3. Discounts For Writers

The price of staying in the hotel has increased significantly from its original $2 a night for a single in 1902 to upwards of $400 for a standard room today. But, if you happen to be an author on tour, you get a free night in exchange for an autographed copy of the new book. Former owner Frank Case used to send over plates of popovers, celery, and olives for the struggling writers at the Round Table. In continuing with the tradition, today, The Algonquin offer lunch discounts for struggling writers.
