Wiki

The Waldorf=Astoria is a luxury hotel in New York. It has been housed in two historic landmark buildings in New York City. The first, designed by architect Henry J. Hardenbergh, was on the Fifth Avenue site of the Empire State Building. The present building at 301 Park Avenue in Manhattan is a 47-storey, 190.5 m (625 ft) Art Deco landmark, designed by architects Schultze and Weaver and dating from 1931. The Waldorf Astoria New York is a member of Hilton's Luxury and Lifestyle Brands along with The Waldorf=Astoria Collection and Conrad Hotels & Resorts.

Waldorf=Astoria was the first hotel to serve room service, making a huge impact for the future of the hotel industry. Luxury was the brand they sought after.

The hotel is now branded as the Waldorf=Astoria, with a double hyphen, but originally a single hyphen was employed between "Waldorf" and "Astoria," as recalled by a popular expression and song, "Meet Me at the Hyphen".
