Wonderful location, especially for theater goers. Rooms are small and our bathroom was tiny. Only 1 person at a time could occupy and that person felt cramped. Public spaces felt very tired. Service was very good.

We found this hotel a great place to stay. It is a little quirky but the staff were great and nothing was too much for them to do . The position is great very close by to everything we were able to walk to all the sights, I would defiantly reccomemd this hotel

The Algonquin has a fascinating proud history (first hotel to allow female guests to stay unaccompanied) along with their famous literary past. What made our two night stay so special was the hotel staff. One of the elevators was broken which one would think would translate into a significant inconvenience. Instead it provided a unique opportunity to meet a variety... More

The hotel is run by Marriott. Small but delightful rooms, clubby restaurant and vibrant adjoining bar. The rooms did not have coffee makers, but they have an attentive staff with free coffee in front of the elevator doors. Like most older hotels, the bath was tiny, nut updated, and a great shower. A bit noisy on the street side with... More

I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a more intimate old world feeling.... Be cause it is small, the staff knows you as you go in and out. I went with my daughter and 9yo granddaughter. I did get the King Suite on the quiet side which was perfect. It was two separate rooms with a couch pull... More

I had read the reviews about the great service and as soon as I walked in I was impressed by the gracious and friendly staff. The bar manager got me a club soda to take to my room since there's no room service, which I really appreciated. My room was small but very clean and the bathroom was spotless. Free... More

Beautiful old hotel on easily the loudest street in manhattan. Walls and windows are paper thin so feels like you're sleeping on the street. If you want to listen to garbage trucks, dumpster divers and construction crews (even Saturday morning) than this is the hotel for you. Otherwise go elsewhere and get a night's sleep.

We had a great weekend at the Algonquin, the room was just what we needed, updated, and very clean. The bartenders were great and so were the drinks! Everyone we came into contact with was extremely friendly and helpful, we will definitely be back!

This is an historic hotel where writers used to gather and meet. The lobby is a lounge-meeting place and makes one want to loudly talk about their forthcoming book that the publisher says will sell thousands of copied next month. Captures people's attention around you. Breakfast in in the lobby: premier members get a continental breakfast and lay extra for... More

We have been so impressed with this hotel. They have a very friendly and accommodating staff. The breakfast is wonderful with serving sized being very large. The history of this building is so interesting. The design and oldness of the hotel makes it extra quaint. The accommodations of our rooms was pleasing as well.

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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
