Hotel Spotlight: The Shelburne NYC

Nestled in a haven of chic cocktail bars and cafés, pre-war brownstones, and post-college young professionals seeking brunch or nightlife on the East Side is the Shelburne NYC, an undeniably gratifying boutique hotel for business travellers in Manhattan’s lively Murray Hill.
 
The Shelburne’s commitment to cool art makes for a striking lobby, where guests can expect to see everything from brightly coloured leather walls to projected animations, creating a down-to-earth and artsy atmosphere. The theme of the art even enters the guest rooms—the type of imaginative décor you can expect will end up on someone’s social media after a visit.
 
The Shelburne hosts 325 guest rooms and suites (200-350 sq. ft.), with the features and comforts, iHome docking stations, flat-screen TVs, kitchenettes or minibars, and high-quality mattresses, which Affinia Hotels considers to be standard. A pillow menu, with 6 types to choose from, is offered to all guests. One of the pillows even allows you to plug in a portable music player, softening the sounds for jet-lagged patrons to lullaby themselves goodnight. Your move, insomniacs.
 
If you are not familiar with the Shelburne’s RARE View New York rooftop lounge, it’s worth the Google. City lights serve as a muse for the vibrant and intimately social rooftop, collecting some of New York’s most well-known buildings and the East River in its gaze—the perfect place for a private event. If your trip to Midtown Manhattan gets you in the mood for some classic American food, Rare Bar & Grill at the Shelburne NYC serves one of the best gourmet burgers in the city. Rare adds some style and flare to traditional American food—shredded brisket quesadilla, a lobster burger, and a vegetarian burger that could fill up a bear—and that will show through all the way to the breakfast and snacks.
