The Algonquin is a deluxe and historic landmark hotel, located on the prestigious Club Row, 44th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan near Times Square.

Few Manhattan hotels can rival our historic landmark in blending the old and new.

The lobby, newly restored with writing desks, antique furniture in deep jewel tones of plum, mahogany caramel and olive, still retains the architectural properties, charm and ambiance long associated with this landmark hotel. Original marble stairs have been polished and layers of paint have been removed from the iron banisters to reveal beautifully detailed ironwork dating from 1902. The newly appointed guest rooms and suites have plush carpeting, new mattresses, bedspreads and drapery and hand selected antique furniture. The bathrooms have period wall coverings, fixtures and refinished soaking tubs. Plush carpeting and custom wallpaper, designed by New Yorker cartoonist Robert Mankoff, join antique light fixtures and prints in the hallways. Intimate arrangements of settees and chairs create the perfect environment for reading, writing, quiet contemplation or conversation and as a result, The Algonquin retains its position as a welcome oasis of civility amid the hectic pace of New York. The hotel has been named "One of America's 10 Best Historic Hotels" by Historic Traveler Magazine. The Algonquin is minutes to fine dining, shopping and entertainment venues.

Famed literary gatherings. Echoes of some of the world’s most celebrated cabaret singers. A singular environment of inspiration that spawned the creation of The New Yorker magazine. All of these things are impressive in their own right. More impressive still is that they all occurred at The Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection.

Today these traditions continue, just as they have for over 100 years. Step into the sanctuary of our lobby on any given evening, and you will find a diverse mix of New York’s cultural and artistic elite. Here, and within our famed Round Table Restaurant and Blue Bar, martinis are savored, ideas are shared, insights arrived at, and the designs that result shape the cultural fabric of the city.

At the beginning of the 20th century, New York’s social life was moving from downtown ballrooms to what has become today’s soaring Midtown. It was this migration that led to the construction of The Algonquin. In 1902, an intimate hotel with a red brick and limestone façade opened its doors in what had become one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The two most popular restaurants of the era – Sherry’s and Delmonico’s – were within walking distance. Five of New York’s great clubs – Yale, Harvard, Bar Association, New York Yacht, and the Century – were neighbors. The Hippodrome, advertised as “the world’s largest playhouse,” opened across the street, as did a number of noted theaters.

From its inception, manager (and later owner) Frank Case created a vision for The Algonquin as New York’s center of literary and theatrical life. His enduring fascination with actors and writers led him to extend them credit, in the process luring such luminaries as Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and John Barrymore.

Famed women flocked to the hotel as well, as The Algonquin was unconventional early on in accommodating single women guests. Over the years, these have included Gertrude Stein, Simone de Beauvoir, Helen Hayes, Erica Jones, and Maya Angelou.

Three Nobel laureates visited on a regular basis, including Sinclair Lewis (who offered to buy the hotel), Derek Walcott, and most memorably William Faulkner, who drafted his Nobel Prize acceptance speech at The Algonquin in 1950.

The legend continued to evolve, maintaining its original spirit faithfully through a series of renovations. After joining the Autograph Collection, a group of independent and unique luxury hotels, The Algonquin was acquired by its current owner. The hotel was then closed for five months in early 2012 for extensive renovations to help preserve the hotel's iconic spirit while adding contemporary comforts.

But perhaps the most important facet of our history is found in our hospitality. The hotel notes each guest’s individual requirements and preferences, so that upon return, their wishes can be attended to in advance. One keen observer wrote: “The Algonquin is one of the fast diminishing breed of hotels – those that still boast personality.” In the premiere issue of Historic Traveler magazine, The Algonquin was named one of “America’s Ten Great Historic Hotels.”

In 1987, The Algonquin was designated a New York City landmark, and in1996 it was designated a literary landmark. But surely, this remarkable hotel is destined for even greater artistic, cultural, and literary greatness.
