Its famous residents ~ General and Mrs. Douglas MacArthur, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and Cole Porter ~ form only a part of the glittering procession of celebrities who make the Waldorf their New York headquarters. Great speeches have been delivered in its Grand Ballroom, and its corridors and suites have borne witness to what probably are the most fascinating private conversations of our time. Without ever stepping out into the daylight, a visitor to the Waldorf can send a cable to Bombay; buy a steamship ticket on the Queen Mary; undergo surgery; buy a complete wardrobe of clothes, male or female; eat a plover's egg or a ham sandwich; spend $66 on a single bottle of champagne; buy a coat of silver~blue mink for $14,000; have a tooth extracted; step into a private limousine or railroad car; have a chair upholstered; buy a sapphireand~diamond necklace for $43,000; eat dinner in the same room with 1,999 other people. Statisticians have discovered that the Waldorf's telephone system could service a city the size of Miami Beach; it uses the same kind of motion picture equipment as the Radio City Music Hall; its private police department is equivalent to that of most major suburbs; the hotel uses enough steam every year to have kept an average~sized house warm from the time of the Crusades to the present. Further, if all the trips of all the hotel's elevators in a year were strung end to end, they would reach from 50th Street and Park Avenue to the moon and part~way back! But CONFESSIONS OF A GRAND HOTEL is more than a lively book filled with anecdotes. It is also the nostalgic story of the old Waldorf~Astoria which stood on the present site of the Empire State Building, and of the people who built, lived in, and were entertained in it. The Waldorf has always been the undeniable unofficial palace of New York, and to it come the shahs, rajahs, and poohbahs of the world. They're all in CONFESSIONS OF A GRAND HOTEL.
