We just returned fron a two night stay at the Algonquin to celebrate my birthday. It's a lovely boutique hotel but with horrendous construction noise! Our first night was in Room 1205. It was a cute, sunny room with a big bow window and window seat. It wasn't a large room but we're used to that in the city. When... More

The good- The hotel is charming. It has so much personality and history, and it was great for that. The bad- CONSTRUCTION noise from H*ll! Expect to be woken up at 6 am ET (especially hard if you're from another time zone) to the sound of jackhammers. It sounds like they're literally drilling in your room! They even put earplugs...

I get to stay in a lot of NY hotels every year, and this is either the smallest room or the biggest shoe box in NYC. (but all nyc hotel rooms are small. So, let's talk about the real issues...) The beds are not comfortable. The hotel staff did not replace bathroom supplies. The bar staff is rude. The showers... More

We got a great rate through Travelzoo ($189 including Continental Breakfast and a Deluxe Room). Well, maybe that was the problem. Our room - 512 - was everything but "Deluxe"... It was a little bit bigger than a Queen Size bed. Yes, there was a flat screen TV, because a regular TV wouldn't fit in the room, unless you removed... More

A really lovely hotel, with a olde worlde foyer which looks like something from an Agatha Christie novel. Friendly staff, good sized rooms. The most comfortable beds ever. We got a great deal through Travelzoo which included continental breakfast and we were delighted. The room was quite large, bright and airy with a flatscreen tv on the wall. Just down... More

Just returned from a mini-trip to NYC with our two teens. Being our first trip to NYC, we wanted a location convenient to see as much of the city as possible. Could not have asked for a better location. Within easy walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway and Central Park. Very easy subway access to Lower East Side,... More

We stayed at the Algonquin from March 16th - 22nd, 2008. We booked through Expedia and got a great rate (under $300.00 a night), so we weren't expecting a premier suite by any means. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at two other hotels on that same block and the Algonquin certainly measured up. We found the staff... More

I had a faboulous time in NYC when I stayed at the Algonquin - infact I ended up getting engaged to my long standing girlfriend in the room there ! It is a charming 1920s style hotel. I found the staff extremely helpful and the location fantastic. I found the foyer bar a relaxing place to chill out after a... More

We were very excited to stay in a "Premier Suite" (total bill approx $650 for one night) at the Algonquin. Unfortunately, our woes began immediately. We arrived shortly after 3 p.m. I parked the car and my wife went inside to check in. At the desk, a female guest cut in front of my wife. This guest complained loudly about... More

I spent two cold, snowy nights at the Algonquin Hotel when I was in NY on business. Overall, the experience was really uneven – all of the previous reviews are basically accurate. While nothing rose to the level of being truly disastrous, the whole experience left me a bit frustrated and disappointed. It wasn’t all bad, however: The Good 1.... 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.
