History of the Waldorf Astoria
Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts is one of Hilton's iconic hotel brands. Its history began back in 1893 in New York with the only hotel popularly nicknamed "The Greatest of All". But it was not he who glorified the Astor clan, but two hotels in the city center, built by the great-grandchildren of the founder of the dynasty. The first built a hotel and named it "Waldorf" - in honor of his great-grandfather's hometown. He became so popular that his brother built his hotel, Astoria, wall to wall. Later, both buildings were connected by a corridor and the hotel was named "Waldorf-Astoria". And years later, another nickname was assigned to it - "the presidential hotel", because from the day of its opening, every president of the United States stayed in Waldorf-Astoria. But it is not for this building that it is called "the greatest of all the giants", but the brand has received worldwide recognition.
Room service is what has revolutionized the hotel industry. What we are accustomed to today (maids and daily cleaning of rooms) was a breakthrough and innovation of the Astors. Unprecedented service - this is what the Waldorf Astoria Hotels were noted for at the beginning of the last century. It is the service that distinguishes each erected building belonging to the chain, and the Waldorf Astoria Miami has taken its special place in the list of the brand's achievements.

And this tandem managed to build a truly revolutionary residential skyscraper! The building resembles a pyramid of cubes, unevenly stacked on top of each other, and as if balancing on an invisible core-base. At 1,049 feet and 100 stories tall, this building is Miami's tallest tower and first ultra-tall skyscraper. Outstanding parameters, isn't it?
