Spent a long weekend in New York and stayed at Fifty NYC. We have stayed at other Affinia hotels and NY including this one. It has a great location on 50th and 3rd just a block from the subway 51st and Lex. and with plenty of good restaurants nearby. Good breakfast locations just up the street on 50th and Ess-a-bagel...

We had a lovely time staying at Fifty NYC - Affinia 50, when we stayed. Our family of 4 (2 teenage boys) spent 8 nights in NYC in September 2014. The room was fabulous, the location brilliant. We so enjoyed the welcome Rome and Izzy gave us when we came home. We would recommend this Hotel.

I have stayed in other hotels in NY, and this was by far the smallest, noisiest and draftiest room ever. The front desk staff was friendly and enthusiastic. It went downhill from there. We were told we would have a king size bed, and got a queen size. Housekeeping was negligent about several things in the room. I informed the... More

The room was modern, clean and very decently sized for NYC standards. It could easily fit 4 people (parents and kids). The only hiccup was that arrived at 3pm and the room wasn't ready (the lady at the desk wasn't particularly nice). I was asked to wait on their lounge and they would call me back. More than one hour... More

I had quite a bit of interact with hotel staff and was very pleased with their customer service. Our room was spacious and comfortable.

Staying at the Fifty was like an episode of Fawlty Towers, with inept and argumentative front desk and an uncoordinated "upsell app" that offers rooms and services that are not available which the local management has to rescind. But, this was my fault. I was in a hurry and the location looked OK. I gave the reviews a cursory look... More

I stayed with The Fifty for two nights, and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Based on the lobby, I did not quite know what to expect from the rooms. But once I got to my room, I was very happy. The hotel has obviously had a recent renovation, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I had very limited... More

There are two key factors hindering this establishment from becoming one of the best in NY. 1) Management 2) Housekeeping.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
