The Shelburne is located conveniently close to Grand Central Station, Empire State Building and other attractions. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants within a radius of few blocks so if you don't want to try the delicious burgers at hotel restaurant you can easily find other places nearby. My room was not very big but very comfortable andwarm, with... More

My husband and I recently stayed for 8 days at the Shelburne and had a wonderful stay. Both the room and the level of service we received were impressive. We had an issue with guest noise on the first night and the hotel responded promptly and efficiently to our complaint, and even upgraded us to an even better room. Both... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in February to celebrate my partners 30th birthday. We arrived at midday and managed to check in in to our room then instead of the 3pm check in time which was good, as we wanted to dump our bags and freshen up. The lady on reception was a bit moody and asked "do you... More

It was recently remodelated, the room worked ok for us! The small kitchen is perfectly equiped in order to have breakfast and light dinner... be aware you do not have... More

Me and my wife spent 4 nights in a one bedroom suite. First of all this is a boutique hotel so if you are expecting everything that a 5 star large hotel has to offer then maybe reconsider. But otherwise this hotel cannot be faulted. our suite was on the 13th floor which included a room from the bedroom of... More

I made a reservation over the internet. The nature of the reservation was not clear on the website, and I got all the way through the reservation without realizing that this was a prepaid, non-changeable reservation. Later, when the dates of my trip were changed, hotel staff were unable to shift the reservation by one day and I ended up... More

Overall the Shelburne is a good hotel with reasonable rates for what it offers. I did not expect a 5 stars hotel, but the bedding were extremely good and the sleeping quality exceeded the expectations. We had some issues with the shower gel in the bathroom, which we did not have for the first two days, but then it was... More

Dear carlo_nicora, Thank you for your warm review of your stay on Trip Advisor. Shelburne NYC is located in the charming neighborhood of Murray Hill that is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the busier streets and close to an international selection of tasty eats and treats. Our spaciously clean rooms are larger than most NYC apartments which... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a 5 day trip to NYC to celebrate our honeymoon. We were so displeased with everything from the front desk staff to our room. When we booked the hotel we put down in the comment section that we were spending our honeymoon in their hotel and asked for a room with... More

Notably friendly service. Arriving around 6 on a Saturday evening, desk provided an upgrade to a suite. When I walked in, the smoke alarm was emitting a low-battery message. I called down and they sent a pleasant young man immediately to fix it. Check-in and check-out were efficient. Murray Hill location is quieter than some but an easy walk to... 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.
