• New York’s Algonquin to become a Marriott

The historic Algonquin Hotel in New York is to join Marriott’s Autograph Collection, according to reports circulating in the New York Times. The 174 room hotel dates from 1902 and was the place to be in the 1920s for the city’s artistic and literary community.

Marriott is promising not to remove too much of the Manhattan hotel’s quirky charm – including its resident cat. Recently, the building was declared a New York landmark by city authorities.
