AAA Inspector Notes
A New York landmark since 1904, this extraordinary property offers style at a grand level. When combined with contemporary luxury and attentive services, it is in a rarefied, supreme class altogether. This historic hotel was built by John Jacob Astor IV as a sister property to the Waldorf Astoria, just a few years before Astor went down with the Titanic. Today, guests can enjoy unlimited use of the private on-site health club and the sublime King Cole Bar is pure New York classic. Prime Fifth Avenue shopping is a few steps around the corner.
