The Algonquin Hotel

New York, NY 10036 US

  • About the Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection

    Entering the Algonquin Hotel is like wandering back in time – there's history in practically every corner. With a storied grandeur and dark wood-paneled walls, the Algonquin is one of New York City's most famous hotels, a true-blue New York classic with a distinctly old-world feel. The brick-and-limestone building first opened its doors in 1902 and quickly became the unofficial meeting spot of Manhattan’s literary and society heavy-hitters, such as Dorothy Parker, George S. Kaufman and The New Yorker magazine founder Harold Ross. Today, the Algonquin's timeless vibe endures, despite a 2012 renovation that upgraded the 181 rooms to state-of-the-art splendor.

    Situated in the heart of Midtown, the Algonquin is in an ideal location for visitors eager to visit New York’s must-see attractions. Bryant Park, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center and Times Square are mere blocks away. Visitors in town for business are a stone’s throw from the many large corporate headquarters on Sixth Avenue, and theater mavens are minutes from the myriad shows on Broadway. For Ivy League grads and sailing enthusiasts, the hotel’s location smack in the middle of “Club Row” – think the Harvard Club, Yale Club and New York Yacht Club – will no doubt inspire many fond memories of years past.

    That is, if you elect to leave the sumptuous Algonquin. Designated a New York City Historical Landmark in 1987 and a National Literary Landmark in 1996, there is plenty to see and do onsite. Order a drink and people-watch in the elegant lobby, surrounded by jewel-toned Edwardian furniture and, if you're lucky, the Algonquin in-house cat; examine its New Yorker cartoon-festooned wallpaper; or simply relax in your plush room and lather up with fragrant L’Occitane products in your sleek bathroom. With these amenities and many more, it’s no wonder the hotel has drawn discerning doyennes for years (Gertrude Stein, Simone de Beauvoir and Maya Angelou, to name a few). Rooms have been updated since the days of Stein’s stays, however, with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations.

    Did you know
    The hotel has had a cat-in-residence ever since the 1930s. If the cat is male he is named Hamlet, while females are called Matilda.

    William Faulkner drafted his Nobel Prize acceptance speech at the Algonquin in 1950.
  • The Algonquin's location off of Sixth Avenue makes it a solid choice for business travelers who want to be near corporate headquarter-centric Midtown, but the real draw is for visitors hoping for a taste of Old New York, and a glimpse into literary history.
