I recently spent five nights at Affinia Gardens with my sisters. We had a deluxe one-bedroom suite for the three of us, which gave us tons of space. Everything was clean, well equipped and well maintained. The unit was so comfortable and spacious that we hated to go back home! The day before we left we entertained several members of... More

Excellent Upper East side location. Large, functional, practical room with kitchen. All amenities, including iron and ironing board. Very cheerful, helpful staff, especially Pedro. We were assigned a room on early arrival and luggage held for us for late departure. Great value for money. Look forward to coming back.

Very good hotel, very large rooms for NYC, convenient for families with kids. Very kind and helpful staff, especially Sal and Nino. Perfect location in the middle of elegant upper east side, steps away from lexington ave, Madison and 5th ave shops. Looking forward to coming back here soon! Alessio from London

We were a little worried about being too far from the main attractions but I'm so glad we decided to stay here. There's not much a lobby but staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was ENORMOUS. It was a great area to wander around in and it was easy to catch a cab to the other sites we... More

Big comfortable room with full kitchen. Appreciated the fridge for fruit, medicine, water; coffee in the morning. Great for families, although we loved it just as a couple. 3rd and East 64th is not right in the center of things, but an easy walk everywhere, and there were very nice boutiques on 3rd Ave. Terrific, helpful staff. We've stayed in... More

Wonderful location just a few blocks from central park. The staff are the best. We were on a 3 week many city vacation and this was our favorite hotel by far. They even went and got me some dryer sheets so I could do my laundry. Top notch.

I loved this hotel. My room was huge. I had always heard the rooms were so tiny in NYC! This was like an apartment. It had to be 500 sq ft. It had a kitchen. It was clean. Bedbug free. Close to groceries, stores, restaurants, the subway. The staff was friendly during the booking process, and friendly during my stay.... More

Staff, including Pedro @ the front desk, Chris the bellman and all housekeeping were pleasant, efficient and followed through on all requests. The rooms include a separate kittchen with dishes and cutlery, making it easy for longer stays. My room (#602) had a lovely view of trees - an unusual treat in Manhattan.
