HAMLET: THE ALGONQUIN CAT

Written by Leslie Martini & Illustrated by Massimo Mongiardo

August 3, 2018; Petaluma, California—A street cat is swept up into a glamorous life at the historic Algonquin Hotel in New York City, a well-known gathering place for writers, editors, and artists. With his predecessor Matilda as his guide, the scrappy Hamlet must learn the ropes of his luxurious new home. But will this stray cat take to life indoors? Hamlet seeks guidance from the writers of the famous Algonquin Round Table, where voices from the past help him find the courage to take his rightful place as king.

 

For those whose imaginations were captured by The Plaza's Eloise, they will find her feline counterpart in Hamlet: The Algonquin Cat.

ABOUT THE ALGONQUIN CAT

For many years the history of The Algonquin Cat was believed to have its origins in the 1930’s, when a stray cat came wandering into the hotel for food and water. After the hotel acquired an out-of-print book written by the hotel’s first general manager, Frank Case, a chapter was discovered about a cat named Billy. Based on the timeline of the book, the hotel is now proud to say the lineage of The Algonquin Cat dates back to the early 1920's. Two days after Billy passed, a stray cat wandered into the hotel and The Algonquin welcomed Rusty. The famous classical actor, John Barrymore, was a resident at the time in the early 1930's, and Rusty was renamed Hamlet in his honor. Hamlet is said to have been Barrymore's greatest stage role. The hotel has had a total of 11 cats, including Billy. The lineage includes seven Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat that has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue. In 1980, author Hilary Knight immortalized The Algonquin Cat with his cartoons for a children’s book on which he collaborated with Val Schaffer. The current Matilda began her residence in December of 2010. Today, Matilda is looked after by the hotel’s Chief Cat Officer, Alice De Almeida. The hotel’s executive chef cooks her special meals on holidays. She receives fan mail and gifts constantly, from around the world, including Japan, Australia and Russia.  Matilda can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  She can also be reached via e-mail.

The Algonquin Hotel is located at 59 W 44th Street, New York, New York 10036. www.algonquinhotel.com.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary drinks in our lobby and escorted to your room just as if you were staying at a close friend’s guesthouse – there is no front desk or lenghty check in process.

Each of our rooms feature a spacious layout to meet the needs of our busy and well-traveled guests, hand-picked modern yet comfortable furniture, and a selection from our private antique collection. The Hotel Modern goes beyond the basics to offer an array of cultural amenities, such as thoughtfully curated books in every room, a live music series with international artists in our cocktail lounge, Bellocq, and worldly dining at our renowned restaurant, Tamarind.

Our Lounge takes its name from photographer E.J. Bellocq, who secretly photographed the madams of pre-prohibition New Orleans. It features a menu of original cocktail creations from Neal Bodenheimer, Kirk Estopinal and Matthew Kohnke,the founders of Cure, the new Orleans bar named one of “(The Best Bars in America” by Esquire Magazine.

Acclaimed New Orleans chef Dominique Macquet (Dominique’s on Magazine), along with his chef de cuisine Quan Tran, have created their newest restaurant, Tamarind, at The Hotel Modern New Orleans. Named after the exotic tropical fruit Macquet enjoyed as a child growing up in Mauritius, the restaurant explores world cuisine in a warm and inviting setting from the perspective of nearly a century of French colonial presence in Vietnam. Tamarind also features an outdoor courtyard and a 60-seat private dining room.  www.thehotelmodern.com
