Well located, very close to the Empire State Building. Clean, comfortable room with safe. Wi-Fi in room, plus 2 Macs in reception. Room was too hot though as the heating system is old. Would stay again.

Staff was all very gracious and welcoming, but the hotel is undergoing extensive renovations and is basically unlivable from 8-5 daily. Great place to drop your things and explore the city, but not to sleep in! Beds were incredibly comfortable, rooms were sparse, but had everything you could need.

Staff was very nice. Our room felt like we were staying with a friend in their tiny city apartment with old pipes and needed a serious reconditioning. The room was 97 degrees when we came in, so we turned the window unit air conditioner from 1984 on and had to leave it on during our entire stay. Our trip was... More

They are under MAJOR renovation and we were woken by VERY LOUD noises early every morning. I would not recommend staying here until the repairs are complete. One morning we had no hot water. I will say that the staff was all very nice and helpful.

I've stayed at Gershwin before and have always enjoyed the place. It's well located at 5th and 27th, staff are warm and professional. Can't beat the value for money ... Dinet and Angel at front desk are always very helpful!

The hotel is in a good location, in midtown near Empire State Building, in the corner with the Fifth Avenue. The rooms are average but the cleanliness and the service are very good. The only problem is the renovation in progress

Great prices, great internet. Rooms are quite dated, but thats fine with me. Renovations are underway so they should be updated soon. I would not recommend if you want a stylish and luxurious romantic getaway, but very functional and has some charm.

Very interesting place. In a really good area if you're planning on doing shopping, the 6 and N train are close you can travel around really easily. If you're looking for something upscale and luxurious I would wait until they're done with renovations. It's really funky and has that New York, small charm but I'm sure after they're done with...

The room was very tiny and the interior was dated, but we had a great experience nonetheless. Hotel was undergoing renovation during our stay so the lobby was stripped and plain, but the construction never got in the way. The two best things about this hotel: awesome staff and great little cafe downstairs. ~10 min walk to Madison Square Garden... More
