New York’s luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel has no shortage of bragging rights. It’s hosted kings and queens, Hollywood royalty, Fidel Castro, and every U.S. president since Herbert Hoover. Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor all made it their temporary home. Then there’s the legendary world-class customer service, today due in no small part to the hotel’s chef concierge of 22 years, Michael Romei.
