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.
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.
How to Get There
Not fancy but does the trick and the front desk folks are nice. Cross the street for a fancy drink at the Peninsula and save money on a room by staying here. MOMA is right around the corner plus all the delights of Fifth Ave shopping.
First time in NYC and after seeing the pictures I was a bit dissapointed when I arrived in the hotel. In my opinion rooms and facilities don't look like a 4-star hotel. I had to ask for another room because there was a permanent noise coming from the outside. The second room was bigger but the noise was even worse. Windows should be changed to avoid noises. The location was the only really good thing I saw.
The Shoreham was the best place to stay.
Right in the heart of Manhattan. A quick walk to the Subway, Central Park, Time Square and so much more. Anthony at the front desk was lovely, helpful and was always there to direct us to our next destination. The rooms were clean and functional and so well priced considering the location. I thoroughly recommend this place for anyone wanting the ultimate New York experience.
