Waldorf Astoria New York - 301 Park Avenue (near 34th Street)

New York’s legendary Waldorf Astoria hotel has hosted kings, queens, presidents and movie stars – but for the next three years, not even royalty will be able to reserve a room here.

The 86-year-old hotel, bought by China’s Ambang Insurance Group in 2014 for $1.95 billion, closed its doors on February 28, 2017 for a major renovation project that will reportedly see many of its 1,400 rooms turned into apartments.
