Waldorf Astoria NYC Renovation Gets Underway
The $5 billion renovation of Manhattan's iconic Waldorf Astoria hotel has begun.

For meeting groups, the new and improved Waldorf will still provide 400+ luxury rooms and many amenities that are critical for destination meeting planner. Every U.S. President since 1932, except for the current one, has stayed at the Waldorf in New York, and Shackman Associates New York has operated countless events and galas at the iconic property through the years.
