Algonquin Hotel; New York, NY

In the 1920s and '30s, the Algonquin Round Table, a group of authors and thinkers including Dorothy Parker, Harpo Marx and Edna Ferber, met at the Algonquin Hotel to eat lunch and discuss each other's work. Many believe that the group continues to meet. "Dorothy had such a huge impact on the Algonquin while she was here that her spirit lives on," says Gary Budge, the hotel's general manager. Budge says that after renovations were done on the 13th floor, a framed picture of Parker dropped and shattered because she didn't like the changes. Though he has never seen Parker, Budge understands why she would return. "The Dorothy Parker suite does have a lot of her memorabilia, so if she did return she would feel right at home."
