The Gershwin Hotel
About The Gershwin Hotel
The Gershwin Hotel, named for the musical brothers George and Ira Gershwin, is located in the charming “NoMad” (North of Madison Square Park) neighborhood of Midtown Manhattan – the perfect location for exploring nearby Murray Hill, Gramercy Park, Flatiron District and Kips Bay neighborhoods. It’s also the perfect in-between location for visitors hoping to check out Midtown’s top attractions like the Empire State Building and Downtown’s boutiques, galleries and nightlife. Best of all, guests have the serene Madison Square Park on their doorstep and the delicious Eataly (Mario Batali’s artisanal Italian marketplace) right across the way.
The vibrant red exterior and giant, tear drop shaped glass window sculptures let you know that this is not just any hotel – it’s a unique artistic experience. The Gershwin Hotel is located in what was once known as Tin Pan Alley, the area of West 28th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenue sknown for its high concentration of music publishers and songwriters. The legendary music of the ’30s and ’40s was conceived here, hence the homage to the Gershwin brothers. The creative tributes continue within, where you will find art, art and more art celebrating the work of everyone from Andy Warhol to Michael Lin.
The Gershwin Hotel has multiple styles of rooms available in lots of different configurations. The Suite offers a queen sized bed, separate living room, en-suite bathroom with flat-screen TV, microwave and refrigerator. The Entourage room is great for families, with two separate bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the second with two twins) and a living room. Superior, Le Standard, and Essential style rooms range in size and have various bed configurations. For travelers on a budget, Bunker rooms are dormitory-style rooms with bunk beds and a shared bathroom. All rooms feature vibrant colors, offbeat furniture and colorful Pop Art on the walls.
