Value for money near madison square

Staff is very friendly and rooms are new and perfect, location is great near underground, restaurants and jazz clubs. A jazz trio was playing in the lobby when we arrived . Was great. But the hotel is under reconstruction so looks not nice from the oudoor and there is only one lift for customers , the second one is for the workers. Quiet during the night , some noise during the day but we were not in New York for staying in a bedroom all day long !

Friendly Staff

The staff all were extremely nice and helpful. As soon as arriving in your room they give a complementary call to ensure that all is well. The only complaint was that they were renovating the hotel at the time of our stay making it a bit noisy within the hotel, but judging by the floors that had already been done this will improve the aesthetics of the hotel greatly.

in new York City for a night

I now live 100 miles north of NYC (after living almost 50 years in Manhattan) and come into the city a few times a month. I have stayed at a number of hotels I booked through this site - always at a highly reduced rate, of course!! The Gershwin is a bit on the shabby side, but the things they've done to make it more "upscale" are very intelligent, like removing the rugs and not using bedspreads, just a crisp white duvet cover on the blanket. Since rugs and bedspreads are two things people generally feel a bit uneasy about in not so great hotels, this was quite brilliant of them!! All in all, for the price I paid, it was more than fine. Good location, in the somewhat trendy Flaitiron district. Check out Madison Square Park a few blocks south - a small and very pretty park and not a place most tourists would generally think to go. Back to the hotel: the single elevator made getting to my room a bit slow, but that's not something that particularly bothered me.

Location Location Location - Excellent Staff

Stayed for St Patricks weekend. The hotel is in a superb location seconds from 5th ave so is ideal for Times Sq, Shopping etc etc. The hotel itself has the bare essentials but the location is so good everything is within seconds of the hotel. The room (double-double) was spacious and comfortable however the bathroom is in need of updating. This is being done as renovations are ongoing did not really bother us much. Look you get what you pay for but with regard comfort and location it is a great hotel and worth visiting. Finally, the staff at reception and door were absolutely fantastic. Always with a smile on their faces and they were very helpful with any questions we had.. Would return..

HMMMM

- Staff was very courteous and good. - THe Room was average - I doubt the window AC would do any good in summers - did not use it. They have a steam heater (right next to the bed)- which makes a lot of noice - plenty of heat though. - Hotel is still under construction.. lot of noice. - Elevators are a long wait.. ended up taking stairs most of the times. - Free Wifi is fast and good. - King bed was comfortable.

Good Value, Fabulous Staff and Location

I had stayed at the Gershwin about 8 years ago, perhaps under different ownership, so I was at first disappointed to not find the same colorfully bright walls filled with art as last time. The rooms are clean, beds decent, showers are strong and hot, but manage your expectations--it's old and a bit dumpy--paint was peeling from the trim in our room, but to be fair, they are in the process of renovating. The mid-town location is very convenient both for going up to Broadway and downtown. A++ to the staff. They really stood out in terms of attentiveness, professionalism, and friendliness. And--it was well staffed in terms of numbers, too. There was always someone readily available. Look beyond the renovations and age of the building, because the price can't be beat. A good value and a great experience.

boiler was not working

we had no hot water, they called someone to fix the boiler, apparently he fixed it but forgot to turn back on the water because when we turned on hot water faucet, nothing came out. they did agree not to charge us for the night. hopefully they will get the problem fixed. this was during record cold in NYC so all plumber must have been very busy.

Minor issues with the room

Almost everything was fine with this hotel except that the noise from the pipes (heating? plumbing?) woke us up once or twice during the night. There seemed to be a lot of construction going on as well, luckily there wasn't too much disturbance because of that. The staff were great, and the room comfortable. Good value for money.

Excellent staff -- sub par facilities

We have stayed at the Gershwin before and found it comfortable if a bit quirky. This stay, however, was less than satisfactory, probably because the hotel is undergoing a major renovation. Our room was tiny and awkwardly arranged, especially the bathroom. Simply moving past the sink from the shower to the toilet required contortions. Our room was on the street side and was very noisy at night. We also missed the wonderful murals of musicians that used to be in the halls and rooms. I hope those will be restored when the renovation is complete. On the other hand, we could not have been happier with the service by the staff. All were friendly and very helpful. The doorman offered us an umbrella when it was raining and ran all the way down the block to get us a cab. The concierges helped us navigate the bus system and find things to do. All the staff were terrific, greeting us every time we came in and making sure we had what we needed. We would stay there again once the renovation is complete.

For seniors, the buses are a great bargain. We got a roll of quarters and traveled for $1,25 each ride -- exact change (no bills) required.
