The Dylan Hotel for The Perfect Midtown Manhattan Hotel Location Located in the city's vibrant core in midtown Manhattan, the best of New York City is just outside our front door. We're only a short walk from Grand Central Station, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Empire State, Fifth Avenue Shopping and the great restaurants of Manhattan. Only a few minutes away from New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center Surrounded by excitement. Cradled in comfort. That's what a stay at the Dylan Hotel in New York City is all about.
Dylan's interiors, by Jeffrey Beers, mark a deliberate departure from both the too stark and overly hip designs prevalent in the high-end boutique market, all in the 107 rooms of the hotel. Beers has created a timeless look for the property that redefines opulence for a new age while preserving the landmark-quality architecture of the 1903 Beaux-Arts structure.
The hotel features rich tones like amethyst, jade, emerald, opal and amber. Fabrics are soft and luxurious. The grandeur of the Dylan's public areas is evident from the moment one passes through the entryway.
Please Note: ID or passport and a credit card are required at check in as a guarantee.

first time to nyc!

Staff was extremely nice and helpful and location was perfect! Room itself was small, bed was hard and missing a fitted sheet, and the tv hardly worked.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!

This hotel stay was by far the worst I've ever experienced. I wish I could rate a 0 star. Paid for a queen size bed to stay with my girlfriend and instead got 2 twin size. Bathroom sink was cracked and leaking, shower temp kept rising and dropping and the shower head was at my lower chest-- I'm only 5'10. 2 electrical outlets were dangerously loose and pulled out of the wall when unplugging... I was truly scared I would bring bed bugs home. This hotel is revolting. Do not let the pictures fool you! Very disappointed!

Last Minute New Years Stay

Stylish mid-priced hotel in Midtown, suited all basic needs. Beds and pillows seemed a little old and worn compared to say an updated Holiday Inn or one of Marriott's budget hotel chains. The customer service was lacking and I do not think it was because of the holiday some front desk agents were very kind and helpful and others could care less or barely acknowledged you. There was no porter to help unload things from the car and onto a bell cart. I did that myself and brought all of my own luggage up to the room (I had a fair amount). Overall though, this being a mid-priced hotel in NY, the stay was just fine, nothing remarkable.

Broken heat

The hotel staff was very slow to attend us upon arrival. I understand that two people for six waiting to check-in is not a good ratio, but maybe it all would have been smoother and faster if the concierge kindly asked the guest he was attending to find a restaurant by herslef at the computer located 8feet away from the check-in desk. The room was a nice size, however, the heat was acting up. There are no thermostats to adjust the heat in the room, so count on being cold and at some point waking up sweating. The bathroom was OK, it was clean. Not sure about the soapdish which was a petridish that suctioned to the soap once used and removal required my long nails and some elbow grease. The shower temperature kept changing from cold to hot which made it impossible to enjoy the top to bottom marble tiles. Staff was informed about that but I doubt that anything was done. The towels were soft, but they only give you 3pillows. The bed was not comfortable, one of those old ones where the springs feel funky on your back when you lay down. One more thing: some heavy construction was going on in 2nearby rooms and the smell of heated copper, and the noise of hammers only stopped at 6PM, when I personally walked up to the workers and asked them when they would finally finish the work for the day. Was it worth it? For the location, yes. For anythin else...nope

Right next to Grand Central Station

This hotel was undergoing renovations when we visited so I think it is likely even more worth a visit after they're done. Overall, the location couldn't be beat and the staff was kind. The room itself did have some stains and the windows looked straight into a illuminated office building, even during the weekend, but this to be expected from anything but a 5-star property in NYC.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Grand Central station is less than two blocks away. You can hop on a subway from here and get to just about anywhere in the city. So much cheaper than cabs.
