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.

Just the history of the hotel is worth reading about, but staying makes it even more enjoyable. The hotel I believe is an Autograph Hotel through Marriott chain. The bar area is intimate, but packed full of locals and travelers just wanting to get the literary vibe of the historic Round Table. Rooms are clean, roomy, and comfortable. Each room... More

For those who are familiar with the history of the Algonquin Round Table, the New Yorker, and so forth, this hotel is the only place to stay in New York. Read the autobiography of Harpo Marx for one of the best first-hand accounts of what happened here, then have a pleasant drink in the lobby or dinner in the restaurant... More

I stay here each time I go to NYC. I love the history of the place and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I was a little disappointed on my most recent visit that they've replaced the caricatures of the Round Table intellectuals with pictures of the cat. I'd much rather stay at the hangout of 1920s celebrities than... More

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and they absolutely took care of us. They told us since we were staying so long they put us in the 2nd floor so it was easy for us to get in and out of the hotel without having to use the elevators all the time. Our room was fairly small but... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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.
