Like a fine wine, the Affinia Shelburne is a hotel that only seems to get better with age. Occupying a 1920s Art Deco building in Manhattan, the old world elegance has been retained in the hotel lobby which is resplendent with fireplaces and Oriental rugs. Overall, the hotel interiors combine warm tones and cozy details, such as plush couches in the common areas.
Old World elegance and gourmet burgers
The hotel's 325 rooms boast dark wood furnishings, chaise loungers, flat-screen TVs with web browsing, and spa-inspired bathrooms. Suites with kitchenettes are ideal for longer stays and the hotel offers a convenient grocery delivery service. The Affinia Shelburne has a full-service business center and a 24-hour fitness center, but from 5 to 6 PM each day most guests can be found in the lobby mingling over a glass of house red at the complimentary wine tasting. Afterwards, move up to the RARE restaurant and rooftop bar for views of sparkling skyscrapers at sunset and the best gourmet burgers in Manhattan.
Welcome to Murray Hill
The Affinia Shelburne is located in Midtown Manhattan in a residential area known as Murray Hill. Offering a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, the neighborhood is still central for sightseeing with Grand Central Station, the New York Library, and the Empire State Building, as well as the shops of Fifth Avenue, all just a ten-minute walk away.

Comfortable bed. Helpful staff. Great location.
Additional taxes on final payment. It would be better if toatl price was quoted that included all extra taxes.
The people in the hotel are great! Good service, good hotel room and also a good fare.
The location was perfect! The rooftop was wonderful - quiet and peaceful in the early morning and a really nice place to have a drink in the evening. The staff were amazing!
The sofa bed in our room was not functioning and we therefore had to have a roll in bed.

Decor was slight out dated. However, typical for NYC
