“Gershwin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The Gershwin is not pretty on the outside but our room was very nice. It is ideally located and the staff were all very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel for people visiting NYC. The only downside was we had to go home!

Overall we were very happy with our stay. The only improvements that could be made are to put a coffee maker in the room, if not provide coffee in the lobby. and have a mini fridge with a freezer. The fridge itself want very cold and was not adjustable

The staff was friendly and professional. I love old non-corporate type hotels and this was perfect. The hotel is being renovated so that may be an issue for some, but it was fine with me. Everyone I encountered was great.

I got a nice deal for my 8-day stay and I had a great experience. The staff is very pleasant and professional. The room on the 10th floor was cozy with a Queen-sized bed, a view of the city, a fridge, free WiFi and a large flat-screen TV. I have a few complaints:

• The maids don't clean behind the bed. I misplaced something and while I was looking for it, I had the misfortune of seeing the dust bunnies behind the bed-frame. Not sanitary at all. Make sure to tell them to clean there if you find your maid in the hallway.

• The room isn't stocked with an iron and board. You have to ask for them. Do it on your first day so you don't get surprised while you're in a rush like I was.

• The toilet chain broke off and they had to someone to fix it on two different occasions. Despite that, I was never convinced that it was actually fixed.

• There was a lot of construction which made the hotel look far worse than it really was. I did not hear the construction, nor was it a real bother. The only issue is that using the stairs means going through construction area on 3 different floors, which is guaranteed to dust or dirty up your clothes. And believe me, you'll have the urge to go through those stairs anyway, because there is only 1 elevator for guests and it is ridiculously slow. You can spend up to 10 minutes waiting for it.

Despite all that, I'll give the hotel 4 stars. I got it at a really good price and those few hiccups didn't ruin my stay in the least. The hotel is at a good location and it was a very cozy stay. The busted toilet or slow elevator didn't ruin my vacation in the least.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor! The floors are being renovated from top to bottom, so if you get a higher room...

We stayed for 2 weeks in July. The location for what we needed was spot on. Staff is very caring and kind. If you are a light sleeper don't get a room looking over 27th, as early risers it was OK to us.
