“Loved our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

My girlfriend and I went to see a play, but we had friends living in and visiting the area at the same time. We stayed 5 days and needed a place to congregate and entertain...our suite was perfect! It was like a small condo apartment. It had a spacious and very comfortable living room to put your feet up, rest and talk (didn't use the sleeper sofa), a small but very well equipped kitchen (prepare breakfast or a snack, keep restaurant leftovers, store deli purchases), a large bathroom with plenty of counter space and a lighted magnifying mirror, a bedroom with two queen beds, a wall of windows in the living room and the bedroom with a great view of NY skyline. The elevators worked well (room on 35th floor), not a single staff complaint (everyone friendly and accommodating), location near subway, diner around the corner, deli next door, quiet neighborhood near east river, short $7 cab ride to the theater. When I read another review that said the hotel is not luxury, it made me a anxious, but I shouldn't have wasted a minute worrying. It is not the Ritz, but clean, comfortable, and a nice place to come back to. We loved it! We each surfed the net long and hard for a great deal for what we wanted and we found everything at the Affinia Dumont. We wanted a living room, kitchen and a bedroom with two beds. None of the discount websites offered a bedroom with two beds (just one king or one queen), but we got a great rate at the hotel's website--wish we could have stayed longer.

We traveled with 2 other families to NYC and stayed in Affinia Dumont. Got a great deal from Priceline. The manager gave us upgrades from the studio to 2 queen bed rooms. This hotel was great for our large group and for the kids. Excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff. HUGE room/suite for NYC. Walking distance to the subway, Macy's, Bryant Park. Dunkin Donuts is right outside the hotel, grocery store and fruit vendors are nearby. Would definitely stay here again!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

I've traveled to NYC fo business occasionally and stayed in a range of business and boutique hotels. But the Affinia Dumont fits a different niche--family vacations--perfectly.

Advantages--location is walkable to many destinations, having a small kitchen space is invaluable, staff is pleasant, plenty of closet/dresser space to unpack, good desk/workspace. And did I mention the rooms are HUGE.

Drawbacks, and they're not dealbreakers--the slightly off-the-beaten-path location means it can be a little tricky to hail a cab (there wasn't the usual queue waiting), there's no wi-fi (had to use a cable--I hadn't seen that in a hotel for several years), and the televisions are old tube-style (again, can't remember when I last saw this in a hotel room).

It's not heavy on atmosphere and amenities, but the rooms are clean and comfortable and by New York standards they're positively palatial. I found this hotel on a "best luxury hotels" list, and to be totally honest it's not at all a luxury hotel. But it is a nice, comfortable place to stay and the rates are crazy good.

We would highly recommend this hotel and cant wait to go back!!
We were very unsure what to expect from any hotel in New York. It was our first visit and to be honest I chose this one because the beds looked nice and big.
The hotel was just FANTASTIC the staff so friendly, not pushy. The room very spacious and we had our own little kitchen fitted with a proper cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and stocked with glases, plates, cutlery etc.
We had a very big TV in our room and it felt very much like you were in your own appartment.
The situation of the hotel could not be better for getting around and the rooms are soundproofed so we had no noise at all from other guest walking past, using lifts etc.

On my first trip to NYC, I was really nervous about accomodations. Fortunately, my coworker and I made the last minute decision to stay at the Affinia Dumont. We do not regret it! We were there for 2 weeks and everyone was ALWAYS so nice and friendly. It was so comfortable to come home from a long day at school to this great hotel with its great neighborhood. The corner market was memorable also, because people there were very friendly as well. Loved the robe, the weights brought to the room, the pillow menu and the gym...it was everything I needed!

Just got back form the Big Apple and thought the Affinia Dumont deserved special recognition. We had a wonderful stay here. The staff went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable, the room was surprisingly large and comfortable and the Murray Hill location was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to NYC.

We stayed for the weekend for our anniversary. The hotel upgraded our room and provided a complimentary bottle of wine. Every staffer was very helpful. Each floor has only six rooms so you feel like you have some privacy. The rooms were very clean, and it has a kitchenette so you can bring food home if you like. The work out room has weights and cardio equipments to satisfy anyone. The location is not middle of Times Square, but that was a plus for us. There are nice restaurants and bars only one street down. And, it is conveniently close to the green line. My wife and I highly recommend this hotel, especially for couples.
