The Algonquin is a storied hotel and the location of the famous Roundtable where authors like Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley would meet almost daily. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful and Matilda the house cat would patiently watch over all the activity from her spot at the front desk. When she got bored you could see... More

Were were able to check into our room well before the normal check in time and that made the start of our trip that... More

I love staying at the Algonguin. It has been my favorite hotel in NYC since the mid-70's. The atmosphere takes one back to the roaring 20's as the sprits of Dorothy Parker and the Algonguin literati pervade every breath. Unfortunately, the years wore on the old hotel, and then Marriott stepped in a took over and refurbished everything. I was... More

I stayed at the Algonquin for 5 days. The location of the hotel is amazing. Its a 2 minute walk to Broadway and Times square. The staff are exceptional and very helpful. I went to a show on Broadway recommended by the receptionist who had seen the show herself. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I was with a group of... More

This was the first time in many visits to NYC that I had to book a hotel, and I chose the Algonquin for its reputation and excellent mid-town location - central to just about everything I wanted to see and do. The staff were excellent and professional in their service. Special shout out to waiter Chuck in the restaurant -... More

Great location near Times Square. As a lifetime Platinum Marriott traveler, we reserved a suite for Father's Day Weekend (room 1212). Room layout was fine but couch was badly stained (posted picture) and floor by couch was soaking wet. Breakfast service was excellent. Just hard to overlook a disgusting sofa when you've paid up for a nice suite.

The "Gonque" as it is fondly known by its guests is a true New York treasure. We are so glad that we discovered that it is now an autograph collection hotel. We stayed here the night before a cruise and it was the perfect way to begin our adventures. The character of the hotel has remained in tact but it... More

The oldest hotel in New York but worth every penny of our stay! Characterised by the squeaky lifts, narrow corridors and 'homely wooden staircase rails', we certainly will be returning to this hotel in future. Not really child friendly (quite happy to have checked in without the kids in tow) but was quite impressionable that most of the staff were... More

Great hotel in the perfect location. Convenient to Times Square theaters, Grand Central Station and Fifth Ave shopping. Rooms are typical NY small but quite nice. Hotel services are first rate and the history of this hotel is interesting.

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.
