U.S. News Review

Beds with pillow-top mattresses, Philosophy bath products in the accommodations and complimentary cappuccinos or espressos from 6 to 11 a.m. are just a few of the reasons guests feel like superstars at midtown Manhattan's Shoreham Hotel. This luxury boutique appeals to those looking for easy access to top attractions — Central Park and Broadway included — as well as a relaxing urban oasis for unwinding from Gotham's buzzing city streets. Accommodations are outfitted with desirable amenities, including sleek flat-screen TVs, Bose CD players and 300-thread-count linens. Travelers describe the property as clean, spacious and convenient, praising the modern decor that extends from the chic lobby to the stylish Shoreham Bar. And though a few guests do say that some rooms are in need of a revamp, most say the cool atmosphere and friendly staff make up for this slight drawback.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“Most people don't think of midtown Manhattan as a place to chill out — but don't tell the Shoreham, a 177-room hotel that resembles a chic spa retreat.”


“Extremely contemporary design, free shoeshine and a greeting with champagne doesn't make up for the fact that a lot of the rooms here are small and dark…[but] room rates do include a 24-hour self-service coffee bar, continental breakfast and the ministrations of a staff that really does seem to care.”
