I have been to NYC previously & for this trip I chose the Dylan Hotel for its Midtown location as my friend & I ran the 2019 TCS NYC Marathon. I have fairly high expectations & the hotel surpassed it! The staff are very friendly & provided excellent service throughout our five night stay. I loved the hotel's stylish decor and it is very clean. The Dylan’s location was great for shopping, restaurants, & hoping on the train from nearby Grand Central Station. I also highly recommend booking the hotel to future TCS NYC Marathon runners. Two important convenient features; if you choose the start line bus pick-up at the library it's a five minute walk from the hotel & after you cross the Central Park finish, you can return on a nearby train. As Canadian travelers with the US exchange rate this Midtown hotel had the best value for our stay. We loved the Dylan Hotel & I will definitely book my return NYC visit there!
Hotel is a great location. Decor is lovely. Staff are amazing. Made our stay feel like home. Great hotel for families, they have interconnecting rooms. Rooms are large and bright. Rooms on the 2 floor, facing the street. No issue with noise due to double windows.
