When in New York, spend your nights at these hotels with long and distinguished histories.


1. The Algonquin Hotel

Best known for hosting The Round Table, a group of 20th century literary figures like Dorothy Parker and Alexander Woollcott, for lunch almost every day in the 1920s.




2. The Plaza

The only Manhattan hotel to be named a National Historic Landmark, this playground for the rich and powerful gave its name to the Plaza Accord, an important 1985 pro-growth agreement signed by five governments.






3. Gramercy Park Hotel

This hotel also comes with great pedigree. The Kennedy family once stayed here, as did sports heroes like Babe Ruth. Later, it also became the favourite refuge of musicians like Bob Dylan and Madonna.
