Stayed at this Hotel from September 9 to 24, the staff were excellent and always ready to assist in any way. In particular Kris and Caprice both went out of their way to provide efficient friendly service over and above what you would expect

As an apartment conversion you get amenities (kitchen, separate sitting room) not found in most NYC hotels. It is functional, clean and the staff is very good.The Lex Ave subway is close, lots of nearby restaurant choices and handy to many midtown attractions. We use Affinia Gardens all the time.

Fabulous one bedroom suite, staff very helpful and friendly (including Kris the bellman)! So easy to get anywhere in NYC by Metro - one block away. Great shopping nearby - Bloomingdales, Sephora, etc! Walk to Central Park, Madison Ave, 5th Ave, Lexington Ave. Some fab restaurants nearby - try Felidia's (exquisite Italian) 243 East 58th St NYC.

We were pleasantly surprised when our room at Affinia Gardens turned out to be bigger and better than expected. It was very comfortable and the kitchenette was fine for cooking breakfasts and simple meals. The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to find out information for us as requested. There was free wi fi for one... More

what the hotel shows in the website has nothing to do with what you are expecting to find at the hotel. It is very old and the rooms need a very urgent remodelation. The carpets are old and dirty, the rooms smell. When we arrived to our room we had to ask to have our bathroom and kitchen to get... More

This is our first stay at the Affinia Gardens and we will be back. Staff was very helpful, especially Kris our Bellman. We have already scheduled our next stay in December. The hotel was clean (even though it was Pet friendly).

This is perfect if you want quiet. No real lobby or restaurant, not a party or mingling place. Suggest this for travelers just needing a nice comfortable place to stay. Staff is great. Stayed twice so far and the beds and pillows are wonderful. Both times I was just as comfy as my own bedroom. Also like the vanity shelf... More

Love the gigantic apartment style rooms with kitchens. We stayed here for a weekend conference and loved the location -- close to yummy food, fun museums and while it's a bit of a trek to midtown, it is a fun walk! I think my favorite hotel in Manhattan.
