We stayed at Affinia Gardens for a second time. The location works well for us, and the rooms are large and comfortable. We booked the suite with two queens, and for three of us with lots of suitcases, there was plenty of room. The staff is excellent, and very helpful. The front desk staff was quite helpful with directions and... More

I chose the Affinia Gardens as a result of all the positive reviews. We arrived very early in the morning on the 14th August after a 15 hour flight. Understandably we had to wait for a room to be ready but instead the staff at the front desk tried to "sell"us bigger rooms on low floors. I was tempted as... More

Four good friends stayed in a double/double and found it more than satisfactory. The room was large and we all had room to function without being on top of each other. The staff was more than accommodating from the moment we arrived to the morning we left. I cannot say enough about the bell staff, they were so very helpful... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with our daughter, the room was great, with the added bonus of a kitchen we were able to take home our restaurant leftovers. The staff were very helpful. The area was safe, we could walk to a huge variety of restaruants for any meal and even walk back from dinner and feel safe.... More

We stayed in a junior suite with two adults and our son, enough space, very clean, cheerful and helpful staff and a great location. Close to Central Park, shopping, subway. I'm used to business hotels but this was better at a much more agreeable price. Again, staff is awesome

We had six in our party and the room was large enough to accommodate for our first trip to Manhattan. The service was exceptional especially Kris and Nigel. I would recommend this hotel. We did need to walk a bit but found it easy to get to where we needed.

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.
