We stayed on a Friday & Saturday night - largest room that we have had in a NYC hotel. Location met our needs, very close to our daughters apartment although some may want something a little closer to downtown. Service was great; all of the desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Pedro at the front desk went above and... More

The hotel served its purpose well. Nice bed, bath and location. We weren't there long enough to take advantage of cooking in, but kitchen was adequate as well. Either a much quieter refrigerator, or a door into the kitchen, would have been a huge improvement. Almost shut it down, but didn't want to risk damage due to defrosting. And got... More

I just got back from a extended weekend get together with a group of women. The room we had was very large and it never felt cramped. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was also very roomy. The small kitchen was a bonus. This is not close to nightlife but it was right down the street from the apartment... More

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Is it ritzy and new and shiny? No. But it's clean, comfortable, affordable and accommodating, especially for groups and families. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was helpful and went out of their way to do whatever they could to make our stay better. We had a few maintenance issues but they... More

Terrible service. Forced us an upgrade because it convinced us that the room was small. Almost every day someone would call from reception very early. The manager was very rude when we question the value of the upgrade. They did a lot of confusion. The hall is noisy. The street is noisy, dirty and smelly. Never again.

We were in town for a while and wanted a place that felt like home and had a few added amenities (kitchen, room to relax.) If you are looking for a happening scene with a hip bar, trendy clientele, free WIFI, and awesome room service, this is not the hotel for you. If you want a quiet and large room... More

Over the past six months, I have spent more time at the Affinia Gardens than at home, due to business commitments. In that time, my Affinia "family" have done everything possible to make me feel comfortable, from everyday kindnesses to above-and-beyond assistance. At the front-desk, Vasylyna and Nino provide a warm welcome and intuitive service. Krys, Sal and Mike run... More

Stayed with my husband for a mini anniversary getaway, had a great time at the Affinia Gardens, our suite was clean and spacious, service was great, and location was practical on a fairly quiet street but still close to a lot of restaurants, Central Park, etc. Will be back!
