"Nice stately hotel"
Decided to stay at The Algonquin as they are part of the Marriott Autograph collection. Was very pleased with the service and the complimentary breakfast because of my Gold status with Marriott. Room was small but clean. Bathroom was very small but met the needs of my wife and I for our short stay. Not sure I would like the small environs if we were to stay a week. Never saw Matilda - the house cat.
Located just off Avenue of the Americas, The Algonquin has a great history. Built around the early 1900s it became famous in the 1930s for the Round Table, a group of writers who met there every day for lunch.. The rooms are very much in the art deco style, and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Cat lovers will appreciate the presence of the hotel's cat, Matilda, a fixture at the hotel (there has been a resident cat since the 1930s).
Was there a couple of years ago and had a great visit. The staff was great and overall the place has a wonderful feeling of old New York the way it was before it became overrun with billionaires and bankers.
This hotel is in a great location, and is good value. What makes it exceptional is their staff, who go to great lengths to be helpful for their guests. We had an issue (not a minor one, and not the hotel's fault) and Gabriela Jimenez in the front office went OVER THE TOP to assist us, working well past midnight to make our trip perfect. She deserves special recognition. We highly recommend your property!
My husband and myself just returned from the Algonquin hotel in NYC. We live close to the city but choose to spend a couple of nights at the Algonquin after a lovely afternoon we spent at the Blue Bar several months ago. It is such a lovely place with such a warm and inviting atmosphere. The décor is classic old, elegant but comfortable, Our room was spotless and cozy, and everyone who works there could not be more helpful and friendly. I can not forget Matilda the hotel cat also a perfect addition to a perfect place. Enjoy as we did.
