Being an author myself it was a real treat to be staying at the Algonquin and enjoying the literary atmosphere that is still there after as I understand the quite recent refurbishing . The hotel - with its exceptionally friendly staff - sure is taking care of its literary history, complete with a painting of Dorothy Parker and her friends at the round table, and literary quotes at the doors of each room. And the tags to put on the doorhandle are fun, too. If, for instance, you want cleaning, it's because you're out looking for ideas, and if you don't want to be disturb, it's because you're busy writing The Great American Novel.
The rooms were reputed to be quite small, so I decided to upgrade a bit, which gave me a very comfortable normal sized room with a queen size bed. The bathroom was in fact a bit small but quite adequate. To make it even better, I would suggest fluid soap in the shower and not just soap bars.
The bar is to die for and I spent many hours there - before or after Broadway shows. If you are on your was to one of these, the Algonquin is perfectly located, only a few second from, for example, The Belasco Theatre and less than five minutes from Boothe theatre.
