The Blue Moon: An "Old New York" State of Mind

Posted: May. 10th, 2007  |  By Christina Stewart
Luxury Hotels: New York City dwellers may be known for succumbing to the perils of cramped living space, but for the thousands of travelers that frequent the city, tight quarters are a thing of the past. The new Blue Moon Hotel affords guests the luxury of spacious rooms without the hefty price tag one might expect. With rooms at twice the size of that of the average New York hotel, the Blue Moon offers guests unparalleled comfort and impeccable service.

In addition to the hotel's luxurious accommodations, the real selling point lays within its prime Manhattan location. Nestled between the lower east side avenues of 57th and 5th, the Blue Moon provides an authentic feel inspired the turn of the century. From the cobblestone streets and its architectural design to the neighboring blocks of Chinatown, Littly Italy, Soho, and the Financial District, the Blue Moon boasts the best of the Big Apple. History buffs will appreciate the renaissance attitude, its Museum Block location, and the historic memorabilia, which decorate the walls of this boutique hotel.

The beautifully redesigned hotel was once in fact a tenement building, and after five years of renovation, the Blue Moon has preserved its Old New York vibe. The man responsible for the restored brick dwelling and all its charming accents is developer Randy Settenbrino. Continuing the legacy of his great-grandfather, who built Coney Island's Half Moon Hotel, Settenbrino has successfully reinvented the future.

While the Blue Moon is embellished in artwork of days past, it in no way lacks contemporary design. Its historic presence is accentuated with modern detailing and superb craftsmanship. This trendy four-star hotel features 22 guest rooms ranging from 320 to 750 square feet, complete with high ceilings, free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, mini bars, balconies, and more.

What's more, each guestroom is named after legends from the roaring twenties and nostalgic thirties. Guests can stay in the Frank Sinatra, the Jimmy Durante, the Groucho Marx, the Sophie Tucker, or their favorite celebrity from the era.

The parlor-like suites including the Al Jolson, the Fanny Brice, the Eddie Cantor, the Mickey Katz, the Molly Picon, and the Marx Brothers, all feature a wet bar and balcony offering views of city landmarks.
