    The Algonquin Hotel recently underwent a complete renovation – modernizing many elements of the hotel experience, while maintaining its famed historic charm through the inspiration of famed designer Alexandra Champalimaud. All guestrooms feature signature Algonquin beds and bedding, and unique amenities including New Yorker magazines and available eReaders for the enjoyment of our guests looking to “wind down with a download”.

    A New York City landmark recently named to the National Trust Historic Hotels of America, the Algonquin Hotel is located in the heart of midtown Manhattan at 44th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, just steps from Broadway’s Theatres and world-class shopping. The recent $4.5 million renovation effort focused on refreshing the hotel lobby, upgrading all guest rooms, laying new guestroom carpet and introducing new bedding to the 174-guestroom hotel – creating a new era of elegance at the historically significant hotel.
