Lasted one night. Check in started badly when they kept us waiting 3 hours as the original room was going to be noisy (their words not mine). After 3 hours they told us they only had the original room. Believe me, it was noisy!
Called reception and they moved us to a different room (thought they didn't have one right?) with apologies from the manager. It's now 5pm.
Went out for the evening then came back to the bar. Very cool place and just like numerous lounges that we frequent in New York. No problems there.
Been up since 6am due to flights so went back to the room at midnight. Tried to sleep. The floors, including the corridors are solid concrete and they echo, they really echo - no change that - they really really echo - especially when there is a continuos stream of idiots yelling down the corridors until 4am. The 2 inch gap at the bottom of the doors really doesn't help.
At 2.30 am I was up telling idiots to be quiet. They did quieten down, but then more arrived.
After getting a horrendous nights sleep we checked out and moved 4 blocks north to the new Gansevoort hotel. It is fantastic and in a different league to the Shore Club.
The Shore Club is living of its old reputation and with the Gansevoort and a new W Hotel arriving nearby it will soon find out customer service is expected at these prices.
To sum it up - a horrible experience from start to finish. Stay somewhere else, and go to the Shore Club for evening drinks if you want to experience it - nothing more.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Designed by famed British architect David Chipperfield, with landscaping inspired by the rich Matisse-like palette of the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, Shore Club shimmers with intrigue and sensuality. Anchored by the original polished terrazzo floor, the elegant furnishings are an eclectic mix evocative of global marketplaces—including relaxed sofas, hand-woven tribal rugs and large patterned throw pillows from Kenya that invite mixing and mingling. The vibe is lively, the atmosphere intimate, the feeling electric. ... more less
