To Book the Waldorf Presidential Suite, You’ll Need a Background Check


Just in case you were planning to book the Waldorf Astoria Presidential Suite for your crazy Presidents’ Day party — think again! “The suite is not available through normal booking channels,” Matt Zolbe, the Waldorf director of sales and marketing, tells the Daily News. “We want to know a little about you first.” In other words, they don’t want you to walk off with JFK’s rocking chair or Nixon’s wall sconces or do anything unseemly on Eisenhower’s desk. “There’s just so much in that suite,” says Zolbe. Also, it’s $10,000 a night. [NYDN]
