Just three days remain until Oct. 17, when the Waldorf Astoria Hotel auction will end.

It may take about that long to comb through the more than 80,000 items offered in the first-ever fire sale of one of New York’s—and the world’s—most prestigious hotels. After announcing a years-long renovation in 2017, Park Avenue’s landmark venue will be selling classical baroque and rococo French furniture from the Windsor Suite, the Cole Porter Suite, the Winston Churchill Suite, and the Marilyn Monroe suite, among others.
