Relative to other New York hotels, the nightly rate at the Gershwin may attract you. If you're not familar with New York, don't believe the "hype" -- Stay somewhere else! The Gershwin -- which has been taken over by a foreign, money-grubbing, off-site corporate conglomerate -- is an old (over) rated 2 star hostel -- not hotel -- with old, creepy with 19th Century flea market and dumpster retrieved furniture and furnishing which is being passing off as "unique design elements reminiscent of pre-war New York décor... [with] art work from various artists is displayed in the room." [--] to the maximum! What you get are a few 50 year old, paint-pealing, Andy Warhol reproductions of "Marilyn".
The only attraction to this well-worn "creepy-hollow" is the location on 27th. There are no guest amenities except a brick of a bed and a "tempermentally" flushing toliet that runs over at-will in what is called a bathroom with a painted-shut window! Guest are treated like inmates rather than paying clientele (at a not-so-cheap rate of $300/pn)! The staff's "I don't care if you ever come back" attitude is -- as a world traveler who have stayed in some of the best.. and some really bad hotels through the world -- I can say with certainty is among the worse I've ever endured anywhere!
New York has far too many nicer hotels which offer real amenities and with staffs who have been trained how to treat guests. If you want to enjoy your NY experience stress-free, do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else!
- 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
