Did You Know?... About the Waldorf Astoria Hotel

The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel originally stood on Fifth Avenue in NYC, built as two separate hotels by the feuding branches of the Astor family, but was eventually combined as a single hotel under the influence of the hotelier George Boldt. In 1931, a new version of the hotel was built on Park Avenue, incorporating more modern design and technology. The Waldorf-Astoria was one of the earliest hotels catering to wealthy travels instead of transients, and led the way for luxury hotels throughout the world.
