Hotel review: If jazz were a hotel, it would look a lot like The Evelyn New York
The Evelyn is a historic NoMad hotel that recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation, while preserving the neighborhood’s musical and artistic history through Art Deco design and ambiance.
The Evelyn’s rooms are on the smaller size, ideal for business travelers and couples that seek a boutique setting in a prime New York neighborhood.
I spent a night in a Deluxe King room which currently starts at approximately $250. It was a decent size for New York City (meaning, it’s still somewhat small), beautifully decorated, and had nice amenities like a walk-in rain shower and heated floors.
The Evelyn Hotel, named after “it girl” Evelyn Nesbit from the district’s famous Tin Pan Alley musical era, is the kind of spot that oozes nostalgia, even though much of it is brand new.
Originally designed in 1903, it underwent an extensive multi-million dollar renovation in 2018. The original exterior and floors were left intact, while upgrades like expansive Art Deco skylights, heated bathroom floors, and three distinctly different eateries from award-winning Chef Jonathan Benno ushered the hotel into a new era.
For now, it exists in at least two netherworlds: the glamour of the Gilded Age and the convenience of new New York.
I felt this first in the lobby, filled with velvet couches, Art Deco windowpanes, dark wood, brass light fixtures with warm mellow lights, and a delightful scent lodged somewhere between an olfactory memory of a favorite cologne, and a light plant medley.
But upstairs in my Deluxe King room, I was treated to updated amenities such as a walk-in rain shower and a winged headboard with USB ports for added functionality.
My room was comped for review purposes, but research showed that the same room was available for around $250 on
