So So So Worth It!!

This hotel is a true experience, and will surely make your trip that much better. The rooms are comfortable, and the staff is wonderful. But the best part is the history -- the building at one point was a tenement, and during the renovation to its current state, they were careful to save and use so much of the building's history. The portions of the original tile floor, mantelpieces, wood work, and so many other tiny details...it all tells a story. The bathroom door in each room is the original front door of the apartment. The employees all took the time to answer any any all questions about the building and surrounding area, as well as great places to eat and shop. Please take the time to consider this location....you wont be disappointed.

There are several late-night and all night restaurants/diners that deliver quickly that are not astronomically priced -- after sightseeing and walking around all day, we did take advantage of the Remedy Diner delivery...and were eating great food within 20 minutes. The hotel staff will give you a list!

Long weekend in the Big Apple

Blue Moon Hotel is a boutique hotel located in an ideal setting for some the best sightseeing in Manhattan. Easy access to subway, buses and taxis. Many areas of Lower Manhattan and the Lower East Side (LES) are within walking distance and that is the best way to view the sites. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. Many ethnic eateries are in close proximity to hotel. Highly recommend a stay at this historic facility.

Great Place

Blue Moon is fantastic. The staff was wonderful. So friendly and willing to help. The room was very clean and the sheets were very soft. The location was good for us. Close to live music, great restaurants, China Town, Little Italy, Soho. The decor was warm and inviting. Not the cookie cutter look of the chain hotels. Artistic and charming and worth the stay.

Friendly and quirky in the heart of Lower East Side

Great welcome, friendly and helpful staff, and a room with personality made our stay at the Blue Moon a really special one. Beds were comfortable, breakfast a bonus, and the music and ambiance great. Stay here and you will be on the spot for restaurants, vintage, subway, and even walking over to Williamsburg.

The High Line walk is the best way to see NYC and get a fix of green, and it's a well-kept secret so not crowded with people.

Summer weekend fun

The Blue Moon was absolutely perfect for our weekend get away in July 2013. It is quirky with character and suits its neighborhood well. The lower east side is not for everyone but if it is your kind of scene, then the Blue Moon will keep you happy. The staff could not have been more obliging, the room - Paul Muni - was spacious, bathroom clean, water hot and pressure good, A/C worked well, The value could not have been better. We will be back. Thank you Blue Moon for making us feel so welcome!

Great value for the location

On check-in we were warmly greeted and given a glass of wine. The rooms were generously sized, tastefully decorated and super clean. This was a bargain by NYC standards. Later we walked by the "other" hotel we were going to book and both gave a high-five for have chosen the Blue Moon. We had a slow drain in our shower the first morning. When we brought it up to the front desk, it was quickly taken care of that same day. No more shower or room issues at all. The continental breakfast each morning was not lavish but it was adequate, quiet, and clean. The bagels and pastries were first class and the selection of teas was extensive. Good location --- walking distance to Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, and subway lines. Because the hotel is tucked away on a sidestreet, the noise level at night was minimal. Aside from the ocassional door slam of another guest, the entire stay was peaceful. The staff was friendly and helpful. You got the feeling that they liked working there and cared about their guests. Attention to detail is the norm at the Blue Moon. We'll definitely stay here again.

Surprise meeting

I was in the city for a surprise meeting. The staff at the hotel was very understanding in letting us hang out in the lobby all day long. Compassion and respect are lacking today and I really appreciate the hospitality the Hotel offered myself, my guest and my "surprise" I will never forget my experience with the Blue Moon. The hotel was neat and clean and I felt right at home. Thank you

A stay in the past

This hotel was wonderful. It was built in the 1800's and The Blue Moon has done a fantastic job maintaining the quality and history of the hotel and decorating. The room was impeccable and came with a mini-fridge stocked with sodas and waters. (No Charge). The tub was fashioned from the time period and was heavenly in it's size. The front staff was very pleasant and shared recommendations for place to eat. I am looking forward to returning in the fall when the jazz club will be completed.

Our favorite NYC Hotel

Charming hotel that gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling of home away from home. Great location for touring NYC, great restaurants within walking distance, and the best coffee in NYC 2 minutes from the hotel. We can't wait for our next visit to NYC and the Blue Moon Hotel.
