We've been staying at the Gershwin Hotel for years (five, give or take). We've appreciated its location, cost, and friendly staff. We can now add to the list of things we appreciate. We stayed in one of the newly remodeled rooms. So many improvements! The bathroom is worth staying at the Gershwin for. Add to that central air, a fridge,... More

The hotel, located in Manhattan, offered the opportunity to visit this city very easily, because there are many subway stations around it. You can start your tour visiting the Empire State Building, that is just a few minutes from the hotel by walking

The hotel is in midtown and very close to the subway. Very close to Madison Square Park and also close to Central station. Not far from China Town, Little Italy and Times Square. The room we stayed in was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. Only bad thing was a very loud air coinditioner. Our room was in... More

This was by far the worst con I've endured for a vacation. I can't tell how disappointed you will be if you find yourself paying extreme prices for a dump. I understand the owner is renovating but he should not mislead prospective consumers with pictures of beauty and place them in a room and on a floor that does not... More

The hotel is in the process of renovation so it was a bit dirty. The drain in the shower did not drain quickly and the shower was not clean. But the size of the room was very nice and the hotel has a lot of charm.

We have stayed many many times at the Gershwin. The location is great. The prices have always been great. Service & cleanliness continue to be excellent. We are very sad to lose the eccentric Gershwin of the past -- loved it. But, the new owners are doing a good job of providing very friendly helpful service. If the prices continue... More

The Gershwin Hotel is very centrally located. It's a short walk away from the lively Flatiron District, a 10 minute walk to the Empire State Building, and a $10-15 cab ride to all major attractions. The lobby was well-appointed and the front desk staff was friendly and attentive. That said, our overall experience at the hotel was rather disappointing. Upon... More
