Features
Traditional style

Behind the red-brick and limestone façade of the Algonquin, William Faulkner 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. Though the iconic, 174-room hotel underwent a sleek, top-to-bottom $5 million renovation overseen by architect Alexandra Champalimaud in 2012, its grand, oak-paneled lobby is still home to both the post-Prohibition-era Blue Bar and the ever-present resident cat.
