On arrival at the hotel, after a 12 hour journey from the UK, we were told that there was in fact no room available for us that night as there had been a leak and that we were to stay in the sister hotel. José the receptionist was as much use to us as a chocolate fire guard. He sent... More

My wife and I had dinner reservations for Thanksgiving night and we're turned away due to the restaurant being full. We made reservations months in advance and were told to go eat in the bar. We decided to leave the property and eat elsewhere. We proceded to our room to get our coats when the elevator broke down, leaving us... More

Dear Guest I am terribly sorry for the negative experience that you encountered with the restaurant reservation. I don’t understand how that happened and I truly am sorry for this. As for the elevator I also apologize because I know it’s extremely inconvenient for our guests to have to wait longer. However, this can happen anywhere. This was an unfortunate,... More

Lots of fun at the Algonquin a block from Times Square in the middle of everything you ever wanted to do and with in short walking distance of Broadway, Fifth Avenue and Central Park. This place is nicely restored with current amenities with a legendary lobby and lounge reminiscent of famous writers of years gone by and even a current... More

I visited the weekend after Thanksgiving. They were not properly staffed and could not turn rooms. Although rooms were guaranteed by 4 many guests seemed not to have rooms until well after 5 pm and some as late as 6. One elevator was not working (there are only 2) and the waits are quite long. Also the thermostat in the... More

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here for 4 days. Beautiful, classic hotel, with an amazing heritage of being the oldest working hotel in NY.

Algonquin lounge has jazz and good but quite expensive cocktails. I had a Dorothy Parker cocktail and got quite sloshed! This lounge has nice relaxing music and there were lots of men on work meetings around us. They seemed to be happy meetings!

Friendly personnel all round in a charming hotel with a great location on West 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, close to Times Square. As we were told at check-in the Algonquin is the oldest hotel in Manhattan, built in 1902 and they have restored the hotel to the original. Very charming atmosphere in the foyer and a great... More

Very much looked forward to the storied Algonquin. Disappointed. Front desk staff not at all friendly at check in. Somewhat disinterested. No consideration given to Marriott status for early check in. No extra effort to get us an alternate room. Bathroom and shower very very small even by New York standards. Could not turn around in the shower. At checkout... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
