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

We had a fabulous stay, the hotel staff were extremely helpful - the lady at the front desk gave us lots of tips & info on the local area & free times for museums, arranged airport transport, etc. No problem with air conditioning in the rooms, bed very comfortable. Good size room & value for money - particularly if you've... 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

I liked the look of the hotel, but making an honest booking seems to be difficult. I had hoped to log on to a web site see a price and make the booking. Well like they say "you got two hopes and Bob's dead" The price was shown in UK Pounds and seemed fine, right up until after I had... More

I booked a room here because I needed to be on the lower east side and didn’t want to pay the $400 a night for the Bowery Hotel. This renovated tenement is oozing with personality and charm. Rooms don’t have numbers, but names of jazz musicians. I was in the Duke Ellington. From the out spoken hostess (the owner, I... More

Such a pleasant place. Nice size rooms pleasing decor, free breakfast at a good price. And the location...across the street from the Tenement Museum, good restaurants all around, and the subway just 2 blocks away. A friendly staff greeting you with a glass of wine and willingness to answer any questions. Altogether a gem of a place

If you just need a place to sleep, don't choose Blue Moon. If your want the accomodation to be a part of your experience of New York, you have to try Blue Moon. The style is old Manhattan luxery, and compelely done with old furniture, spacial rooms and spectacular views of Manhattan. We had a luxery room at 8 level,... More

Staff was friendly and attentive. Louis made us feel very welcome when we checked in. Rooms were comfortable and felt much more "homey" than your typical hotel room. I have already recommended your hotel to family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

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.
