The Waldorf Astoria N.Y. has this week's eye candy for #IGTRAVELThursday

History. Tradition. Iconic. Even a famous salad. All of those words come to mind when I think of The Waldorf Astoria New York City. The famous hotel, rich with history, totally blew me away on Instagram this week. This IG photo, from the annual Viennese Opera Ball, captivated me.

The red roses. The white gowns. The men in white ties. It is tradition and formality at its finest. I could hear the music playing in my head, and then guess what?  The hotel showed a video clip on the IG account. I had trouble embedding it in my post, but you can watch on it on the feed here.  I truly felt like I was there, too.

I loved this shot of the ballroom's chandelier as it was getting cleaned for this long-running, prestigious charity event.

What a beauty. Think of all the people who have danced all night under that chandelier.

For history buffs, you will enjoying learning more about the history of this hotel from its webpage. I love the easy time line, they came up with to show its history. On a quick price check, I found rates hovering around $500 per night currently for a simple room, but for those of you planning summer vacations, it's a good time to get some luxury for less. Rooms were found for less than $300 per night on my search.  That's grand for New York City.
