This hotel has been recently renovated. Our room was 911 (we're not superstitious...) on the ninth floor. Our room was small but nicely decorated to a good standard with a shower and nice comfy bed. It was noisy during the night due to the city never sleeping but then I don't expect to get a good nights sleep in New... More

because the Hotel is on edecoration it is very noisy, the heater does not work properly, the water and toilett sometimes did not work. It might be better after finishing everything. Right no the price is far too high for the incinvinience we have had.

The Evelyn hotel is located centrally to everything you want to see in Manhattan. The Flat Iron building and the Empire State Building were within easy walking distance. Everywhere that you looked you saw unbelievable architecture and historic buildings. The hotel is under a remodel and should be much more comfortable with larger rooms and the proposed restaurant and bar.

This is a GREAT hotel. Rooms are recently renovated and though they are quite small, they are immaculate. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Complimentary water and coffee in the lobby is a nice touch. The location of this hotel cannot be beat - close to Madison Square Park, great shopping, great restaurants! We read prior reviews about the elevator... More

Really nice hotel in a great location. Friendly and efficient staff, complimentary tea and coffee at reception was a nice touch. Only points for improvement would sorting the windows out as they rattled loudly in the wind at night and let a draft in, and the shower temperature was difficult to control. Otherwise great stay.

This hotel has is undergoing renovation - as of March 2015 I would say guest rooms are 80% complete. The renovated guest rooms are very comfortable. A bit small as is to be expected in NYC. No dresser. The beds and linens and bath products very nice. Lobby is still a bit of a mess. No lobby bar at this... More

A very pleasant stay. The hotel is undergoing renovations and that meant only one working elevator. If you stay here, pick a low floor! Tremendous service from the staff. The box is telling me I need 30 more characters, so here they are.

The Evelyn is a brilliant hotel to stay in, it is very central, subway just round the corner, flatiron building 3 mins walk. Staff are incredibly professional, they even made a call to check a dress code for us. See if you can sneak a ride in the original 1903 elevator it's an experience.

We loved The Evelyn. It's location was great and the hotel is very clean and comfortable, even though they were in the middle of remodeling. This was our first time visiting NYC and staying here made the trip so much more enjoyable. We will stay here again.
