CHECK AVAILABILITY
The Gershwin experience begins as soon as you walk into the Pop Art-bedecked lobby, a museum space unto itself that contains an actual Campbell's Soup Can by Andy Warhol, signed by the artist himself. The welcome continues at the front desk, where guests are greeted by the friendly, multinational staff, who between them boasts a formidable array of languages and smiles.

Next to the lobby, you'll find Birch Coffee, serving an assortment of Rainforest Alliance and bird-friendly coffees and teas. This is also a great place to grab a lunchtime sandwich with a glass of organic wine or beer.

A veritable arts festival unto itself, The Gershwin Hotel also boasts The Living Room, a separate performance space that features regular music, comedy, and theater performances. You can also read your E-mail in one of the two handy Internet kiosks.

The Gershwin experience, however, doesn't stop at the ground floor. Each of the 12 floors has its own installation of original art for you to enjoy. Then there are the guests themselves, who represent a cross-section of New York and all the lively arts. By the time you check out - if you check out - you'll agree that the Gershwin is not just another hotel.

This is a smoke-free property.

I love the Gershwin for being an old house which is slowly being renovated but with a good mix of old and new. Love the size of the rooms and the Birch Cofee place :-)

Our room was bare and shabby--not shabby chic, just shabby, with an old mattress and a view of construction. The bathroom had one dim light bulb, no lamp for the desk at all. Lobby is spacious and cool, location is great but the rooms need some serious sprucing up!

We were very happy with The Gershwin. Our room was clean and ample in size. We had a suite with a queen and 2 twins-perfect for 4 people. I loved the wooden floors, closet space, comfortable beds etc. Although the shower was a bit unpredictable, in an older establishment-you just work it out. We found the staff very friendly. Being in between two subway lines (the 6 green, and the N,Q,R yellow), made getting around very easy. We were very close to the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park. We found several nice places to eat in the area and having the Birch coffee house attached to the hotel was great-excellent staff in there as well. We all agreed that we would stay there again.

The hotel's location is great, the staff was nice. The rooms was ok. Real drawbacks are: - it is not possible to have a late check- out, not even if one wants to pay - the do not call taxis when you want to leave. With heavy suitcases it is a nuissance to run to the next corner, hail a taxi, go back to the hotel and hurry the bellman to get your bags....

We stayed in New York for two nights and were looking for a budget freindly accommodation. Value for money was amazing. The hotel has a funky aesthetic and the staff service was really great. The rooms don't have any frills, but are clean and comfortable (and nicely decorated). Great location and we will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in NYC.

Posizione ottima! Un 2 stelle di buon livello per pulizia, ampiezza delle camere, e stile caratteristico. Peccato per l'attesa di un'ora prima della consegna della camera.
