Great location for business traveler working in the area. The hotel is quaint. The showers are a little small but the overall room is most comfortable. Close to everything. Walking distance to most everything.

Excellent location - close to Eataly, subway station. Rooms are small but we were only in the room to sleep. Very friendly staff. Did hear street noise in room. Very easy to book reservation using hotels.com

Great location. Clean comfortable room. Tasty selection of morning pastries and tea. Very helpful bellmen. Charming bathroom. It takes the hot water several minutes to kick on but that isn't a deal breaker.

Wonderful and polite staff and great location but the room I booked was nothing like the photos posted online. Very dark and creepy vs the bright and lovely photos they advertise. I am very disappointed with my stay and probably will not return.

I loved this hotel - everything about it! The room I stayed in was very small - but this is typical for most NY hotels. It was perfect for 1 - 2 people, the bathroom was spacious, the decor was modern and cozy, and the staff was excellent. I will absolutely be staying here again!

We stayed at the Evelyn due to its proximity to Penn Station since we were departing the next day. The rooms are very small, which is common for NYC, but could be better organized. It was very crowded for 3 adults with luggage. The mattresses were saggy in the middle, an automatic disqualifier for me to return to the Evelyn....

Paper walls makes these rooms noisy and uncomfortable, you can hear every conversation and toilet flash in the floor. There was only one elevator working, and the lobby area looks bad and not inviting… Free WiFi but bad connection. 5 stars for the location, but our stay was not great and for that reason I will not recommend this hotel.

Another Hotel were we usually stay was sold out so I decided to try The Evelyn as it was close to our destination. Great move. The price was good for a Manhattan location, rooms were small but comfortable, bathrooms were great. The only thing I didn't care for were how the outside noise came to in and based on the...

what a thoroughly charming hotel and equally charming staff in a superbly central setting should you wish to tour. The hotel was clean, quiet and quirky. Loved having coffee (good coffee) on tap and pastries in the morning, what a treat. Lovely friendly, helpful staff, I will certainly return.

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
