"The interior is a showcase for contemporary design; standard “salons” (rooms) have been beautifully furnished with ornate carpets, hand-crafted wardrobes and funky, modern desks."
Michelin Guide
"The Surrey's location may be knee deep in the old-monied world of the Upper East Side, but its quietly elegant flair is as new as a spring lamb."
Frommer's

Rough Guide
"One of the city’s first grand hotels, the Waldorf has been restored to its 1930s glory and is a wonderful place to stay."
Michelin Guide
"As much a part of New York culture as hot dog vendors and the Statue of Liberty, no other hotel has captured the imagination of filmmakers, composers, and authors quite like the Waldorf."
Frommer's
"If you are looking for the epitome of old-school elegance, stop at the Waldorf Astoria." Full review
Fodor's
"We'd recommend having a cocktail at the classic Bull and Bear Bar downstairs rather than spending the night in one of the small standard rooms, which top out at a tight 250 square feet." Full review
Insight Guides
"The years have taken away some of that Waldorf charm, but plenty of flourish prevails, and the Park Avenue address is very grand indeed."
