  • Took my wife in for a NYC weekend. Hotel is great, so much history and the service/staff is outstanding. Rooms can be a tad small, but that is to be expected.  more »

  • I'd like to give the Algonquin 1 star for the first night I spent there, and 4 for the second - but Google Reviews is all or nothing so I'm giving the first 2 star review of my life. I arrived in NYC after a long delayed flight - and was told that I had room 217 "with the nice big bathroom". The room itself was miniature, like many NYC hotel rooms - but what I noticed was that it was also very hot. I used the remote on the wall to turn on the air conditioner. It seemed to be stuck at 64 degrees but seemed much warmer in the room. I was so exhausted I passed out anyway at 10pm, only to wake up at 1 pm in a sweaty heap. It was smoking hot in the room - almost like a sauna, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the air conditioner on the wall to fire up. After an hour of sweating and messing around with the remote, I was unable to cool the room and went to the front desk. The woman at the front desk insinuated that I just didn't know how to work the air conditioner remote, and when I assured her that I had tried everything she said "Well, this IS the oldest hotel in New York." The engineer came up at 2am to try to fix it but could not. At 2:45, exhausted and sweating from every pore, I went back down to the reception to ask them to please move me. "I don't have any rooms for you," she said. By then it was so steaming hot in there, there was no way I was sleeping, so I just got up and had a cold shower. They moved me to a MUCH more comfortable room the next night (double the size and with a working thermostat) - but I was surprised when I got the bill at checkout that they hadn't even discounted for the first evening when I basically got zero sleep.
  • Great experience! The hotel is gorgeous and full of history, the rooms are a bit small but cozy and fancy, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The hotel is just under two city blocks from Time Square, so it's very convenient. The bar and restaurant are quite upscale and decently priced for a historic and beautiful place. Hamlet the cat is adorable and quite friendly, and our concierge Peter was a great guy with a good sense of humor and very welcoming. Only weird note is I kept getting static shocks everywhere, but it made my wife and I laugh.
