We stayed at the Gershwin several times, first on the advice of a friend. Other visits were based on our own previous experience, so that tells you something good about the place. It met my criteria: inexpensive, clean, good location. But The Gershwin has a lot going for it apart from the above, namely the Art. Rooms were old and small but Arty. Art is the byword here, from the building's three dimensional silver flame facade, to the lobby where Andy Warhol had a couple of Campbell's soup cans on display, to the corridors, replete with posters and original artwork, to the bedrooms, where bright colors and wood floors harmonized with large and colorful framed graphics. My first-visit room had a blown-up and colorful portrait/poster of Pablo Picasso (in later life). The next time I visited, staying on a different floor, the room had an exact copy of the PP graphic. Bathroom fixtures were old but worked. Bathrooms are tiny. Staff are friendly, young, hip, and multinational. The only problem I had was with noise. There was a lot of street noise at night if you get a lower floored, street facing room. Rates were super cheap the first time I visited, but have crept up, just like everywhere else. Figure that $200 is the opening price for a modest room these days, so it is still a relatively good bargain. Prices do fluctuate by season, so check ahead.
