We stayed at this hotel last month and it was our first experience with the Affinia chain. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the L.I.E. tunnel, but rush hour traffic made the ride from LaGuardia seem an eternity. Check in was a breeze though we didn't get an upper floor room that we'd requested until the third...

Stayed at the Shelburne over the Christmas holidays & felt like this was the most impersonal hotel we have ever stayed at. When we checked in the girl behind the desk was rude & very sarcastic.

This is a wonderful hotel , very comfortable with nicely sized rooms for Manhattan, clean and very attractive. The service is wonderful. It is a little off the beaten path for midtown, but I think this is a plus. Just a few short blocks and you are in the midst of midtown. I personally prefer the feel of a neighbourhood.

The Affinia Shelburne is a very nice hotel in a good location in NYC. Our room, a king deluxe suite, was roomy and comfortable. It had a kitchenette, too, which added to its convenience. The large windows brought in lots of natural light, but had light-blocking shades that could be rolled down.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
