The bad news is that, yes, the Waldorf-Astoria, which opened during the Depression in 1931, will close next year for a three-year conversion of three-quarters of its rooms into luxury condos--just what NYC needs!--thanks to its owner, Chinese holding company Anbang Insurance Group Co., which purchased the hotel from Hilton's parent group in 2015 for a record $1.95 billion. The rest of the rooms will be upgraded to luxury suites.

What The No Tipping Trend Could Mean For Restaurant Staff And Customers

MoneyTips | Posted 11.06.2016 | Business

When tipping amounts are disconnected from the perceived level of service and do not serve their original purpose, it is time for the practice to end. Wages for restaurant staff should be more predictable and reasonable. Going tip-free makes the experience simpler for all involved.

I knew I'd need to find someplace else that would give me that same wonderful feeling of comfort, satisfaction and pleasure I'd gotten all those years from my usual place.
