I have stayed in hotels around the world for over 40 years, and am used to living in developing countries, but the Gershwin is by far the worst I have ever experienced. I never write hotel or restaurant reviews but feel I must in this case as a public service. This hotel should not be open to the public. In the middle of winter the temperature in the room never got above 64 F/17C. and most of the time the heating, on a timer, was off in the bedroom and bath. There is one working elevator for the entire building meaning you wait 20-25 mins. to jam yourself into a packed elevator. The shower is freezing and has nowhere to place soap or shampoo so you must hold them as you bathe. The windows have wind blowing in all around the frame and the bottom. Workmen start pounding at 6 a.m. every day. I left early because the hotel was unbearable.
