“overnight in the city”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

My wife and I come into the city often. Every now and then stay for an overnight . The Algonquin was a nice stay for us . Queen room not to big , but ok for one night. Staff very friendly. Bathroom updated, with a good shower. Prices for drinks in lobby bar were a shock, even for us. However I still like to sit in that wonderful space. Marty Gordon

This historic hotel is idea in many ways--the historical significance, the convenient location, and the service. The rooms are on the small side, but this is NYC after all, and it's an old hotel; so it seems like a small sacrifice for accommodations that offer so much else. The Algonquin has been restored to it's natural essence, so stepping into its lobby feels like stepping back in time. The Marriott has done an excellent job with this location. I can't recommend it enough.

My daughter and I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. With limited time, we wanted a central location that was great and safe. The Algonquin was perfect! Minutes to Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square and great restaurants and shopping. We had excellent service from the bellmen, front desk and restaurant wait staff. While the bathrooms are small, we loved the way they were decorated and the art deco feel of the hotel. We will definitely check here first for our next visit to the Big Apple!

Silver Elite (which doesn't appear to mean much). Love Marriott - typically my favorite hotel chain.

Booked a room at the Courtyard Times Square West. Flew into NY from CA for 48-hour business trip. Arrived at hotel - no rooms, hotel oversold.

1/2 hour later, was sent to the Algonquin w/ a walk letter. Courtyard graciously paid for taxi and 1st night. However, after arriving the at Algonquin, was informed this only applied to the 1st of 2 nights, and that the 2nd night would cost $444 (compared to the Courtyard that I had booked at $239/night, nearly 1/2 the price).

To make it worse, the only rooms available were one that was full of smoke (they later sent a filter up to clean the air), and another that was facing streetside in front of the 3a trash pickup.

When I asked if they could honor my original rate with the Courtyard, and if there were any other options room-wise, the Algonquin said no (despite having had 2 extra rooms available 3 minutes earlier), and that it was the Courtyard's fault I didn't get a matched rate. Didn't feel like a happy Marriott family.

I took the room in front of the trash pickup, and put on some white noise. Didn't work.

So I'm writing this review on 3 hours of sleep, headed into a full day of work and meetings, and left with serious questions about Marriott. Definitely not staying at the Algonquin again, and now not sure about Marriott either next time. I know this sounds crazy, but the midtown Holiday Inn Express has beaten the Marriott on both quality of rooms and service, at a price that's a third less.

The Algonquin notes the unfortunate circumstances you found yourself in as you were moved from the hotel where you had booked accommodation to another location with which you were not familiar. Typically a “walk”, displacement from one hotel to another, is a one night commitment with the guest returning to the original hotel the second night. Rates quoted by one hotel or another are individual and not broadly negotiated over the reception desk, even when both hotels share the same brand family. To best resolve an issue related to guest service, consider contacting the hotel directly as each matter is handled individually. Thank you for your feedback.

This was my second visit to this historic, charming hotel. It has been purchased by Marriott since my last stay but has undergone little change. The lobby area is still as I remembered it - old and charming. The tiny elevators are still there (which I kind of like). My room was well laid out and decorated but extremely small. I could barely turn around in the room and the bathroom was more like an afterthought. The staff in the lobby dining area greeted me warmly after each day wandering the city. A great home away from home.

We stayed in this Hotel and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the Hotel. This is so close to the heart of Manhattan, the Times Square, that you always feel the vibe of the city. You are at a perfect distance from Times Square and still so close and this hotel is beautiful, well decorated and clean and with modern look inside the rooms.

It is better than 4 star but I have to say the rooms was very small, even from NYC standards but several other good factors like our floor had the Gym, a business center, ice vending and a spacious lobby to have a coffee. The staff is very accommodating and nice.

Room Tip: Keep your expectation about the size of the room much lower so that you are not disappointed... Bes...

The Algonquin Hotel exceeded our expectations in almost every category. On West 44th St and approximately 1/4 block from 6th Ave, the location was perfect... just far enough away from Times Square and just close enough to Times Square. Multiple Metro line stops within close walking distance. A 24 hour Duane Reade convenience store is right around the corner. Try the coffee shop across the street as the hotel's coffee is decent but they only have milk and not half and half. The decor in the room and common areas are very well done and maintained. Housekeeping kept our room meticulously clean to the point where I tried to find smudges on the chrome finishes and never did. The doormen were always present and attentive. Matilda the cat did make one appearance. Our interior facing room was on the smaller side but the closet and bathroom were larger than expected in some NYC hotels. Street noise was not a factor at all. A couple guests with exterior rooms did mention street noise being a problem for them. Blue Bar, the attached bar is striking when you first enter. Prices in the bar, however, are exceedingly expensive. Two well brand vodka martinis were $48 including tax. I would stay here again in a heartbeat so long as the price was competitive.

Room Tip: Ask for an interior room if a quite room is more important than a view.
