This hotel is very nice and in a great location for those of us who want quiet. Just by alphibet city, just the other side of Delancey, by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, it is welcoming, clean and comfortable. There is no restuarant (plenty around the corner) and a host a jewish pastries for breakfast. This hotel is ideal...

We arrived here after an exhausting trip from Australia and were thrilled to find that it has all the charm the pictures suggest. This is a great hotel if you're looking for something with unique character (which we were). The staff were friendly and accommodating. The Duke Ellington room was gorgeous - the rooms are a great size and the...

Lower East Side is a funky and fun place to be. Hotel rooms were large by NY standards. Breakfast served on paper plates and paper cups which given the price of the hotel is not acceptable. Eccentric service. Good size rooms. Hotel building was in old tenement building which was beautiful but unfortunately done up by someone with poor taste...

Although taste is subjective, this review does not concur with the awards the Blue Moon has received for preservation, art and design. It is likewise out of sync with the hundreds of appreciative reviews we have received on TripAdvisor. The rooms contain period-appropriate furniture of solid wood, wrought-iron beds, Palatial Crest Pillowtop mattresses which are covered with mattress covers for...

This hotel was all it claimed. Comfortable and friendly, everyone was pleasant and helpful. Paul welcomed us with a much-needed glass of wine after a long, unplanned tour of the city, courtesy of our limo driver!!! Rooms were immaculate, tastefully decorated and offered lots of privacy. Great view from our room, walking distance to wonderful restaurants, bars, Chinatown, SoHo, Little...

My friends and I came to NYC to celebrate bachelorette party. We wanted it to be an unforgettable experience for years to remember. It was very unforgettable but not quite the way we wanted it to be thanks to disappointment with our hotel but most of all a horrible customer service experience... We researched hotels online long before coming and...

This review does not concur with our previous reviews. It is a fact that our rooms are well-appointed, immaculate, period-appropriate, with historical details, state of the art services, large bathrooms with deep tubs, designed c. 1920 motif. Several clarifications are in order: The room was not $500, it was approximately $425. The first question they asked upon arrival was "Can...

My partner and I recently stayed for 5 nights at Blue Moon, this was our first trip to New York and we stayed at various locations around the city and this hotel was our favourite.

I'm going to start off with my complaints first....there was a man working the front desk upon our departure who really should choose another career where he is not the front line to the public. He was miserable & could care less about assisting us in anyway. I simply asked him to assist us with foot directions to get to...

We grew up in New York City and to even want to stay at the Blue Moon, you'd have to be curious about what has happened to the Lower East Side. The neighborhood is not for everyone. It is old and farily dirty, but a moment away from both Chinatown and Little Italy. Greenwich Village is about a 15-20 minute...

We stayed for two nights and it was a very nice room. Plenty big for my husband, teenage daughter and her friend. Clean and nice. We paid extra for a balcony which was a bit of a waste since it faced a wall and had no view at all. Breakfast was included. Rather lackluster but hey, bagels got the day...

The primary reason for giving this hotel 4 stars was it's outstanding value w.r.t. other NY hotels. Plus it's location in the Lower East Side and the excellent overall service and friendliness of the staff. The rooms were a little sparse and the hotel looks as though it is going through some renovation. My biggest "complaint" was the street noise,...

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
