Hotel & Youth Hostel Reservation FAQs
The Gershwin Hotel/Hostel offers a very appealing deal for travellers on a tight budget. Located in the trendy Flatiron district of Manhattan, just around the corner from King Kong's famous Empire State Building, the Gershwin is the preferred location for the creative international traveller.
The Hotel is trendy with a capital 'T', and the lobby is a work of art in itself. Narrow, with red and black chequered linoleum, the space is livened up by large ‘pop art’ pieces, sculptures, and smaller works by Lichtenstein and Warhol.
The Gershwin is not just another Big Apple Hotel - it is one of the newest 'New York Experiences’. The Hotel includes an art gallery exhibiting up and coming artists and ‘The Living Room’ features progressive jazz performances and comedy acts.
The large 10-bedded rooms and shared bathroom have a retro colour scheme. They have greenish carpeting and mural-painted walls. Rooms are serviced daily. There is a café/bistro which serves breakfast and lunch where guests can also check their email at any time. The also Hostel features an exceptional rooftop for sun worshipping.
There are no in-room lockers but a safe deposit box is available at the front desk for $5 per stay.
The Gershwin is just steps away from shopping along Fifth Avenue as well as many of the city's unique restaurants, bars and clubs. It attracts an eclectic mix of young artists, European students, bargain-hunting tourists and business travellers.
