The room was not as advertised. Unfortunately very disappointing because it looked like a very nice place. Very dark, hardly any lighting. Phone didn't work. Wanted something to drink in the late night but there was no vending machine. On the other hand, the location was convenient for the stay.

The lobby is trying to harness some charm from the walls and floors that are in disrepair by adding funky furniture and murals. It kind of works and to be fair they are working hard to upgrade things, having started with the rooms and hallways. Clean, smallish comfortable rooms with new everything, including large walk in show with rain shower...

Staff is friendly and helpful and morning coffee and pastries in the lobby is a nice touch. Be sure to ask if there is storage for folded clothes in your room as not every room is furnished in the same way.

This is a nice older hotel without the pretention one finds at too many NY hotels. Decent place, nice bed, great people. I especially like the Gershwin music tiles on the wall in the bathroom. Turned out I KNEW the song!

The lobby needs an update but overall a nice experience for one night in NYC. The room was small but accommodated us just fine. Front desk staff could be more attentive and helpful; valet parking was a nice option at $40/day.

We stayed at the Evelyn around the Thanksgiving holiday. We had thirteen nights at the Evelyn. This was our first time to New York and the United States and to be honest; we loved it.

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
