We enjoyed our stay at the Algonquin. It was the perfect location for us; close to Times Sq and the Theater District. Room was very nice. It was also small but we expected that. Noise level was very low and our room was opposite the elevator. Mattress was comfortable. We slept great.
The lobby was inviting. The blue bar was fun and crowded both nights we were there. The continental breakfast that came with our package was much better than I anticipated. It came with coffee, juice and three pastries for each of us. Staff was friendly. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because the elevators were very slow. We had to drag our bags down 5 flights. We were traveling light so not a big problem.
We were there on a Rue La La deal so I based the value for what we paid as excellent. Might not have been so generous if we had paid their rack rates.
