“Most enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The Algonquin Hotel has it all: good position, excellent staff and tasty food. Stayed just after Super-Storm Sandy and the staff were most welcoming. Exterior was still undergoing renovation, but this did not affect us. Lounge area was great for having a quiet drink and watching the world go by. Felt like a true hotel, with the staff joking; for example, saying that they were going to the 13th floor to check the swimming pool (there is no pool) but this made me ask - and we both laughed. Maids have been there years and love the hotel. The Algonquin is a real taste of New York!

Room Tip: Suite was large and settee which converted to a bed was very comfortable.

The Algonquin is awesome!! The location is great, 44th Street between 5th and 6th. You can park across the street for $35.00/night (which is good for Manhattan). Back to the hotel, small elevators because they weren't there when it was built. Marble staircases easily accessible to every floor. The gym is well equipped, clean, and they have free coffee 24/7. The room and bathroom is a little small but remember how it was in 1902! The shower and sink are brand new and the pressure in the shower was much better 100 years ago. I highly recommend this hotel, as long as you can afford it. It's in a perfect location and will make you appreciate what hotels used to be like. A true historic gem!!

Room Tip: Every room has a literary quote on a placard outside the door. Noise was not an issue but I grew up...

I have stayed here on numerous occasions & it is a bit special. No great big chandeliers or razmatazz. It is what it is. A great location, with great staff and an atmosphere that is second to none. We usually stayed during the Christmas Season & it is an ideal location for shopping , sight seeing & the theatre. You could drop your bags & order afternoon tea in the lobby with a minimum of fuss. It was a guest friendly hotel in every sense of the word.If you are looking for large rooms with jacussiz, etc. It is not the place for you. But if you want a place that is vibrant enough with a serenity that is relaxing this is the one. Staff all seem to have genuine Photogenic memories & welcome you back as old friends. They always had a cabaret artist that would return season after season, and be in keeping with the surroundings. The nostalgic surroundings make it well worth a visit, even if just for afternoon tea. Why it's being marketed as Times Square I simply don't know. If you want the Algonquin & it's laid back ambience why would you want Times sq?

You walk into a Beautiful boutigue hotel, tastefully decorated and cosy lobby/ lounge area - only to be dissapointed by the size of the bedroom albeit expensively finished.
It was very ideally located for 5th avenue - therefore great for career shoppers.
Breakfast was delicious, fresh and good quality!

The Algonquin has an excellent location in New York, just a few blocks away from Broadway shows, shops and great restaurants. Although the rooms are a bit small, they are cozy and comfortable. The only negative point is the carpet, that is not really a nice option for allergic people.

If you like space in your hotel -- spacious lobby, big rooms, wide halls -- this hotel is not for you. But if you like being in the middle of the city, with a lobby full of soft chairs to enjoy a hot snack after a night on the town, with a very attentive staff, and cozy rooms, this is the hotel for you. Bathrooms were clean and modern; bed was very comfortable, TV screens were big, free coffee downstairs in the morning with a selection of newspapers, the heaters in the room were the best, and everytime we walked out the front door there was a cab waiting for us. For us, it was the right place to stay.

As a Marriott rewards member, I decided to try this place out. I found it very nice - small room, but clean & seemed to have recently been remodeled. But, here's the thing - the new window treatments used in the rooms do not block out all angles of viewing. I was mostly in the room at night, but when I woke up one morning and people from a workplace were looking right in the room. Be careful.
