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 windows that faced the street were so high I couldn't look out them without stepping up on the arm of the couch. The one window that was at normal height overlooked nothing much. But again, we had a lot of room which is a change from the usual NYC hotels. I believe the room next door was empty so I cannot speak to the sound proofing. The continental breakfast was slim but the bagels were fresh. When they ran out of bagels they replenished with those awful store bought bagels. Would have been ticked if I arrived late and was stuck with those nasty things. But I have to say the staff was incredibly friendly and they really made the place work for us. The entry way/seating area was casual and set up living room style. We hung out there at different times of the day (there was a group of us and would collect in this sitting area) and found it very comfortable. We really liked the location. I still think the price was out of whack but in the end we enjoyed our stay.
