We just returned from our first trip to NYC and had a blast. We had nothing to compare our hotel to since this was our first visit, but we enjoyed our stay immensely. The rooftop bar was not open but we enjoyed the view just the same. The "Rare" bar was a nice spot to enjoy after we walked all over. We took subways and found them easy and accessible from the Shelburne. We enjoyed Fagiolini's Restauarant just up the street (best cheesecake I have ever had). The food, service and price were all super.
Libretto's on 3rd Avenue was a great little spot, too. The meatball sandwich hit the spot on a cool fall day.
I would recommend this hotel and would return, although I would love to try the Benjamin (just not sure if it is worth the extra $$$).
P.S. We saw "Avenue Q" at the Golden Theatre and loved it, too!

We stayed at the Shelburne in early October 2005 having seen positive reviews on this site and following many visits to NYC.

The hotel is located in a 'real' local Manhattan district with super delis, cafes and even french cleaners but none of the plastic cacaphony of more traditional tourist quarters. It's safe and accessible as only 5 minutes walk away is Grand Central...with its connections everywhere.

The rooms are massive by NY standards, the beds very comfortable, bathrooms clean and there's even a kitchen -a bit pointless in this town but nice to have. In many ways it feels more an apartment than hotel-type experience and you feel at home straight away. Yet the Shelburne is a hotel and its lobby is Ok and its relaxation lounge is stunning - however the highlight is the 16th floor open top roof bar which even in October was packed till late. Impress your NY friends by inviting them over for a cocktail under the Chrysler Building...

We also ate at the 'rare' restaraunt and thought its classic american burgers and salads were excellent - even if the drinks are a little pricy. Take breakfasts at Blooms across the road where you get service with a Romanian smile...

We noticed that W is opening across the street - great, it means the style junkies get ther fix while we can hog the real deal...

I just returned from an AWESOME girls weekend. Four girlfriends and I left our husbands with the kids and headed for NYC. It was our first time in NYC and let me tell you the staff at Shelburne made it easy. They were easy to talk to, they explained everything clearly, and they gave great directions. Time Square is walking distance, Canal Street is a cab ride away. The one bedroom was a great size. The bathroom was small but we made do. AC was a little weak so it was somewhat warm but we got by. The doorman was ready to hail a cab for us and tell the driver exactly where to take us. We were upgraded to a bigger room and given a complimentary bottle of wine. OH! and the staff at the Rare bar and grill were so friendly and the food was great. I didn't have the FAMOUS BURGERS but I has a cobb salad and it was GREAT. Our stay was amazing and the four of us will be back next year. We've decided our husbands go for a guy weekend every year, so we have Shelburne every year. Can't wait to go back. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights in September for a conference in midtown Manhattan. It was more expensive than I had hoped for but that may have been partly because of the United Nations convention which used every hotel room in NY, filled the city with police and blocked off a number of streets as the world's leaders arrived and departed.
I booked a studio suite which had two double beds so the room could have accommodated two or more people easily. The bathroom was quite small but perfectly serviceable. The kitchen was a real bonus and was well equipped. As other reviews have mentioned, the room could have been improved by refurbishment but it was perfectly clean and comfortable. The desk staff and doormen were very helpful and friendly although they were extremely busy. I ordered room service one evening and it was very good and reasonably priced.
The location was ideal for my conference venue, but also for the Chrysler Building (my favourite), the Empire State Building, Central Park and all the midtown area. I loved my weekend and would definitely stay at this hotel (or one of the other Affinia hotels) again - as long as I could afford it.

Great building in good location - very nice suites. We paid $400 total per night for 1 bedroom rooftop suite - comfortable, attractive. Staff exceptionally helpful, particularly for NY. Shouldn't charge for wireless internet at $9.95 per day which didn't work in our room (staff offered to change rooms/never charged us). It's par for hotels in this class though. Great rooftop view bar but best for younger set - not close enough to cause any disturbance to rooms on rooftop floor. (and you get a great view from room 16E!) Definitely will stay there again when in NY.
