Excellent location, very cool art deco decor, rooms are small but well appointed. Quietly located just off 5th Avenue, 10 mins from Empire State Building. Go to Birch for coffee, two doors left of hotel.

When we arrived to the hotel we were greeted by lovely staff at the front desk. We arrived before check-in and they offered for us to leave our baggage with them while we went for a bite to eat and a well deserved drink after the long flight. When we returned back to the hotel we were offered complimentary tea,... More

We had a great extended weekend holiday in New York. The hotel has a very convenient location for sightseeing the city. A very professional and friendly staff! Some renovation was on-going, and the one elevator was a bottleneck at times.

With over 400 hundred hotels just in Manhattan, there are, as I said many to choose from. We visited The Evelyn (formerly The Gerswin) between the dates of March 30 and April ninth. So this was our second stay at this hotel. This time all the rooms in the hotel renovated and we got a completely new room. Very tastefully... More

The location was great. Walkable to many sights. The subway was close by and easy to use. Lots of restaurants nearby. Art Nouveau design is unique. Staff are friendly and helpful. The construction took away from the hotel experience. We understand the reason for it but we should have been given a better rate or upgraded to compensate for the... More

Very good location. You can go to the main place walking and you have a subway station one block walking. Rooms maybe a little bit too small. I recommend this hotel, good relation price/quality. The only problem the elevator, there is only one for the whole building and sometimes you have to wait for it a long time because is... More

Pros. Location was great. Rooms were clean and new. Decently priced for NYC. Cons. Lobby was under construction, only had one working elevator. Was expecting more in the lobby to detract from the construction experience. i.e., better front desk, bellman service, water with fruit, cookies, or even nice music playing...

The Evelyn which was formerly called the Gershwin is under renovation and I definitely will return to see the end result. The only complaint I have is that the photo shown when you look up the Evelyn does not in any way represent what their rooms look like. At least not the room we had. The room was small but... More
