4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Overall we were very pleasantly surprised by quality of hotel..staff were very friendly and extremely helpful..the kitchenette was a big plus to store our extras like juice, pop and milk....very convenient for sight seeing and most places within walking distance...found a fab little cafe up the road called Gi Gi's where breakfast was excellent...Will hopefully be returning...xx

We stayed at the Affinia Dumont for the weekend of the NYC Marathon. As a first time runner from a small city north of Boston, I was very anxious and overwhelmed coming into the city. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by Juber Rahman, who instantly made us feel at ease. I'm honestly not sure what his title was within the hotel, but Affinia should give the man a bonus--he was AWESOME. Juber remembered us by name, joked around with us, gave us tips of where to go....just everything. It was one of the best experiences I have had traveling. The hotel itself was fantastic, centrally located with incredibly spacious rooms. Thank you so much for making my 1st NYC Marathon trip so great--and thank you Juber for being so amazing. It almost made us Yankee fans:))

Dear tjsportsmouth,

What a fantastic review! First of all, congratulations on your 1st NYC Marathon – what an accomplishment! It’s always a bit overwhelming going into an unknown city and staying at a place you’ve never stayed before, and in your case, attending such an important and high-profile event, however, I am thrilled that your first marathon experience was a great one and that our team contributed to that great experience. And next time, we’ll make sure you ARE Yankees fans! We thank you for staying with us and sincerely look forward to your next visit!

Sincerely,
Alex Spektor

Spent four nights at Affinia Dumont in a one bedroom suite with my family in September 2013. The TripAdvisor rating had me expecting for a better experience but in my eyes this was just a very expensive 3-star hotel: OK but not great.

So the rooms were spacious and the kitchenette was nice. It was really useful for a family with small kids, we really liked that.

The main bed was comfortable but still the overall feeling in the room was a little outdated. The extra bed that cost 30$ a night (!!) had really filthy and dirty legs and wheels. The windows (19th floor, facing east) were extremely dirty outside.

The worst thing was a huge cockroach we had in our living room and that scared the hell out of our 3 year old. We travel a lot and are kind of used to them but not at a hotel that charges more than 400$ a night.

The restaurant that the hotel uses for in-room dining (not located at the hotel) was a huge disappointment. We paid 65$ for two pastas and a chicken. It was almost cold and sorry to say, it felt like the food was made by a 15 year old. We felt robbed.

Overall I felt that ca 1800$ for four nights in Affinia Dumont's one bedroom suite was not a good deal for us.

The room was excelent. New and fresh. The cleaning of the room was outstanding.
Perfect location and very nice with the free wine in lobby between 5-6 pm. We will stay here also the next time we go to NY.

We stayed in a Junior Suite which contained a lounge area (sofa and chair) and a large desk and office chair. The room also contained a small kitchenette - enough to make a simple meal (e.g. breakfast) and store some food.

The large king size bed was very comfortable and the pillow menu made it a little more personalised. The bathroom was functional and clean.

Our view was across the East River to Queens and we were fortunate enough to view spectacular sunrises every morning. The window to the north showed the Chrysler building in all her glory.

My one negative of the hotel is the noise - 34th is a busy street that is used by emergency services frequently. Coming from a quiet location, there were some times the noise becoming a little annoying (like at 3am!). I realise there is nothing the hotel can do about this - but prospective guests should be aware.

The staff from check-in, to the room staff, to the door staff were all super friendly, and on the couple of occasions we did require assistance it was done promptly and with a smile.

The Murray Hill location provides easy access to Mid town (5-10min walk to ESB and Grand Central), and a couple of minutes to the 33rd St subway for the 6 line (north-south).

I would (I already have!) recommend this hotel to others who want a larger room at a reasonable price in a great location.

Dear Vossy3207,

Thank you for staying with us and writing us this great review!
You are absolutely right, the Affinia Dumont has some of the most spacious suites in New York City. Many of them feel more like apartments rather than NYC hotel rooms. And yes, our Skyline Suites offer some of the most breathtaking views – the sunrises and sunsets are priceless! We hope that we’ll see you again soon!

Sincerely,
Alex Spektor
