Description

Village Voice's Description

One of the most historic hotels in New York, the Algonquin was the site of Dorothy Parker's famed literary round table discussions in the '20s and, in 1950, William Faulkner wrote his Nobel Prize acceptance speech here. Now the hotel is most celebrated for the cabaret performances that take place every night in the Oak Room bar and the 174 comfortable guest rooms that blend rich antiques with modern conveniences like flat-screen TVs and Internet access.

  • HISTORY on 03/29/10

    Guests at the Algonquin Hotel claim to see ghostly members of The Round Table, a group that included writers such as Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Franklin Pierce & Harpo Marx.

  • Lucky Magazine on 02/12/10

    Head to the Blue Bar. It’s Old New York and super-fun.

  • USA TODAY on 11/22/10

    Dorothy Parker and The New Yorker founder Harold Ross were among the Algonquin Round Table community of writers, critics and tastemakers that lunched at this literary landmark for years.

    Say hello to Matilda, the official kitty-in-residence!

  • HotelChatter on 07/08/10

    Excellent, excellent lobby. Head here for tea or for some of the best thick fries in the city. Ask for the wifi code at the desk & do a little work...and don't forget to pet Matilda, the lobby cat.
