We stayed at this hotel for five days. The room was very large and comfortable. The bed gave us a good night's rest and even the pull-out was quite comfortable. The jetted tub was nice after walking around all day! We found the staff to be extremely helpful and courteous - not sure why others felt they were rude. We... More

I have stayed at many hotels in NYC and this is my favorite. Not your usual small rooms but rather large rooms that can sleep a family of 4. Close to superb restaurants and shops is one major advantage and good access to the subway. The staff is very helpful and kind. Free wifi and breakfast. Don't miss Russ and... More

This hotel is beautifully decorated, and our room (Marx Brothers) was clean, a generous size with comfortable furnishings, and the terrace was fabulous for evening drinks and morning coffee (once you schlepped down to the lobby to get it). The problem here as many other reviewers indicate is deplorable customer service. When deciding what room to book, the person on... More

Thank you for your comments about our "beautiful hotel and it's decor", as well as the comfort level within your luxury category Marx Brothers guestroom. However, while you state your happiness about the comfort level, at the same time, you also expressed issues concerning the bathtub, the coffeemaker, and the staff. As my memory serves me correct, in accordance with... More

Not your average big brand hotel, but instead a quirky, idiosyncratic place with oodles of character. The rooms are good sized, well serviced, and with good amenities - including a fresh coffee maker, our room had a balcony and a view of the Williamsburgh Bridge. The reception is dominated by two strong New York ladies - Lauren & Louise both... More

I stayed at the blue moon with my family for about a week at the end of August. We all had a fantastic time and were so glad we chose to stay here rather than in one of the more typical hotels that dominate the New York hotel scene. The blue moon is absolutely filled with character, from the wooden... More

My two friends and I planned a trip to New York, and made reservations to stay at the Blue Moon Hotel. After checking in, we discovered that the keys to our room weren't working and so we were given an alternate room. The second room had one full bed and two pull out beds. However, the pull out beds were... More

After reading the reviews before my stay, I was expecting a not-so-great experience at the Blue Moon. But having been warned ahead of time about the eccentricities of the place, I was able to make the most out of my visit. It is not luxurious for sure, but accept it for what it is and you won't be disappointed. It... More

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

During your length of stay in the Molly Picon Guestroom (1 of 2 absolutely gorgeous penthouse suites at the hotel) not once did you and your companions complain to management of any concerns. Further, your unwarranted comment about staffers using the downstairs bathroom--our staff happens to be more seasoned and more professional than they are given credit for. The two... 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.

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.
