Most Famous Hotel in New York City: Waldorf-Astoria

The Waldorf-Astoria is huge - and has a ballroom-sized lobby. It's an easy walk to Rockefeller Center to see NBC's Today Show, get a few pics with the flags, and then walk over to 5th Ave to shop. There are a few cozy eateries near the Ritz-Carlton and the south part of Central Park. It's also a short walk to the East River for a quick morning walk.

The hotel does have irons/ironing boards and refrigerators in the rooms. But unless you're in a suite, there isn't any bathroom counter space - just a small sink/plastic box on top of the toilet, and a bathroom medicine cabinet. It gets a bit confusing with the two East/West elevator banks, and then the separate bank for the Waldorf Towers. Lexington Ave. has more places to eat - basic sandwiches start at $6-9. A quick meal is McDonald's to get their $1.39 wrap.

If you take the 6 subway to Grand Central Station, you can look for the red signs for the Shuttle train to Times Square. It all takes $2 and around 15 minutes.
