Great location ~ right near The Empire State Building! Great food in RARE restaurant! Great guest service ~ from the moment we arrive everyone was friendly and helpful! The Bellmen, the Front Desk Agents, Housekeeping, Concierge, Restaurant Staff ~ can't say enough!

Back in November 2010 my mum, aunt and myself visited New York during Thanksgiving week. I have to say, we all had the most fantastic time in New York and staying at the lovely boutique hotel, Affinia Shelburne, made our visit even more enjoyable. The bedroom size was more than ample for us and we could even see the Empire... More

In this well located, central location, staying at the Affinia Shelburne was a delightful experience. Booking through Quikbook, I obtained an unbeatable rate for a comfortable, well appointed single room with excellent amenities. My only quibble would focus on a certain noisiness filtering from the corridors through the room. Excellent service, concierge help, and delightful and potent free morning coffee.... More

The rooms in this hotel are the biggest I´ve ever seen. We had a suite and it was very comfortable, with two wardrobes, kitchenette and a huge bathroom. The staff was very kind, and I want to make an special mention to Jada-Lee Mcgill, who was always interested in satisfy our requests.

This is the second Affinia hotel we have stayed at, the first being in D.C., and we must say that we are big fans!

Pretty good location on 37th/Lexington, only a few minutes walk from 5th, subway at 33rd street and easy to get to from JFK. Hotel is clean but has dated fixtures and fittings and overall I think the place needs a refurb. Good food downstairs at 'Rare' if you like burgers and steaks. However. The broadband connection is absolutely TERRIBLE. I... More

I initially did not reserve this hotel. Instead I was moved over to this hotel when my early check-in request was not granted at one of it's sister hotels. I must say, for once I really lucked out!

Location was great, close to Grand Central, yet far enough off the really busy roads. We booked a suite but next time will get the simple room. The kitchenette was a bit of a disappointment, no toaster, and surprisingly no cutlery or dishes, yet there was a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, coffee mugs and glasses. Nice shower, but the bathroom... More
