I stayed at the Algonquin for 4 days in October 2009. I thought the hotel was very charming, reasonably priced for NYC, and we received excellent customer service. The beds, bedding and pillows were perfect! I slept like a baby. I thought the room was quiet and while small, not unusually small for NYC. It was perfectly acceptable. The location was perfect. There was a doorman that was very polite and helpful in getting us a taxi.
The person who carried up our bags was extremely charming and recommended their signature martini in the bar. I am naive and didn't realize how expensive it would be -- $17! So unless you are a martini connoisseur or something, be warned! I wasn't sure if that was a normal price for NYC -- I did see a price of $14 elsewhere.
We did not eat there, but instead at at a place directly next door that is always packed but reasonably priced and good food.
We did have a problem with the air conditioner when we checked in, but within minutes after calling, a man came to repair it and we had no more troubles.
I would definitely stay there again. It is so hard to find the perfect place and let's face it, hotels in NYC are so expensive. So this is a keeper. The location was perfect, the service was perfect, the beds were perfect, they had an iron, they had a blowdriver, they had Bath & Bodyworks bath products, great towels, quiet room, great staff.......and a cat, this is my kind of place.
