Quiet, cozy, comfortable hotel, with very courteous staff -- all very welcoming. Room was nicely appointed, even if on the small size. Excellent location, with lots of great restaurants, theaters, attractions an easy walk. The only drawback with a legacy hotel such as this, is that the elevators are small, slow, and too few, so when one of the two... More

I travel for work a ton and have been to a lot of places...including hotels in NYC. The service I received from the staff at The Algonquin -- in particular a HUGE shout out to Edwin at the front desk -- was bar none exceptional. From storing our bags since we arrived mega early, to giving me a little more... More

Very old hotel in the middle of everything. It has everything except for the room sizes, small beyond ridiculous! I wouldn't call it a Luxury Hotel but again I don't set the categories. But the location of it could not be any better even if you try to pick one. Clean. Modestish. Reliable. Excellent service but for the money it... More

ThIs is an old hotel that has been recently renovated. The rooms are small but very nicely presented although the bathrooms are tiny. The old elevators make for interesting conversations but they work! The rooms are quiet too and the location is great. Above all, the staff are very friendly and also efficient and helpful. Recommend this hotel highly.

If you're fortunate, Matilda the cat may welcome you to the hotel. When not perched on the reception desk, she can be seen napping on her tree perch and can be viewed through a window on the sidewalk outside. We found the "talking" staff to be helpful and courteous. I cannot speak for other rooms, but our suite was generous... More

This is a fabulous place to stay in the Big Apple. Refurbished and vibrant, but loaded with history. Parodies and signed portraits by famous writers abound, and the bar is simply a place in which to enjoy it all.

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

This is our first time visiting this hotel. This hotel's bar has a long history, dating back to the civil war time's... As for the hotel itself our room is small but comfortable, clean and any/all the staff we've encountered have been pleasant and courteous. Not as fancy as the other Marriott "autograph collection" but still nice. Continental breakfast for... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
