Excerpt from Curbed
It’s the end of an era for one of New York’s most iconic hotels, The Waldorf Astoria. The final checkout date to stay in one of its fabled rooms prior to the hotel's renovation has been set for March 1st, reports Crain’s. The hotel also will not be accepting reservations past February 28th.
This doesn’t come as a big surprise - Chinese company Anbang purchased the building for $1.95 billion in 2014 with vague plans to renovate it, then announced plans for a condo conversion earlier this summer. Their $1 billion project will convert 1,100 rooms (out of 1,413 total) into condo units.
