Comfortable and stylish, good location, helpful staff. The room was the perfect size for two of us. We enjoyed our stay very much. Would definitely recommend it to friends. Located in a nicer neighborhood as well.

Elevator was a disaster. From lobby to room it takes 15min to reach or vice versa because 1 elevator is not enough for a 12 floor hotel!. Start working the second elevator. 2. Water pressure was so low in the showers. We could not able to take a proper shower for 10 days. The shower was either so cold or... More

The Hotel is in a rebuilding process, so it is very loud. We hadn´t warm water, the next day we had only HOT water, so we can´t shower. It was a very unpleasant stay for us, so I hope for them, that they as soon as possible ready with their rebuilding works.

I just spent 3 nights at this hotel which is very well located and accessible to all there is to see and do in NYC $10 cab ride to either Central Park, Time Square or Financial district $35 from La Guardia airport. Staff are excellent rooms modern and clean. The elevator could be a little faster but that's being real... More

The lobby was a bit under construction and the elevator slow and stuffy but the room and staff made up for it. The bed was very comfortable and the linens immaculate. The bathroom was clean with a roomy shower and terrycloth robes. Conveniently located near two subway stops, too. I can't say enough about the staff. They nearly jumped (with... More

Just spent six nights at the Evelyn. We booked as it is on 27th Street, in the flatiron district. 10 - 15 minute walk to Times Square or we had the subway on 28th street. Two minute walk. We had read reviews it had been recently renovated. Walking down the stairs it looked like there was only one floor to... More

There were no dressers in my room and no minibar. The hotel didn't even have a restaurant. I had to live out of my suitcase the entire 6 days I was in New York performing at The Blue Note Jazz Club with the Eleventh House. I was not a happy camper or drummer! Alphonse Mouzon

We stayed at the Evelyn hotel during our holiday one week. The location is great, we walked to everywhere almost. Shopping center is also very close to hotel. Fifth avenue is just several step. Rooms are not large but it is very clean. Hotel stuff are friendly, breakfast service is not available. Have a lovely holiday. Nuray Kus

We were very pleased by the location and the hotel is newly renovated. However, the building is under construction from the outside, so the noise of the workers and engines starts from early morning. Even one time 2 men were on our window while I was coming out from the shower. There is only one slow elevator for the hotel... More
