astoria hotel rates - Waldorf-Astoria
This is a celebrity biography about a great hotel -- in fact, for millions of people across the land and countless more around the world, it is America's most famous hotel. Now approaching its seventy-fifth anniversary in 2006 on its Park Avenue site, The Waldorf-Astoria has been home to kings, magnates, presidents and many of the greatest cultural talents of the Twentieth Century. General Douglas MacArthur chose to retire in the Waldorf Towers; Cole Porter lived in suite 33A for many years, which Frank Sinatra paid one million dollars a year to live in after Porter died. "The grand cities of the world have their grand hotels, the bed-and-breakfasts for the mighty and the moneyed. Ward Morehouse III explores one of New York City's grandest in The Waldorf-Asrtoria: America's Gilded Dream ... Morehouse writes of pleasures and scandals, of the hard facts of running a hotel and of its romance. The hotel comes off well in the hands of its appreciative Boswell and one will find "The Waldorf-Astoria" to be a pleasant buffet." - The New York Times, Sunday Book Review Section
Astor House Hotel - Shanghai - 1916
Cnr Broadway & Soochow Rd, Shanghai A foreigners' hotel has occupied this site since 1858. Once the most renowned and most luxurious hotel in Shanghai, the Astor House Hotel sits across the Soochow Creek to the north of the famous Bund. It was home of the first telephone and first electric lights in China. Architects: Messrs Atkinson & Dallas. In 1907, it was significantly refitted and extended by architects Davies & Thomas and its adverts in 1907 ran with the claim that it was the "Waldorf Astoria of the Orient":- "Largest, Best and Most Modern Hotel in the Far East. Main Dining Room Seats 500 Guests, and is Electrically Cooled. Two hundred Bedrooms with Hot and Cold Baths Attached to Each Room. Cuisine Unexcelled; Service and Attention Perfect; Lounge, Smoking and Reading Rooms; Barber and Photographer on the Premises. Rates from $6; Special Monthly Terms." The Astor House continues today as the Pujijiang Hotel and provides great value accommodation close to the Bund; its huge rooms and period furniture provide an authentic 1920s feel, rather than the more artificial 'boutique' hotels and modern chains.
The Waldorf=Astoria Hotel /3
(From Wikipedia): The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel has been housed in two historic landmark buildings of New York City. The first, designed by architect Henry J. Hardenbergh, was on the Fifth Avenue site of the Empire State Building. The present building at 301 Park Avenue in Manhattan is a 47-story, 625 ft. (191 m) Art Deco landmark designed by architects Schultz and Weaver that dates from 1931 and is now part of the The Waldorf-Astoria Collection. The name, Waldorf=Astoria, now appears with a double hyphen, but originally the single hyphen was employed, as recalled by a popular expression and song, "Meet Me at the Hyphen." The modern hotel has three American and classic European restaurants, and a beauty parlor located off the main lobby. Several luxurious boutiques surround the distinctive lobby, which has won awards for its restoration to the original period character. An even more luxurious, virtual "hotel within a hotel" in its upper section is known as The Waldorf Towers operated by Conrad Hotels & Resorts.

In this marvelous anecdotal history, Justin Kaplan—Pulitzer Prize–winning biographer of Mark Twain—vividly brings to life a glittering, bygone age.
Endowed with the largest private fortunes of their day, cousins John Jacob Astor IV and William Waldorf Astor vied for primacy in New York society, producing the grandest hotels ever seen in a marriage of ostentation and efficiency that transformed American social behavior.
Kaplan exposes it all in exquisite detail, taking readers from the 1890s to the Roaring Twenties in a combination of biography, history, architectural appreciation, and pure reading pleasure.
