Spent 4 nights at the Algonquin recently and mostly enjoyed our stay. Check in was fast and efficient by the agent Ann. She did well to recognize my Gold status with Marriott Rewards, after thanking us for our loyalty to Marriott she explained that continental breakfast was included. Kevin was our bellmen and was also very hospitable in taking us... More

If you have never stayed at The Algonquin Hotel when in NYC, then you have not yet experienced one of the most memorable Manhattan moments. This hotel has been a justly famous fixture in NYC for the past century. The hotel became an iconic landmark in the 20s when a group of authors met there for lunch and libations -... More

I truly enjoyed reading your review, especially your shout out to our famous Dorothy Parker! It is true that she did live on property for a time, and it is wonderful to hear that you were able to feel a part of our rich culture. The abmiance in the lobby is very special, and certainly one that you won't find... More

Four nights in the Simon & Schuster suite were a treat. The bath was small definitely one at a time but the bed was large and lines of fine quality. The sitting room was well appointed including refrigerator. Shame there was no coffee service in the room. We enjoyed the exercise room on 2 and found taking the stairs good... More

The Simon & Schuster suite is one of my absolute favorite rooms at this hotel for the exact reason of having that wonderful bookcase in the room! All of our 25 suites are special in their own way, and I'm thrilled to hear that the Simon & Schuster was a perfect fit for you! We have just installed a new... More

The Algonquin Hotel was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere. I was always hesitant to make reservations assuming it would be too costly being that it has such a wonderful history. I was pleasantly surprised that it was only slightly more than places we usually stay in the same area. They even offer discounts for... More

I shared your lovely comment with Matilda, and she apPURRoved. Next time you stay, I would reccommend booking our Matilda Package, which includes a plush Matilda replica, a personalized note from the one and only, and a copy of Fabulous Felines Health and Beauty Secrets for the Pampered Cat by Sandy Robins. We can't wait to see you next time! More

OK the room was tiny and actually had a frosted window onto nothing but at least that meant we would be quieter than in a street fronting room. I loved the restored grandeur of this historic place and of course was utterly charmed by the resident moggy, Matilda. Of course it's terribly expensive and we should have eaten dinner out... More

My husband and I have just had the most amazing 2 night stay at the Algonquin on Time Square, we give it 10 out of 10. An old hotel with loads of charm. It sits in walking distance to many sights and great shopping. The hotel staff were very nice indeed, kind and very helpful with questions regarding sightseeing and... More

Very clean and tidy, typically tight Manhattan-size room, stylish, modern and nicely appointed. Bathroom small but perfectly clean and had everything needed. We never heard neighbors even though rooms surrounding us were occupied. A folding suitcase stand was provided but if we had wanted to use it, there was actually no floor space on which to put it (again, typical... More

Clearly this is a move by Marriott to try and offer variety to all types of travellers and it definitely doesn't have the chain hotel feel. The location is unbeatable for midtown and just a few minutes from Central Park. The 42nd Street subway station a few blocks away will take you to the World Trade Centre in 10 minutes.... More

Just returned home after a quick one night stay. Prior hotel reviews are accurate: the hotel is a small, boutique style hotel with friendly service located off the theater disctrict. While the room and bathroom was small, it was clean and comfortable. The bed was standard for a Marriott hotel and we had a great nights sleep. The lobby area... More

Classic cool meets contemporary amenity. Optimally situated between Grand Central Station and the hustle of Times Square sits a picturesque boutique hotel where the service is the only thing that trumps the décor. A bit unique of a layout you can experience definitive 1930s NYC. Rooms are compliment to the style; refined and giving plenty of space. Updated bathroom fixtures... 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.
