Second time stay at Affinia Gardens with my husband and two adult children. Staff are friendly and helpful. We had a pleasant stay during November/December 2013. Close to good restaurants and easy access to transport.

First stay at the Affinia Gardens, great location for a "girls getaway weekend." Four of us stayed in a one bedroom suite, and it was spacious. Loved everything about the hotel, the location and the super friendly staff, they just couldn't do enough for us. Yes they are renovating, all the better for the guests at a later date, but they waited until after 9 am on Monday morning to start the work, now that's customer service.
Will definitely return.

Wife & I have stay here sev'l times per year, usually at least a week at a time. If the upper east side is where you want to be, this hotel cannot be beat, we think, at almost any price. Walking distance to best shopping in the city, Central Park, & Cornell Medical Center/NY Hospital. Clean. Comfortable. In center of the block on street (not avenue) so very quiet for NYC. Very well appointed. Gigantic rooms hardly typical for NYC particularly at anywhere near this price. Full kitchen very convenient. Complimentary exercise room & tea/coffee in lounge 24/7. Extremely attentive & friendly staff, yet no one with hand out all the time for tips. This is not a pretentious place. That is a compliment. If you are looking for the trappings & aura that come with the $1000+/night type places, this hotel may not be for you. Only negative we can think of - - - WiFi is way too pricey.

2nd time at the Affinia Gardens, who accommodated us for an extra night when we arrived in New York early because of storm. We stayed in a junior Suite which gave us a full size kitchen, and lounge area. Plenty of space to spread out, and the hotel was spotlessly clean. Great location on upper east side, in a quiet residential area, with plenty of restaurants nearby, subway is 5 minute walk. Great supermarket on Cnr 3rd & 64th had everything we needed, including great ready made meals, that you could take home and heat up if you wished. Laundry on site is also a bonus. All the staff were friendly and helpful, Michael the bellman, was great helping us get taxis and unloaded and load our large amount of luggage, whenever you came or went, he made a point of speaking to you and really made you feel welcome.

This was our second stay. Once in a one bedroom suite and once in a junior suite. Beds and pillows very comfortable. Suite very clean. Wonderful to have a kitchen. Food store very close by.
Staff extremely friendly and helpful. We were on 8th floor and could hear street noises. Wifi is an extra charge. Kitchen could use a toaster oven rather than old fashioned toaster. Despite these minor issues we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Upper floors to decrease street noise

My family loves staying at Affinia Gardens Hotel, we were treated like it was our building. The upper east side location is perfect. The staff was exceptional, especially Pedro and attentive to all of our needs. Frankly, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.
