My family and I stayed in Affinia Shelburne from December 30 (2013) to January 3 (2014), and got the one bedroom suite. My wife and kids couldn't be happier. The suite felt like a whole flat, really spacious. The living room had a huge sofa bed, a TV couch and a nice dining table. The room was spacious, simple yet... More

The hotel is well located, is five blocks from Grand Station. The room is quite large and comfortable, has nice decor. And a small kitchen with fridge and microwave which even allow you to make your meal.

This was my first time since remodeling and I was pleasantly please. Good sized, clean, nicely decorated rooms and baths (great tile shower!). And the daily 5-6pm Free Wine Happy Hour was wonderful. Service was excellent, great people work there. A strong value overall in a nice neighborhood setting.

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.
