A reliable Midtown chain housed in a landmark, Art Deco building.
This hotel sits between Rockefeller Center and the United Nations. It offers a worthy combination of modern amenities and traditional charm. The building dates to 1924, and boasts some interesting historical associations. Georgia O'Keeffe painted it in 1926, Errol Flynn swam in the original basement pool and Xavier Cugat occupied the penthouse in the 1950s. The busy lobby has the look of a private club, with its warm oak paneling and marble floor. The 646 oversize rooms combine old-fashioned spaciousness with such features as dual-line phones with data ports, safes and hair dryers, in addition to other amenities. The on-site fitness center is open 24 hours daily. Dining can be enjoyed at the Shelton Grille, while the M Club Lounge offers guests breakfast daily, as well as hot and cold beverages in a comfortable space.
