My sister and I really enjoyed our room and the location of the hotel. It's right around the corner from the Museum of Sex, and it's never more than a 12 dollar cab ride from anywhere cool. Housekeeping service was stingy with towels and could have been better. Overall, the trip was great.

Stayed there for few nights for a work related visit. They have recently re-decorated the hotel. Everything was very clean and cozy, staff were very friendly. Bed was comfortable, and room was decent sized. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

We love this hotel. The location is excellent (so close to the Flatiron building, Eataly, ABC Carpet and Home, etc.). The very recently renovated rooms are very well done, quiet and with very nice bathrooms and closets. The bed is a gorgeous design and very comfortable! Do know that the lobby has yet to be renovated but the rooms are... More

We decided to try this hotel and, overall, it was a good experience. Keep in mind that they are in the process of renovating a 100 year old hotel, so some things are not going to be in line with a newer facility -- like the elevators. Other than that, the rooms are very nice, the front desk staff is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Evelyn formerly The Gershwin Hotel is now offering newly residential inspired rooms with references to an Art Nouveau Style. Our NoMad hotel is inspired by the musical and art heritage of the neighborhood, which was the epicenter of the popular music industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The music theme is reflected throughout the rooms, corridors and bathrooms. The NoMad District (now also known as "NoMad" - North of Madison Square Park) is now one of Manhattan's most popular neighborhoods, characterized by its beautiful and historic architecture, exceptional bars and restaurants tucked away on quiet side streets, and many other attractions. Centered around Madison Square Park, the NoMad District is within walking distance of Midtown, Union Square, Greenwich Village, and NYU. ... more   less
