Yes, the martinis are really $22, but where else can you sit to evoke the spirits of some of the 20th century's greatest writers. The bar is simply not to be missed, though for an overnight, I've heard the rooms are often quite small.

My wife and I just completed a nine night stay at the Algonquin 9our second stay at this hotel) and we loved it. It is a classic, famous hotel with tremendous charm and style. We stayed on Marriott points and were upgraded to a room that was about 250 sq. ft. The room was very comfortable and king sized bed... More

We stayed at this atmospheric hotel for a long weekend stay. Totally a different experience than expected. So the bedrooms are a tad small, but that's not we came for. The best Negroni and Dry Martini ever. A delightful dinner, even though it was in the early hours of the morning, our time. Would we return? In a heartbeat.

Stayed in the Algonquin on a long weekend on the run-up to Christmas. It was a terrific location only a few minutes walk from 5th Avenue and Central Park - making it a perfect location for shopping. Concierge was very helpful in getting us last minute tickets for the Rockettes Christmas show at Radio City. Rooms on the small side... More

we stayed overnight to enjoy dinner and a show. Hotel is close to Grand central which allowed us to dump the bags before heading off to enjoy the day starting with Bryant Park, 2 blocks away. Room was very nice but a bit small for my taste. Bathroom was very nicely done but also small. The lobby has plenty of... More

You enter the Algonquin and immediately melt away into the bygone days of the Round Table and a world of style and class. The drinks are expertly mixed and bar snacks and nibbles never disappoint and always hit the mark. Don't save a visit for a special occasion. Drop in pre-theatre for drinks, go for afternoon tea or morning coffee.... More

I adore this hotel. This was my third visit. Everyone in the staff was welcoming. I booked a suite this time knowing from past experience that most of the regular rooms are small (common with older hotels so not necessarily a negative). My room was a perfect home away from home. It faced the back of the hotel and was... More

We visited the Algonquin to experience a part of New York history and were not disappointed. To enjoy a well made cocktail in a lounge with such an atmosphere, it's worth paying a bit extra!

A nice welcome upon arrival with a cocktail in the lobby area. Attentive staff, and DBoulud is next door. Other fine restaurants within the block. Good nights rest, nice toiletries, robe, free in room wifi. Love the location....Bryant Park, Theater District, Fifth Ave.
