Nice place to stay for business purpose. Even though paying for wifi in the rooms is still a no-sense for me! Welcome to New York! The roof terrace is really nice but unfortunately in 10 visits to this hotels it was one only open twice. Staff is really helpful and kind

This property was located in a great area, with lots of coffee shops and cafes very near by. Both Starbucks and Dunkin' were on the same street as the hotel, as well as an AWESOME little bagel shop that I went to every morning! I wish I could remember the name, but it was about 2 blocks up in the... More

Stayed at the Shelburne in the summer last year for 3 nights. This was our first time in New York and this was a great base to see the city. We travelled as a group of 4 and were upgraded to a smalle suite, so my son was able to use the sofa bed in the lounge - we also... More

Having stayed at the Affinia Shelburne a few times now, I've seen a definite deterioration in the property. Although my room was clean and well maintained, the decor is beginning to feel really dated. And there were stains on the carpet in the hall near my room that bordered on disgusting. On the upside, the staff continues to be extremely... More

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. It is more like an apartment, depending which room you have. I stayed with my Family of 5 in June 2012 and we had a 2 bedroom apartment. The room was really big, big enough for 5 of us to not get in each others way. Staff were all extremely friendly... More

Since we were planning to be in New York for a two-week business trip, we wanted a place that had at least a minimal kitchen setup. The Affinia Shelburne offered quite an attractive rate for their Studio Deluxe, which proved to be comfortable, convenient, and really roomy for a New York hotel -- huge, in fact, which was great, since...

We stayed at the Affinia Selburne for our 35th wedding Anniversary. At check in my husband mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary and would a room with a view be available? They moved us up to the 10th floor (I think). Room was very nice, we had paid for a deluxe suite with the small kitchen. It was nice... More

This was a great location, just minutes from Grand Central. We checked in, dropped our luggage off in the room, ran down to the lobby and asked for extra towels, glasses, pillows, and a pantry set, then ate at Rare so that by the time we returned to our room we had everything we needed. Mini fridge was dirty, but... More

Stayed here with my husband for our anniversary. Hotel is in a great location...a few blocks from Grand Central, so if you come in there it's super easy to walk a few block to the hotel and not worry about a cab. Easy to walk back to GC for subways around the city too. They were very accommodating...we went to... More

Dear Ashley A, Thank you for your amazing review. You are correct, the Affinia Shelburne is centrally located in the quiet neighborhood of Murray Hill. Which is minutes away from Grand Central station, The Empire State Building and Times Square. Our rooftop bar does offer amazing views of the New York City skyline and we are glad you were able...

Affinia Shelburne is a solid hotel for mid to upscale business and leisure travelers. Rare restaurant on ground floor is a very good restaurant casual and you can also receive free wireless from the hotel lobby if you are a on a working dinner. Rare View is nice but you have to get there early or service at the bar... More
