The Dylan Hotel is a joke as a 5 star establishment. The decor is very dated .. Think the paramount hotel in NYC circa 1993 meets the vampire Lestat on a dole-binger budget. It's shabby, rundown, broken, and just plain tacky. The bathrooms smell like ashtrays because of the ventilation system, and the windows over looking the smokers balconies... it permeates the rest of the room. Tiles are cracked and broken. Shower heads don't function. and there is little or no counter space to place toiletries. Front desk staff are helpful but tomato red sweater vests over black dress shirts remind one of a saddest Mc Donald's worker.. staff with a red complexion look eternally mad because of the shade of red in the uniform. Location is isolated slightly, though on a pretty street and easy to give cab directions. Again I really can't believe this is a five star hotel .. Yuck. 3 stars at best. As such it would be right on course, however I wouldn't have chosen it. I like my five stars to mean something, and three stars don't even register for me, as this hotel shouldn't have. ( as an aside I had prepaid and booked a second stay here at the end of my trip, since it was too late to book something else I returned, the 2nd room was much better than the first, as far as smell)
