We stayed at the Shelburne during 16-19th November 2017. We arrived early into New York after a long flight from the UK to ask if we could store our luggage prior to check-in, at which point the receptionist (an Indian lady) decided to check us in, which we thought was brilliant start. However, upon check-in she asked us for a card to charge a deposit of $50 per night, so $150 in total which would then be reimbursed after check-out, which we were not made aware of when making the booking. After explaining that my cards were not working in the USA she attempted to charge it and as expected it declined. Due to having card issues previously, and as a backup, I always carry a large amount of cash, so offered to pay the deposit in cash, which she was reluctant to accept and advised that the deposit would then need to be charged at a higher rate. The receptionist was frosty and didn’t look as though she cared one bit about our predicament and offered no help or resolution to guests who are 3,000 miles or so from home, after liaising with another person in my party we then charged her card for the $150. My issue here is that this hotel listing on Expedia does not mention anything about deposits being required, unlike other hotels such as the Roosevelt where they are clearly marked and only advises of a resort fee of $32 per night. Unfortunately this overshadowed what was to be a reasonable stay at this hotel, with all the other staff being courteous and friendly. Also, the free wine hour seemed to have been popular amongst the other residents – maybe this is to alleviate the bitter taste of the resort fee and deposit adding an extra $83 per night onto your stay However, as a regular visitor to New York I will not be staying at this hotel again, and it was only booked due to my usual choice of hotel being out of the budget of my traveling companions.

Don't waste your time or money on this tired property. The rooms are dirty and beat. The rooms have noisy through the wall unit heating (no cooling in November, despite the need). The hotel also charges a $30 facilities fee for essentially nothing: afternoon wine tasting (I was never around) and the forced 410 daily purchase of overpriced, unhealthy "snacks." Use it or loose it, they informed me. Collapse

What a great little hotel...Su Mui was most helpful in the reservation process, while Andy was professional, empathetic, and fun! The view we had of the Empire State Building literally brought tears to the eyes of my German friends, seeing New York for the first time. Thank you, Shelburne, for a fantastic NYC visit. Collapse
Stayed here several times. It's a favorite

I will start with the Hotel it's self. Whilst a little dated in décor, we found the Hotel clean and comfortable. We felt welcomed on arrival and despite a mix up with the room number checked in quickly after a long journey. The room it self, a double queen room with a small kitchen area consisting of fridge and microwave. There was the normal hotel oddity of only having 2 of each cups and glasses and so forth, despite being a four person room, this didn't worry us and if needed I'm sure we could have requested some more. The room had a large lcd tv a dressing table plenty of cupboard and draw space and a free to use laptop safe, ironing board, iron and hair dryer. The bathroom had a bath with a shower over and always plenty of hot water. We were lucky enough to have a view out our window with the Chrysler building towering above the other buildings. The room was cleaned every day. The best thing and most important thing about the room was the beds, we all had great nights sleep as they were very, very comfortable! The hotel itself had a bar and a grill downstairs that we didn't use, however it was always busy which is a good sign. One disappointment was the roof top bar... sadly this was closed during our stay, despite the weather being very pleasant at the end of October, the bar was shut for the season. However the roof top area is still available for guest to go up and enjoy the view, and when the tired wife and kids hit the sack after the days walking, I would take a bottle of beer up and enjoy the great views of the city, the Chrysler in one direction and the empire state building in the other. The hotels location was fantastic, it was so easy to get to many of the attractions. It was about a five minute walk to the Empire State building, five minutes to Grand Central Station and about 15 minute walk to time square. Yes there are likely a lot of more upmarket hotels to choose from, but on a budget this hotel is ideal, and if like us your time is short in New York (5 nights) you will be trying to cram every thing in, leaving at 9am in the morning returning 10/11 at night! So a comfy bed is all you need, and this has it! On our leaving day, the door man kindly put our luggage in safe keeping after checking out, as we didn't need to go to the airport until the evening, he also arranged a private car for our trip back and at a very reasonable rate. Now the thank yous, a big thank you to the house keeping staff for their honesty and to the rest of the staff for their help, but especially to Joseline who was a tremendous help to us. And this is why. At JFK departure lounge my Wife realised that her watch was missing. She hadn't worn it for a couple of days and couldn't remember packing it. Speaking to them by email on our return home to England, they had located the watch and offered to help return it. International postage is not the most straight forward of things with custom invoices and such forth, however, I arranged a collection of the watch and forwarded the documentation and shipping labels to Joseline, who packed up the watch securely and made the arrangements for the pickup. I now have a happy Wife whose not so cheap 40th birthday present watch is now back with her. So a big thumbs up to Shelburne NYC not only was our stay very pleasant but you were a great help too, will definitely stay again if we are lucky enough to return to New York. Collapse
