After a multi-million dollar renovation in 2005, The Shoreham finally joined the city’s fashionable hotel clique. The minimalist, white-walled lobby is punctuated with digital art installations and a spare, chic concierge desk. The young staff, dressed in black suits and crisp white shirts, is downright hip. The hotel’s 177 rooms come in all shapes and sizes, from the cramped Superior Queens on up to the 800-square-foot Atrium Loft Penthouse. Upping the relaxation level are Sharper Image iJoy massage chairs in select rooms, five-head rain showers, Aveda bath products, and a 24-hour self-serve cappuccino bar.Pros
A complimentary glass of Champagne upon check-in helps guests to shake off city stress. Touches like comfy Belgian bed linens, 300-count down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, and an in-house fitness center don’t hurt either.
You’re better off leaving the curtains drawn in some of the guest rooms with their not-so beautiful views of brick walls.
