Midtown East - Grand Central

Shelburne, NYC – an Affinia Hotel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Rooms are at least 50% larger than the New York City average, and reasonably priced suites have a full kitchen and a pillow menu
  • The hotel's rooftop bar is a local hot-spot and has views of the Chrysler building
  • Ideal for couples and families due to size of rooms (although it's near corporate offices as well)

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Although Murray Hill might not be as well-known a New York neighborhood as, say, Times Square, it's lack of national recognition means it's a popular place for locals to settle. It also means, it's a great place for visitors to find a quiet night's sleep. 

Though this location is not typically within walking distance to big sights: Grand Central Terminal and the Chrysler Building are within a 20-minutes walk or a $10 cab ride. The United Nations, Times Square and the Empire State Building are within a 40-minute walk or a short 10-minute cab ride. This location is better for visitors looking for an "off the beaten" option away from the crowds and traffic noise.

At the hotel, rooms are particularly spacious for Manhattan, with a pillow menu that lets you pick from six fluffy options. Head further up to the top floor to reach the rooftop bar. Open seasonally, it serves up views of skyscrapers along with fancy drinks. Accompany your drinks with gourmet burgers that are available in the lobby restaurant.

Avoid getting a room by the elevator. The constant traffic to and from the elevator was pretty loud.

Spacious room size for NYC
Other Comments
Asked for new drinking glasses as the ones I had received appeared as if someone has left toothpaste remains in the glass - took two calls an an hour later to be brought the glasses, was cleaning hair off of sink and bath, had to clean out the mini refrigerator in the room, fire alarm went off in the middle of the night - multiple announcements that it was a false alarm but it appeared to take them 20 minutes to figure out how to turn it off. Lastly the staff for the most part were not incredibly friendly.
