No I did not. The lowest rate I could get for the Algonquin was $382.
No, you can get it for $236 using Marriott's low price guarantee that is explained on your other threads.
1) Go to the marriott.com website, search for the Algonquin Hotel, and make a reservation at the "best available rate" (fully cancellable, not prepaid), currently $402 for 9/14. Be sure to book the standard rate, not the AAA, or senior discount or prepaid rate.
2) Go the American airlines aa.com website and find the link to where the Algonquin hotel is available for $315 for 9/14 and bookmark that page.
3) Use Marriotts "Look No Further Best Rate Guarantee" and follow the procedure:
Since you originally booked the room for $402, they should honor the guarantee. In your case, they will change your rate to $315 - 25% = $236/night
It's the easiest thing in the world, we've already done all the research for you. Since this is just a reservation, you pay nothing upfront, you have nothing to lose. If you do any other option, you will be getting a worse hotel at a higher price.
You have the opportunity to get the 4* Algonquin, in the heart of Time Square for an unheard of price of $236. Why would you do anything else?
