Excellent location for a friendly staff hotel. Rooms are small but all is functional and friendliness of the staff compensate for drawbacks like slow lift and no breakfast in hotel itself. Birch coffee place next-door offers excellent coffee. Very central for good access to main sightings in New York (5th Avenue, Flatiron building, Empire State, Central station etc all at...

Hotel room is very small and water pressure in shower is lacking. The guest experience from the employees is fantastic! You can walk to many restaurants and attractions from this hotel. Bad is soft and radio docks iPhone.

The Evelyn is very good situated in the heart of Manhattan and is very good for making trips in any direction of New York. Unfortunately the "cupboad" in the room ist as small that you have a serious Problem to store all your goods you need for a six-days Trip.

The aesthetics of this hotel are wonderful. The rooms are fresh and newly remodeled but there is absolutely nothing that helps soften the noise in the hallways. Doors are very load and guests speaking at a whisper could be heard as if they were actually in the room. There was not one night or one early morning that you could...

We selected this hotel for location and price and were very pleased with our choice. This hotel was formerly "The Gershwin" and we loved the Gershwin music score on the bathroom, the framed sheet music and artwork in the room. The linens were of excellent quality, great lighting, the room was sparkling clean, our bathroom was very modern and well...

The lobby is currently a work in progress and one of two lifts is being refurbished but despite this we had a good value stay. We walked a lot and it is quite convenient for the sites. There is no bar or restaurant but cakes and small pastries are available with coffee / tea in the lobby in the morning...

This was my first time staying at The Evelyn. Friends had stayed there and had highly recommended it. It is going through renovation but that wasn't an inconvenience. The room was quite wonderful with Frette sheets and towels. The lighting is also good for reading in bed. While not a priority for most people, I find that this is the...

We chose The Evelyn for the location, which was wonderful as we were steps away from Madison Square Park, Eataly, lots of good restaurants and shops. But that didn't make up for the poor service and room we had during our stay. We arrived to the hotel early, which as seasoned travelers we knew didn't guarantee us that our room...

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
