If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

How does it work with Shabbos in the Waldorf? Do I have to reserve the Shabbat meals or I just walk into the dining room.

What does that mean? If the hechser is Rabbanut then so is all prepared food.

The bread and cheese both come from outside vendors, as does the prepared fish. I have no idea about the meat, though.

Any and all food prepared in the Waldorf kitchen has the status of Rabbanut.

That's technically true, but people who may not use Rabbanut may still eat outsourced foods.

Mashgiach said all food in the hotel is under mehadrin/badatz/C"Y hechsheirim.

He asked a question and I answered.
The hotel seems to only source Mehadrin and above products but once its out of the wrapper its a moot point.

That's what I figured too, but once I spoke to reliable people about the situation and the mashgiach there I was comfortable enough to eat there.
Not saying it's for everyone, but people should do their own research.

Any idea if the waj would store my luggage for me for a night if for example I was booked there Monday night and then Wed-Sun night?
ETA: I know I could just call and ask but asking here is easier
