Behind the red-brick and limestone façade of the Algonquin, William Faulker penned his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Orson Welles honeymooned, and The New Yorker was born. The city’s oldest operating hotel, the Algonquin opened in 1902 and quickly became a haven for international writers, artists, and actors. Today, tuxedoed waiters serve cocktails in the oak-paneled lobby (also home to the resident cat), while hallways papered with New Yorker cartoons lead to the 174 guestrooms, which are small but comfortable. Dining options include the Round Table, named after the New Yorker founders, and the Oak Room, a renowned cabaret venue.

Room to Book:

The hotel has only two elevators which are painstakingly slow, so book a lower level room if you want to avoid long waits.

Insider Tip:

For an affordable breakfast alternative, the next-door Red Flame Diner & Coffee House is a popular choice.
