As loved the Gershwin several years ago. It was a funky, charming, convenient place to stay. Our last visit, however, was a huge disappointment. The huge murals of musicians were missing from the halls. The lobby was sterile instead of cozy. Our room was tiny with the most incredibly inconvenient bathroom layout we have ever seen. The housekeeping staff "forgot" to make up our room one day. The only reason I didn't give it a "2" or "poor" rating is the excellent staff in the lobby and at the door. They almost made up for the problems. They were all courteous and went well out of their way to be helpful. One doorman offered us an umbrella on the way out. Another ran all the way down the block to hail a taxi for us. One concierge explained the NY bus system in great detail, and another gave us good advice about a place to eat and enjoy a show. The place is under renovation and we won't give it another try until all of that is finished.

- The Evelyn formerly The Gershwin Hotel 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
