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.

Dylan was a dissapointment

There was a construction project right outside our window and the noise was horrible right up until one oclock in the morning. The staff should have offered us a room off the street but they only wanted to let us know that the construction was not their fault. This is a terrible lapse of management, the hotel was not full at all and it says that management is not at all attendent to guests. We will never stay at the Dylan again. We have traveled to NYC often over the last 12 years and intend to continue doing so but have learned a hard lesson on relying on the hotel management to be aware of the local conditions.

Great Midtown Location

Love the location- Lots of noise though with construction outside all night long. Rooms are adequately sized but not glamorous- may just be their "style".

Great location for the price

The rooms are small but adequate. The service was good. My TV had issues but they corrected them. Heating was quiet. European style accessories.

Spacious room, nice staff, but...

Friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms with high ceilings, and complementary Internet access made this a pleasant stay for us. The hotel has an interesting history a nice motif, and lots of good ideas, but falls short on the details, though most of the details didn't affect us much. The bathroom was large, but the marble bathroom floor was dangerously slippery, both when dry and wet. The phones didn't work (had cell), the smoke alarm was chirping (they removed it), the iron didn't work, knobs on furniture were loose, only one bar of soap (we could deal), only two pillows (they provided more on request), one towel hanger missing.

Great Experience, Great Location

After Orbitz booking, I checked at other sites & was a little worried about this hotel. I had read bad reviews about the AC not working in the summer. Turns out it was only in the lobby. I shouldn't have worried! Each room had individual controls. Service people were great & helpful. Location was superb! From Grand Central Station, you have many, many options of different trains, so transportation was great. Also, the stop for buses going directly to JFK & LaGuardia are only 1/2 blk away. We had a fabulous time & found the hotel to be lovely. Not too fancy, but who wants to stay in the hotel if you go to NYC? We will stay here again.

So / So

Great service, nice location. The tv did not work well for the entire stay and they could not fix it. Fitness center was nice to have but it was the smallest room ever. Still worth it but not special.

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.
