Lady Craw­ley of... RAK?

Friday - - The Leisure Charts -

The su­per-posh and pow­er­ful As­tor fam­ily were be­hind the orig­i­nal Wal­dorf and As­to­ria ho­tels on New York’s Fifth Av­enue,

and the same vein of grand, Down­ton Abbey- style el­e­gance still runs through­out the Hil­ton-owned Wal­dorf As­to­ria chain to­day. Which is why we’re get­ting our em­pire-line dresses and cloche hats at the ready to visit the sparkling new Wal­dorf As­to­ria Ras Al Khaimah, the brand’s first ho­tel in the UAE. Fea­tures such as the Pea­cock Al­ley – in­spired by the walk­way that con­nected the first Wal­dorf and As­to­ria ho­tels in NYC – cre­ate the sort of peo­ple-watch­ing arena that Down­ton’s Lady Mary Craw­ley would fre­quent, while Arabesque de­tails add a dis­tinc­tively RAK touch.
