Key selling points: Taking cues from the Algonquin Round Table, this suite checks the opulence of the Jazz Age with a streamlined sumptuousness; after all, brevity is the soul of wit and charismatic hotel décor.
Plush furnishings, gold accents, and marble floors are balanced by a soft taupe palette and floor-to-ceiling windows that fill the rooms with natural light. The accommodation honors its moniker with a carved wooden table that seats up to 12 in a dining room—serviced by a kitchenette and private butler entrance—that serves as the ideal spot for late-night debates over a bottle of wine.
Standout service: For an American guest, staff bought and unlocked a phone unavailable for purchase in the US.
