In the landmarked 1903-built Chemist's Club building, the Dylan is a combination of Beaux Arts opulence and modern, sleek Jeffrey Beers-designed interiors. That combination is evident in the lobby with muted colors and glass paneling centered on a Gilded Age marble staircase. The rooms reflect that mix with 11-foot ceilings along with high-tech amenities. The marble bathrooms with Italian-porcelain-bowl style sinks look nice, but I find them cumbersome and lacking in shelf space. If you can, check out the Alchemy Suite, the former Chemist Club's mock laboratory with a vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, and stone doorways; it's most definitely a one-of-a-kind room. The Benjamin Steakhouse is the hotel's restaurant and features a 10-foot working fireplace. Though the rates are comparable, the Dylan doesn't offer the services of the Library Hotel (across the street) but if you can't get a room there, it's a perfectly acceptable alternative.
