We were in NY Jan 2-9 and stayed in this lovely hotel. Rooms are nice, big, quite and clean, the staff is friendly and very helpful, the location is perfect. I stayed in this hotel for business and came back on holidays. I think this is going to be my preferred hotel in NYC for quite a long time!

This is the second time I have stayed in an Affinia hotel. We stayed 1/1/2015 - 1/3/2015. We had one issue with the room we were given, and when I tweeted that complaint, I was given a discount on our next trip to NYC. Gaz, who helped me out, couldn't have been more professional and couteous! Now, onto the hotel.... More

I went to NYC Jan 23-25/15 to see theatre with my niece (22) and nephew (18). We had a large, well appointed room with 2 queen beds on the 6th floor. Although the room faced Lexington, it was very quiet and we did not need to use the ear plugs the hotel kindly provided. Staff were very friendly and helpful.... More

Very friendly hotel staff made my stay really pleasant. Even the doorman was smiley and happy. The room was a good size and the bathroom was clean and well appointed. The toiletries weren't great, just average. But that's an afterthought. The location was perfect - a short walk from Grand Central and easy to walk to other areas of the... More

What a wonderful gem of a boutique hotel. Great location -4 blocks from Grand Central and Subways - quiet and convienent. The staff was very helpful - the room spotless and spacious. The Rare restaurant within the hotel was also great. Good value and will look to stay again.

We decided to stay in the City after a business dinner and found the Shelburne through Trip Advisor. The price ($129) was very reasonable for Manhattan, our room was large and clean and the staff was friendly. The free wine hour was a nice feature. It's location makes it very convenient to mid-town, theater district and train stations. I would... More

Affinia Shelburne was selected for its location to an early morning meeting we had to attend. That worked out great for us. But the icing on the cake was that everything else we wanted to do was in perfect walking distance as well. We so enjoyed walking around New York and experiencing the weather, people, sights and sounds. Will definitely... More

We selected this hotel for its proximity to Grand Central. It is about 5 blocks down from the station on Lexington. The nearest subway is a few blocks away, but that is just fine. The room was spacious for NYC and very clean. I have to say that the bed was extremely comfortable! They had a pillow menu, but we... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
