U.S. News Review

The Dylan Hotel's neutral color scheme and lofty 11-foot ceilings, provide guests with a tranquil, urban oasis in which to unwind. All of the 107 guest suites feature simplistic, sleek decor with vibrant jewel-toned fabrics and extravagant touches like cozy bathrobes, minibars and LCD TVs. However, some recent visitors say the furnishings appear slightly dated and are on the smaller side. Others say the hotel's friendly staff and prime location  just steps away from Bryant ParkGrand Central Station and other key city landmarks — is well worth the steep nightly rates. Travelers also praise the succulent steaks served at the hotel's Benjamin Steakhouse, citing the excellent fare as a reason to return.

Critic Reviews


“A 1903 chemists' club-turned-107-room-Midtown East boutique, the Dylan offers sound service and striking design, but rooms are small, dimly lit, and a bit worn. ... The chemistry-lab setting comes complete with graduated drinking beakers and a petri dish for the soap.”
