Waldorf: The Waldorf is an old hotel and an icon of New York City, but with that title comes the risk of becoming a little outdated. At 200-225 square feet, the standard room at the Waldorf is almost half the size of one at The Ritz-Carlton, and doesn't really make up for it with much. It looks less like a comfortable place to crash and more like a museum.
Ritz-Carlton: The rooms at the Ritz deliver the quality you would expect from the Ritz-Carlton name, but nothing about them really stands out. The extravagant marble bathrooms are the highlight -- it's too bad designers didn't put as much thought into the actual sleeping space! At least the beds are luxurious, with Frette linens, down featherbeds, and comforters. And the rooms start at 425 square feet, so there's plenty of space to stretch out after a long day at the ballpark.
