If you were thinking about spending a night at the Waldorf Astoria, book fast.
The iconic Manhattan hotel will stop taking reservations after Feb. 28, 2017, according to a spokesman. Last month, the landmarked building’s owner, the China-based Anbang Insurance Group, announced it would convert 1,000 of the rooms into luxury apartments.
A spokesman for the hotel said renovations would take place sometime in the spring, but didn’t have more immediate details.
“We have not finalized any plans in terms of the scope, nature and details of the renovation project or the exact timing and duration of the hotel’s closure,” the spokesman said in a statement.
The final booking date was first reported by Crain’s New York Business.
The hotel has been a Park Avenue staple since it opened 85 years ago and has had many famous guests including Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra and every U.S. president since Herbert Hoover.
