Without doubt a fantastic location right on Grand Central's doorstep, this Hotel is serious need of renovation, don't be fooled by the well appointed lobby and great use of photography on the web site. this is far from 4 star luxury
Our original room on the 16th floor had fixtures hanging off the wall and electrical socket loose, furnishings that were so old the handles came off, and a shower that you had to run around in to get wet. With the winter heating system in full effect the room was like a greenhouse!
To be fair the staff promptly agreed to move us to another room which was better, cooler, larger but still tired. Don't expect a view unless you are on a high floor.
The wifi was slow, but at least it was free throughout the hotel. Whilst we were there only one elevator worked.
Overall I was pretty disappointed and wont be rushing back - sorry!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dylan Hotel in Manhattan unites tradition and modernity exquisitely and with a contemporary elegance that captivates our guests. The building is very emblematic, first having been the residence of the Welsh writer, Dylan Thomas, and later the headquarters of the New York Pharmacists Club. The Dylan Hotel combines the classical lounges and guest rooms of the period with ambiances and areas in contemporary design. We are a non-stop hotel, because the Big Apple never stops. For this reason, the gym and the business centre are open 24 hours a day. ... more less
