We visited the Algonquin hotel for a fancy afternoon cocktail during a one day New York visit with some folks that were there for their first time. When we walked in, the manager on duty, Patrick Sheehan - a Dublin ex-pat - welcomed us and couldn't have made us feel more at home. He was an absolute pro and such... More

We have stayed at the Algonquin (the home of the Algonquin Round table) once/year for the past 10 years. We love it! We usually splurge and get a suite. The Noel Coward suite is the most spacious. The regular rooms are small and may not be for everyone; it can also get noisy. The food is good (could step it... More

Stayed in a suite, I believe the Edna Ferber on the third floor. Exceptionally clean, we'll decorated, and quiet. Bathroom was clean and well stocked, not small at all. Bed was very comfortable. Room service was quick with good food. Hotel provided for my cat with basic necessities. Loved the lobby for just sitting and watching people. Round Table restaurant... More

NY Times Square sized rooms - the bath was so small it was silly, especially the shower. Room itself less than 250 sq ft poor ergonomics. The view from the top floor (12th) despite being platinum Marriott was the AC vents of the nearby building. The carpets and wallpaper looks old and worn. Free coffee is lobby and included breakfast... More

Dream of time travel as you step back into this historic landmark that has enough updates to be pleasant but respectful. If you love to read this is a place to imagine the spirits of the past hanging out and offering a thank you for their great literary works.

This hotel underwent a multi million dollar renovation and the room decor is modern and classy. Rooms are small (but expect this for many NYC hotels). The bedroom and bathroom furnishing are elegant and reflect the style of the hotel. Close to Times Square. This is a great place to stay in the heart of downtown NYC. Within walking distance... More

We were there celebrating our anniversary because it was the first ny hotel we stayed back in 1994. The main difference is that is not as exclusive as it used to be. it became a chain hotel and ended up losing some of the charm. I would stay again for broadway and shopping.
