We love the Algonquin. We are still here, staying until Wednesday (9/28/16). The literary history, the small yet special feel, the amazing staff and the wonderful corner suites are all draws. My only gripe is that last night was our anniversary. We went to a nice dinner and a show, then back to the lobby here, which doubles as a... More

Not as fancy as the other Marriott "autograph collection" but still nice. Continental breakfast for... More

The rooms are small and the hotel offers no amenities like turn down services, mints or chocolates. Marriott bills this as one of their "autograph" series of hotels. It isn't.

Fantastic mid town NYC hotel with old world charm. The rooms are lovely, large (for NYC) and well appointed. The staff are friendly and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay perfect (kudos to Christine at the Front Desk who upgraded my room). The hotel is also located in mid-town...right in the center of everything. I have... More

It is a neat old hotel with a ton of history. The staff is ok the service and amenities are below average for this type of hotel. Not sure I would stay there again given all the choices in the area.

My stay was very brief, but I enjoyed it very much. I absolutely love the fact it is pet friendly with no fee unless there is damage. NYC rooms cost enough without a pet fee on top of it. The employees were all very pleasant. I believe my Bellman's name was Peter (I meant to write it down). He was... More

Had high hopes for this hotel and was disappointed. Rather sparse for a Marriott. Rooms were ok at best. Toilet was not working, I tried to call front desk only to find that phone needed fixed, and no coffee maker in the room nor room service. One self serve coffee machine downstairs. Staff was aloof from my perspective. Really disappointed... More

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.
