Stayed at the Algonquin last week and found it to be warm, "cozy" and the perfect location.
The bed was comfortable and the room was fresh and clean. The staff was exceptional and very friendly, I stayed there a few years ago and found it to be a little cold.
Loved the workout area, I wasn't expecting much because the rooms are SO small but that was a pleasant surprise. If the rooms were larger I'd stay with my husband on our next trip. On second thought perhaps I'll ask for a larger room
