A small cramped room without a view or decent reading lights (none was supplied when asked for). The bathroom door handle came off and was not properly fixed. The toilet paper fixture fell apart. TV guide did not work. Though recently refurbished, the Algonquin is a mediocre hotel that lives off its former reputation for glamour. And it is very much overpriced for what it offers.

As you know, we are a boutique style hotel and so our rooms are not large in size, however they are comfortable and well appointed. The hotel opened in 1902 and since then taller buildings have blocked the view it once had. Please accept our sincere apology for the faulty fixtures in your guest room, it was a terrible oversight. Thank you for your kind words about our associates, we pride ourselves in excellent customer service and so it is nice to have this confirmed by our guests. We hope this experience does not deter you from visiting us again.Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.
