It’s hard to get more old-school Manhattan than the Shoreham’s midtown location. On 55th between 5th and 6th it’s close by to the park, Rockefeller Center, Times Square and the theatre district, as well as some of be best upscale shopping in the world along 5th Avenue.
Until recently it had a classic Manhattan look to match, a sort of dramatic prewar Gotham style, which has since been traded in for something brighter and more contemporary — some rooms in warm tones with stainless-steel headboards, others in cool whites, with translucent backlit Shoji doors. It’s not exactly South Beach, but for New York, it’s surprisingly sunny.
Though the Shoreham is clearly a mid-price boutique, comforts are plentiful; rooms are spacious enough, this being Manhattan and all, and they pack in a fair bit of luxury. The penthouse suites are over-the-top, as penthouses tend to be, complete with outdoor terraces and jacuzzi tubs; even the standard rooms, though, come with pillow-top mattresses and highly functional modern marble and slate bathrooms. Along with the restaurant, serving world-spanning modern cuisines, and the Shoreham Bar, stylish in green silk and translucent glass, there’s a gallery and events space and even a small fitness center.
