I was neutral about the Dylan till my enforced stay in another NYC hotel. I was stranded in New York by the authorities over-reaction to an impending storm (Sandy). When I arrived at La Guardia, on Sunday, to get my return flight to UK, there was hardly a breeze blowing, yet all flights were cancelled. The weather remained mild for the next 12 hours. In my view, I was placed in danger by a very poor decision. I had to return to Manhattan but Dylan was full, so I had to accept any port in a storm - the New York Inn. The staff were friendly but the carpet was filthy, the shower was unusable and the room was tiny. On the plus side, it had a good TV and good WIFI. Final point - I am covered in bites! But back to the Dylan - compared to NY Inn it was very good; but compared to other 4 stars I've stayed in, it was no more than OK. The location (between Park and Madison; near Grand Central) is it's major positive, although I also found the bedroom a good size and clean. Negatives? Poor facilities and terrible WIFI. Nowadays good WIFI (it was weak even in the lobby) is a must-have. I was also disturbed by the "So what?" reaction of reception staff, when I returned from the airport. Fair enough they can't magic an empty room, but they didn't even offer to help me find an alternative. I had to use their pathetic WIFI to (very slowly) find a room. Not nice.
