“One of the best small hotels in Manhattan”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The Dylan is at the top of my "short list" of small hotels in Manhattan.

The strongest points of this hotel are:

1. Great location less than two minute walk from Grand Central Station.

2. Superb staff! Both the hotel staff and restaurant staff went out of their way to be accommodating of several special requests that we had with respect to an impromptu five-hour business meeting.

3. The co-located restaurant, Benjamin's, offers outstanding food, reasonable prices, and flawless service. (The restaurant is very popular at lunch and dinner, so it pays to make a reservation.)

The hotel is located in the old Chemists Club building, and has preserved much of the original architectural charm while being nonetheless a very contemporary hotel. This means that the rooms, originally intended for short stays by Chemists Club members, tend to be small, but nonetheless comfortable.

There are no negatives to report.

Been there twice in a week. Had 2 different rooms both nice and clean. One much bigger then the other.
AC is by season, cold in the summer and hot air for winter. If you have a cold day in spring you might have problem.
Staff was very nice and helpful.
Will go there again.

Friendly atmosphere, nice and clean room, nice bathroom with a big shower. The hotel is well located next to the Central Station Terminal and Bryant Park. There is also a nice restaurant in the same building - Benjamin - with a nice and friendly atmosphere too and a very nice bar! We saw many New Yorkers there. The place is well known spot. I will have this hotel in mind the next time I'll visit New York!

Hotel is within easy walking distance from Grand Central. The NY Public Library and Bryant Park are right down the street. Times Square is also within walking distance. The rooms are small and a little worn around the edges but the location makes it worthwhile.

The building is well located but is just way too old - it just does not work. Rather resembles Fawlty Towers. They should be ashamed of the breakfast which is woeful. That said the staff are friendly and do there best, all except the breakfast manager who might benefit from going back to charm school

Room Tip: don't bother

Due to a bike event in NYC we couldn't get rooms at our usual favorite. Picked this one on location and price. Nothing glamorous, a little worn in spots, this was nevertheless clean and very friendly. Beds were very comfortable, bathroom was re-done in marble and shower was great. Layout was good for a NYC hotel. It is a European hotel and similar to a hotel I stayed in in Paris. Not as stylish as Americans are used to. Location was fabulous. Only complaint is we stayed three days and ran out of shampoo and conditioner. Soap was down to a sliver .
