deco opulence; blending the old and the new; the European and the American; the grand and the intimate. Each residence celebrates the scale and beauty of the original architecture—a perfect balance of aesthetic and practical considerations—with windows that replicate the building’s original design and flood the rooms with dynamic views of the New York cityscape. Kitchens feature wood and lacquer cabinetry custom-designed by Deniot and fabricated by Italian design house Molteni&C, cleverly concealing top-of-the-line German appliances by Gaggenau. Elegant master bathrooms offer heated floors, rain showers, and custom Italian vanities. Handcrafted finishes, natural materials, and subtle Art Deco references bring a sense of history to these gracious contemporary spaces.

The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria offer over 50,000 square feet of private residential amenities and programming paired with the impeccable services of the world’s most iconic hotel. Designed by the esteemed Jean-Louis Deniot, these private recreation, relaxation, and wellness spaces create the ultimate expression of accommodation and service.

A spectacular 25-meter swimming pool overlooking Park Avenue is at the heart of the extensive residential wellness facility on the 25th floor. Residents also have exclusive access to the private fitness center including spa-like wellness lounges with saunas, steam rooms, treatment rooms, and changing areas; private fitness studios; and a personalized health and fitness program facilitated by the hotel spa.

From the landscaped terrace to verdant Winter Garden and chic Monaco Bar, residents have many places to unwind. They can entertain in the private dining room and kitchen, take in skyline views from the Grand Salon, watch a movie in the Stage & Screen Theater, or play cards in the Monte Carlo Gaming Room.

The Empire Club is a quiet place to work, take conference calls, or host a board meeting. Fully equipped, it exclusively offers condominium residents a casual open workspace, private offices, and meeting rooms for drop-in use or by reservation.
