Spent 9 nights here in April. Family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. One of the things I love best about US hotels is the ability to stay as a family in one room allowing families to stay in nice hotels economically. After all, in NYC who spends time in their room! What was great was to return to a comfortable room and friendly, helpful service. Added bonus was the laundry room in the basement for guest use. Great for families! Location of the hotel was perfect, Midtown but away from the touristy bustle of Times Square. Lots of delicious local restaurants to dine in in the evenings we were too exhausted to venture far, a couple of nice local espresso bars for our morning coffee. I'd return! Collapse
mixed...but really worth considering, especially for families...

this hotel really has both good and bad...and as long as you know that, its worth considering. The location of the hotel is in the Murray Hill area of NYC, so its a little more residential. Its quieter and not in a "hip area" or a particularly touristy area...so that could be a positive, or a negative, depending on what you are looking for. The furniture and carpets are a little more worn out. on the other hand, this hotel really offers so much more space then most hotels, especially for a family - this really is a great option. its not "slick" but its spacious and has everything you need. the shower is so great...but for us, the sofa bed was broken, the master bedroom door didn't close, and they put us in the wrong room to start with - but then switched us as soon as we asked, and they moved all our stuff for us. The manager was pretty confrontational with several guests, rude with us, and we witnessed him in a pretty argumentative state with several customers - but then, on the other hand, we also had the nicest doorman, and the cleaner person just did a consistently fantastic job. It is true that they add a lot of extra fees which I know that other reviewers have mentioned. which again, may not be ideal but if you are aware ahead of time its not so bad. The best thing, is that its not expensive, but theres a lot of space, in a safe, comfortable, reliable place. Collapse

Had a suite. Good size. But bed meh. Bathroom tiny. Ridiculous. Only 2 elevators is th biggest issue. Many times you'll find yourself waiting precious New York time to get an elevator, primarily from the lobby.

I really appreciated the location. Most attractions are within walking distance and Grande Central Station is just around the corner for easy subway travel. Plus the Shelburne is away from the crazy busy area of Midtown Manhattan. It's so nice to come back to a quiet neighbourhood. The rooms, while not posh are clean and comfortable. The bed was super comfortable and room darkening shades were appreciated too. Some reviewers have complained about the resort fee but I can't see how you could not know about it. I had read about it when I booked and also was advised at check-in. The $25 fee didn't bother me. $15 is internet access per room per day, while $10 is for the self serve commissary in the lobby. My friend and I would stop by on our way in at night and grab munchies or water. No big deal. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. We were on the 10th floor and didn't hear much traffic at all. There was some refurbishing going on in the hall one morning but when I poked my head out and mentioned we were still sleeping, the crew appologized and relocated. I guess they have to do it sometime and they always have guests. I also have to give credit to Eddie who was extra helpful when I left items in our room when we checked out. He called me several times to get details for mailing items back etc. Top notch service. We visited the bar the first night, service was fine. but the room had a fridge so we bought wine up the street and enjoyed it in suite where it was comfortable, private and quiet. It's easy to recommend the Shelburne, I would certainly stay here again. Collapse

We were travelling, but also had to work while visiting NY. The room was not ready by 3 as it should have been, we had to wait around until 4pm so that was disappointing. However the hotel provided us with very good facilities and comfort once we got checked in. We stayed a week so we could be in one spot and get work done. The location was very central and we walked nearly everywhere. There was an all night dinner down the road (Scotty's) which was very handy for us as we would work late into the night to be working in Australian time and would often have dinner at 2 am. They hotel had complimentary wine tasting between 5 and 6pm each evening, which was lovely and was very social. We meet some lovely people there. There is also a very good coffee shop a couple of doors down. The hotel has a nice restaurant which stays open until 12 am. We got back one night at 11:30pm and had a lovely salad and truffle fries. We did have calamari there too one day for lunch but that was disappointing. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. Collapse
