“Named after composer George Gershwin, who sold his scores in the neighbourhood, the Gershwin Hotel was founded in 1993 by Quebecer Suzanne Tremblay. She developed a personal checklist from all the places she’d stayed during her extensive world travels. They should be affordable; should foster a sense of adventure and help you learn about yourself and where you’re going. ‘I need a product that speaks to me about New York... For me, my direct connection to New York was art.’”

I've never heard of this, but do love Gershwin's music! If I were in New York, I'd have to check this place out. Did you stay there?
