"Do not expect much"
Best of the hotel: location. Between 5th and 6th. 2nd best: restaurant just in front "Le Bonne Soup" First night hotel assigned me room 317: I arrived at 2 am, completely tired. It felt my bed was in the middle of sixth Avenue. Noise is totally unacceptable. The hotel does not count with acoustic windows. I asked for room change so hotel assigned me internal 814. No noise although terrible view to escalators. Rooms are a bit small but ok for NYC. Carpet is old and used, looks dirty. TV old and damaged, and signal quite bad. Bed is average. Cleanliness I would say 8.5/10. Shower I have to say was pretty good. Very good water pressure and comfy. Would really have to think on getting back.
If you're looking for a comfortable bed and a little luxury - the shoreham isn't for you. The location is great and the staff are quite friendly but that's as far as it goes. The rooms are very small and you can JUST get the bathroom door shut if you're on the toilet. Definitely needs some upgrading! Thankfully, we didn't spend much time in the hotel as we were out and about, so if you're not fussed for little luxuries and comfort then give it a try. Personally, I won't be booking for here again as the bed was so uncomfortable and the room was just a bit too small and dated. There are plenty of hotels around this area ( near Times Square) so I'll be trying one of those next time.
"Great location. Awful bed"
We have stayed at the shoreham before, it is very conveniently located on 55th and 5th ave. It is spartan, clean and the crew are very friendly. We switched from a king-size bed room (small and the bathroom is really tiny) to a two-room suite midweek to accommodate our family and the new room was perfect. The bathroom was of decent size and overall the accommodations were fine. Our main complain was the bed, it is too soft and noisy and had a hole in the middle. This could have been bad luck in one room but all beds were the same. I suffer from back ache so I didn't sleep well all week. Other than that we miss the morning coffee in the lobby but the cookies in the afternoon are a nice touch.
"Well managed and great staff"
Stated there for five days in April... Very accommodating staff at the front desk who found us a room to check in at 8am... Lication is awesome near plenty of restaurants and broadway theaters. Great hotel to stay at
Room was exactly as described. Great location and friendly staff. Only issue was quoted price of valet parking, and small bathroom but all in all a quality experience. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
