We checked into the Gershwin on Sunday, but we checked out of The Evelyn today. The place is clearly in transition, but it was still a little surprising to come back from breakfast to brand new signs. The staff, every single person I encountered, was super nice. And the location was perfect for what we wanted to do in the city. However, the elevator is extremely slow, and very small. The only working elevator. And because of construction on floors 1-3, you couldn't use the stairs. Didn't like that. The deluxe queen room is only slightly bigger than the elevator, with virtually no storage. The bathroom is very nice though the windows in there were really drafty. The tv only worked sometimes and only on some channels. The USB ports in the wall didn't work. The bed (an alleged queen...) was comfortable however there was no possible way those flat bottom sheets are ever gonna stay tucked around those mattresses. One turn and it's over, you're in a puddle of sheet. The tiny refrigerator was a nice touch though. To wrap up - I wish the Evelyn Hotel the absolute best of luck. They seem to have good people working for them, they just have a lot more work to do in their renovating and upgrading of the property.
- 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
