I went to NYC the week before Christmas with my cousin to visit family near the City. She had never been to NYC before, and I am originally from NY. I chose the Algonquin for several reasons. The historic building and literary tradition interested me. The location was superb. I had stayed at a nearby hotel on my last trip,and had visited the Blue Bar, and thought the Algonquin would be a classy, comfortable and personalized place. I was not disappointed. We found the hotel to be very clean, the service prompt, pleasant and courteous, and the atmosphere to be classy without being stuffy. Yes, the room was small, but it was immaculate, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The decor is nicely resored, and fitting for a grand old hotel. We arrived during the first day of the NY transit strike, expecting general confusion and the famous NY chaotic pre-holiday stressed out hassles... after a very long and rather anxious trip to Grand Central Terminal, we walked the several blocks to the hotel (as finding a cab that day was impossible)... Upon arrival the hotel staff immediately made us feel like long-lost friends. The stay at the Algonquin was wonderful, quiet and very civilized... Room service was efficient, the doormen were pleasant and acknowledging without being personally invasive (a trend I would hope will spread in NY...) and since the hotel is less than two blocks from Times Square, everything was convenient and close. I will be staying at this hotel as often as I spend time in NYC. Highest recommendation!
