We stayed for 2 weeks in July. The location for what we needed was spot on. Staff is very caring and kind. If you are a light sleeper don't get a room looking over 27th, as early risers it was OK to us.

Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and updated. The location was great. My daughter and I loved our visit to NYC, and the staff at the Gershwin Hotel made it an A+ mini-vacation!

Excellent value for money and very central. Will be great when all refurbishment work completed. We didn't have a refurb end room but it was fine. Staff very friendly and you can buy food from deli to eat in dining area in lobby.

Staff were very helpful though they could do with a bit of training on how to help you to book an airport shuttle - very willing but lacking in knowldege. The room was small but very comfortable and the bathroom had one of the best showers I... More

I stayed here for 5 nights During my first visit to NYC. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe in the area, even at night. Most pedestrians were female and the homeless population was at a minimum. Despite not being a tourist trap like Times Square, the hotel is convenient to several attractions, being next door to a...

If you can choose...don't choose this hotel, It'sad to spend money traveling and you have to spend hours in the street beacause you don't want to come back to the hotel. Noisy room, old and veeeery small bathrooms, no one of the service had any responsabilty about anything, 100$ missed from the room and nobody knew anything....a nightmare

I enjoyed NYC a lot. The hotel is in a very nice location, very close to the empire state and rooms are very comfortable and the hotel prices are very cheap. The service was very kind I hope to return there.

This was a beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff. The rooms are modest in size, but elegant and well maintained. The hotel was a fantastic deal and a great place to stay. Although small, it was perfect for the price.
