I have just completed my first visit to the Waldorf since the change in ownership about a year ago. I had previously stayed here when it was the Mandarin about a dozen times. I was eager to return, but also slightly nervous based on the varying reports found here.
All in all, it was nearly the same positive experience with just a different hotel name hanging on the wall.
We checked in later in the evening (945pm) so we experienced no lines nor did we have to wait for our rooms to be ready. Upon learning my friend and I were traveling together but in different rooms, the front desk made great efforts to secure my friend and I new rooms on the same floor, which was much appreciated.
The rooms appear nearly the same as they were before. Many have mentioned here the extreme wear and tear on the rooms. I didn't notice anything negative with the condition of my room at all that would effect the quality of my stay. A knick here and there yes, but otherwise no issues. My friend had a shower drain issue with her room which was quickly rectified. The bath products are now Salvatore Ferragamo with a very pleasant scent and consistency. (Mandarin's bath products previously were extremely runny. Not the case now).
The best part for me of this stay was seeing all the familiar faces from the Mandarin days in most of the venues. Zen Restaurant for breakfast was full of the wonderful wait staff I had come to know. This goes for most of the Spa and Valet/Bell staff as well and even a few of the Sky Bar wait staff. My experiences in these venues were fantastic.
The pool area also is relatively unchanged at first glance, but the one disappointment of my visit would be found here. We were sat promptly as is the norm, however in the two hours we spent by the pool we were only checked on once by a waiter for drinks etc. Granted, it was almost at capacity, but I expected a bit more than once in two hours. Did this ruin my trip? No not at all, but it is worth noting as an area for improvement.
The hotel now also utilizes text messaging to check in with you about various aspects of your stay. You can also request amenities or concierge advice etc through this medium. I found it to be very convenient and appreciated. Requests were followed up in a timely manner.
Aside from the pool, the service we experienced was the high level we had come to know and love. I know refurbishments to the hotel are coming, but I'm not quite sure when. I would certainly stay here again and very much look forward to seeing what's in store next. I can only hope the same familiar faces will continue to stick around as they are the heart of this property.
