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.

Upscale Classic

The building where the Dylan is located used be be the Chemists Club of New York. The old charm is preserved in the finish and trim of thecommon areas, with modern furniture. The rooms are quite large, well furnished with amenities and exceptionally quite. The hotel has no more than 6 or 8 rooms per floor and has a very warm feeling. No hustle and bustle of a big hotel. Staff was available and helpful and since its less than a block and a half from Grand Central Terminal, access to subways is fantastic. It will be the only place we stay from now on !

Perfect location to visit New York - Very helpful staff

We were given a very nice room on the 16th floor with a splendid view.The staff if very helpful : you want an indian restaurant? Ask them. Your search for a mexican restaurant? Ask themp. Close to the subway, Grand Central Station and Times Square. For sure, on our next trip to New York, we will stay at Dylan Hotel.

perfect location

The Dylan is minutes away from charming Bryant Park, Times Square, and Grand Central Station, making it a perfect departure point to sights and several handy subway lines. Rooms are clean, elegant, and comfortable, although can be dim due to adjacent skyscrapers blocking sunlight. I would stay there again. I only wish they'd turn down the air conditioning in the lobby; no need to recreate the Arctic circle, folks!

Excellent, modestly-priced mid-town hotel

Small but well laid-out room - well maintained, with an excellent bathroom/shower. For our overnight stay (we were in NY for a wedding), this was a fine stopover. Staff was attentive and always courteous. Avoid breakfast here, though - it is an expensive afterthought on the hotel's part - indifferent, slow service.

Perfect location for a Christmas visit

The Dylan was a perfect place for my Christmas in New York. The staff was very friendly and easy to work with especially in dealing with the Blizzard of 2010! Everyone helped to make my holiday a special one. Just might be back next year!

HIdden treasure

The Dylan Hotel is barely noticeable as you walk by, but that's one of the best thing's about it! Coupled with the Benjamin's Steak House, this W like hotel is housed within the old Chemist's Club, a theme that is used in the room themselves in subtle ways. The Pyrex beakers for glasses in the bathroom make for a unique touch, for example. The rooms, while not what I would call spacious, are comfortable and relaxing, and the staff were only to willing to help with all of the things we asked of them. The location, 41st & Madison, is ideal for the tourist, being close to almost all the major sites. Being an ex-New Yorker, it was also just far away enough from the hustle to enjoy an early morning walk to get breakfast without fear of being trampled to death. Considering how much you would pay for a hotel with all the Dylan offers, this is value for money for sure.

Very family friendly

The Dylan was quiet and clean. They upgraded us to a suite an no additional cost. We were close enough to walk to Times Square and all the stores we wanted to visit. We walked to the Grayline bus stops.The library and park are a couple of blocks away. Grand Central Station is about 2 blocks away. It was very convienent to eating establishments. I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Near Grand Central Station

The hotel is one block from the subway stop and Grand Central Station. The room was clean and fairly new. Staff was very helpful. I didn't like that we had to call room service for ice.
