Just got back from a great stay at the Shelburne. I have previously stayed at the Affinia Garden and loved it too. The one bedroom suite was beyond spacious. We traveled with our two teenage children and booked the suite because NY hotels tend to have small rooms. The bedroom fit two queen beds comfortably. There are two large modern wardrobes for clothing and a large flat screen tv in the bedroom. The living room had a pullout couch, a recliner, and was large. It also included another closet and another flatscreen tv. The kitchen area had a microwave and a refrigerator/ freezer with ice maker. The room was very clean and it was always cleaned early. They have a pillow menu :) the neighborhood is within walking distance of Times Square and the Bryant Park area, also Macy's. It is truly the quietest neighborhood I've ever stayed in, in NYC. The 10.00 a day fee that some have talked about in previous reviews is something that his factored into the final price upon booking on the hotel website so it was not a surprise and actually came in handy. We didn't have to go out and buy water or snacks. The staff was very nice and friendly. I truly love staying at the NYC Affinia properties and I highly recommend them. Collapse

First time staying at this hotel. The room was very big with 2 queen beds, a mini kitchen and bathroom. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a gym facility and a lounge bar. The only drawback was that there is nothing close by. There is one little cafe but the prices were ridiculous. Found we had to take a taxi everywhere. Collapse
Never again ,no more Affinia for me.

First of all let me start saying that I don't like writing reviews like this one but I feel like I have to express myself since my experience was not pleasant at all at this hotel. My wife checked in along with my kids and I arrived about an hour later , when I went to the room , I couldn't believe what I saw , old and very worn furniture, dirty bathroom ,dirty coffeemaker,dirty Mini fridge,filthy rug,no utensils other than two coffee cups, two glasses,two spoons and a wine opener, nothing else. I went down to the front desk and exlplained the situation and was offered another room , that was supposed to be an upgrade because it had a separate sofa bed , but guess what it was even dirtier than the first one , I found rice in the sofa bed and lots of dust , and that room was bigger but didn't have the pantry kitchen just a mini fridge which was very dirty,we decided to stay in the first room because we were tired from our road trip and with the weather we weren't in the mood of finding another hotel and moving etc. Last year we stayed at the Dumont which is a better hotel by the way just three blocks down on the 34th St., and overall it was better stay but we weren't happy with the overall cleanliness of the room , but I decided to give Affinia another try thinking that maybe it was because of the high season or something like that but what a mistake. I've stayed at all the Affinia NY hotels except the Manhattan and the Shelburne has the best Lobby of all of them and also the Rare Grill is good, those are the Pro's of the Shelburne., Also the staff service is very good and they're very polite and helpful but Affinia really needs to train their house keeping staff and improve the cleanliness of their properties . Personally I'll never stay here again, I might stay at the Gardens again if I can get a good deal but I doubt it the Gardens is always way more expensive. Collapse
All Around Great Choice!

After living for many years in NYC, I'm always excited to visit... the Shelburne makes me feel like I'm coming home... first, the front desk, accommodating, relaxed and fun!! Shout out to "Anddy".... a gem at the front... will make you smile. The rooms are more than adequate in size,the suites are larger than most in this price range...... the location ( if you like being in Murray Hill, as I do)... is perfect...Great restaurants with in a few block walk ... all around great choice!!!

I stayed here last June with my teenage daughter and college grad niece. We were wanting to explore both ends of town so I thought this would be a good central location. However, it wasn't near any convenient subway lines. It was only a few blocks from Grand Central however. Also, the Murry Hill neighborhood was more business than I cared for. We also booked the hotel for the use of the rooftop bar and based on it's cheery decor I expected more of a restaurant atmosphere but instead access was controlled by several bouncers and overwhelmed with loud club music. I was disappointed. Maybe it's my middle age, but I guess this was more of an after work hangout for the younger business people in Murry Hill. Oh well. ....Otherwise, the room was large, stylish and adequate for 3 people with 2 queen beds. I would have appreciated more of a city skyline view, but we were facing the street at least. One other feature I didn't care for was having to pay daily for Wifi. In this day and age, it should be a given amenity. Don't think I would stay here again. Certainly not the worst place I've stayed in NYC; in fact I would say it's a solid mid-range (a little tired in some ways) that borders on luxury if you were to seriously compare it to something for $100 bucks a night in Chinatown! However, for what I paid, I don't feel the value matched the experience. Granted it was late June and prices spike then, but still, I've been happier. Collapse
