We got off on the wrong foot with the Gardens Affina. We arrived at 2PM after a long drive, before the official checkin time of 3PM. While we could easily understand that no rooms were yet available, the man on reception was unhelpful/unsympathetic. Several people were waiting in the lobby and we soon discovered that there is a single unisex... More

We spent a week at the Gardens. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, that included a bedroom with two queen beds, a kitchen and a living room with a pull out sofa. I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. My wife, though, thought the room could use an update. To be honest, the kitchen looked like something from the... More

Spent 5 days at the Gardens NYC, found the staff to be extremely helpful prior to our arrival, which continued the moment we arrived through to our departure. The hotel is in a great location, quiet neighbourhood, good restaurants and just a short walk to central park or the subway for access to all NYC attractions. Good apprtment size room

Having stayed at so many other places in NYC, I can't believe how large the rooms are! Such a great location to Central Park, shopping, and the closest you can get to the subway on the UES... will definitely be back!

This is the perfect hotel if you are visiting Marymount. It is sort of like an apartment. I stayed here last year and returned with my family this year. It ended up okay and it's a nice, clean family hotel. I love the kitchenette and the large room, and Opheila (our room maid) was very accommodating. We had asked for... More

Our family of 5 had a fabulous time staying in our Junior suite with patio for 4 nights while visiting New York City.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
