“great location”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

You can't beat the location of this hotel but that's all that is great. I don't understand how this hotel was rated 4*.
There's no real lobby, just a check in desk. Rooms are quite small but ours was quite functional. The bathroom is small but has a large shower. Sink area is very small and difficult to get ready there.
Unlike other reports, we found the hotel to be very clean-just not attractive at all.

I just stayed here in October and it was lovely. The staff were awesome (especially victor who did my check out). Another member of staff gave me perfect directions to Wall Street (sorry...didn't get his name). The staff were just lovely to me! The room was nice...no issues. Plenty of space...clean etc. food wasn't too bad. The location was fabulous...just off 5th avenue!!! Times Square and Central Park was very close....I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for a lovely stay!

We liked the Shoreham, and would stay there again.
Tiny room, but it's New York and pretty affordable, so I wouldn't expect any different. The room was very nicely appointed though. Only odd thing was that there was only 1 bath towel. I tried to call the front desk to report it but the phone didn't work! So I took the elevator down and asked. Three hours later, they still hadn't been sent up. I found an employee in the hallway and asked him, and he took care of it quickly. That's the reason I gave 4 bells instead of 5.
The bar doesn't open til 5:00, but the front desk graciously offered us 2 free glasses of champagne as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
The mixed drinks in the bar are excellent- whichever the drink is with the lychee was amazing.
We ate at PizzArte right down the street. Wow...this pizza is the real deal! I highly recommend it!

Spent two nights at the Shoreham recently. Our stay coincided with UN Week so all hotel pricing was at a premium. That being said, the price we paid was still reasonable. The rooms were maybe a little aged but very comfortable, and the location is perfect for what we were doing. Best of all the staff was tremendous. Unfailingly helpful and polite. Special thanks to Jonathon at the front desk who went out of his way to make sure our stay was a good one. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: can be a bit noisy on the lower floors

My short one night stay at Shoreham turned around a dreadful start of my holiday to a special one.
Tiny room but very comfortable, clean, great location within safe neighborhood & service.
If anything, I wished that the wifi internet was also made available in the rooms. Otherwise, keep up the good work. I will definitely return.

I have been staying at the Shoreham for the past 11 years and for me it is always home away from home. From the friendly faces of Safi, Junior, Haseem and the rest of the crew on the front door through to Sunny in the bar,the staff who have over the years become friends are real gems and are always so helpful going above and beyond to ensure my stay is comfortable. The modern style rooms are always very neat, tidy and clean. Location is great being close to central park and all major branded stores with some great eatery's close by.Highly recommended.

Dear Ama80,
It’s an honor to have such loyal guests who call the Shoreham their second home when in New York. Safi, Junior, Hassan, and Sunny are wonderful- always working hard to make every guest feel comfortable and welcome, time after time. Our housekeeping staff is great, keeping our rooms in great condition for every new guest. Thank you again for your continued patronage, and your friends at the Shoreham look forward to seeing you back real soon.

Stayed two nights here during our short visit. The location is great. It is within walking distance to Time Square and the park. Room is not quite spacious but very clean and quiet. We really like the modern decoration.
