The storied Waldford Astoria

La Vanguardia reports today that the Hilton hotel chain has agreed to sell a landmark New York property: “el conocido hotel Waldford Astoria.”

As we’ve come to expect from La Vanguardia, this factoid is conveyed in a typeface that dwarfs the words WALDORF ASTORIA emblazoned in gold letters on the hotel’s facade, right there in the paper’s own photo.

Before the sun had set on La Vanguardia‘s October 7th edition, the typo had already been scrubbed from the online version of the article, confirming our long-held suspicion that the paper’s print version is just a rough draft for the web archives.
