new york on a whim

The smiles at the front door only kept resonating throughout the room and lobby and the entire building...The room was cozy and comfy with attention to detail that made you wish this were home. The complimentary evian bottles by the nightstand to help wet the hangover hurties, the citrus scented candle and shampoos to inspire smiles and serenity, the slippers, the robe, the blowdryer and the tub and seperate shower...how many words do we get?;-) The best part is the bed. Cozy enough to knock you out like mama said, supportive enough to help you spring to life in the morning. kudos!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

for the perfect nightcap, check out the blue bar in the lobby of the Algonquin hotel, just a few steps away and home to the famed Algonquin roundtable...And for the late night set to help turn night into day with a drink, walk down 44th just past 6th and stumble into jimmy's corner bar(not on the corner, but the pics on the wall will clue you in why its named)

Best location for visiting NYC!

Loved this location! Easy walking to most everything we wanted to do. The a/c doesn't work especially well and the rooms had lovely duvets instead of top sheets which were just to hot to use.

Weekend getaway

A wonderful oasis in the middle of all that New York is about. Once inside it was so peaceful. Concierge personel go out of their way to make everything easy. Close proximetry to access any point in Manhatten either by foot, bus or subway.

Great hotel with fantastic location

I checked in several hours before check in time and was given a room with a terrible view that looked out into the backs of several buildings. I was disappointed and went back to lobby to see if I could get a room on a higher floor. I was told that I could but that I would have to wait until check in time. It was worth the wait. I got a room with a fantastic view. The hotel staff was very accomodating and all of them were very friendly and helpful.

Superb Location - Good Amenities

It was our first time to New York and it was a 3 generation of "girls" trip. The oldest in their 60's and the youngest was 9. The hotel was clean and the concierge very helpful. The concierge was available for questions, made good suggestions for dining and tourist events (even if we didn't do some of them) and were very helpful in getting tickets to things like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tours. For us "rookie" New York tourists, we felt the location was fantastic as we like to walk and it was easy to walk to Fifth Avenue, Times Square, Broadway Shows & Rockefeller Center etc. The location also made it easy to get to buses and the subway. There was a "runner" in the group and easy to get to Central Park and get in a good run. The rooms were clean and well attended. We had a couple of problems at check in but believe it was because of the 3rd party booking and the hotel did their best to correct it (even though they probably were not at fault) There were 3 computers available - at no charge which made it easy to keep up with work and check on things while away. I have travelled all over the world and I would definately recommend this hotel because of it's location, cleanliness, & courteous and helpful staff. Probably not the least expensive stay in the city but we felt it was off-set by the location and time and money saved by being convenient to many area attractions.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We found using the 2 or 3 day city bus tours to be invaluable. We did this the first day and it helped us get acquainted with the various neighborhoods and attractions. The tour guides gave great hints on shopping, dining and where to purchase same day discounted Broadway tickets. It helped us to plan the next couple of days of our trip. We believe it saved us time and money, especially if we had tried to take taxis to all those places.
