I just returned from 2 nights at this hotel. I loved the location. Just 2 blocks from Broadway. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We received good suggestions for restaurants and fast response for a taxi. The rooms were adequate for an old hotel. They were clean and extremely quiet on our floor. ( 9th) The only negative I...

What a great place to stay in New York City during the busiest shopping weekend of the year! The front desk staff was really helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean, beds are super-comfortable, and despite being an old hotel the bathrooms are immaculate. The room fits 2, no more. If you need to fit more people, get the suite,... More

A few years back bad things happened to the Algonquin. The prices went up and the service went down. The free bottled water was withdrawn from the rooms and the chaotic but friendly desk staff were replaced by chaotic but unfriendly desk staff. After a couple of bad stays, we tried elsewhere (ten trip to NYC, three different hotels) This... More

Rate received was reasonable for NY but not cheap by any means. The room was lovely albeit a little on the small side but it is NY. Flat screen TV a nice tough and bahroom amenities were nice. The Front Desk personnel were very friendly and double as concierge with good suggestions. Also liked the bar, very cosy. Only one... More

We stayed at the Algonquin whilst I was visiting to run the marathon. We arrived last Thursday (1st Nov 07) and left on Monday 5th Nov. A few days before we travelled we saw some negative comments from guests and it caused us some concern. We needn't have worried. The only bad thing about this hotel was that during our... More

We have used Priceline to book a room in NYC and when we first saw the hotel we have gotten this way, we were quite pleased with the choice. But then I read the more actual reviews and unfortunately we have to give the Algonquin a rather mediocre review. The ambience is great and the rooms are very nice. The... More

We had a very comfortable stay at the Algonquin, which, for us, was ideally situated near to the Broadway theatre area. Our rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were superb. Reception and other staff were helpful and friendly, although some of the information they gave us was incorrect – our guide book was more reliable. We had booked... More

We'd stayed at The Algonquin over 20 years ago & we were pleased to go back as we had fond memories of our time there. The first thing we noticed (how could you not) is that it is now attached to a building site. The noise starts at 7.15am & goes on most of the day. It is incredibly noisy... More

We were meeting friends of ours who used to live in NYC for a long weekend. They never stayed at the Algonquin but it was in a convenient location and had a long reputation so they reserved their room and a room for us. We got a confirmation of the reservation with specifics including a king size bed as we... More
