We stayed in the Shelburne from Nov 25th - Dec 2nd. We got a good deal online as we were staying 7 nights...just $239 dollars a night .
Having read some of the previous reviews of this property i really didnt know what to expect. But i have to stay I really enjoyed my stay at the Shelburne.
As with previous reviewers the location really is brilliant, we tended to walk almost everywhere and the hotel was just 15 minutes walk from Macy's, and maybe a couple of minutes more to Times Square, although it can also be easily reached by subway, just 2 stops away.
I have stayed close to Times Square, close to Madison Square Garden and downtown and this was by far the best location, a lovely quiet street full of brownstones and with lovely delis and coffee shops closeby.
The hotel itself really isnt that old and I thought the decor was just fine..it was all spotlessly clean and honestly, i have to say I am a bit sick of slick shiny modern hotels. The Shelburne had character. The staff, especially the doormen were polite and extremely helpful, and everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Rare Bar and Grill is a yummy restaurant if you like a really good Burger and the JAzz music in the Lexington Lounge (Thurs, Fri, Sat night, also in the hotel) is brilliant! One of the highlights of my whole stay.
Our rooms was clean, spacious, and the kitchenette was a great bonus, allowing us to buy in breakfast and save some money!. Overall it was one of the best hotel stays i have had in New York and i would be sure to return!.
