After staying in several hotels over 3 weeks due to a fire in my apartment, staff at the Gatsby were the ONLY staff who made me feel welcome. Literally. I was greeted by the manager, Angela, upon checking in. Super accommodating, professional, and genuine. How refreshing. During my stay I was treated equally as courteous and helpful by Amine, Mahleni, and Jon. If you're looking for a place where you feel comfortable and welcome, especially with the current pandemic, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. Very clean as well.

I've stayed at a few hotels in Manhattan over the past few months and the Gatsby is my favorite. It's got everything. Location, comfort, views, cleanliness, and a most accommodating staff. Easily the best choice you could make for a hotel stay in the city. The Gatsby has no hidden charges, unlike some other hotels in the city and in these post-covid days when so many hotel staff are weary and blunt and far less interested in taking care of their guests than they were in the past, the excellent staff at The Gatsby are at the top of their game. Friendly, helpful, caring and exactly the sort of people you want running a hotel. Angela is the General Manager and she sets the calm and pleasant tone there with both her staff and the hotel guests. I stayed for a week and then extended my stay even longer because I was so pleased. I highly recommend The Gatsby. It's better than many hotels at twice the price!

Clean and safe. The location is perfect to find restaurants in both the LES and East Village. If you drive in, it’s fairly easy to find street parking on the weekends. Or, if you want to stay in the lower part of the city you can stay here and never need to use the subway. Terrific value!

I booked this place through Airbnb and I was blown away by how hospitable and accommodating everyone working there was. If I had any questions or needed anything they were quick to help in any way they could. The room itself was very clean and a good size for the price I paid. This was also my first time in New York City and I had some unfortunate and unexpected circumstances happen that were unrelated to the hotel but the workers were still very caring and went out of their way to help me figure things out. Definitely going to be staying here the next time I’m in NYC!

I stayed there for two and a half months before and it was perfect. It was my first choice when I came back to NYC. I highly recommend it if you are visiting NYC! Ask for a high floor so you don’t here the noise of people checking in.
