Service very friendly, and courteous.Room new and bathroom very nice, decor was beautiful and portrayed the era we expected! Long wait at elevator. Location to green line very close. Remodeling could be noisy at times, unlike the 'painting only' that they told us, but not unbearable.

My overall experience staying at The Evelyn, formally known as The Gershwin, was excellent. The front desk and lobby staff greet you with a smile and are very helpful and professional too. The rooms are nicely appointed and a decent size and room service was great. The hotel is in a very convenient location for tourists and there are a... More

Staff very helpful from front desk to cleaning ladies. Room quite small but OK for a short stay. Quite noisy at night when trying to sleep. Elevator a major issue but I hope they are working on that..

We were very pleased with our stay. The staff was very professional and always willing to help. The rooms was clean and comfortable. My only recommendation would be to adjust the rooms doors, because they close very loudly.

While in a handy location, the hotel was under construction. Our room was on a newly remodeled floor. The room is quite small although heated bathroom floors were a nice touch. Bathroom window was very drafty and kept the room on the cold side. Could not use the internal stairs as the floors were under construction. There was only one... More

Fantastic break at the hotel, right in the heart of everything, 3 minute walk to the empire states building, around the corner from Maddison square garden. A great hotel, bed so comfy . Around the corner from the most amazing steak house ben and jacks. For a short break in NY you cannot go wrong. Hotel just finishing renovations yes... More

Just 2 blocks from the subway. Lots of restaurants (and a grocery store with deli!) nearby. Broadway is close at hand. Hotel staff (particularly Paul!) was very pleasant. Clean room, comfy bed. Fresh hot coffee and ice water in the reception area (good, because no coffee maker in room). Eventually this might be a lovely hotel. That won't happen for... More

We checked into the Gershwin on Sunday, but we checked out of The Evelyn today. The place is clearly in transition, but it was still a little surprising to come back from breakfast to brand new signs. The staff, every single person I encountered, was super nice. And the location was perfect for what we wanted to do in the... More
