Great hotel tucked away on the East side

Have stayed at this hotel before and have returned for multiple visits. The rooms are actually a little larger than most NY hotel rooms with very comfortable beds and nice amenities. Thoroughly enjoy the free wine hour in the hotel lobby. Very nice choices of wine. While the hotel is centrally located from North to South, wish it were not quite as far east as it is. Nonetheless, it's worth staying there,

Very nice property

Spent four nights at the Shelbourne laast week while in town on business with my daughter. Very spacious room for the city. Nice location with a on site third party that is more than adequate.

Anniversary/Shopping trip

Excellent stay within this hotel. I had booked a studio suite but contacted the hotel in advance to request a high up room with a view of the Empire State. Upon arrival we had been allocated a room on the 15th floor with a balcony and awesome view of the Empire State. The room was large by New York standards and spotless. Couldn't get a picture on the TV but to be honest that's not what the trip was all about so no real inconvenience. We were usually out early in the morning, returning later in evening anyway. Try and get to the hotel between 5 - 6pm for their free Wine Hour, not one drink but a free hour. Nice to sit with a glass or two of wine after a day shopping/sightseeing. Staff were always pleasant, accommodating and happy to help with any questions. Oh and the food, especially the burgers, in The Rare Restaurant was amazing. Best burgers I have tasted and that's not an exaggeration. Fabulous stay which was all too short.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Download NYC Metro Subway app. Grand Central Station is not far away. Buy an unlimited Metro card, cost about $30 for 7 day pass. It's easiest and quickest way to get about and doesn't take too long to get to grips with. If you can't download an app then get a Metro map or you probably will get lost.

Christmas Vacation

Great location! Central to everything but away from the chaos. Many wonderful diners, resturants and pubs only a short walk from the hotel. The bar in the hotel had the best burger in town! The staff was very accomdating and let us check in at 9:00 am on the day after Christmas! Only complaint was the room was too hot even with the heat turned off. AC was not available during winter months but we were able to open the window.

Great City Visit

Very good hotel for the price. We were in room 315 which faced 37st. Even though it was on a low floor and near an elevator the room was very quiet. The staff was very welcoming and offered us free Wi-Fi since this was our first visit. The prices from the mini-bar to the Rare Bar and Grill were reasonable. The neighborhood is relatively quiet and convenient.

Great location, decent price & size for NYC

Our hotel was great...the location and size were decent for NY. Haven't stayed in much larger in NYC. The price was typical NYC price for a good hotel...best value at the time I was looking. Would stay again.
