    Historical Traveler Reviews The Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection New York City

    Ab Fab!

    from

    Have just spent 4 nights here with my husband and 9yr old son. We have had a fantastic time, the staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We loved the decadence of the lobby (including the cat!) and the suite we had was small but immaculate. Great location for all the sights. The hotel was the icing on the cake for our first trip to New York

    Disappointing but upbeat

    from

    Read some reviews before booking. Pluses: Atmospheric and pleasant staff

    minuses: tiny room, carpest must be original (circa 1910) and stained and dirty Noisy aircon Fst Internet access didn't work, took an hour to get a power supply for the 'router' in the room (someone must have accidntaly put the original one in their bag)

    Did these Other People Stay at the Same Hotel?

    from

    My room was tiny; the furniture was old and worn out and my bathroom was invaded by ants. The "old world charm" translated mostly into threadbare furnishings and bad plumbing. The staff was uniformly unfriendly. I can't imagine why anyone would stay here voluntarily ( I stayed only because a business associate made the arrangements.) The Sofitel, just a few doors down, is infinitely superior. Much better rooms can be had at numerous other hotels in NY (e.g., Omni Berkshire Place) for the same price. This hotel is way, way past its prime. It continues to attract midtwestern tourists who believe that the ghost of Dorothy Parker lives on. She's moved on, believe me.

    A special visit

    from

    Just 2 weeks after 9-11 I spent several days and nights in NYC staying at the Algonquin. I had been to NYC before, but was not able to book there with my schedule. It was delightful and since I live in the Midwest and don't get to your city often, quite a treat. We saw the Lion King, spent an evening the Oak Room, ate breakfast in your lovely dining area each morning. Your staff was superb, especially the Russian waiter in the dining area. We didn't have to ask for anything of any of your staff, because our every wish was anticipated and filled. The luxurious robes and other amenities were greatly appreciated. The history of the building just added to our enjoyment of the stay. thanks you'all. nr.

    New York's Very Best Hotel!

    from

    My sister and I spent four nights in April 2003 at the Algonquin on a trip to see the Matisse-Picasso exhibit at MoMA. We reserved a suite, number 310, which was a beautiful, quiet and comfortable get-away from stress. The rear bedroom has a comfortable double in a "cozy" room, while a sofa-bed is in the spacious front living room (with bay window overlooking 44th Street). Everyone in the hotel acted as if we were the most important people in their lives, the Oak Room dinner and cabaret were outstanding, and every feature of the place made us feel as if we were in a dear friend's home. The cost of the suite was less than two communicating rooms at a budget hotel, the location was perfect for shopping and theater --- and, OH MY, our stay at the Algonquin turned out to be the highlight of the entire trip!

    LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!

    from

    How cool and how NYC!!! Great location, old and full of history. Sink into one of the comfy couches in the lobby and ring a little bell on the table for some drinks. Perfect location, great price. Would stay there again in a minute!!

    Historic and Pure NYC!

    from

    Going to the city? No matter how many times you have been to New York, it's never too late to stay at the Algonquin (or stay again...). I have stayed at many hotels in the city, but if you want to feel like you are in New York, stay here. It's old school I tell ya, and rich with character. The rooms are small and very clean, but really, get out of your room- you're in New York! Beds are comfortable, Bathrooms are very nice. The price is usually very reasonable...in the $145 range. Time Square and Broadway Theaters are a few blocks over, but far enough from the noise and crowds. Enjoy at least a drink (or two) while you people watch in the lobby, especially when the cabaret crowd from the Oak room is leaving. Eat at the Red Flame a couple doors down for Breakfast...far less expensive than the hotel and served with a huge heaping side of New York charm (okay gruff-charm).

    So Nice

    from

    I used your site to trawl through the many hotels in NYC and decided to book the algonquin. The staff (all of them,roomaids upwards) were fantastic. The lobby staff and the waiters just could not have been more helpfull. The room was small and noisy (but this is nyc) being typically british I did mention this as I was checking out and they said I should have told them straight away and they would have moved us to a quiter location. I am very impressed and would defenitly stay again.

    The Algonquin is it!

    from

    The St. Moritz was my hotel of choice when in New York, before it became the Ritz (and before it was stripped of its charm along with its affordability). I've been looking for a replacement hotel that would serve as an equally comfortable home base and have just found it in The Algonquin. It's in an excellent location and provides a warm, accommodating level of service.

    While the rooms are not spacious and the views are not exciting, both are interesting and have been designed to make the most of any limitations, including a regard for privacy and comfort. A stay at The Algonquin is cozy, easy and satisfying.

    Warm and Comfy

    from

    We loved it here. The room was SMALL but we only paid 149.00/night and it was clean and lovely. The lobby is charming and an elegant hangout. The bar is great - service great. It is much like a private b & b. I couldn't believe I was in NY they made us feel so welcome--They served free drinks while waiting to check-out - which I thought a lovely touch and one I have never seen in any hotel ever. I would love to go back and try a suite.

    ... decided I'd go back and get it the next day!! I made my way back down town towards Union square, stopping in and tiffanys for a squizzy then realising I don't actually where the Tiffany I already have and I don't really like it all that much plus no one served me when I was standing at the counter for at least 5 minutes which ****** me right off haha so I left. Checked out Nike town but it was packed so I did a quick loop and left. As I was making my way back past ...

    ... For 90 mesmerizing minutes, Audra McDonald is Billie Holiday singing, recounting her life story while becoming increasingly “drunk” and incoherent. No exaggeration – this is the best “musical” and among the best Broadway shows we’ve ever seen. The United Nations and the chaos in the streets outside – these 90 minutes more than made up for it.

    All of this is what makes a visit to New York worthwhile. See ya again ...

(I'll wait while your brow unfurrows... yes, I had the same reaction the first time I saw that phrase, too). Moving to New Zealand means we have to learn the ways of the Kiwi, which includes their use of sayings rather than just saying what they actually mean. Bob's Your Uncle is a great example.

I am guessing he is supposed to be in good shape and handsome in the book...I am still rather scarred by a scene where he was in a tight workout leotard. Tight is not an exaggeration. For our last night together, ziggy, Sam, Monica and I went to an Ethiopian restaurant which was absolutely delicious. Ethiopian food is beautiful with curried beef, stewed carrots and lentils. You also eat with your hands which is ...
