The hotel staff was amazing. This was a trip for our anniversary. Upon arrival we were taken to a suite instead of the standard room we were expecting. Dinner was great you have to try the Crab Lasagna. The history and nostalgia are very interesting.

The Algonquin first opened its doors around 1902 and served as NYC headquarters for many of the leading lights of literature, theatre, finance and politics for many years. My husband and I stayed there for five nights recently while we were in town for some R & R. The hotel was purchased by Marriott some time back and they have... More

Great location and a beautiful historical building. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, especially the bellmen. The guests- not so much. We encountered only unfriendly and rude guests, but we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. Hotel has been updated. Bed and bedding were very comfortable. Small bathroom, but had everything we needed and good linens. We stayed in a corner room... More

Have been in love with the idea of staying in the Algonquin for many years. I booked it as a special treat for my husband's 50th birthday. We stayed in October 2015 and I have been delaying my review due to a small issue we had with the hotel. We were delighted with the location, history and style of the... More

We stayed here while visiting for a show at the Town Hall. It was perfectly located. The room was nicely appointed and very comfortable. The staff were attentive, and the concierge recommended a great restaurant for our post theatre dinner. She also arranged our airport transportation which worked out perfectly. The lobby bar was very comfortable and we enjoyed the... More

Really historical hotel - bit of a rare gem - great location and very clean. Not rated as excellent due to size of room and bathroom which were very small but typical for central Manhattan

We were staying a few doors away @ the NYYC and decided to have a cocktail here. We love the old world atmosphere of the Algonquin. The blue bar is just amazing and the bartenders are great and so friendly. Not something you always expect in a busy city like NY. It's a little $$$ like most of the city,... More

We love this location and when we couldn't get into the Iroquois Hotel we stayed here. The rates are a bit higher but the hotel itself is quite luxurious. You feel like you are part of history staying here and the staff were very attentive

I have stayed here many times since 1968 on various visits to New York and in that time the hotel has had many different owners. The building has recently been landmarked, The changes made by Marriott are not all good. The new cheap crystal lighting is not as attractive as the traditional old wall sconces - of which only a...

We were a party of four, one couple and my sister and I staying at the Algonquin, lured by its fantasy. Not disappointed for one second! Our initial room was a little small (two sisters sharing) but we were moved so we could use a roll away bed. The decor was elegant, the service friendly and extremely professional. We especially...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
