At the beginning of August, I stayed with some friends for 2 nights in the Molly Picon room. The hotel itself is charming, full of character, beautiful architecture and so much potential. All of this is wasted on the rude and gruff attitude you'll get from the older lady on the staff. In all honesty, I think hospitality is the... More

I stayed at the Blue Moon Hotel for four nights and it was like being home. Lauren and Louise and the entire staff were just wonderful, and couldn't do enough to make my stay one of the best vacations I've ever had. I stayed in the Eddie Cantor suite and had a balcony with views of the Freedom Tower, Empire... More

First, a huge THANK YOU to Lauren who greeted us upon arrival. She and her colleague, Javier, could not have been more welcoming and gracious. We stayed in the John Garfield room which was inviting and cozy. The room has a balcony and we marveled that this former tenement had been converted so beautifully into this charming boutique hotel.

My daughter and I had the privilege to stay overnight at the Blue Moon Hotel. This was our first time here and some friends had recommended it to us. What a lovely experience! Lauren, at the front desk was so warm and welcoming. She checked to see if we would need any directions or suggestions for anything we wanted to... More

A friend and I stayed a night in mid August on a Living Social offer. I like history and the idea of staying a night in a renovated tenement appealed to me. In addition, neither of us had experience with the Lower East Side and wanted to visit the neighborhood. First, the positives. The building's architecture and appointments were well... More

We are proud of our spacious rooms, architectural details and, yes, our guests, just like yourself, always state how comfortable the beds are. Also, as you booked your stay with a Living Social Voucher, you had the distinct opportunity to stay in one of our fabulous Deluxe... More

Went to NYC for a night out on the town and a nice place to stay...this is NOT that "nice place to stay". The walls are lined with dust. No vacuuming done, AC doesn't work, window on balcony door had hand prints all over it, the ice bucket had coffee stains on it, the comforters are stained, when you leave... More

Thank you for staying at our stunning boutique hotel. We take the same initiative and pride in the cleanliness and comfort for our guests, in as much as if we were also guests here. That's fact. The policy at the hotel concerning leaving guestroom keys at the front desk is for the guest's benefit. The hotel is open 24/7 and... More

I loved the layout of the room, the location of the hotel, etc... what spoiled my brief stay was the incredibly rude woman who worked the front desk. First of all, she took a phone call while she was dealing with me and dealt with them first. Second, when I complained about something in my room, she asked me what... More

Whenever a guest checks out after their stay, we always make it a point to say "have a safe trip home". We were very pleased that you stayed with us, and hope you will do so when you come back to NYC. More

I see no reason to stay at this place. It isn't cheap and there is much better for the same price. Biggest complaint: Our room was so hot I was sweating in bed. There is no temp control. There is some AC, but they control it at the front desk and it was set so low we were miserable. I... More

Your review was the first I heard about your air conditioning issue in your guestroom. There certainly is a/c temperature control in your room. To wit, your comment about the bed is also the very first of it's kind here. In fact, the raves I get from first time guests as well as our seasoned repeat guests (there are many,... More
