The Algonquin has undergone an extensive renovation and what was a dark dank cramped hotel is now quite a bit better. The overall room size (even in a suite!) is still small and the elevators are small, too few, and painfully slow. The passenger elevators still double as staff elevators so expect to share with housekeeping. The restaurant food and wine selection is much better than before the remodel, although typical NY expensive. The affiliation with Marriott seems very sketchy, as noted in other reviews, just point earning and not much else -- no upgrades, staff seems completely clueless about the Marriott Rewards program levels. Room furnishings have been nicely upgraded, although the location brings with it nighttime noise and lights that are hard to block out. Staff was responsive in removing an unexpected charge on the bill, although it took a little effort.
