We chose this hotel based on location to Family in the area and friends that had stayed. The first thing to note is that the rooms are enormous by New York standards, we had a basic room which had a small kitchen, living room area with sofa bed and a nice Bath/shower room. There are no views to speak of... More

For the last 25 years we are staying at Affinia Gardens, former Leyden Gardens and it always feels like coming home. The entire staff of the hotel could not be friendlier and more helpful and it is situated in a great neighborhood.

We lived in NYC for 10 years until 2012, and we were just back the first weekend in December for a wedding, and some holiday fun, with two toddlers (4 and 2 years old).

Another wonderful stay at the Affinia Gardens. Yet again the staff, kris, caprice and deanna all exceeded in my expectations of service. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen is a huge bonus especially when travelling with two small children. Beds are comfy and rooms are peaceful too.

I was in The Gardens with my family (wife and a 2 year baby) and we loved our stay. The area is beautiful, out of the freak-out of the tourist centers of Manhattan, walking distance to Central Park (in the Zoo street). Few dining options in the area, but good, and a Food Emporium on the corner and the Garage... More

Very clean, quiet and spacious rooms. Nice decor, and modern furnishings. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, and the location was perfect for me. I had easy access to Central Park and 5th avenue, as well as the hospital to visit my aunt.

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.
