I stayed at the blue moon with my family for about a week at the end of August. We all had a fantastic time and were so glad we chose to stay here rather than in one of the more typical hotels that dominate the New York hotel scene. The blue moon is absolutely filled with character, from the wooden frontage to the interesting period furniture and decor and the staff as well. Lauren, on the front desk was really helpful and friendly to us, and made the place feel very much like visiting a friend rather than just staying in a faceless hotel. Our room, which was at the front of the hotel on the fourth floor, was huge and had a lovely big bedstead. As the room looked onto orchard street it wasn't quiet, but I imagine very few places in New York are quiet! There was a nice little bathroom, as well as a basin in the room, plus coffee making facilities and a fridge. It was also useful to have a safe. The hotel is in an excellent area in the lower east side. Orchard street has a lot of excellent bars and cafés, you are super close to both Chinatown and little Italy, and also very near to at least two metro stations which can get to you to both the financial district and broadway in hardly anytime. There are also plenty of little grocery stores about to stock up on essentials. Directly opposite the hotel is the tenement museum which is well worth a look, if only to give you an insight into the blue moon hotel! Overall I would definitely recommend this place.
