Overview

Zen boutique hotel with top-notch tech perks, a seafood restaurant and sleek bar near Fifth Avenue’s best shops

The Look

Tucked away just off bustling Fifth Avenue, this serene boutique hotel is the perfect escape from New York City’s fast-paced energy, but near enough to the action if you want it. The interiors are done up in contemporary Asian-inspired style (mod lime-green lounge chairs by Japanese designer Kazuhide Takahama line the lobby) and a botanical-themed palette of forest greens.

Bed and Bath

The 177 guestrooms continue the earthy vibe with framed black-and-white plant prints and sage accent walls, headboards and throws on top of pillowy bedding. Find your inner Zen by unwinding in a Sharper Image iJoy massage chair in a One-Bedroom Suite, or opt for a room with a Hansgrohe rainfall shower, Zuma spa tub and Philosophy products in the marble and slate bathroom. All rooms feature tech perks like Bose radios, LG flat-screen TVs and Sony sound systems.

Beyond

The Shoreham Bar makes a splash thanks to designer Donna Glubo-Schwartz’s artistic touch. Translucent walls — made of green silk leaves pressed between panels of aqua glass — spark a sea theme that complements the surf-and-turf fare (don’t miss the fish tacos with grilled sea bass, jalapeño sauce and pineapple salsa). Burn off the calories on the TechnoGym equipment in the 24-hour fitness center. Fashionistas will fawn over the Style Suite, which hosts sample sales for glossy names like Chanel, Fendi and Coach.

In the Area

Reasonable room rates mean guests can afford to splurge in the shops along Fifth Avenue. Exercise that plastic at Zara’s flagship store, and get lost among the racks at Bergdorf Goodman. Art connoisseurs can wander the galleries at the Museum of Modern Art and admire the striking architecture of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Tuck into a lip-licking feast at Ben Pollinger’s seafood mecca Oceana, Nobu Matsuhisa’s eponymous Japanese restaurant Nobu 57, or Andrea Giacomoni’s Italian trattoria Il Corso, just outside The Shoreham’s doors.

Great location, large room
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed 5 nights, bed room was on 4th floor, no view and had 2 king size beds for us and the kids. I was a little worried by the room being close to a large outdoor A/C equipment as it was making a lot of noise 24h/7. After long days visiting we were so tired that it did not matter. Our room was not ready at check in time so had to wait in the lobby a good 45 minutes, the person at the reception gave us wi fi for free in exchange. Staff was overall friendly and reactive. We took this hotel for its location and were not disappointed, you can walk to many places or take the subway nearby. Also we did not try the breakfast but went to some places nearby like “pret à manger”.

Perfect

Nyc family vacation
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed here while on a family vacation for a week and loved it! We had a one bedroom suite which was perfect so my son could have his own space and we could have ours too. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially a gentlemen named Justin in the attached restaurant/bar. This young man was so helpful and welcoming every night we saw him. He really made it feel like we were coming home at night when he welcomed us each day after a long day of sight seeing around the city. He always had fresh made popcorn available for my son too which was a huge hit. Would definitely come back again

enjoyable stay
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Just back from an enjoyable and action packed week holiday in NYC. I was very happy and impressed with the hotel. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable and clean but surely need to provide tea and coffee facilities in the rooms of a 4* hotel.The staff were very courteous, friendly and attentive and were always helpful and obliging in any request or responding to any enquiries. The location is ideal and perfect and only a ten minutes walk from some of the city's fabulous attractions such as Central Park, Time Square and Rockefeller building.

Four star hotel?? Couldn't tell.....
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I know that location location location is still a great argument. And it has a great location. But a 4 star hotel should should guarantee a certain standard.

No free WiFi at rooms, only at the hallway seems really cheap. It is depressive to see the entrance all ways full of guests trying to catch up with their phones and laptops. There are no tables or comfortable seats that could compensate that.

Room with no bed side table on one of the sides - who will be the sacrificed one? So where should I put my mobile / alarm clock?

No refrigerator? Not even to sell a little drink?

I'm sorry but it didn't feel like a 4star hotel at all.
