Loved the location! Loved the excellent free coffe! Loved how kind, attentive and helpful all the staff were! Loved the free water !! Loved the elegance of the room!
The bed had a down comforter which got a but hot. By the bed there was a piece of furniture that my friend bumped his head on when he was in bed, room 205. There were not enough towels I the room so I kept having to call for more towels. I think I left a bathrobe in the room and I keep calling about it. So far it has not been located.
Stay away from low floors of street side noisy throughout night blinds did not close and lights stayed on. Disaster
Location is excellent. Coffee Lounge is a nice touch as well as free coffee in the morning. Rooms are quite small, and temperature control is not adequate... either too cool or too hot. Also 2 small elevators are not sufficient for the traffic. As this is a landmark hotel, elevator capacity cannot be corrected.
Very atmospheric. Lots of history. Cozy nice wine bar
Location was perfect for our needs; the hotel's history is fascinating.
The construction taking place behind the hotel involved nonstop noise--- like jackhammering but worse because of the huge excavating equipment--- from 7 A.M. to 6 P.M. during the work week. We were told we were "upgraded" to a queen room upon arrival and then informed about the construction. Thank goodness I had brought earplugs! While I realize the Algonquin has no control over nearby construction, I do think they should inform guests earlier or reduce the rate for guests staying on the backside of the hotel. The noise was deafening---even the porter warned us when he took our bags to the room, saying the noise was really bad. I loved the hotel except for this terrible noise.
Excellent location, close to Times Square but quiet, twin bed room size ok for New York, very friendly staff, newly renovated bathroom, beautifully styled and very lively lobby frequented by natives
Friendly staff, comfortable bed, good food, very pleasant atmosphere of lounge/dining area
Room opened straight on to the corridor (no entrance hall with bathroom/wardrobes as in many hotel rooms)
It is a hotel where guests are treated like royalty. Staff very courteous and friendly, rooms immaculate and very comfortable, hotel very accomodating. Lobby is wonderful, cozy with armchairs and drink and food service...great hotel.
I've stayed at the Algonquin many times, and have never found anything unlikeable about it. Now that all the rooms have been rennovated it's even better.
