If something unexpected pops up and you need to cancel your reservation at the Waldorf Astoria New York, you will need to be concerned with the cancellation policy. All cancellations need to be made by calling the hotel’s front desk 24 hours prior to your arrival to avoid charges. If you miss the 24-hour mark, you’ll be charged one night’s stay plus additional taxes. Any reservations that are pre-paid are non-refundable, meaning you’ll be out the full cost of your stay. For courtesy’s sake, it’s best to try and let the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel know as soon as possible about any cancellations so the front desk can open up your reserved room to someone else.
