The Algonquin is a deluxe, historic landmark hotel, located on the prestigious Club Row, 44th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. The Algonquin completed a multi million dollar historical restoration in May 1998. The lobby, newly restored with writing desks, antique furniture in deep jewel tones of plum, mahogany caramel and olivestill 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. .
