Terrible service. Forced us an upgrade because it convinced us that the room was small. Almost every day someone would call from reception very early. The manager was very rude when we question the value of the upgrade. They did a lot of confusion. The hall is noisy. The street is noisy, dirty and smelly. Never again.

We were in town for a while and wanted a place that felt like home and had a few added amenities (kitchen, room to relax.) If you are looking for a happening scene with a hip bar, trendy clientele, free WIFI, and awesome room service, this is not the hotel for you. If you want a quiet and large room... More

Over the past six months, I have spent more time at the Affinia Gardens than at home, due to business commitments. In that time, my Affinia "family" have done everything possible to make me feel comfortable, from everyday kindnesses to above-and-beyond assistance. At the front-desk, Vasylyna and Nino provide a warm welcome and intuitive service. Krys, Sal and Mike run... More

The Affinia Gardens continues to be our Manhattan home away from home. Our experience was fantastic on this return trip, as it has always been in the past. We received a warm welcome and much help from the bellmen Krys, Sal, and Michael, from the manager Pedro, and from Caprice at the front desk. Whenever we needed something (e.g., extra... More

Stayed with my husband for a mini anniversary getaway, had a great time at the Affinia Gardens, our suite was clean and spacious, service was great, and location was practical on a fairly quiet street but still close to a lot of restaurants, Central Park, etc. Will be back!

The hotel is well located, the rooms are large and confortable. Most of the staff is friendly. But some of the staff is not. When I made the reservation it said and still says: “Now when booking your room online on affinia.com receive complimentary Wi-Fi during your stay.”. Not exactly. It covers only one device.
