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

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

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.
