So let me preface my comments by clarifying that staying at the Waldorf Astoria is an experience just as much as it is a place to stay for the night. It really is an exquisite hotel with so much character and old charm that we don't see in most hotels today. There's a personal touch to most everything and the Sunday brunch is not to be missed!
With that said, we were visiting friends downtown and decided to stay at the Waldorf not really putting much thought into staying as a family with 3 kiddos. We took a suite to be sure we had enough space, although significantly more expensive, it was worth it.
What struck me though and was a bit off-putting was how unfriendly folks were to children- my girls are well behaved and polite by all means but they are children! There should be a sign up that says, "FOR FUNSUCKERS ONLY!" or "NO FUN ALLOWED ON PREMISES!". Okay, but I'm not exaggerating! It was really that bad.
So, overall a very different experience as a couple verses as a family. Important for folks to know and consider! :)More
