Dylan Hotel NYC

4.0 out of 5.0

As a chemist, I was intrigued by the hotel's history and the proximity to Grand Central Station was a plus for getting around the city. I was disappointed by the quality of the room and lack of amenities for the cost.

I travel often for work and have stayed at places for half this price, but in far better condition. For the amount that you're paying each night, they could do far better. The light fixtures in my room were old and wobbly, as was most of the furniture. The mattress was springy, like it was either low quality or from the past decade. The walls were stained cream color, with no artwork or natural lighting from the windows. The carpet was old and dark green and looked like it could have used a few more passes from the vacuum. And for some reason, maybe it's the cleaning solution they use, but the whole hotel, from the lobby to the room smelled like deodorant. Fairly sure that I'm never staying here again.

I really liked this hotel, it's close to Grand Central Station and is easy to walk to other attractions. The room was clean and a really good size and the staff was exceptionally friendly. Wifi was excellent, cable channels were a bit limited.

Ooh, Lord. This place was ... interesting. From the outside, the Dylan Hotel looks snazzy and exudes a certain NYC elegance to give it charm. ... But the rooms -- at least the one I stayed in -- was a different story. Upon first glance, my room looked clean and a little work, though expected given the hotel's age. I noticed a small bag with some items on the desk and thought it was some sort of welcome kit. I didn't dig into it because I had to meet family for dinner, so I turned off the bathroom light that had been on -- quickly noticing the used travel bottle of face wash and bar of soap on the ledge -- and went on my way. About 2.5 hours later, I came back to my room and noticed the bathroom light I turned off was back on, and the soap and face wash were gone. (Interesting.) I also noticed the "welcome bag" was missing from the desk, so I guess someone from the hotel used a key to enter my room while I wasn't there. Obviously, if someone left their bag, they need their bag ... but I felt very uncomfortable knowing someone was in my room -- without so much as giving a head's up -- with my stuff out and exposed. Getting ready for bed, I started to notice how this hotel was anything but nice. There was a random bandaid covering what looked like a smoke detector. The TV channels started going in and out. The bathroom vanity had major cracks. And, my personal favorite, there were random hairs inside my bed. I guess housekeeping made the bed but didn't change the sheet

very basic hotel for NYC. Ok. definitely convenient.

This hotel was right by most attractions in NYC and everything was a convenient walk. We ended up doing our shopping, attended Broadway shows, and ate at great restaurants all within a short distance. The elevators were always packed around the morning time so it was difficult to go down and had to wait for a long time. The hallways could be cleaner but the room was nice and clean. I would go back to stay.

Ok hotel... Nicely located, though hard to find as it doesn't really have a sign the is very visible. The night staff isn't very attentive and seem almost surprised to see you come in. In the winter they turn off the A/C completely, you do not have an option.

I enjoyed our stay here. This hotel was in a great location, close to grand central an several shops, bars and restuarants. Our only issue was that the room got warm and the AC wouldnt work. The front desk explained that that due to the winter season all AC units in the hotel were off. Although it wasnt hot being a bit warm was quite uncomfortable and this is definately something ill keep in mind when booking a hotel in NY in the future.

There were really cool brass plates in the sidewalk about every 10 yards with quotes and literary references on the way to the NY Public Library which was 2 blocks from the hotel. I loved these! The room was immaculate and of average size. The bed was comfortable, but you could not get the room temperature below a setting of 68 degrees-(actual temperature 74 degrees) which was a little too warm for our sleeping comfort. Only one glass was provided for 2 people and it was a beaker which was unique. Overall, it was a very comfortable stay for our 2 nights in New York.
