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.

From the moment we walked in The evelyn staff were attentive and extremely friendly, best customer service we had during our 3 week NY trip. Room was good size and always clean. Good location, 2 minute walk to Flatiron building and Eataly! Only problem was the elevator which was slow but it didn't dampen our stay and will be upgraded... More

Stayed at The Evelyn for 10 nights. Never had any problems with the lift or hot water or heating. Excellent value for money and perfect location for exploring Manhattan. Fantastic rooms. A relaxing atmosphere.

Following the friendly greetings from numerous staff on arrival, we found check in easy and the lobby interesting at this new hotel. The stay went downhill from there. Two bulbs out in the room when we first went to use them, late into the evening. A nuisance. Very solid room doors means a great deal of noise when others awake... More
