Launching sales this March, Waldorf Astoria’s hotel and residences have already left their mark on Miami’s pre-construction market. The 100-story condo-hotel will not only be the tallest building in Miami, but also the tallest building in Florida, and one of the most iconic buildings to be added to the city’s skyline in recent times. Along with eminent design features, this luxury Supertall is set to bring a brand-new world of allure to the Magic City. However, before diving into the kind of amenities future guests and residents can expect to enjoy at this condo-hotel, let’s take a look at the Waldorf Astoria brand and its storied history.
About the Brand - Waldorf Astoria
Waldorf Astoria - New York City, NY
Waldorf Astoria is Hilton’s premium brand of luxury hotels and resorts. Representing the highest standards of facilities and services offered by Hilton Worldwide, this is the hospitality giant’s flagship brand, previously known as The Waldor=Astoria Collection.
The story of Waldorf Astoria dates back to 1893, when William Waldorf Astor opened a 13-story hotel at 5th Avenue and 33rd Street in New York City, calling it the Waldorf. His cousin, John Jacob Astor IV, opened a 17-story hotel next door just four years later, calling it the Astoria. Ending their family feud a few years down the line, they decided to connect the two hotels with a corridor forming the Waldorf=Astoria, where the “equal” sign represented the bridge. This original hotel was finally torn down to make way for the Empire State Building, and the famous Park and Lexington Avenue property we all know today opened doors in 1931.
Fast forward a century or so, this luxury chain of hotels operates in 30 iconic properties across the globe and is known for its signature services, innovation, and creating a unique sense of space. Going with the motto of “Live Unforgettably,” you will find a Waldorf Astoria in New York, Chicago, Florida, California, Hawaii, the UAE, Italy, France, Scotland, Germany, China, Maldives, Egypt and the Netherlands, with another 20 odd properties in the pipeline.
