New York City
A 181-room Midtown West landmark where The New Yorker
magazine was founded, the Algonquin uses old-world style, tuxedo-clad waiters and an in-house cat to attract quiet couples, business travelers, and the occasional Nobel laureate these days. But back in the day, it hosted members of the infamous Round Table, the 1920s’ literary group with members such as Dorothy Parker and Alexander Woollcot. Numerous guests and staffers have reported seeing Round Table members roaming the dining room and lobby. A psychic medium recently confirmed the presence of spirits in the hotel. Even one of our readers
wrote in to report that she heard moving furniture late at night, among other abnormal activities.
