Subjectively: The Gershwin is like a love child spawned by an IKEA and a Salvation Army...given up for adoption to be raised by an American art professor. The decor was interesting but slapped together. I didn't mind the experience, but those who are less tolerant should consider the following... Objectively: The water temperature never stayed consistent...and the last day of my visit was TOTALLY OUT. No water in the room or downstairs at the coffee shop. Objectively: The elevator was intermittently functional throughout my visit...but there was always a note saying that assistance was available should it be required. All in all, this place wasn't terrible...but it certainly needed work.

The website I used to make my reservation was not very good at giving room details nor was the hotel's website. The great deal that I got was not for a room with one bunk bed in it, but it was for a room with 6-8 beds. Additionally, there was a $35 service charge for amenities if you did not bring your own. I did not bring my own as I was anticipating a hotel not a hostel. This hotel should not be recommended online or even offered if it's services cannot be more accurately portrayed.

We stayed here on our trip to New York. You are right around the corner from the empire state building. The hotel itself may not be a super luxury hotel but has everything you need on top of its unique art , character and great staff. I would recommend it to anyone visiting who wants a unique experience and to be seconds away from everything you want to do in New York. Overall great stay!

Everything was great. The only thing was the shower was kinda yucky. We never got a good temperature!

We were very pleased with The Gershwin. We had read some reviews and weren't sure what to expect but found everything to be great! We appreciated the art. The staff were all gracious from the front door to Reyna the housekeeper. Facilities were great, no problems with the hot water -- both my wife and I were able to take long showers. It was busy outside due to the club being next door but we had no problem getting into the hotel and up to our room on a Friday or Saturday night! The only problem we encountered was after we had checked out and were trying to get our bags it took kind of a long time but no big deal.
