Algonquin Hotel, New York

Interior

The lobby is a double height exquisitely decorated area with rich patterned carpeting, solid wood panelled columns and lower walls topped by delicate painted murals. A clock chimes on the hour adding to the graceful charm of the attractively furnished open plan lounge. Long deep cushioned sofas, wooden framed upholstered chairs, tall vases, lampshades and potted shrubs are in abundance. A restaurant is located towards the rear with sturdy wooden furnishings creating an almost exclusive dining room environment. A door leads in to the Blue Bar, curiously called as no signs of blue but plenty of deep wood colourings in a dimly lit ambience.

Rooms: 174
