Stayed here for a short overnight trip from DC on Sunday (12/1/13) to Monday (12/2/213). Having only ever stayed in bigger hotel chains throughout the city, I was very pleasantly surprised and delighted to find myself at the Algonquin. Though it is a part of the Marriott family of hotels, the Algonquin feels much more like a boutique hotel from the moment you walk under that awning and open the doors to the lobby. Everything about the lobby is charming, with an air of old New York you can almost taste. Whatever renovations were done to update the building did not take away from the unique features that make a building like this so quaint. Check-in was a breeze and the front desk staff were pleasant and accommodating. Our room was on the 11th floor, on the back side of the building. I appreciated the ear plugs, discreetly placed in the top drawer of one of the night stands, though there wasn't an excessive amount of street noise heard. Rooms and bathrooms are well-appointed, and while they might seem a bit on the small side, that is to be expected for an older building, such as this one. The bed was very comfortable, one of the best I've slept on in a hotel in quite a while. Check-out was as smooth and uneventful as check-in, and Matilda was there to greet us on our way out. I also appreciated that they were more than willing to hold our bags for the day, since we were not scheduled to head back to DC until later in the evening. Great location for travellers wanting to stay in Midtown, but not right in the middle of all the noise of Times Square.
