We stayed at the Blue Moon for two nights. We stayed in the Duke Ellington room. First the good: Nice staff, friendly and helpful. The Hotel was relatively clean in appearance. Good location in lower Ease Side Manhattan. Unique entrance and decor. Now the disappointment: No one asked how we enjoyed our stay. They seemed to be in a hurry... More

Had a chance a spend time at the blue moon with a friend and it's truly a special place. Calvin and other hotel staff go out of their way to make sure guests are taken care of. If you're looking for a fun and friendly boutique style hotel, this would be an excellent choice. The location is amazing.

Booked a room a month ago at the Blue Moon for Valentines Day and were planning on meeting friends from PA. Because of the continued snow in our area, I called 48 hours in advance to cancel. (All other NYC hotels it is 24 hours notice). We were not going to make it to NYC so I thought we could... More

We had a GREAT experience at the Blue Moon! The hotel itself was warm and welcoming. It's not a luxury hotel, but it truly made you feel like you were in New York. We could have stayed at any big name hotel, but those are the same no matter what city/state you're in. Blue Moon is unique and makes it... More

Be sure to read the fine print when making a reservation. We were scheduled to stay two nights but had to change plans because of a snow storm and they charged us anyway. Also tried to charge us a third night because I cancelled 72 hours in advance but not before 3PM that day. The following are their "terms" from... More

Blue Moon is a funny place. We stayed 2 nights and at first I was a bit put out by the tiredness of the building, given the price. The place was pretty worn, including our towels, which came complete with a hole in them. That said, we warmed up to it. The room was rather large and roomy. The two... More

This hotel was conveniently located for our needs. Fairly priced. Friendly service. That's really all the positive I've got. On the negative side, The noise from both the streets of Manhattan and from others sleeping on the same floor makes it impossible to sleep with any consistency and that is due to the lack of properly insulated walls and windows...

Just back from an enjoyable weeks stay in the Blue Moon. We were shocked at how expensive hotel rooms are in New York and had to book the basic, pied a terre room as we really couldn't afford any of the others - so no balcony or whirlpool bath for us :( However we did have a lovely big, comfortable...

This is a great little hotel. We had a Deluxe level room, fifth floor with an awesome little balcony. Perfect for a family travelling with a teenager as it had a nice sleeper bed with a trundle, a table and chairs, a fridge stocked with drinks and a microwave. Two closets and more than enough storage space. Big, updated bathroom.... More

This is a small, friendly hotel located in a remodeled tenement building, in what used to be an immigrant neighborhood. The staff was very helpful and friendly, always available to chat and suggest places to go.The room we had was huge. It was called the Fanny Brice, after an old movie star, and had a large living room with a... More
