“Less than professional”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Very disappointed with this hotel. They gave both me and a total stranger (a man!) the same room key. This is a major issue for a business woman. Will not be staying here again as a result.
Added to this, the towel I left on the floor one day was not laundered, it was hung up. The water pressure in the shower was pitiful. The decaf coffee was not replenished the next day after I used the only bag provided. The room size was good however.

As a birthday gift to their mother, our two daughters and granddaughter planned a Girls' Weekend in New York. We chose the Affinia 50 for its central location, the comfortable suite, good service, and nice wine hour. Our stay was greatly enhanced by the service provided by the Bellman, Rome. He is such a gentleman, always wore a smile, and treated us like family! We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: The biggest benefit is the proximity to the various landmarks. There are also many good restaurants...

We arrived slightly early and was allowed to check in straight away and we were upgraded. Thank you Edwardo!

Room was clean spacious and had fridge kitchenette etc. everyday we were left fresh towels and room was cleaned spotless every day.

The two doorman were lovely and friendly and were always willing to help. One always said 'welcome home' which was a nice touch.

Location wise it was great! Short walk to rocka fella 10mins max. And time square is only 15mins from hotel.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Tips - don't buy wifi as you get it in the lobby reception area free of charge. (Lots of comfy sofas too so you can relax and use the wifi) room included shower gel shampoo conditioner body lotion hair dryer etc so no need to take that! Try the free wine night, lovely wine!

This wasn't my first stay at Affinia 50. I always liked the hotel. They have suites with nice kitchens and a reasonable cost-benefit. But they have an issue with air conditioning. We arrived at last april 17. The weather was sunny and hot, about 28 centigrades. But, inside it was hotter. But the air conditioning only worked in heat function.
When I complain they sad that the air conditioning system was not working cause of the season. They sad that in winter the air conditioning only works in heat mode, in summer in cold mode and between seasons it does not work anyway.
I said to then that that was an hotel and not a school or a prison where someone in charge rules above others. People has different needs and that is the point of you have an individual control of air conditioning in each room.
The staff tried to help and they moved us to the affinia gardens(where they have the same problem, but the person in charge changed the air conditioning system to cool).
I don't think that a hotel that claims to have "air conditioning" could work this way.
So, you don't like to sweat, Affinia, only on summer...

This hotel is great! We had a junior suite on the 16th floor. The room was very clean, modern yet very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. The complimentary wine hour every night was a nice surprise.

Stayed here with my mom and sisters for a girls' weekend getaway, and really enjoyed it. The location is great and near to the subway for easy travel throughout the city. We loved the wine happy hour in the afternoon. It was so great to get back to our "home base" at the hotel after daytime sightseeing and have some time to relax with (free) wine and snacks before our evening activities.

The beds and room were comfortable. My only complaint would be that it was a little loud. The first night the TV was on in a neighboring room and we could hear it through the wall the entire night.

Room was clean, bed and pillows comfortable, location right in mid town. All good except the room varied between 78-80 degrees. Tried the thermostat and when it didn't work, the front desk confirmed that "at this time of year the building is on central air so the thermostat won't work". They immediately offered to open my windows and bring up a fan. My guess is that I was the 14th guest who called with the same complaint. They are probably used to delivering a fan and opening the windows.....I was on 4th floor and a friend was on 11 and she had the same issue. Other than that, nice place.
