Just spent 5 wonderful days at the Algonquin. As you can gather from the title I had a nice suite on the 8th floor. Very comfortable seating area with a big TV and fast wireless internet. The bedroom was also quite roomy with a soft bed and yet another nice TV. Some traffic noise during the day but peaceful (for NYC) at night. The bathroom featured a stall shower which was a great touch to me. Room cleaned and towels replaced daily.
The hotel itself has a great film noir vibe. You can just feel history dripping from the walls. It even stirred the writer within me - this is my first ever TA review. Free coffee and papers available in the lobby.
Had room service a few nights as it was just to cold to venture out. A tad pricey, but what the hey, it is New York and I didn't have to go out in the 10 degree weather. There is a nice diner a few doors down that is quite reasonable and pretty tasty. Across the street is a nice coffee bar that also sells pastries.
Easy trek to Time Square and the Theaters. I walked to the Ambassador and Majestic with ease.
In short, a great place to stay. And where else do you get to say hello to Matilda?
