My teenage daughter and I went for a long weekend trip to NYC and stayed at the Algonquin. I had heard that it was very historic and quaint. The room/bathroom was spotlessly clean, while it was small, however we were not in the room all that much , The concierge, Daniel, was very helpful in recommending a nice restaurant for dinner, (not too pricey) and giving directions to shopping spots. Matilda the cat was ever present, making this place even more special. We stayed on the top floor facing the back, so it was very quiet in the evening. All around, a wonderful hotel.
