Always a Fantastic Stay

Since 2003 every time I come to new york I stay at the Shelburne! The rooms are large clean and modern. I always stay in a one bedroom suite facing 37th st. Room service from Rare Bar and Grill is great when I have friends over before a night out in the city.

Not bad for NY average for any other 4 STAR hotel

You expect more when you pay 200$ a night. But what you get is average however not bad considering average cost of a pint of beer is 7$. Room was not bad, it was very clean, comfortable. We got a room that look at an alley real ugly view. No pool but the workout room is very nice. Roof top bar is pretty good. Location is excellent.

Friendly Staff and a good price

We stayed at the Affinia-Shelburne recently for my bachelor party in NYC. I was hoping for the one of the two-bedroom suites with a terrace, but they were booked solid that weekend. We ended up with a little less space than I would have hoped for in a suite, but the service at the hotel was very nice. Nikki, I believe, at the front desk, was very nice and helpful and gave us all the information we needed. She offered to have the sofa bed made up and ready for our return. We actually spent most of the night in the city, so the room served as a little place to share some drinks and food at the end of a wild night on the town. The room was very clean, and the hotel provided everything I asked for. The elevators were small and a bit slow at times, especially the next morning during check-out. The price was very good, however, if I planned another event or bachelor shindig, I would probably shop around and spring for a larger suite, or book further in advance so I could have the two-bedroom suite, which would accommodate a large group much better. Overall, a nice stay with a great staff and great service, and much appreciated Philosophy bath products!

A great place to stay

The hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel room was spacious & the bed was extremely comfortable. The power shower was great. The hotel was near plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants & only 20 mins away from Times Square. Grand Central station was only 5-10 minutes away.
