The Waldorf Astoria also holds its own when it comes to fine dining - two very well-known dishes, the popular Waldorf salad as well as Eggs Benedict, were invented in the Waldorf's kitchen. Weary travelers can book a treatment at the Guerlain Spa - imbibing in the Pure & Radiant Back Treatment or the Scalp Massage and Reflexology sessions - while shoppers are amply catered for at the boutiques surrounding the lobby.
