Dylan Hotel NYC4.0 out of 5.0

Its unfortunate because this hotel is in a great location! However the Dylan needs to weary. With the amount of other hotel options available in and around this area customers simply don't need to accept the shortcomings of this hotel. Currently, as a couple or family forget it.....there are much better options for the same money. My personal experience. The staff would just nod and agree to the questions/request i had when speaking to them but not actually follow it through. Room Was Freezing and Air-con did not work correctly. Could not turn it off or turn it up so had a freezing room the entire stay. channels on the TV didn't work all the time. Windows did not keep out any sound. Nor did the adjoining door which only worked well as a visual barrier but that's about it! could hear everything through the door as if they were in the room with us. so sleep was not the best. Carpet, Windows, furniture could all do with a refresh. Booked a taxi with reception for our departure 2 days in advanced. Double checked the morning of departure it was booked and was told it was. No Taxi arrived as none of the staff ever book it.... and they all blamed each other.
We stayed April 14-23. We booked on a third party website and pre-paid. Two days after checking in, I noticed we were double charged for the room on our credit card. When talking to the staff at the front desk, they couldn't do anything and had to talk to a manger. When we came back later in the day to see the result, the staff member "had no idea what we were talking about, and said there is no way they could have double charged us". He opened our room file and said there was a receipt for a refund on the double booking. The temperature guage in the room wasn't working. The room was between 64F and 69F the whole trip, even though we had it set for 74F. The bathroom we had was marble/slate flooring so it was quite cold. The bathroom doesn't have an exhaust fan, so when you use the shower, it stays foggy and moist for several hours after your done. On our last day we had a formal engagement to go to after check out. The iron in our room wasn't working. I took it down to the front desk, and the staff member said he would send a new one up to the room. 20 minutes later, no iron yet. I tried calling front desk 4 times, but no answer. Just kept ringing and ringing. After 1 hour a housekeeping manager knocked on the door to see if we were checking out. I told him we were, but needed an iron. He said he would bring one up... 30 minutes later we were leaving the room - no iron. When we got down to the front desk, I asked what happened to the Iron and he said "oh it didn't make it up there?" No it didn't... when asked about why they didn't answer the front desk phone, he stated "they were really busy". TV's in the room were extremely small, we didn't even use it. The cans of pop in the fridge were $4 each and the bottles of water were $5. Bit on the pricey side. Everything on the floor echos. The gap between the door and the floor is huge, allowing for noise to travel very easily. Everytime someone got off the elevator or were talking in the hallway it was quite loud. Woke me up a few times during the night. Road noise wasn't a problem at all, contrary to some of the other reviews posted here. No face cloths were ever left in our bathroom and we had it made up 3 times. Upon check in, the hotel staff member provided us with the wrong internet login code. I called him back to confirm, and they gave the wrong one still. I had to call the hotel's third party customer service line to figure out that the password they were giving out was simply wrong. This took about 20 minutes. The best part of this hotel is the central location, and the Stout bar located on the same block. Strbucks and CVS Pharmacy are very close by for the essential needs.
Several days ago my wife and I stayed at the Dylan Hotel NYC. It was very convenient location-right in the center of New York City where we could walk to Times Square, Empire State Building, NY Public Library... It also was very helpful that right on the corner was a Starbucks. And it wwas next to The Benjamin Steakhouse -high class place to have a nice dinner. But the person who made the biggest difference was the person behind the desk the night we arrived. His name is Qasim. He was very professional, polite and very informative. It was great he had patience to answer all our questions. We placed couple of small requests and his answer always was "No problem, I will take care of it." It was great to start our stay in The Dylan Hotel with a big smile thanks to Qasim and the entire staff of the hotel. Good Job!!!!
Easy in an out, well maintained hotels and larger than average rooms for Manhattan standards. Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of eating options just around the block. Grand Central is a great place to hang out when the weather is bad, including a chance to walk about
Arrived on Friday end of March, and seriously question why I booked this place. From pictures and other reviews I guessed it would have been good. Or decent at least, but no I wouldn't come back to this place. I entered and no one noticed me despite two people behind the reception. One girl barely spoke English and didn't understand what her colleague asked her to do. My reservation that was made through booking.com, had apparently not registered despite my confirmation, and so, they couldn't find me in the register. I had also requested a room as high up as possible, but out of these, I got a room on the third floor...with - wait for it - NO WINDOW !. I have never been this depressed in my life. The room size was good, it was clean and the bathroom was surprisingly nice in white marble, but the fact the room had no window made even me who is normally fine with most faults, claustrophobic. The A/C made more than a loud noise and the fire alarm was flashing constantly in the night in the ceiling, and so, no sleep was possible. It was like having a seizure in this bunker. The location is good. But that's where it ends. The staff upon shcek out barely looked at me, handed me my bill without asking for me to review it or if I had had anything from the mini-bar. I guess they didn't care. And then shoved a "Trip advisor"- printed card in my face asking me to rate them. And hereeee I am. I will not go back.I only ask for a few things when I stay in a hotel, friendly staff, good light, and good location...they had the location. It needs more than a revamp this joint !
Central location, but still in an area that's not too noisy and busy. The service was good and I found all staff to be friendly and helpful. Would stay again and recommend to others. I found we got a lot of value for the price. It's an excellent spot to explore NY from and the room was more than comfortable.
A long delayed posting on my NYE visit to NYC and the Dylan. Great location, wonderful and helpful staff. Very nice room and yes, update should be coming but comfortable and nice marble bathroom with walk in shower. I was pleasantly surprised to return to my room on New Year's Eve and find the housekeeper had hand written me a note wishing me Happy New Year! Very Classy!
This hotel needs a revamp now. Lobby dimly lite and shabby. Front desk employees unfriendly and seemed irritated. Room and bathroom dirty and dinghy. Great location but would not stay there again unless they renovate
Very central, only about 10 minutes from Times Square. New York is at your feet as soon as you step out. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean. We did not eat at the restaurant in the hotel but it seemed nice. We would stay again.
This was in a great location. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was large and cold but was provided a space heater. The TV channels were not the best variety but we weren't there to just sit in our room and watch TV.
