Midtown Manhattan Hotels near Times Square

The Algonquin Hotel has a storied past. It was built in 1902 and was once the watering hole for the writers, actors and artists of the Algonquin Round Table of the 1920's.

Many of the writers for the New Yorker magazine, including editor Harold Ross, were members of the Algonquin Round Table. The Algonquin Round Table regulars also included the editor of Harpers magazine, Art Samuels, as well as Alexander Woollcott who was a playwright, the NY Times drama critic and an early radio personality at CBS. And of course, author and screenwriter, Dorothy Parker.

The Algonquin continues to maintain an old world charm, while providing all the modern amenties. The room where the Algonquin Round Table met is intact and the Algonquin has a restaurant that serves an elegant breakfast, lunch and dinner at 59th West 44th Street in Midtown, near the Times Square theater district.

Iroquois Hotel NYC

Midtown Manhattan Hotels near the Theater District

Manhattan Hotels NYC / Manhattan Buzz NYC.

manhattan hotels iroquois hotel theater districtThe Iroquois Hotel was erected in 1899 and completed in 1900. The Iroquois Hotel is located only a couple doors down from the Algonquin Hotel on 49 West 44th Street.

This hotel has been one of the great value for the money hotels in Midtown Manhattan, as it has a great location [only a few doors down from the Algonquin Hotel and blocks from Times Square], an historic feel, and classical old world charm similar to the Algonquin. But because it doesn't have the legacy of the Algonquin Hotel, its room rates are more competitive.

A German visitor told me about it in the early 1990's when she made a return visit to New York, after having done her research about where to stay in Manhattan. This was only a few years before the hotel made a $13 million interior renovation, so two decades ago, visiting her in her room was like walking through a century old time warp. Today the Iroquois Hotel offers all the modern amenities and conveniences, a great location and an historic feel.
