Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts
Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts (formerly, The Waldorf-Astoria Collection) is a Hilton Worldwide luxury hotel and resort brand. It is positioned as the flagship brand within Hilton's portfolio, being used on hotels which offer the highest standards of facilities and service.
In January 2006, Hilton Hotels, Inc, announced it would launch a luxury brand called The Waldorf Astoria Collection, branded after the flagship The Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Some of Hilton's properties carry the "Waldorf" name in their title, but are not part of the actual Waldorf Astoria chain - the The Waldorf Hilton Hotel London in London being a good example.
As of April 2007, there were 4 properties — the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, La Quinta Resort & Spa in La Quinta, California, The Waldorf Astoria in New York and the Grand Wailea Resort & Spa in Wailea, Maui, Hawaii. Later in 2007, the Qasr Al Sharq in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, was added to the portfolio. The next property to join the portfolio was the Rome Cavelieri, a rebranding and upgrading of the Cavalieri in Rome, Italy, in early summer 2008. During the fall of 2008, three Florida hotels, located in Boca Raton, Key West and Naples, were also added. In July 2009, the Dakota Mountain Lodge opened in Park City, Utah; it later dropped the "Dakota Mountain Lodge" title and is now known simply as Waldorf Astoria Park City. It is the first ski resort to join the portfolio. In January 2014, the first Waldorf Astoria opened doors in Dubai, on the Palm Jumeirah. In March 2014 the Waldorf Astoria Beijing opened its doors. May 1, 2014 Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam received its first guests.
