John Wisniewski Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street, New York City.

Welcome to the Algonquin Hotel, the famous meeting place of NYC's legendary Algonquin Round Table, otherwise known as the 'Vicious Circle'. This group of extraordinary literature-related figures includes writers, editors, and critics that were highly prominent in the Roaring 20's, with members such as Dorothy Parker, Harold Ross, Robert Benchley, Harpo Marx, and Robert Sherwood.

Of course, this hotel is a huge draw for New York's literary and artistic crowd, the historic literary landmark providing a spot of education, history, and literary excellence all in one. However, it also draws foodies and lodgers in general, the hotel allowing guests to eat, drink, and stay here as well! There are several one-night lodging options available, the hotel coming quite a long way since offering $2 a night room upon opening in 1902.

Visit the Round Table Restaurant itself for a warm meal and make-you-warm drink, and get a 'tasteful and modern take on American cuisine', as well as American culture.
