My husband and I booked a room at The Evelyn, based upon location and price, and because it looked like a place that would have unique charm (as opposed to a soulless chain hotel). We were not disappointed. Although the vibe was a more "Addams Family," rather than "Eloise at the Plaza," we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The turn-of-the-century feel of the building has been maintained and enhanced, but rooms are comfortable and accommodating. The bed and linens were high-quality and comfortable, and the "residential" feel of the room was successful. The quirky Rodgers and Hart sheet music tile in the bathroom was charming, especially in contrast with the modern "rainfall" shower and the heated floor (or was that just my imagination)? The hotel provided convenient coffee and pastries in the morning, but we also enjoyed having coffee at Birch Coffee, a few steps outside the front door. We have stayed in New York many times, and we marveled at the quiet nature of The Evelyn's location. It is situated on 27th between 5th and Madison Avenues, two bustling New York thoroughfares, and yet the hotel was peaceful and quiet at all times we were there. That is NOT the case in many hotels in the City. We had not stayed in the Flatiron district before, and we loved the vibe. Subway stations were easy and pleasant walks in any direction, and we walked to the High Line one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had Uptown business on two mornings, and especially loved walking to the "1" train station on 28th and 7th. Most of 28th street in that area is lined with wholesale flower and botanical shops, all loading and displaying their fragrant wares right on the sidewalk. The Evelyn's desk and bell staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, and housekeeping was scrupulous. At an average rate of about $200 a night, this hotel is a good deal, too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
