Yesterday, I wrote a review of the Waldorf Astoria New York. I had wanted to stay there before they closed the doors for at least 2 years of renovations. Well, Waldorf Astoria closing date is coming up quickly. If you have ever wanted to stay in this historic hotel, you will need to do it soon! Find out about that and what the point opportunities look like.
The Waldorf Astoria Closing Date
So, what is the closing date of the Waldorf Astoria? The Waldorf Astoria closing date is March 1. That means that the final night to stay at the Waldorf Astoria is February 28 – only a little over 2 weeks away.
The estimate is that it will be closed for at least 2 years for renovations. The new owner of the Waldorf Astoria, Anbang Insurance, will be turning a lot of the space into luxury condos so the last chance to stay in the Waldorf Astoria has it stands today will be this month.
Staying at the Waldorf Astoria Before March 1
Staying with Points
It will cost 70,000 Hilton points per night to stay at the Waldorf Astoria and there is availability on every night except February 18. But, staying with all points may not be the best value.
You can actually get a better value by using as little as 60,000 points to stay in an upgraded room!
Staying with Cash and Points
If you choose to stay with cash and points, it will require 28,000 points and $125 (plus tax). There is great availability on most nights for these stays as well.
Staying with Cash
The cheapest nights are February 23 and February 26 for only $185. For most other nights, the cheapest available will be $205 with some nights starting at $215 and February 28 ringing in at $528!
Staying the Last Night at the Waldorf Astoria
While rates start at $528 for a room on February 28, there is also availability for both all points and cash and points. Here are the cheapest options:
- Cash – $528
- Points – 70,000
- Cash and Points – 28,000 and $125
The best value would be the cash and points for sure.
Do not forget about this Amex Offer for Waldorf Astoria stays. It can help to bring the cash amount down a bit if you plan on staying there!
