“Avoid cold season”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

January 2014 was the month to avoid at Gershwin Hotel, in renovation, noise and workers around and with serious problems with the heating system in the rooms!
Service and atmosphere in the lobby quite good!

The hotel is nice and tidy, and the personell is very kind. It's top quality is the position, don't expect a super hotel but for its price and position it's perfect for a short holiday in the Big Apple.

Booked this hotel a week before my birthday because it was in my price range & had a good rating. It's definitely a quirky little hotel & I loved how unique it was. When I got to the desk I was told I was upgraded to a deluxe king room. The room itself wasn't huge, but it was perfectly fine for me. The room was very clean & the staff was very friendly. I would definitely book this hotel again and suggest it to anyone.

The room was frozen and they offered a space heater but then said it was a fire hazard. The pipes were frozen in our bathroom, when they got them working there was no hot water. No offer of another room so checked out early. They kept the prepaid money for the room for the full stay.

Was here for 3 nights and would definitely be back on any future visits. All the staff are very friendly and very helpful. The only thing I will say is that if you are a light sleeper then there can be quite a bit of noise at times from the street, however, I'm not a light sleep so wasn't a problem for me. The rooms are cosy and clean and the bed was very comfy. Great hotel and great location.

FANTASTIC STAFF!
I didn't learn everyone's names, however, I can certainly say that Isabel, Hashim and Mohammed were among the VERY BEST!!
Very rarely do I ever receive any sort of phone call 15 minutes after leaving the front desk, asking me if everything is alright.
The staff placed a very nice touch on everything--making guests feel oh-so welcome!!!
