The developers took a long term view from the beginning. It may take longer than expected because of the economy but this is still a prime site for condos/hotel.
Yeah I know, what makes you think that would change what I said.

He would only own me. If he would have said Waldorf Astoria wasn't started in NYC, now You've been owned.

Plus there is only one Waldorf Astoria seeing the Astor brothers only open one Hotel together. The Hilton aren't the Astor so their Hotel hold no weight bearing its name.

Alright guys,

Let me put an end to this dispute...I work for Hilton Hotels in Beverly Hills.

There are 3 layers to the Waldorf=Astoria...

There is THE Waldorf=Astoria, which is in NYC and is of course deservedly famous for being an amazing hotel.

Then, there is the Waldorf=Astoria Collection - termed as such for Hilton properties that are one of a kind, and iconic properties. These properties are not named WALDORF=ASTORIA but rather the unique name, and part of the collection. The collection includes the La Quinta Resort and Spa near Palm Springs, CA; the Biltmore in Arizona, the Casa Marina in Key West FL and a bunch of others. From the site - KNOWN FOR ITS CHARACTER, TIMELESS ARCHITECTURE AND AUTHENTIC HISTORY, THE WALDORF ASTORIA COLLECTION IS COMPRISED OF UNIQUE LUXURY HOTELS WHICH POSSESS THEIR OWN DISTINCT PERSONALITY WHILE OFFERING THE AMENITIES AND SERVICES YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY HOTELS IN THE WORLD.

THEN, for some god awful reason, Hilton is taking advantage of the Waldorf Astoria brand. In my opinion this goes against the Collection statement of unique one of a kind properties, rendering the collection namesake unfit for the title. Why it isn't rebranded is beyond me.

The Waldorf=Astoria Brand, that you see in this proposal, a new one coming to Beverly Hills, and others already made or in the pipeline are apart of this brand. It'd be like the Ritz Carlton, same style and brand standards, but different locales.

So yeah, there ya go.
