The Algonquin is marketed as a boutique hotel and that is a great selling point in NYC! The smaller scale hotel allows for exceptional service and the staff was friendly and extremely helpful during our stay. It is located very close to Times Square and is a short walk up. This property has free Wi-Fi and bottled water! That is... More

We have not visited since Marriott took over a few years ago. Thank goodness they did not change the look of the hotel. You feel like you are stepping back in time when you enter the lobby. Marriott did make some improvements, wifi and new bedding/headboards. Rooms are indeed small, but really, how much time do you spend awake in... More

Good first. The hotel has fantastic service. Every person we came into contact with was pleasant and professional. The location is just a few hundred yards from Times Square. The bad, the room is amazingly small. We had a front facing room and had a great view of the office workers across the street. Had to keep the blinds shut.... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments about your most recent stay with us. As mentioned, we are very lucky to be in the heart of it all. When we were originally constructed in 1902, we were the tallest building in Manhattan, but since then, other taller buildings have been built around us. Since we are a... More

The Algonquin preserves a lot of its former charm, despite the fairly ludicrous Blue Bar. The staff are reliable and friendly, eager to help a chamber. And the hotel really cannot be beat for location, quite close to Times Square and the theater district. The rooms are small, almost compact, but pretty well fitted. I've often been to NYC, but...

Considering our colorful literary history, we really are a unique hotel. I see that you have discovered this, given your interrest in Dorothy Parker and her roots at The Algonquin. Since there is always something new to be discovered, we invite you to return as soon as you can--try out our Dorothy Parker suite! More

This hotel captures the spirit of Manhattan. Comfortable rooms, friendly and attentive staff, buzzing lobby area and the Classic Blue Bar. Close to Times Square, Broadway theatres, Central Park, Empire State and more. Will definitely be going back.

We certainly strive to capture the spirit of Manhattan, as you so eloquently mentioned, but we also provide an alternative to the bustling Times Square accommodations. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

We just got back from NYC celebrating my daughter's 13th birthday and stayed here. Very quaint hotel a couple of city blocks away from Times Square. We had originally booked our hotel at the Marriott Marquis and we are SO glad we changed. It was MUCH quieter at the Algonquin, no city noise from TS. After being around the busy'ness... More

This was my second stay at this hotel and I have to remember to read my own reviews. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in this part of town so I have a pretty good idea of what I like. In the end though, I chose this hotel for price. I tried to focus on the positives and it... More

My wife and I love the old, classic hotels. We have stayed at the Plaza (the best but really pricey), the Waldorf Astoria (faded glory) and recently at the Algonquin. From the moment we walked in this one just felt like home. The location is perfect, the lobby is great and brings back images of classic New York, and though... 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.
