Spent six nights here with my best buddy in a queen room to celebrate my big birthday. We laughed when we saw the size of the room. "good thing we like each other!" we knew the hotel was under renovation so were a bit nervous about what we would find. It was not bad. Exterior is under scaffolding and lobby... More

Having flown in from the UK at 4am, no sleep and the onset of jet lag were seriously kicking in. Well, as you can imagine, when we checked in and were told we had actually booked into a 10 person room with ONE bathroom, I could have literally died. We walked into a room of snoring people, no aircon and... More

The hotel is close to the Madison square park and just a few blocks away from several subway stations that will take you to any location in NYC. Most parts of the hotel were under renovation but they gave us a newly refurbished room which is very comfortable. I find that the only lift is rather slow, but I think... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gershwin is now offering newly residential inspired rooms with references to an Art Nouveau Style. Our NoMad hotel is inspired by the musical and art heritage of the neighborhood, which was the epicenter of the popular music industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The music theme is reflected throughout the rooms, corridors and bathrooms. The NoMad District (now also known as "NoMad" - North of Madison Square Park) is now one of Manhattan's most popular neighborhoods, characterized by its beautiful and historic architecture, exceptional bars and restaurants tucked away on quiet side streets, and many other attractions. Centered around Madison Square Park, the NoMad District is within walking distance of Midtown, Union Square, Greenwich Village, and NYU. ... more   less
