Located between the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station (Lexington & 37th) this is a well located hotel. Very friendly welcome, excellent friendly service. Big shout out to Jean Benjamin the doorman!!! Rooms were big by NYC standards (although with view of a wall! But that didn't matter). The free wine in the lobby between 5-6 was a great... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 14th floor. We could see the empire state building. Amazing! Short walk to time square, maddison square garden and central station. But far enough out of the centre of these places so that it is quiet (as far as quiet gets in NYC) and you feel removed from the hustle and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it perfect for our needs. Rooms were large and clean. Sure they had some tatty edges but it met our expectations. Staff at reception at the door and cleaners were friendly and helpful. Everyone made the effort. We actualky thought Scottys Diner down the street was good also. Much recommended from start... More

We'd have absolutely no hesitation in returning! The location is great (easy walking distance to Grand Central, Empire State etc), and within 5 minutes of the Subway. The room was a good size and the bed was extremely comfy- we slept so well every night. The staff were all very friendly and the complementary wine in the lobby from 5-6... More

We had a last minute trip to NYC with our 4 teens. It's tough to find a room in NYC large enough for a family of 6 so we looked on 6 suitcase and found the Shelburne. According to the housekeeper - there are much larger rooms than the one we got (it was tight with 6 of us) on... More

At Affinia Shelburne we got a suites with separate kitchen, living, bedroom and a spacious bathroom. The location is great, a couple of minutes walking to Grand Central Station. There's a nice view and atmosphere at roof top bar. Rooms are a bit old and soon will call for remodel.

My wife and i are just home from six nights at the Shelburne, and it was all we could have wanted from a Manhattan hotel. All the staff are as helpful as they could be, the room was plenty big enough and the two times we tried the food, it was delicious. The hotel is very well placed; the nearest... More

We stay at the Shelburne every time we hit the city. For us, pulling up curbside and being greeted by our Shelburne friends is like coming home. The entire team goes out of their way to make us feel welcome. The reception at the front desk is always outstanding. The hotel is well kept and the room very comfortable and... More

The Shelburne NYC is classed as a boutique hotel but I assume boutique is code for small and the tiniest bit worn and shabby. Don't get me wrong as the rooms are spotlessly clean, but they painted all the fittings in a dark brown stain which has chipped off in places showing the light wood underneath making it look a...

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.
