The Waldorf-Astoria (probably the flagship of the Hilton hotels -- yeah, betcha didn't know it's owned by Hilton!) is a beautifully restored hotel in the heart of New York City. For its smaller rooms, the prices are not bad, but anything that's executive room or bigger is very expensive. That being said, I was blwon away by one of their suites a few months ago, when I had the opportunity to stay there with my parents. This place had a full dining room and table in it! Absolutely beautiful. And the service at the Waldorf is fantastic. There are also some great restaurants and bars onsite too. So, somewhat pricey but if you can afford it, this is a magnificent place to stay.
