4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

This hotel is located within easy walking distance of Central Park in a 'quieter' area of New York. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Pedro sorted tickets and advised on how to access the subway etc. My only criticism is that the rooms need a refurb.

Affiliate Gardens NYC offers good value, friendly staff and nice little lobby. Though if you are looking for luxury or a quaint neighborhood boutique hotel this won't be your spot. The rooms and bedding are clean and neat but decor a bit tired. Large rooms available for families. Our room was good sized with both a bedroom, lounge area and... More

Affinia is a solid choice for a budget hotel in NYC. It caters to the business traveller: very basic--in need of updating--but with clean spacious rooms and pleasant staff that go out of the way to accommodate guests. This hotel would usually get 3 points from me. Unfortunately, on my last visit there were 2 huge trailers right on the... More

Hello Barbara R, Thank you for staying with us at the Gardens. We completely understand the aggravation with the noise from the work across the street at the hospital. They are due to be complete in the next week or so, certainly by the end of September. We will surely do our best to assign guests away from the noise... More

The bathrooms are super small, carpet is worn, walls are dirty, dishwasher wasn't accessible because of hardware on cupboards/drawers, and the rooms need facelift!The only good thing about this place is the location.

Overall it was good! Really good location, close to subway stations, great rooms. Shower wasn't clean, NO free wi-fi and only 1 elevator working on such a busy weekend. Location kind of makes up for those small things.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a safe and comfortable neighborhood in which to stay. It's quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, but close enough to access within a few minutes. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable.

If you wish to stay in this wonderful part of NYC, I highly recommend this hotel. Even though this is a part of a group of hotels (maybe 5?) under the Affinia label, the hotel has a family feel. Our quiet balcony suite was wonderful with tons of room. If you need anything, they take care of you. Deanna Coudounas,... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
