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.

Never staying here again, nor recommending to friends

Started out with friendly staff then downhill from there. Checked into my room late at night and just wanted a clean comfortable room. The room was damp even though the AC was running. There was no temp control, I was freezing at night especially with the dampness. Bathroom countertop was tiny. Not much space to put your toiletries. The blow dryer in my room didn't work so I called the front desk. Someone was sent at least 10 mins later. First assumed that it was user error and explained I had to reset the power outlet, which I did, many times. After confirming that I was right then they apologized and retrieved another dryer. Tried to use the gym in the morning but my room card didn't work. Had to have front desk reset my card. Little things do add up. Hotel management, please try harder.

Dylan was a dissapointment

There was a construction project right outside our window and the noise was horrible right up until one oclock in the morning. The staff should have offered us a room off the street but they only wanted to let us know that the construction was not their fault. This is a terrible lapse of management, the hotel was not full at all and it says that management is not at all attendent to guests. We will never stay at the Dylan again. We have traveled to NYC often over the last 12 years and intend to continue doing so but have learned a hard lesson on relying on the hotel management to be aware of the local conditions.

4star price 1 star service

On a hot sticky day all I wanted was to get into a room,out of my suit and a glass of ice water. Did not see any of the above until 45 minutes after my arrival. Yes my tie was undone but do not treat me as a slub off the street.

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!

Not great

I found some members of staff to be a little rude. The room was unclean... I have no idea what some of the substances were on some of the furniture and didn't want to know. The bathroom wasn't in great condition.

My review of Dylan Hotel

The air conditioning was not working, and it was difficult sleeping. Otherwise, it would have been acceptable.

So / So

Great service, nice location. The tv did not work well for the entire stay and they could not fix it. Fitness center was nice to have but it was the smallest room ever. Still worth it but not special.

Rate based on price

The location could not be better, right at Grand Central but on a quiet block, across from the Library Walk which is well worth seeing. The staff were friendly and the amenities were decent. I liked the black out window shades and the iHome. The bathroom toiletries were good, the free in room coffee was even good. I arrived at 1:30 and I was able to check in immediately. But the things I didn't like determine my rating. As a background, I only stay in nice hotels, but I do my research to get the best rate. I expect a spotless room for 200 bucks! The bathroom was NOT spotless, but the worst was the bedskirt--it had a water stain around the edge! Gross! I was reminded via a note under the door that the time was changing and Id lose an hour. The staff were not optimistic about a late check out, but even if I could have secured the late check out? There was no point because the housekeepers were VERY LOUDLY knocking on each room before 10 (which felt like 9 because of the time change). Sure, they left my door alone, but since I forgot to place the 'do not disturb' on my door, I suspect that I had no neighbours, they just wanted to make sure everyone was up and checked out. Terrible! So, for 200 bucks I expect a peaceful morning and bedding that isn't stained. Call me picky.
