My wife had picked out three hotels in The Lower East side and I was left to make a final choice while she was busy with work. I chose The Blue Moon because I knew it's quaint appeal would please my wife.
Arrived after a long and tedious flight (delayed due to mechanical faults, but better safe and late eh) And was pleasantly surprised on arrival. Quaint yet charming and according to my better half ( who had visted NYC previously) the hotel was "Typical and authentic New York"
The hotel is located in a quiet road, but near to F train subway and several good restaurants (see other reviews) A brisk shower followed by an early dinner, then a good nights sleep fwere all that were needed to try and recharge the batteries for the next days adventures.
A coffee, bagels and fruit breakfast is served between 7 and 10 and was enough to start the day.
Room was clean and comfortable, good bed and bathroom facilities.
Staff were very helpful, and as always it pays to ask with a smile.
If you're looking for chain hotel with cold efficiency then I would suggest that The Blue Moon is not for you, but if it's history and authenticity your looking for then you've lucked in.
