Overall a clean and quiet space in the middle of the hectic city. I had a problem with my room and Glenda, a front desk representative, went out of her way to find me a room that met my expectations.

We were in town only for a museum weekend and the Affinia was perfect. VERY spacious rooms (especially for NYC), staff was accommodating when we arrived a little earlier than expected and wanted to check in early. Clean rooms with up-to-date furnishings, comfortable bed, close to good restaurants and shopping. I would stay here again in a minute.

Third time staying at Affinia Gardens. Rooms are very tranquil, clean and spacious. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Chris, the bellman always remembers us. Shefi at front desk always gets us in right away. The location is the best. Will look forward to returning.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Affinia Gardens.

I was pleasantly surprised by the room and so our group decided to stay in... More

Dear MissyHA, I am so sorry to hear that the room type you had booked was unavailable.

I apologize that we were not able to give you... More
