One of the Golden Ages most prestigious hotels was the Waldorf Astoria. It held galas and balls, was home to the rich and famous, and was the site of historic announcements and events. The exterior and interior of the Waldorf were designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission as official landmarks.
This historic treasure was purchased by a Chinese company for $1.95 billion in 2014, and the hotel was closed for three-years while extensive renovation took place, converting some of the rooms into condos. Now, Galerie Magazine gives us a glimpse inside the renovated Towers.
With several of the Waldorf’s hotel interiors protected, below is a look inside, before the acquisition by Anbang Insurance Group of China.
