About Affinia Shelburne
Located in Murray Hill, a midtown neighborhood revived by a recent influx of young Manhattan professionals (and the great restaurants and nightlife that inevitably followed), Affinia Shelburne offers visitors a quiet slice of New York life smack in the middle of all that the island offers. While it’s an easy trip to downtown neighborhoods like Greenwich Village and SoHo and exciting midtown attractions, you might have a hard time leaving the sleek, 2009-renovated hotel’s walls.
Hard to find in most Manhattan hotels is space – even rarer: outdoor space. Affinia Shelburne offers both, with 325 rooms and suites (that are larger than most NYC studio apartments), and rooftop access. Rare View, the hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge, offers tables for gathering, drinks for winding down, and unparalled views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
As with all Affinia properties, Affinia Shelburne is especially adept at making families feel at home. Suites feature sleeper sofas and kitchenettes, concierge-tailored “Fun-for-family” kits which include board games, and the hotel will even provide rubber duckies for bath time. Cribs and high chairs are complimentary, and the area abounds with great family-friendly restaurants (not to mention in-house Rare Bar and Grill with its top-notch burgers and cozy steakhouse atmosphere).
Business travelers can expect the best, as well. Rooms are equipped with work desks and Wi-Fi and the hotel offers secretarial services and boasts a business center with an added sitting area (complete with a collection of best-selling novels if you need to take your mind off work). Finish up the workday with a brisk workout in the 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness center with its selection of cardio and weight-training machines, or, if you’re in the mood for some pampering, book an in-room “SPAffinia” massage.
Did you know?
The hotel chain hired a CCO (Chief Comfort Officer) to handpick and train the staff in support of its TLC (Tender Loving Comfort) movement, ensuring the highest level of comfort for guests.
Affinia hotels offer an array of free New York-geared “Experience Kits” to enhance your stay in the city; choices include a BYOB kit with a picnic blanket and neoprene wine/beer carrier; a fitness kit with exercise DVDs, a Yoga mat and weights; and a walking kit with a guidebook, map and an iPod loaded with an Affinia walking tour.
Located in quieter (by Manhattan standards!) Murray Hill, with its wealth of restaurants and nightlife and a quick trip from downtown neighborhoods and uptown attractions, this hotel is ideal for families and business travelers.
