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.

A wonderful small boutique hotel

The staff is its greatest asset.... Engaging, friendly, accommodating and informative. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only negative was that the bath was rather small. The wine tasting hour and the loaner bikes were a great touch. A very unusual positive was the rooftop bar with great view of the neighborhood.

Fun in the city!

The hotel is in a great location, they have a great restaurant and the rooftop bar was amazing! The hotel was a short walk from the train station and everyone was super helpful with providing he best spots in the city to visit and dine

Shelburne is a great Value, great location

Despite a rather uncommunicative front desk employee that basically just handed me my keys when I checked in, the hotel is super close to my office, and only a block from tons of great restaurants on 3rd Ave. Also just a few blocks to run the East River Greenway and a mile or so from Central Park. I'll stay there again

25th Anniversary trip to New York

We recommend booking a shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel which wasn't to costly and made our arrival and return to the airport smooth. On our arrival at the hotel we were welcomed at the hotel with a big smile by reception. Booking in was simple and quick and we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving. The room was spacious and very clean and modern looking. Bathroom great with shower and bath all sorts of goodies to use as we women like. Good coffee or tea machine which is great in the morning, there is also a well stocked mini bar but you can get drinks downstairs from the Bar grill if you want and bring back to your room as we did or you can also get room service. They came and cleaned your room every day and the bed was so comfy! Our view wasn't great as we looked at another building but this was expected as New York is so built up but it was quiet, we were on the 3rd floor. The wine hour that the hotel had each night was very relaxing and a good way of talking to people if you wanted. We met a couple of lovely ladies on our first night one lived in New York and her sister was visiting and staying at the hotel, we had some interesting stories. Hotel staff are very helpful and go out of their way to give you the information you are looking for. We found New Yorkers to be very polite and they love to have a chat. If you need a taxi the Man dressed in his big overcoat looking very dapper at the front of the hotel will whistle one for you and what a great whistle he had they are very appreciative of a tip by the way. You will need a great pair of footwear as you will do so much walking and everyone seems to walk in trainers or sneakers as the Americans say - you will be glad of them by the end of the day. We also took a tour bus for 3 days as you will need the break from walking you can hop on and off these all day, this is a great way of getting round New York to see the sights. They turn up at a stop every 15 minutes so you are not hanging around to long and you also get a person giving tour history whilst the bus is moving. Hotel was situated in a great area everything is easy to get to there are great diners nearby that do a great breakfast at not much cost. We also ate in the Bar Grill belonging to the hotel the food was delicious and not to costly service is quick and attentive (we Brits have a lot to learn!) eating in New York was all good no matter where you ate. There is plenty to do day and night so much so that the 4 nights was not enough, my legs were telling me otherwise though! Shopping is good you can get everything and if you get a good exchange rate it makes the experience of buying even better. All in all our visit to New York was so exciting and the Hotel was the best we have stayed in in a city. We will be going again some time soon and using e-bookers again as this was our 1st experience with them and it was excellent!

Tour bus is very good to getting around and seeing the sights. You can get these on a 3 days pass and hop on and off at your convenience.
