New York's Algonquin Hotel Debuts Renovations

April 30, 2008 By: David Eisen

Manhattan's Algonquin Hotel, which first opened its doors in 1902, has unveiled a new look after a $4.5-million renovation, which included upgrades to its lobby furnishings, Oak Room, Blue Bar and all suites and guestrooms.

Changes to the lobby include the addition of recessed lighting and new furniture in dark color schemes; the famed Oak Room has been refitted with a new sound system and new piano; while guest room decor has been updated with new colors and fabrics for window treatments, furniture, bedding and carpet. "We have succeeded in providing guests with a refreshed property that retains the same charm and feel that this historic literary landmark has always offered its guests," commented Jenna Arin, the hotel's director of sales.

For purists, the "bones" of the renown lobby were not altered. Still present is the New Yorker wallpaper that is synonymous with the property, and Matilda the cat still roams the lobby floor. The likes of Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and William Faulkner were frequent Algonquin guests. Visit
