We've stayed here a couple of times and really enjoyed it. The rooms are great and quite big. The staff is always friendly and the bagels in the morning were top notch. The location is interesting; not much right near there, but a subway stop is a few blocks away and can get you anywhere.

We are so thrilled that you keep coming back to the Blue Moon Hotel! Each of our rooms range in size with historic details to ensure that every visit with us is a new experience.

This is a nice Hotel in the Heart of the Lower East Side.. The building is an original tenement building that has been redone in a very retro way. We stayed in the Tommy Dorsey Room which had a small balcony that overlooked the Williamsburg bridge. Clean , close to Soho , shopping, nightlife. If you want to stay in...

This is not a cookie cutter hotel chain. It is in a fun location, off of Delancey St, 2 blocks from Essex St (and market), and the area is kinda funky, good coffee shop and walkable to east village. It is best suited for those intrepid souls who know NY and/or want to explore the fun, non-touristy areas other than...

We are pleased to hear how much “counrygal” enjoyed the views from the Marx Brothers room, a huge custom room designed with historical details in a period appropriate fashion. The spacious bathroom with a large, deep tub exemplifies a 1930’s grace. The balcony is 300 square feet and overlooks the Williamsburg Bridge. Most of our guests have concurred it’s incredibly...

I would stay here again in a minute. So not your cookie-cutter hotel-- many of the features are architectural details preserved and re-used from the building as it was in the days of the former immigrants. Right next door is the Tenement Museum with one of the best gift shops ever for NY-themed gifts, and many books about New York...

Blue Moon is on a quiet side street, immaculately clean and cozy decor .. there are no room numbers, each is named and themed after a classic comic .. We stayed in Sid Caesar which I think is the smallest room; still it was roomy with a queen bed, small fridge and two large windows. Bathroom was bright white tile,...

For all the time and artistry the owner put into this hotel, he scrimped on hiring employees dedicated to customer service. It is an alien concept to the front desk. I've never experienced anything like it at any other hotel, ever. Like we were an imposition. We arrived early and exhausted and asked if we could check in. Instead we...

Miss Azuree_05 arrived at 9 AM. After greeting and welcoming her to our hotel, I reviewed her reservation. The room was not yet available since the previous guest had not checked out. It was 2 hours prior to our checkout time of 11 AM. I informed her that our check-in time is 3 PM, but if the room was ready...

COME NOW, Mr. Pakdog! Concerning your comments relative to "no services, no food, and no advice", I must respond in kind. There is a Continental Breakfast provided to all guests each day. The bagels and cream cheese alone are worth a new booking. Do you have ruggelach cakes in Oslo? We provided what are considered the finest pastries on the...

Blue Moon is a renovated historic hotel with lots of charm and warmth. The rooms are larger than the average in New York, clean, comfortable and decorated with antiques.

We stayed at the Blue Moon because we wanted a different experience from the touristy midtown/Times Square stuff.

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.
