“Gershwin stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Comfy bed. Small room and bath. Clean. Good rate. Extremely loud noise from renovation across the street that included work trucks with booming generators until midnight each night, returning at 6 am. Paper thin windows in room made it worse.

Dear Ms.Carly C,

We highly value your comments. I apologize for the street noise you encountered. We are truly excited with the on-going transformation at The Gershwin. I'm confident you will be satisfied with our restoration and I'm thrilled to announce we will be installing sound proof windows. I do hope you were pleased with our hotel's central location. As you may have experienced, the Empire State Building and the Flat Iron district are minutes away. I look forward to welcoming you back for a future stay in one of our restored rooms. I thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts.

If I can provide additional information I'm at your service. Please contact me directly at jagosto@gershwinhotel.com or at 646.507.5400.
Sincerely,
John David Agosto
General Manager

Excellent staff and quintessential New York. The room was large for New York but the bathroom desperately needs updating. We were always able to find taxis and the cafe next door, Play, had a quick breakfast.

The hotel service is good. The hotel itself is a little old, but okay. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Bellboy constantly asked if I needed anything. A little too much, but he was friendly. They did not have tooth paste to provide since I forgot mine.

The hotel is a nice basic and very clean hotel The building itself is older but lots of charm. The staff were always very helpful and friendly.
The location was perfect! Walking distance to the subway and to the lovely Madison Park.

After a flight diverted to Boston and with 7 hour delay we arrived at the hotel where desk people told about a problem booking with a group, we were going to be diverted to other "luxury stay" previously paying 5 nigths at the Gershwin.
This stay (Edison Hotel)was terrible and we phoned Gershwin the first nigth (first minutes after enter in the room), the first morning (international calls), afternoon and after two nigths at Edison Hotel, we showed up in Gershwin to ask for our room (no facilities to translate Gershwin-Edison-Gershwin).
On our second night at the Gershwin hotel we witnessed the same scene with another couple. Desk people told they had to be diverted to another hotel because problems in a group booking.
Coincidence? does not seem.

The hotel is currently being refurbished and its booking and detour to other hotels methods are not serious
