Great Hotel Near All Tourist Locations!

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: I loved the location, i think that is the most that I loved about it. I also loved the elegance of the rooms and restroom!
Cons: Renovations are going on which is great so that next time it will be finished but I'm sure the hotel staff already know the elevator needs improving.
Location: Just as mentioned this hotel is perfect because you can take a short subway ride to the Central Park or decide to go south and see Lady Liberty!
Overall our stay at the Evelyn was very comfortable and memorable. I loved how this hotel is located just around the corner of the Empire State building and in the center, geographically, to be able to get to many other main tourist locations. The subway was extremely near by! Thus, this hotel is located in a perfect area and plus the rooms themselves were so comfy with heated tile flooring in the restroom which was a huge plus! Its all about the details for me. Even the smell of the lobby was so inviting! Everything was nice about the building including the staircase. Of course everyone complains about the elevator but my partner and I would use the stairs when going down to the lobby which was no big deal since the stairs had an old NY feel to them. Check in was easy/fast and check out too! The rooms were decorated so lovely that I could not get enough! Overall, we would return to this location hands down!

Nice hotel in the heart of Manhattan

Posted May 7, 2015
The hotel staff was very friendly. Room was a bit smaller than expected, but very clean with good temperature control, newly renovated bathroom and comfortable bed. There was free coffee and pastries every morning which was a nice touch. Location was fantastic. Close to the 4/6 and N/R subway stations and right in the heart of Manhattan.

Excellent customer service!

Posted May 4, 2015
This is a lovely hotel in a convenient location. What impressed me most was the superior customer service. Every person we encountered was attentive, helpful, and courteous. Clearly they pride themselves on how they treat their guests.

Newly renovated rooms

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Rooms were clean, new, but small. Also our air conditioning didn't work so we had to resort to the fan. Overall great experience.

Mitten drin mit viel Charme!

Posted Apr 19, 2015
Ein klasse Hotel mit viel Geschichte und Charme. Die Zimmer sind für New Yorker Verhältnisse ausreichend groß und super schön. Da alles renoviert ist, lassen sich sowohl Bad als auch Zimmer sehen. man darf wohl behaupten, es gehört mit in die Kategorie Designhotels! Natürlich ist es aufgrund des allgemeinen Platzmangel manchmal etwas laut, da man die anderen Gäste auf dem Flur hört. Aber man ist ja nicht in New York, um sich im Hotelzimmer aufzuhalten. Die Lage und das Team sind wirklich super. In der Lobby gibt es Kaffee und Tee sowie morgens Kleinigkeiten für den ersten Hunger. Ein kleines Manko ist allerdings, dass es nur einen Fahrstuhl gibt, der teilweise wirklich lange braucht, so dass man die Treppe nehmen muss. Aber die Renovierungsarbeiten sind noch nicht abgeschlossen - vielleicht wird an diesem Punkt noch gearbeitet. Tolles Hotel! Ich komme wieder!

Uitstekende ligging.

Posted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: charmante sfeer.
Cons: lift - ontbijt - computers
slechts 1 lift! geen restaurant/ ontbijt. (wel gratis koffie & thee beschikbaar in de lobby.) gastencomputers blokkeren de waanzinnigste websites (die van mijn skynet webmail bv.; en diverse, neutrale online ticketing websites voor concerten, theatervoorstellingen, sportmanifestaties etc. - dingen die je (o.i.) onvermijdelijk doét - en dus nodig hebt, in NYC...), en het hotelpersoneel kan die blokkeringen niét opheffen. Erg onpraktisch allemaal! Verder: de (constante) muziek in de lobby is aangenaam, stijlvol & 100% 'in character'; maar ze zou wel eens wat mogen afwisselen... (Steeds dezelfde playlist van een 20-tal nummers gaat op 7 dagen tijd behoorlijk vervelen - temeer daar er geen énkel onverwacht nummer tussen zit; alleen maar 'standard evergreens'...) Verder: sommige kamers zin behoorlijk kléin. Let goed op wat je boekt; en vraag bij aankomst indien mogelijk/ nodig om een upgrade. Al bij al: bijzonder aangenaam, best mooi hotel; algemeen genomen vrij goed & vooral zeer vriendelijk personeel (erg behulpzaam); en niet te vergeten: een uitstekende ligging op Manhattan.

Did the job

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Was looking for something a bit more modern and romantic--like the picture above! ! But the hotel was very dark and he room was very small. on the plus side, recently renovated and attractive.

Excellent Hotel in a great location!

Posted Apr 6, 2015
I have stayed at this hotel when it was the Gershwin and the renovation has been spectacular! The rooms are beautiful and can't wait to see the lobby renovation when it is done. The location is central to everything with amazing nightlife only steps away. Will definitely stay here again and again!

Litt out of the way..

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Rooms newly renovated, but they are not the biggest, but they work for a weekend... 12 story Hotell with only one working eliveter..we had a cupel of min waiting on the eliveter through out the weekend.. As a tourist in NY I rather would had stayed closer to eather Time square or Soho... Now we stared every day with a walk.. ;) But it's cheaper for a reason, but that you will spend on taxi..
