Despite going through a renovation, we loved our stay. Staff was wonderful. Our budget room was TINY but perfectly designed with great linens, cute bathroom and comfortable beds. Great location. Only complaint, besides the square footage, which was expected, was the one slooooow elevator! We weren't spending any time in our room, so the lack of space was just fine.

The hotel has no lobby, bar or restaurant, There is only one working elevator. They don't share any of that on line. It's a complete surprise to guests at check in. Full disclosure would be more fair!

Very well located hotel. Potentially attractive and comfortable, but currently under renovation. Room nicely decorated, and very quiet, but poor storage. Elevators a disaster, slow and erratic. Friendly and helpful staff.

Great boutique and friendly hotel. Fantastic staff, in particular, Jeremy and Angel. I am a designer and would say the rooms are cool with lovely Frette linens, Bigelow bath products, Lefroy Brooks sink, tiles and marble floor, with a great looking comfy bed. The rooms have a very current/hip yet timeless design renovation that plays up the Gershwin music era...with... More

We had a great stay at The Gershwin last weekend. They are in the midst of remodeling the lobby area, and some of the floors, but we stayed on the 9th floor in an updated room. No view of anything though, but that made it nice and quiet. The furnishings were modest but tasteful, and the bathroom was terrific! Lots... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Gershwin Hotel in October of 2014. Check in was easy and they kept our bags aside as we arrived quite early in the day. The staff were very helpful in giving us tips on the subway system, cabs, and places to go. It was 14 blocks from Times Square which was about an... More

Yes, there is construction going on in the lobby (though it in no way interferes with hotel operations). Still, this is an ideal NYC hotel - great staff, great rooms, great location and great rates! Mine was just a one-night stay (wish it could have been longer), but the Gershwin is now my NYC hotel of choice for all future... More

Nice hotel, nicely renovated (stylish) room, excellent location. Small room, renovation still ongoing, causing smaller troubles. Bad: the only, very slowly working elevator - backing-up people in the floors.

Great hotel, small rooms (what do you expect for NYC?), a little dated but renovation in progress. Literally round the corner from Empire State Building and Flat Iron, Time Sqaure and pretty much everything wlse is 15-20 mins walk. Great for what you need, after all, who does anything other than sleep at a hotel in New York City?
