We had an excellent stay...loved the room/accomodations. We will be back! The foyer was a bit dark and the view from the room was of the building next door, but considering we were in NYC for the sites and shows- we were quite satisfied with our accomodations!

Every time i came to New York I stay in this hotel I love the staff, the rooms and the location the only problem can be at times the elevator that is very slow I personally do not like the new name and would have prefer to stay as THE GERSHWIN

The team makes me feel welcome. I like that they allow computer and printer usage at the lobby which allows me to print some last minute things that I have forgotten. The room is a little small but that's the NY standard I guess. Overall I'm quite happy here.

Everything in this hotel is average or slightly below average. Isolated, dark and a bit dusty with tiny rooms and tinier elevators. 20 minutes walk from Broadway. The good thing is the price because in this matter, Manhattan hotels are way beyond crazy. So, it' your best secon or third choice!

Less than $100 a night near the heart of Manhattan? Sign me up. The moment we stepped in, it smelled of fresh roses ... but we were in the dead of winter. Yes, it's cold outside but the rooms are nice and cozy. The elevators weren't as bad as the plethora of complaints. Chill out people. Also, they told me... More

The Evelyn is ideally located, being right in the parts middle of NYC you want to visit. The hotel will be fab when the renovations are complete, but there are minor problems until then. The elevators are very slow, and there are noise problems caused by room doors slamming that make sleeping difficult, especially in the morning as people come... More

I was amazed at the quality of this hotel - incredible value for money and great sized rooms, all newly renovated with marble bathrooms and good showers. Really friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful at all times - nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

For the price, I absolutely can't complain. The staff is friendly. As one reviewer said, the elevator--and, currently, there is only 1 for 13 floors, is incredibly slow. The hotel is in the process of renovations, which explains the very low price, The problem is that the updates are inconsistent: new beds, new room design, but broken torn blinds (true... More

Lovely location on 27th Street and really good online booking rates. Friendly staff and the slowest (creepiest) elevator ever, with no dial on the corridor, so you don't know if it will ever arrive. The renovated areas are very good and show a nice design style. I got a small renovated Queen sized room with a wonderful music tiled shower,... More

I had a large group of artists stay at The Evelyn (booked at The Gershwin) in January. Ive been to the hotel before but the recent upgrades make this a really charming hotel. Elevators are SLOW, add 10 minutes to get out of the building.
