Third Floor

Discover five stunning venues, perfect for a variety of events and meetings on the third floor of the Waldorf Astoria New York. From the four-storey grand ballroom to the dramatic Basildon Room, with its spectacular paneling and frescoed ceiling, or the intimate and elegant Jade Room.


Five rooms complement the Grand Ballroom. All venues on the third floor flow from the ornate Silver Corridor, ensuring easy access for meeting registration and for networking during session breaks. Guests arrive via the large Ballroom Elevators with cast nickel doors. Coat check is available on the 2nd floor.


Soaring four stories high, it is the only two-tiered ballroom in New York City. A magnificent setting, where every occasion achieves greatness. The Grand Ballroom accommodates as many as 1,500 guests for dinner and 1,100 with dancing. It features a 44 foot high ceiling, a custom made chandelier 16 feet in diameter, state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems and a full-blown professional stage which can handle a Broadway show or Symphonic Orchestra. The East Foyer makes the perfect transition between the Silver Corridor and the Grand Ballroom for Cocktail Reception preceding a ballroom event or for exhibitors.


Setting the standard of either social or business protocols, the John Jacob Astor Salon allows you to entertain over 400 reception guests or makes an equally impressive setting for exhibits, conferences or classroom-type events.


Historic. Dramatic. With spectacular paneling and a frescoed ceiling taken from the British estate, Basildon Hall, and beautifully offset by a Parisian marble fireplace.


The Jade Room presents an unequalled setting for any occasion from a black-tie banquet for 260 to a small trade show. This magnificent backdrop provides 3,626 square feet in which to celebrate, all crowned by a soaring 18-foot (5.5 meter) ceiling.
