I cheated on my usual hotel (the Metropolitan) to come to the Shelborne. The reason was that the price was substantially cheaper and that the Metropolitan was not very clear about their pricing this time.
Well, the rooms are huge, literally twice the size of the Metropolitan, the service was friendly and discreet. I asked for an early check-in and late check-out and they were both granted even if I was effectively a first timer. The food was perfect and well priced (Morimoto is incredible).
The only reason why I would go back to the Metropolitan is that I speak directly to the manager there, which is easier when you go down twice a month. I haven't even met the manager here, but it's understandable given that this is a much larger property.
