The Shelburne is a recently refurbished hotel on Lexington Ave. However, beware, the rooms,although comfortable and large by New York standards, are extremely noisy. The Hotel is frequented by mainly business people and you will be disturbed constantly by doors slamming and loud conversation at all times of the day and night. Moreover, the Hotel allows pets and you may have the misfortune to end up, as we did, next door to one which barked non stop to the point where we had to insist on a change of room.
We loved New York ,which is a vibrant and exciting city but we will stay at another Hotel next time
