Centrally located near Times Square. Renovated hotel has kept old NY flare. The Blue Bar offers a step back in time with a cool feel as does the nice lobby/bistro. No concierge room for Elites but you get breakfast choices and $10 supplement for off the menu options. Best lox I've ever had for breakfast anywhere. Small room but well... More

Popped in here for an early evening cocktail and we were welcomed by the manager, an Irish expat who shared the history of the building and its patrons over the years. A really classy old joint. Recommended.

Oh my word - my second stay at this fabulous landmark hotel . It's always the same - stylish , classically New York , from the welcome at reception to the historic Blue Bar . You must have the martini with olives of course !

Such a cool hotel that is filled with so much history. They had complimentary fruits and bottle water placed in our room and definitely welcomed. A stone's throw from Times Square, you're close to almost all of the theatres and you also are an easy walk from Rockefeller Center, Grand Central and subway station. We did get to see the... More

Highly recommend this hotel; stayed there this past weekend. Wonderful service - from front desk, to maid service, to bellhop, to restaurant in lobby. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. The historic vibe and location were terrific. Special shout out to Christian, the bartender in Blue Bar for making us feel welcome, and Shawn, the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quick NYC weekend with the highlight being present for the Triple Crown! The hotel is a boutique and very quaint. We loved it. The rooms are typical of NYC. We had a king which was fine for two nights. We did not have any street noise. The best part of the hotel- the Blue... More

We only used the Blue Bar but could approached via the main entrance. The welcome was perfect from all encountered and one could feel the elegance all around. The Blue Bar itself is great, terrific list of cocktails. Very comfortable surroundings and furnishings. Service was immaculate. The free popcorn was delightful. A must visit venue.

Came for a weekend getaway to enjoy food, wine and theater. This hotel is centrally located to the theater district, Times Square and the subway. Room is comfortable and spacious for New York standards. Bed and cooling/heating were excellent. Bath was nicely appointed, but tiny...I have bigger on a cruise ship. Service was good but not obtrusive.

We stayed here on a Saturday night. It's a nice hotel. The lobby area is tasteful and the service is very good. We were expecting a bit of New York noise at night particularly given the proximity to Times Square but we didn't know there would be bone-shaking construction work going on from midnight to 6am. Horrible night's sleep. Don't... More

We started our honeymoon at the Algonquin. And what a way to start! We had used The Autograph collections at home in London and had never been disappointed. The Algonquin certainly kept the standard up! We had let them know beforehand that we were visiting for our honeymoon. On arrival the front office staff were incredibly happy, friendly and helpful!... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
