We’ve stayed here twice now and it’s definitely my go to NYC. Great staff, spacious rooms and perfect location for me- may not be centrally located if a true tourist but easy to get cab Uber and subway. No amenities - restaurant, bar, etc but great neighborhood restaurants to explore and a spacious lobby for meals that are brought in!

This hotel is conveniently located. It is slightly dated (e.g., bathrooms, etc) and one of the elevatros was out of order the whole time we were there. This made getting up and down to the room a major challenge. Some staff were much nicer than oth

While it looks a little dated in some areas, the rooms were clean, modern, & pretty spacious for NYC. Room had a fridge with a large ice maker, microwave, & sink that I was not expecting… pleasant surprise! The staff was very friendly & helpful. The only “negative” is not the hotel’s fault per se… COVID protocols still have any food (room) service & the lobby bar shut down, but there were other options in a short walking distance. I would absolutely stay here again.

The location was great for what I needed. It's not a far walk from Grand Central Station. The area also has several good restaurants (Dimsum Garden is great). The staff made us feel welcomed and called us by our names. I will definitely be back.

I have stayed at the Shelburne hotel quite a few times over the past few years. It’s always been a pretty good value due to its central location and the relatively generous size of its rooms. Unfortunately our recent stay was disappointing. We were given an inside room with no outside view which let no light in. The bedding was pretty shabby also. Just a very light blanket, no comforter or bedspread, no extra throw blanket, and three small, lumpy pillows for a big king size bed. I had to ask housekeeping for an additional blanket and pillow. The bathroom was also a bit shabby, with a toilet paper holder that was almost falling off the wall, and a small tub/shower. The hotel needs a serious updating…
