A rare combination of tranquility and excitement.

What it's like

Stepping through the doors of this historic building feels a lot like walking into a museum. Closed for 70 years starting in the 1930s, the former tenement apartments have been converted into hotel guest rooms, making them perfect time capsules from Depression-era Manhattan. Personal effects and artifacts were collected and re-purposed, finding new life in the present day. Wood moldings became picture frames, wrought iron created window balconies, and original knobs and hinges adorn many doors throughout the building. These little pieces of history blend perfectly with modern elegance, contemporary amenities, and fantastic service to create The Historic Blue Moon Hotel.
