The Dylan Hotel for The Perfect Midtown Manhattan Hotel Location Located in the city's vibrant core in midtown Manhattan, the best of New York City is just outside our front door. We're only a short walk from Grand Central Station, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Empire State, Fifth Avenue Shopping and the great restaurants of Manhattan. Only a few minutes away from New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center Surrounded by excitement. Cradled in comfort. That's what a stay at the Dylan Hotel in New York City is all about.
Dylan's interiors, by Jeffrey Beers, mark a deliberate departure from both the too stark and overly hip designs prevalent in the high-end boutique market, all in the 107 rooms of the hotel. Beers has created a timeless look for the property that redefines opulence for a new age while preserving the landmark-quality architecture of the 1903 Beaux-Arts structure.
The hotel features rich tones like amethyst, jade, emerald, opal and amber. Fabrics are soft and luxurious. The grandeur of the Dylan's public areas is evident from the moment one passes through the entryway.
Please Note: ID or passport and a credit card are required at check in as a guarantee.

Overall a very good deal

Overall this was a good experience - nicely appointed, clean room. It was much smaller than on my original stay. Staff were very accommodating in getting me into my room early. Room had access to a great patio - unfortunately it was rainy & cool so couldn't take in the views! Only real disappointment was that the bed had no headboard and no reading lights.

Great location

The hotel is in a good location and handy for Midtown attractions and Broadway. The staff were very helpful, especially the concierge who handled the valet parking. For central NY, the room size was reasonable and the room was pleasantly quite without any excessive traffic or city noise. Breakfast in the adjacent restaurant was ok, but nothing special. I would use this hotel again.

Good Location

My stay at the Dylan Hotel in NYC was relatively comfortable. I was only in my hotel room for a couple of hours over one night but the accommodations were more than adequate. The room was somewhat small but it was clean and quiet. The hotel is also very conveniently located 2 blocks from Grand Central where you can get the subway or easily catch a cab. I did not have much interaction with the staff other than at check-in and check-out but they all seemed friendly and helpful.

Times Square is only a short walk to the west, or shopping along Madison/5th Avenues only a moderate walk to the north.

Near Grand Central Station

The hotel is one block from the subway stop and Grand Central Station. The room was clean and fairly new. Staff was very helpful. I didn't like that we had to call room service for ice.

Very nice

When I checked in they were not able to get us in early but when it was check in time they were able to upgrade us to a king size bed for free. Well maybe it was free. A very nice hotel and the staff was great. The only thing that was a problem was a 4.30 charge for something that they cant explain maybe it was for the mints that i took from the check in desk.

My review of Dylan Hotel

The air conditioning was not working, and it was difficult sleeping. Otherwise, it would have been acceptable.

Great Location

The Dylan Hotel was very well appointed. There were orchids and flower arrangements throughout the hotel. The lighting and decor was very nice. The staff was very pleasant to deal with. We got upgraded to our surprise. The location was wonderful. We enjoy walking to where we were going to shows and restaurants.

Great location, decent amenities

The Dylan hotel is just a block or so from Grand Central Station, and two blocks from The New York Public Library. You can't do much better than that. Rooms are large for Manhattan hotels; there was a large shower but no tub. The bathroom sink was poorly configured and splashed regularly. Closets and bureau were about average. The restaurant is a steakhouse, Benjamin, and is very expensive for dinner. Lunch and breakfast are high average for such a well-located hotel. It's disappointing that the room-service dinner menu has so few reasonably-priced options, meaning the entrees are all quite expensive. Do yourself a favor and patronize the excellent food options on the lower level in Grand Central.
