Stayed on honeymoon in June 2012.

The hotel staff are very friendly and welcoming. They gave us a free upgrade and a bottle of bubbly, which was a lovely touch.

The hotel is very modern and well appointed.Its close to all the attractions and the subway to allow you to explore NYC.

The free wi-fi in the lobby is a bonus (although the Irish pub 100 yds away also has it + very nice food).

I would recommend booking the VIP package for the wine, cupcake and free upgrade.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. I got a great rate on priceline. My only complaint is that the rooms were on the small side but very nice. Rare downstairs has great burgers. We will be staying here again soon!

We booked a Studio Deluxe Suite for 6 nights and we're very happy with our choice.
The hotel staff is very helpfull and they are fast and efficient even when the lobby is full with other guests.
The room was quite big and it was clean and modern and we didn't hear any noise from the other rooms.
The location is fantastic: within 5 minutes you're at Grand Central and from here you can go everywhere, you can also just walk to the Empire State Building because the hotel is within walking distance. There are also many high quality restaurants nearby so you don't have to walk too much for dinner.

We booked the Affinia Shelburne after a stay at the Affinia 50 a few months ago.

The Sheburne is nicely located in mid-town and just a couple of blocks from 5th ave, Park Ave and Madison. We could also walk to the theater and to Saint Patricks for mass.

Room seemed to be newly refurbished and was in top condition. Our king size bedroom was a adequate size, bathroom was small but fine. Not a room for a family though. Our room was located near the elevator and so there was some noise at night.

Staff was good enough. We arrived early and they did have a room available for us.

Only complaint is lack of free wi fi in rooms. It is available in the lobby but $13.95 a day to check your e-mail is ridiculous in 2012.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from elevators and foot traffic.

i Loved the stay and the rains in NY.....Affinia rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs and in-room movies. Seating areas and coffee makers are also included. Select rooms have kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwaves, and the hotel offers a convenient grocery shopping service.The hotel has a gym that is open 24 hours a day, as well as a business center.

The Empire State Building is a 10-minute walk from the Shelburne Affinia. Rockefeller Center and Museum of Modern Art are a 15-minute subway ride away.

Comfort by design. Like every Affinia hotel, Affinia Shelburne offers an experience in total comfort, customized by you.

My family and I stayed for five nights in NY this summer (2012). Our guest room was very clean and comfortable. Prices charged weren't abusive and the staff was always ready to meet our needs. The room was silent and spacious and the fridge was very helpful, making us feel at home.
This hotel is placed in a great location, between the business blocks and the commercial area around Times Square. Besides this, we felt safe to walk around a peaceful and clean neighborhood towards the 3rd Avenue, plenty of varied restaurants, markets and bars. This is a hotel for people who praise the good things of life but want to keep distance from the ostensive life style of millionaires and Arab sheiks. This is definitely a great place to enjoy a comfortable and casual stay in NY.
