I’m really rather fond of grand old hotels. Occasionally I’m lucky enough to stay in one; one of the perks of being a Professor. So this evening I find myself in the Waldorf=Astoria, perhaps the most famous of New York’s grand old hotels. Mostly it’s rather wonderful art deco, but with a few remnants of the old 1890s Waldorf=Astoria mixed in such as the clock in the lobby. I hope you like this as much as I do!
