On Lexington and about 10 minute walk from 5th Ave, and 10 minutes from Grand Central, hotel is perfect location for seeing the city and for public transport. Staff were friendly and rooms surprsingly big. Rooftop Bar has an amazing view, but staff in the bar could maybe do with some customer service training...

The hotel is located in a great area. Although it is right next to any of the great New York landmarks, it is actually within a very walkable distance to Grand Central Station, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, and 15-20 minutes away from Time Square (walking). The area around the hotel is safe and walkable. We stayed in a one bedroom suite... More

I would highly recommend the Affinia Shelburne! This was our first stay there and were pleasantly surprised with just about every aspect of the hotel. Rates were highly competitive yet the 2 rooms we were provided were larger than we expected. The staff were amazingly courteous, friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is a nice added bonus, and the hotel... More

Booked 2 rooms on 12th floor. Both with Kitchen facilities and one with lounge area - excellent. Rooms big, two double beds in each room, very quiet, lounge area had balcony, more like an apartment! Roof top bar fantastic with amazing views! Staff really helpful, particularly the doorman Dennis. Walking distance to subway at Grand Central or 33rd St. Perfect... More

This was our sixth long stay at the Affinia Shelburne so we went with high expectations for service, cleanliness and responsiveness to our needs, and all were met above and beyond. Of course little things happen, often out of their own control, but the measure of a good hotel is how they respond, with courtesy and efficiency. The Affinia Shelburne... More

Second experience at this hotel was wonderful. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Call hotel direct for special deals. The property is well maintained, and furnishings in rooms have been in excellent condition both visits. Great beds! Suites with the small kitchen are nicely appointed for a longer stay. Lobby seems a little dark at times, but is generally... More

Very nice hotel! Free wine happy hour everyday from 5-6 was a nice bonus. I had a great room. VERY nice size for New York, very spacious, updated bathroom with lots of counterspace. The first room I was given was even bigger, but it had not been cleaned yet, so I was moved. My coworker's room was not as big... More

The location of the Shelburne is excellent - it's a 5 minute walk to Grand Central and Times Square. The staff was very pleasant and willing to assist with various requests. The rooftop terrace had a great view of the city and was a nice place to relax with a cocktail. The room itself (8th floor, corner room with one... More
