“Best Cocktails a Hotel Bar Could Offer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

If you are wanting to stay near Midtown, this hotel is in a great location. The hotel offers tons of character something which seems to be rare these days. I am hoping though when the Hotel re-opens in May it will not take away the charm we fell in love with the last time we stayed.We love staying at Boutique Hotels and could not have been any happier with this property. They even have a housecat named Matilda, who actually came up to me and allowed me to pet her. The Blue Bar offers an extensive list of Martinis. The bartender was pleasant and served me the Algonquin Martini which was one of the best Martinis I ever had. The staff was kind and took the time to point us in the right direction when we needed information for dining. My only regret was we did not have enough time to dine at the Round Table.

The rooms were very shabby. Rugs snagged and spotty. The bed was on a metal frame that squeaked awful. The service at the bar was the worst. Girls in tiny black dresses that only waited on you if you were wearing a suit or dripping in diamonds. The Algonquin needs to hurry up and get renovated already!!

Room Tip: Don't go there!

This location of this hotel couldn’t have been any better. Then again its NYC so everything is super close compared to where we are from (AZ). I think the staff could have been a bit nicer and helpful and that is the reason why this review received a 4 star and not a 5. This was the first stop on our honeymoon in Nov. 2011. The value was very good since we bid for this hotel on priceline.com!

Room Tip: The room we go was the cheapest room ($) and had a view of the inside of the building court yard thi...

One of the best hotel I have stayed. It's really a signature collection. You would notice that right when you enter the hotel. All the graphics were done neatly and presentable inside the room. Of course, all NY hotels have small room size but this one is special.

We travel to New York City many times during the year and always stay at the Algonquin. We have found the Algonquin to be our favorite hotel of all others that we have stayed. The lobby is a great extension of your room and you can relax there to have a drink or coffee in the morning. Perhaps the best quality of the hotel is the wonderful staff that always makes you feel at home. The hotel respects history and makes you feel part of the history of New York. We have stayed in other very nice hotels while the hotel is being renovated but none can come close to the Algonquin. Hurry back!

Room Tip: The suites are amazing!

A weekend in New York at the Algonquin.

Wonderfully eccentric, steeped in NYC history, old-fashioned service and values, all refreshing to me but maybe an acquired taste.

Incredible location just off Times Square.

Rooms tiny, air-con noisy, lifts miniscule, New Yorker cartoon wallpaper wonderful, great cocktails just a collage of fascinating people in the lounge and lobby.

Nice atmosphere; closed for badly needed renovations; I hope the bathrooms and elevators are redone. Colors inside are dark. brighten the place up. Staff is plesant. Meals are overpriced.

Room Tip: close to times square, but overpriced. wait until after renovations.
