Address: 100 Orchard Street, New York City, 10002, United States

Star rating:
3 star hotel

3.5

A kitschy and retro marvel in the heart of New York City's "hipsterville".

Once a tenement but transformed into a 22-room hotel in 2005, The Blue Moon is a Lower East Side retro marvel. Kitschy doesn't even begin to describe the endless amount of styles that can be found inside its doors. If you like color, Marx brothers movies and Art Nouveau fixtures, this is the place for you.

Location

On a hip intersection of Orchard Street, close to a large number of nightlife options.

Bedrooms

The 22 rooms range in size from 320 to 750 square feet and include wrought iron bed frames, Art Nouveau light fixtures, wall-to-wall carpeting, brocade bedspreads, historic molding and reclaimed wood (from the original building). Bathooms have subway-tile walls and free-standing sinks. Some rooms have balconies, window seats and hydromassage baths and are named after celebrities from Hollywood’s golden age.

Public areas

The colorful lobby features a 1920s yellow-and-red Coca-Cola ice box that doubles as a telephone station and a soap stone sink serves as a planter. A vintage cast iron stove operates as a tea and coffee desk; wainscotting and a marble fireplace complete the look.

Eating and drinking

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or bar but guests are served complimentary breakfast in the lobby each morning.

Leisure facilities

The hotel doesn't have a fitness center or spa.

Service

Service is a little slow sometimes but the desk clerk has a sunny disposition.

Who stays there

Couples and singles. There is room for families but the area and space is geared towards adults.
