Very Comfortable Hotel with great tradition.

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: IN addition to fine amenities, the price was very good.
Location: Theater District, Times Square. Walkable to Central Park.
Staff was pleasant, rooms very comfortable and clean, and this incredible history associated with Dorothy Parker and her amazing circle or journalists and writers. Food and service terrific.

Nice hotel

Posted Jan 25, 2015
Pros: It is loaded with atmosphere. It has a great history and has that feel, while at the same time the amenities were up to date.
Cons: The heat had a mind of its own but stayed pretty well in the comfort zone.
Location: Excellent midtown location.
Nice small room, bathroom was a little tight, my only real disappointment was that the room was across from the elevator which meant there was some traffic, and that it was located at the very base of an air shaft, which was about as unpicturesque a view of NYC as I could imagine (never opened the curtains). Nevertheless, the staff was lovely and helpful and I would stay there again, just not in room 308.

Great old-school hotel

Have wanted to stay and the Algonquin for several years but could not afford it. With the Expedia "deal" I stayed for 3 nights and it was great. I love the connection to the Round Table and the great writers who sat there.

Lovely Historic Landmark

Great staff and service. Rooms are small but lovely. Sadly, the Round Table Restaurant was just fair. Expensive, but food was average. I would stay at The Algonquin again but would skip their restaurant. The Blue Bar was great for an after dinner drink.

Love the Algonquin! The lobby is fabulous, the hotel staff is exceptional and the rooms are nicely appointed, if a little small after their extensive renovations. The hotel is perfectly situated in midtown, too.

Absolutely Excellent Midtown Hotel

Posted Jan 7, 2015
Pros: Everything, except the issue outlined above.
Cons: Bigger rooms, maybe, but given the high, high quality of everything else, the cozy spaces are more than acceptable.
Location: Right in Midtown, close to everything that makes Midtown great.
The Algonquin is all class, with small-but-excellent rooms, a professional staff all around (from the front desk to the door to the cleaning staff to the guys manning the bar), a large and comfortable lounge area and the attached Blue Bar, which has excellent ambience, spendy-but-superb cocktails and again, a couple of the best bartenders I've ever met in New York. And of course, it's a couple of blocks away from Times Square. The hotel's history is of interest, of course, and it's duly and modestly noted with information and a photo gallery near the fitness center on the second floor. The fitness center, by the way, is much better than that in most NYC hotels, which often slap a few old weight machines and a beaten-up treadmill in a closet-size space and call it a fitness center. The Algonquin's exercise room is immaculately clean and stocked with good, well-maintained weight and cardio equipment. The only down note, and it's a relatively minor one, is that a to-be-unnamed-employee set me up with transportation that I suspected was over-priced. A car ride to Brooklyn, for example, ran me $75, which New Yorkers later assured me was over double what it should have been. A ride to LaGuardia was $55, and again, I was told that was way more than what a cab would charge. Beware of offers like this, or see if you can negotiate those usurious rates down to more reasonable levels.
