As an ex-New Yorker who moved abroad just six months after the towers fell back in 2001, I was pleasantly surprised to discover The Blue Moon Hotel while looking for a place to stay during a visit to my old stomping grounds last October. At first, I was a bit turned off by the idea of staying at a so-called... More

My husband I stayed at the Blue Moon for two nights two weeks ago, and chose it due to location. It was a disappointing experience. As others have written, it is not properly cleaned -- the previous guests' garbage still in the room, floors not vacuumed, book shelf very dusty, bathroom floor not swept, holes in the sheets. We literally... More

I decided to try the Blue Moon because reviews called it quirky etc. and I normally really like quirky. When we arrived, the staff was very nice and our room was ready early. However, I did not feel comfortable in the room. It seemed very shabby. It was just not my taste. It was clean, however, the shower door on... More

I can tell you this is much more than a hotel. You need to understand the only think lacking here is a martini bar / coffee shop period. Otherwise I must say this is not just a hotel its stepping back in time so you can feel the real thrill of NYC. I mean if you want to stay at... More

BlueMoonManager, General Manager at Blue Moon Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind words. You are correct that there is a grave contempt some people have for things they cannot comprehend. Perhaps they need a little Southern sensibility. More importantly, guests like you were the reason I spent 5 years to create the Blue Moon. As artist and developer I’m pleased we could provide a means for you... More

My fiancé and I stayed here at the end of December for 5 nights. We would certainly recommend this hotel. We found the location ideal, as it as only a 2 minute walk away from the subway station on Delancy street. Saying this though, we often walked up to midtown/ uptown as we didn't want to miss anything en route!... More

Hard to believe these harsh reviews about the staff here. We had quite the opposite experience. Lauren, Louise and Javier were awesome. We had many great conversations with them and they went above and beyond to help us in any way we needed. The hotel is in a pretty good location and even better if you want to be close... More

I was visiting another business on the lower east side, when i saw this boutique hotel. I walked in and the lobby was beautiful. I have since gotten to know the owner and I know he is dedicated to producing a wonderful customer experience.

The woman with the penciled on eyebrows was rude, insulting and unhelpful. Our room had coarse filthy sheets, an unvaccumed rug, TV with no sound, broken curtains, bloodstained sheets etc.... The night club behind the property blasted music till four am. We asked for clean linens and new blankets and never received them. The breakfast was clemintines and a big... More

This review does not concur with any of the life experience here at the hotel, and as such, reads as a 'vendetta' of sorts. More

I booked a stay for a colleague at the Blue Moon Hotel in NY. I used Expedia and prepaid. She got to the hotel and they claimed it was not paid for and requested her credit card for payment. She insisted it was paid for and they eventually found her reservation. They refunded her card but she did not receive... More

With regard to your review, it is highly disingenuous to be able to write a review when in fact you did not stay at the property--Trip Advisor is supposedly designed to reflect a guest's opinion of their stay, not of a colleague who did not stay. That said, the guest was pampered as is everyone of our other guests, she... More

We stayed here because it is just across the street from our daughter's apartment, so for us the location was perfect! The room and bed had everything we needed and were very comfortable, if a little on the tired side. There was a breakfast buffet but it seemed very limited and we chose to partake of the many wonderful breakfast... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
